Overview of Hostel
The Auberge owner and staff can’t wait to meet you and ensure that you have the best possible stay in New Orleans. We have nightly parties and a great atmosphere. Located in Lower Garden District, directly between the Garden District and the French Quarter. One block from main transportation Stre
**Directions to our hostel from the airport:**
The quickest way for two people or more is to take a taxi. The rate is $36 for 1-2 people and it goes up in price from there.
You may also take an Uber or Lyft for around $33.
A little longer, but slightly more affordable way for a single person is to take the Airport Shuttle. This is $24 per person. You can either visit http://www.airportshuttleneworleans.com/ or find their kiosk right outside of baggage claim at the airport. Tell them you are staying at the Auberge NOLA, you may have to spell it correctly for them.
You can also take public transportation which involves the E2 bus, then the Canal Streetcar, then the St. Charles Streetcar. You will want to get off of the Streetcar on Euterpe street. Ask the driver as there is no warning. You walk on Euterpe one block north to Carondelet (also named Robert C. Blakes Sr. Drive) and you will see us on your right. This is not a good option for early morning or late departures and arrivals.
*NEW A new option has recently started. It is the 202 bus directly from the airport to the Amtrak Greyhound Megabus station. It runs 9 times per day and would drop you off at Union Station. Use the directions below to get from the station to our hostel.
**Directions from Union Passenger Terminal - Amtrak, Greyhound, and Megabus**
Leave UPT and walk straight down Howard Ave. 4 blocks to Lee Circle. Take a right on St. Charles Avenue. Walk 7 blocks to Euterpe and take a right. Walk one block to Carondelet Street (also Robert C. Blakes Sr. Drive) and we will be on your right. Follow these directions rather than your phones directions for the safest most well lit path to our hostel..
I am very proud of our location. The Auberge is in an area called 'The Lower Garden District' which is very centrally located in town. Our location is in the commercial area of St. Charles Avenue so supplies and drinks will be easily found. We are sandwiched between Uptown and Downtown New Orleans. Uptown New Orleans contains Garden District, St. Charles Avenue, Unis w/ nightlife, Audubon Park and Zoo, and Magazine St. - Downtown has the French Quarter, Frenchmen, and CBD all with nightlife.
