Blue Moon Guest House
Lonely Planet review
This tidy old home is one of Louisiana's travel gems, an upscale hostel-like hangout, walking distance from downtown. Snag a bed and you'll be on the guest list for Lafayette's most popular down-home music venue, located in the backyard. The friendly owners, full kitchen, and camaraderie among guests create a unique music-meets-migration environment catering to backpackers, flashpackers and those in transition (flashbackpackers?). Prices skyrocket during festival time.
