Lovely inclusive breakfast.Very well equipped self catering kitchen,private fridge lockers available €1 day.Cleaners at work every morning.Nice mix of older & single guests.Parking for my motorbike.Check out the sunrises & sunsets, especially when the tide comes in in the evening & the beach transforms with waves spectacularly crashing up onto the promenade. St Malo was lovely. A+++

    The kitchen and the washing / drying machines are closed at 10 o'clock. It is too early. The breakfast is modest. There is enough free parking outside. In our room the toilets and the shower were in separate rooms. It is very convenient. In total - very good. Good way to reduce accommodation expenses.

    Suggestion : PLEASE make it clear on the webpage that checkin is NOT possible before 4pm and c/o is strictly at 10 am Perfect for a solo traveler. I stayed there from 31-Aug-2018 to 2-Sep. Location and cleanliness are super cool. After a busy day walking in the old town or around the beaches - and I bet a solo traveler without a car does a lot of walking - one can expect a very comforting sleep in a nice location with clean air. The two nights that I slept there, I had really comfortable sleep.

    Not a lot of security options. However the location well made up for it. Less than a 3 minute walk from the beach and less than a 40 minute walk to the old town of St. Malo.

    Hi stayed here on my own for two days in november.This hostel is OK, it does the job, It's located in a youth residence in Saint Malo, meaning you'll be seeing lots of 16-24 year olds around. Location wise, it's a bit far from Saint Malo's historical town (45 min walk). You can get the bus and it's quick to get there, but buses didn't run at night and I could not even find taxis. Rooms are very small & very clean. Breakfast is included but it's really bad.

    The hostel is 200 m from the beach but 35' walk from main city centre of Saint Malo. It's the latest check in I've come across in years, at 4 pm. You have to pay for using wifi from your room. The free wifi is available only in common spaces. They were very nice about keeping my bags till then and even helped me keep my laptop in a more secure room. Positives: The hostel is very clean, lots of older people around Negatives: You need to pay for wifi in room (!), no place to lock your stuff
