House Rules

Site 61 Hostel – House Rules

For your safety and protection, we are continuing many of the precautionary measures that were initiated during the height of the Covid pandemic. Hand sanitizer and spray disinfectant are available in the common areas. Extra disposable masks are also available.

Every day, a staff member will clean and sanitize frequently-touched surfaces in the common rooms.

Use of the kitchen may be limited. You have the option of keeping your dishes and silverware in a separate, personal container. Or you can access dishes on the open shelves.

You can store your dry food in one of the kitchen lockers. A shared refrigerator is available. Items placed in the refrigerator must be in a clearly labeled box/bag.

Don’t walk away! from any unwashed dishes. Wash, dry and put away all your dishes and pans. Do not leave dirty dishes in the sink.

Cooking is permitted only in the kitchen (not in the individual rooms), and only with the appliances and cookware that are available for common use.

No frying in the indoor kitchen (like fried chicken).
There are cooking facilities in the outdoor kitchen.

No illegal activity will be tolerated. No harassment, stalking, theft,
or consuming items purchased by other guests.

You can assure that your assigned room and bathroom remain secure and private only if you keep the doors locked. The building owners and management are not responsible for loss or damage to any items left in the common areas or in an unlocked room.

For your security: ONLY registered guests are allowed upstairs.
Visitors of guests may be admitted downstairs ONLY
with the manager’s knowledge and approval.
Do NOT open or “hold” the door for anyone you do not know..

Cameras: are watching and recording all public areas: lobby, hallways, stairs, streets.

Alcohol must be consumed in moderation only. No public drunkeness.

Furniture: No furniture, household goods or appliances belonging to the Guest may be moved into the building. Furniture provided by the Hostel must not be moved without Written permission of Management.

Housekeeping: If you have reserved a private room and private bath for 7 days or more, a housekeeper will clean the room and bathroom every 7-10 days. The cleaning appointment will be set up at least 24 hours in advance. Please consolidate your personal items—especially electronics– in order to facilitate cleaning floors, changing beds, etc.

Quiet hours: Sun-Thurs 11PM-7AM … and … Fri & Sat 12AM-7AM

Close the shower curtain so water stays inside the shower.

Smoking is permitted only in outdoor areas.

Pets are not allowed on the premises.

P2P File Sharing/Torrents: File sharing on the Hostel network is not allowed. The offending device will be blocked from further internet access at the Hostel

Safety Tips

Girls: Prostitution is illegal, but was prevalent in this area. If someone follows you on the street, he is not likely to be dangerous, just annoying.

Guys: The French Quarter is full of girls who seem to be very friendly, but are actually picking your pocket.

As with any big city, keep your wits about you and you should be fine.
