Five of us (male, mid-20s) stayed here for a week and couldn't be happier with the setup.
It's a big old house right in the middle of the Faubourg Marigny neighbourhood (next to the French Quarter). Great vibe in the area; lots of 20s-30s, arty hipster-types, plenty of good dive bars, restaurants and live music.
Easy walk to Bourbon street and Frenchmen street for when you want your "NEW ORLEANS!", beads and hand grenades time, but also perfect for hanging out with locals and seeing a bit of the city that tourists tend to miss.
The place has a big courtyard in the back, plenty of bathrooms, shared lounge area with tea/coffee etc, and all the WIFI you could want to google "happy hour specials new orleans monday".
We stayed in Old Europe (downstairs, with a private door onto the courtyard) and Cowboy (upstairs, with an ensuite), both of which came with huge beds, a TV and all the space you need.
Kim and Charley manage the property and live on-site. Up there with the most helpful landlords I've ever had. They're West Coast transplants, very chilled, available pretty much whenever you need them, drove us to the airport at 5am in the morning (for a small fee, much less than a taxi) and always happy have a beer and a laugh in the courtyard.
Creole was a great find, much more fun than just another hostel and perfect for groups/couples as you can book out entire rooms.
