Linens and towels are free, a blanket is a $2 deposit, but it's New Orleans. . .you won't need a blanket, trust me. Bathrooms are outside for the private rooms, inside for the dorms. The showers are outside as well, though if you're lucky enough, there is one inside! You have full access to the kitchen (just mark your stuff), the pool, and the laundry (50 cents a load). The Internet is $1 for ten minutes, TV room with PlayStation is free, and the staff are all very nice. Tandy the cat bites, so leave her be! Best of all, it's right around the corner from Canal Street. Just take the bus up to the Quarter, if that's your destination.

There are a couple of common rooms, including a huge TV and video. Outdoors in the courtyard, there are several picnic tables, another set of toilets and showers for the bunks in the cabins, and a swimming pool. Sadly, and contrary to the website, the alligators are no more.
The building is pretty run-down--plaster flakes from the ceiling kept falling down in my room. But the walls are covered in colorful murals and it's all part of the atmosphere here. Despite the slight grimness, it's a great place to stay. India House is really relaxed and friendly and I had a good time here. If you're looking for an experience rather than just a place to sleep, I'd reccommend staying here.
