    Great location with friendly and helpful staff. The beds were comfortable. The facilities were clean. You’re right in the heart of Bordeaux and close to the tram that can take you directly to the train station. I would recommend for a solo or group of travelers looking for a place to rest their head and explore the wine country.

    I stayed in 4 hostels in France during my holiday and this one was by far the best! The pod style beds made the best night sleep and the mattress was firm and comfortable. I stayed in a mixed 10 bed dorm. The reception area has incredibly nice decorations and the staff was very nice. The breakfast was delicious as well. All the facilities were clean. There is also a hair dryer.

    Staff is excellent! Hanes at reception was excellent and helped out with everything we needed. This is the only place that I would say if I was visiting Bordeaux again.

    Lovely team helped me setup my weekend with a map pointing out best places to eat, see and more. First hostel I’ve ever had that happen and was amazing. Breakfast was cheap with a hot drink, fruit juice and pastry/bread. Super super super clean and one of the best hostels I’ve stayed at so thank you!

    Clean hostel with a great location, but lacks a kitchen. Atmosphere is nice, but it's not ideal for meeting other travelers

    The location of this hostel is unbeaten, you are in the middle of the Bordeaux city center. Very convenient location! Bed is comfy with a curtain which give a privacy to you in the dorms. Cool onsite bars which open till late. Be aware that there is no kitchen in the hostel but plenty of food options around the hostel. Recommend it if you are in Bordeaux and looking for a centrally located hostel.

    Beds and showers are next level comfy! Black out pull down blinds on bed - can sleep forever! Atmosphere was minimal during our stay so kind of harder to meet people. Staff was kind but not overly helpful. Everything was clean:)

    No good place for your luggage, the under bed lockers are tiny. There’s usually only 1 person at the front desk, so check in takes forever and you can’t really ask for anything because they’re busy. The sleeping pods are quite warm, which I’m sure is perfect in winter but not in summer.
