    Description

    Thank you for visiting our page!
    I am May, the manager of New Orlean's newest hostel.

    The house was originally built in 1831. It is beautifully decorated and furnished, describing the architectural characteristics of the old New Orleans' houses. As we are proud of the details of the house, we would like you to enjoy every part of it.
