I loved the location and atmosphere here! The owners were very friendly and I will definitely go back to this place when I'm visiting the south of France again!


The cabin I stayed in was clean and well-kept, and the staff was friendly and willing to offer the occasional lift into town. The one downside was that it was far away from the main village, which they tell you about but didn't really sink in. Also, be warned--this place only accepts cash (or PayPal with a 5% charge). Make sure to bring enough cash to cover your stay, because there are no cashpoints in Preixan that I could tell.


This is one of my favorite hostels I've stayed in so far. It's a bit outside of Carcassonne, so you are really in he countryside with a ton of sunflower fields and vignards. It is very easy to get to the castle, but my favorite day was taking one of the bikes and cycling around the small towns in the area. It is incredibly beautiful. The hostel itself has a campground feel, with cabins and picnic tables, and a slackline. But there's also a house area with tables and couches and a huge kitchen.


Lovely place here in Preixan. Very friendly/helpful staff. Clean, and with lots of space to walk, cycle and hang out. Recommended.


this is a fabulous hostel. Peter and Tracy are the sweetest people, offering to pick people up from the train station. As well as a stunning place with a kitchen that overlooks this beautiful landscape. 10/10 would come here again


The staff there were very helpful and friendly!

Very nice staff, beautiful location, stunning garden and clean home - wish I could have stayed longer. It's self-hosted and the kitchen very well equipped, so it's a good idea to bring some food to cook or to visit the little store just down the street if you're interested in preparing some meals for yourself. Great stay overall!
