Patrick provides an authentic and welcoming environment. I camped and was given blankets to keep me warm! His genuine nature appears to have attracted a similar kind and I wish I could have stayed longer. Merci and danke :)

Great place for the solo traveler. La Chappelle is a 45 minute walk to Elephant boulders, but you will want a car to explore the rest of Font bouldering. Patrick is an excellent host. There is a large supermarket about 1 km away. The hostel has a good kitchen and plenty of space in the fridges. I recommend the hostel and would stay there again

The hostel is a very friendly place and with an amazing host. Patrick runs a tight ship in a very caring and compassionate way. Not afraid to tell you when you're breaking rules and is very grateful when you clean up messes left by others. The facility was very clean and nice to stay in. The kitchen had a lot of space to organize meal prep and to cook without feeling crowded. The dorm rooms were comfy with ample space for personal stuff and the showers where great after a day of climbing.
