Wonderful little hotel. The staff was very friendly an accommodating. A very peaceful place to stay. Wifi in the rooms did not always work properly, but wifi at the café was fast and reliable and I believe the issue in my room may have been temporary or related to the specific location in the building.

First of all it's not a hostel, it's a hotel. It's a solid 30-45 minute trek to the actual city (it's NOT in Bordeaux, it's located next to the airport), there isn't much to do there or around it, their pool was out of commission (HUGE BUMMER. it was so hot out and it's apparently one of their biggest selling points. FELL. FLAT.) I'll say that their restaurant was totally delicious, the AC was adjustable manually which is awesome & the privacy is great. Tiny rooms, super far. Fine for a layover.


The hostel was much further from anything than it says on it's website. I had to take a cab because the busses weren't running and it cost 50€! And the staff were not very helpful. I had to leave early the next morning and they have me the wrong directions to the bus stop. Terrible experience.
