    Magical stay in a magical place. Patrick is a wonderful host, made sure to introduce me to all the current guests during the check in tour, and gave great advice concerning the local climbing areas! The building itself and location is amazing, Super clean and charming, modern amenities, communal spaces, and La Chapelle-la-Riene was very pretty with access to any resource one could need while travelling (Bi1 Supermarket, At the heart of the Mie Bakery, gas station, various pizza shops) Thanks!!

    An amazing place. A really great welcomig atmosphere - one of the best of hostels I've stayed in. Patrick was so hospitable and left me a special note when he wasn't around for my check in! The dorm beds had a cool pocket organiser which was great for storage on a top bunk. A great vibe for climbers.

    I arrived solo with just a few days to climb and I had an amazing time in Font, thanks to this hostel! It was really easy to meet other climbers and it was great to have crash pads available for hire and topos/guides to look through. Patrick is really friendly, resourceful and great to chat with. Kitchen is very well-equipped and the beds are comfortable. Great vibes all around. Thanks for an amazing trip!

    It was a great stay in FontainBlHostel! Patrick is always there with a smile and willing to help! For a hostel in an almost perfect climbing location you will find all you need there, crashpads, people to climb with, and a great atmosphere. There are also topos for sale there in case you want to buy those... and if not, there are some available for checking.. There is also a camping in the hostel which makes it super cool as well. Great hostel, great people around.. Happy times!
