    This hostel was a good find in Bordeaux and had two specific things that made it easy for me to give it a high mark: location and staff. The people working at Whoo were fabulous: helpful, multi-lingual, and good-spirited. The location is just steps away from a large “Halle” filled with a wide variety of food and drinks you could enjoy outside under shady covers. The team into the city (a15 min ride) was nearby, as was the little water taxi beside La Cite de Vin, the wine museum.

    One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in! They have a large area to work with speedy Wi-Fi, a gym, a bar, nice bathrooms, and curtains on the bed! (The best thing in a hostel) My only complaint is that the beds are not made when you get there. I arrived at 3am and tried to be really quiet in my room to not wake anyone but then I had to put all the sheets on my bed and definitely woke everyone up. Putting a fitted sheet on in a top bunk is almost impossible. Overall great experience though!

    Staff was so friendly and helpful, felt so welcomed straight away. There are also a lot of different kinds of bars and clubs close by which make every evening fun if you like to go out!

    A bit far away from city center. Cool bar and great atmosphere. Clean dorms.

    The staff makes it a great place. They are very helpfull and attentive, and they get my highest recommendations :-) Facilities are great and the beds with a curtain is a big plus. The only negative for me was the constant loud music in the lounge area. It’s too much, and felt like a 24/7 disco - I couldn’t really use the area because of this. But apart from this, its a good place with great facilities and a great staff.

    It was easy to reach the city center and it was an interesting area to explore. Although it would be nice to have the bar open until 23 to eat or drink something in case of late check ins. The stay was quite ok and it's really close to the river so it allows you to go for running in a really suggestive atmosphere

    Loved my stay in bordeaux, however the hostel wasn't the easiest to meet people, if the people in your room weren't very sociable. There were communal areas, that seem perfect to hang out with, but looked like it was used primarily by pre-existing friendship groups. However, the rest of my stay was excellent, and the staff were friendly!

    There were no curtains on the bed although mentioned in the description other than that the rooms are well equiped. Not close to the center but easy acces through tram (10-20 minutes) and Bacalan is quite a nice place to stay. No activities planned to discover the city in itself during the week, only on the weekend for going out. Sadly no common space exclusively reserved for the people staying at the hostel, the only common space is the bar of the hostel so you can’t bring your own drinks.

    This hostel is in a great location, modern, friendly staff, and had a great hang out area. The things that let it down was the cleanliness of the ensuite - mould in the shower, things left behind by other travellers and no toilet paper on my first night; and the lack of air con - Bordeaux was extremely hot and I thought when booking this hostel there was air con, unfortunately it was only the lobby and the rooms had a “cooling system”, I woke up drenched in sweat all 3 nights of my stay.

    Very nice staff working there with a very good connection to the bars and tram to down town (15 min). Air condition even on normal days is definitely not set up well. We were in a dorm for 4 people but you could not sleep with closed window.
