My friend and I stayed here for 5 nights in a two bedroom private with a bathroom. We had an amazing time! The room was great! The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the location was perfect. Definitely worth staying here. EXCELLENT value for money.

The rooms are too congested for 8 bed dorms. There's hardly place for people to keep luggage and walk through the aisle. TBH, these rooms should not be having more than 4 beds. The kitchen is small, and seems to be always occupied by the hostel staff itself. The internet is terrible, in that it's hardly usable in rooms. More than anything, we weren't impressed when we got to know that out room-mates were actually hostel staff !! BTW, the location is good and breakfast is provided which is OK.


The doors of the rooms are open, and men and women share the same bathroom with no locks on the door, and doors are glass which is reflected in the mirror-------which means naked people are seen in the mirror.


don't expect 5 star treatment for dimes. It's a good hostel, and it has its quirks. I love the atmosphere, but don't expect greatly treated rooms. It's just that: a southern French hostel. All in all very good, especially for the money.
