We stayed here with a Trek America group as part of a coast to coast tour. The atmosphere was lovely and the outside of the building is exactly what I expected of Louisiana with the rocking chairs on the porch. The dorms were basic which was fine by us, a bed is a bed. It was comfy but the only thing that let it down was the fact our bunk creaked every time we moved. Still that's hardly an issue.
I think of the whole tour this was my favourite place to stay, it had so much character, the people were friendly it was just a home away from home which is massively important when you're on the other side of the world. The kitchen was big although we didn't get chance to use it and the bathroom was clean. It was so much nicer than the usual boring chain hotels.
If you like all the comforts of a hotel you probably won't be happy here, there aren't fancy soaps or widescreen tv's but if all you want is somewhere you feel safe, can maybe make a few friends and get a good nights sleep then this place is great. I'd happily stay here again.
