Good value for the money and excellent staff!


Beautiful place to stay. Joyness! Near the centre, clean and nice people. What do you prefer more?


worst hostel I've ever been to for pretty much every reason you can think of. relatively cheap, tho. you wouldn't really call it a hostel


Mainly chose this hostel because it was the cheapest I could find... The buildings were creepily empty (yes, it was during the off season), we weren't provided with any blankets, there were no lockers in the room and the bathroom wasn't very clean. The only upside was nice views of Avignon from the river outside the hostel and convenient location, 5 minute walk to the centrevile.

Can't check in till 5pm but they really don't offer any assistance to store bags unless you ask and point out that the sign says there are lockers here somewhere! No kitchen facilities. Beds comfy, good pressured showers. Super annoying cat that wanders into rooms looking for food

Our microsite mentions check-in opening time. We can keep free luggage after check-out (except fm 13:30 to 17:00). Otherwise camping paying lockers.


its more for camping with basic facitities


The beds were fairly comfortable but our room was cold and had no lockers. The showeing facitilities were very basic. Overall, basic accommodation which was reflected in the price. Would recommend but for no more than one night

Bonjour, heating will be settled from November 1st Personal valuable to be given to reception for keeping in our general safe. Cordially,


Quite a trip from the station if you walk but it's in a great location. Very friendly staff with a nice restaurant/café just outside. The wifi was a bit of a let down but otherwise a great spot!


The plus side is the location... directly across the water from easily accessable avignon. The staff was average at best and not being able to Check in till 5:30pm was totally absurd.

Hostel reception closed between 14:00 and 17:00. Important to read information we give, in the description part, of our hostelworld microsite. Not the fault of the staff. Cordially


Nice place to stay for one or two nights. The room could be more clean. You have to pay for wifi...

info on wifi : in rear season (except july) 1.50 euros for 24 hours / 2.50 euros for 3 days, so very cheap. Wifi free on the terrace of the "cafe" in drinking something.


Clean and cozy hostel. I didn't expect this hostel to be comfortable. But it really was

Hostel was OK, cheapest in area, but no lockers thouhg.


Basic facilities but clean - great location - within a camping ground...certainly not expensive - there was god live music at the cafe/ restaurant which is the reception office - also a bonus.

Correct for the price, but no services, no kitchen, no living room where to meet other travelers, the rooms are quite ok, could be cleaner, and the toilets too, but could be cleaner too. The good thing are the prices.


Staff were a bit and a bit lacking, but functional and good as a budget bed for a night.

Lots of people hanging out outside by the river all night,loud music and shouting. Other than that, great value for money


Not as bad as we were expecting! We stayed in the hostel just one night as we were passing through Avignon. Beds are comfy, rooms are clean, and it's cheap which is what we wanted. Really close to the historical city. Have to rent a locker which is a bit of a pain. I think this is great for one night but if I wouldn't recommend if you were staying longer - there is no vibe, it's mostly just a campsite. Only place to hang out is by the cafe and the wifi is pretty bad.


This place is ideal for 1 or 2 nights, because of its affordability and location, but any longer than that, and the lack of wifi, kitchen/fridge or lockers will become an issue. The staff speak little English, and aren't the friendliest, but they're not flat out rude or anything. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the bathrooms are adequate. And is only a short walk across the bridge to old town. Perfect for a short stay.


The location of this hostel is great- by the river with a view of the St Benezet bridge and Popes palace and only a 5 minute walk into the city walls. The rooms, toilets and showers are spotlessly clean, but the shower was not great and tiny... the pressure was too powerful without an adjustable head so everywhere got soaked. There was also no air con or fan in the little rooms so we boiled! You have to pay for wifi per person and it doesn't even work in the rooms, only the cafe so not worth it!


It was a surprising excellent stay in the hot weather of Avignon two steps in front of the its hotest and most famous bridge. Best location ever ! J'aime ces vitraux au-dessus du bar et des charmants réceptionnistes/barwomen :)
