Nice and comfortable room, and easy access to the town city via tram. Definitely good value for money if you're looking for budget accommodation in Bordeaux. We would stay here again!

Understand that this hostel is a room on the ground floor of a family home, with the family apartment on the second floor. It is not equipped with wifi. There is a small kitchenette in the room, and the hosts will let you use the kitchen in their apartment to cook if you so choose - there is a grocery 200 meters away. If you want privacy and quiet surroundings, this is a fine place to stay.


First and foremost, Madame Eymard is the most adorable, sweetest hostess I have ever had the pleasure to meet. A first-class chef who deserves a Michelin star for sure. But putting that aside, The location is excellent, the room is tidy, her home is lovely. Opening it to people who want to know Bordeaux is actually a favour! You must go to her place when you visit Bordeaux. She knows everything about markets, sights to see, food to eat (eat her food), etc... One lovely lovely woman, will return!


my friend and i had a very lovely stay! the host was amazing, providing us with whatever we needed (except soap and toothbrush). location is great, a quick tram ride (or you could walk) to the city centre. it's a bit dusty, but there is reconstruction in the house. a supermarket nearby for food if you want to cook, but i recommend you ask the host to prepare a traditional bordeaux meal! she is a fantastic cook! just a very lovely old and traditional house to stay in :)

Amazing family, cooked us authentic Bordeaux food which really enhanced the trip and our experience of Bordeaux


I didn't know the concept of chambre d'hôte before, but it is more than worth trying it. You basically stay at the lovely home of your host. You get your own room with bathroom and can cook at the shared kitchen. The landlady is very charming and offers a great dinner a la bordelaise for little money. It was the BEST food ever that we ate in France! You certainly have tor try it for yourself and a spend a splendid evening!


The host is very nice and welcoming and the location isn't too bad. Our problem with the place was that dishes, a microwave and a place to eat is provided but there really wasn't a place to clean the dishes other than the bathroom sink. Also the bathroom floor as well as the shower had black mold in it! The whole room was very " musty" and damp as it' s located in a really old basement. Would not recommend staying here.


If you want a taste of the local flavor you must stay here. Ask Marie-Claude to cook for you. The price is excellent and you probably will not get a better taste of traditional Bordeaux cuisine anywhere else. The room is spacious, the staff is wonderful, and although the location isn't right in the city center, the tram is less than a 5 minute walk away.


Arrival in a road that reeked of dead animals and bins . Poor area of the city .Room was dark and depressing. Crumbling plaster, old furniture, unnecessary furniture in room- 2 put up beds,stacks of children's toys. Horrible old crockery that no one would like to make a drink with. Cheap pot pourri bags in tiny shower room/ toilet that desperately needed re decorating/ renovating. The owner was keen for us to eat an evening meal but after seeing her kitchen and hygiene we wouldn't consider it.

Very nice place!


Lovely owner took really good care of us. beautiful private room with ensuite! towards the end of a tram line but easy enough to get to. close to the river with plenty of restaurants nearby.


This was great break from the hustle and bustle. We only stayed here for a night at the lady that owns the house was so sweet and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. She also made a huge authentic meal for us for 25 euro, which at first we thought was really pricey, but ended up being worth it!


very nice cozy hotel - its basically just staying in a private home, where you have a big room with a bathroom downstairs.


We had a great time! Take the opportunity to and choose the table d'hote. It is great value, great food and great company. Very authentic Bordelais cuisine.


Very friendly and helpful hosts, you feel more as a family member than a client. Next time we'll definitely try the bordelaise specialities! Thanks again!

I loved my stay in Bordeaux at this very old house that has been in the family for many generations. It is in need of work, but is charming & my room was large. The hostess was lovely and cooked an amazing 3 course meal one night, with 8 other French guests. Hostess English is ok - we managed quite well. It was easy to get to the city centre from here and the trams are fantastic. And yes, her daughter plays violin beautifully. Recommend this place if you want an authentic French experience.

It's a paying guest accommodation (not a hotel or hostel), run by a lovely woman and her family. Nice people, and they speak decent English.


When we were looking for a place to stay for a short break in Bordeaux we wanted somewhere where we could have some privacy and quiet after the exploring the the wonderful city of Bordeaux. Marie is the landlady and she was waiting for us when we arrived. She is an excellent hostess and invited us one night to up to her flat (she and her husband live upstairs) for drinks and aperitif. We reallly enjoyed it and do recommend this place. It is very close tio a couple of trams stops, very convenient


We had some really great days in our lovely room. The family living there was really friendly and we were offered the possibility to use the kitchen (although we had our own fridge, a coffee machine and some dishes) and the terrace. It was also possible to use their computer with internet. It might be good to know that there's a cat living in the house but if you don't leave the window open it can't enter your room. All in all, there's nothing left to be desired and we would stay there again.


The family that run the guest room were fantastic. The matron Maggie was like an aunty, we felt comfortable the wwhole time even when we were hungover and lazy. She might not like me for this but ask the daughter roman to play the violin shes amazing hahahaha. Thanks
