    Brilliant atmosphere, lots of fellow happy hikers keen to get out and explore. Lovely staff who even did my washing for me on the day I left early to hike- amazing! Highly recommend this place to all.

    The staff here were lovely and helpful from beginning to end, and the hostel was kept clean throughout my stay. All the travellers I encountered were friendly, and I made one especially good friend in my dorm. My only criticism would be that the kitchen is a bit smaller than it looks in the photo, but it's still big enough for multiple groups to be using at once so it isn't an issue. I was worried about the beds initially but they ended up being quite comfy so not an issue. 100% would stay again

    A great place with knowledgeable, English-speaking staff and a well equipped kitchen. Fantastic atmosphere in the hostel, with many English-speaking guests, however the outdoor bar is dominated by locals (not a bad thing, but it is easier to make friends inside). My only complaint would be that there are restricted hours for using the stove/oven (8am to 9:30pm). Great location near supermarket and bakery and not too far from old town, lake or the train station, definitely would stay here again.

    Great value for money, highly recommended. The location is great, within a short walk to the old town and the lake. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I’ll certainly stay here again if I’m in the area.

    I had a great stay at Annecy Hostel. The rooms were clean and beds were very comfortable. The bar in the hostel is great, but there are a lot of locals who come to the bar as well as just hostel guests, making it sometimes hard to meet other hostel guests. But overall, the vibe at the hostel was social and I met lots of friendly travellers. There is a bit of a walk into town (10- 15 minutes) but its lovely. I would recommend staying here because of the great vaue for money!

    Nice hostel, good atmosphere. Not so comfortable room though. Annecy is *very* hot during summer, and the lack of air conditioning or fans made it hard to sleep.

    Can only speak for myself, but I never got one smile from the staff, even when I arrived to check in, the lady at the front didn’t seem too impressed with my presence. Walking in and out they didn’t even acknowledge you. There’s a really cool outdoor section that has a bar and small restaurant. Was told being a guest you get discounts on both food and drinks but it’s only drinks, the restaurant doesn’t offer discounts for guests. It’s a public bar so you don’t really meet other travellers
