We went here one night - only one night. If we had more time we could have stayed weeks. The owner is a very friendly guy. At the arrival we talked to each other and had a good time. The rooms are very clean and the beds comfortable. It's a quite cheap alternative to the hotels in Carcassonne.

Come for the very nice and helpful owners. All was simple but very comfortable. Good talk with the owners. When we left they called us tell us we forgot ou money pocket under the pillow (on our Israeli phone)! All was just so agreeable.

I really enjoyed my stay. The owners were great and the hostel was peaceful yet fun. The owners were kind enough to pick us up from the train station too! If you are looking for a great hostel on the French countryside i would thoroughhly recommend this place.

I cooked my own dinner from the kitchen with a view of the valley and wineyards. The hostel is a really chillout place to hang with people and if someone is whistling you can bet it's Peter strolling around. I had a great time winding down after a stressful week. Peter and Tracy are two honest and very helpful hosts,... More

Hi Markus, thanks for a lovely review - glad you enjoyed your stay. If you can drop us an email with which bed you were in I can check out the mattress. Pretty sure it is less than 12 months old but sometimes a spring can go out of line and make it uncomfortable. I will check anyway but its... More

Lovely set up and friendly staff! Only difficulty came in catching the public transport, so just make sure you're clear on where to go ext. and you will be fine! Sorry I didn't stay longer in the area and explore.

Had a great stay! Paid the 5 euros to get a ride from the Carcassonne station but they arranged it so they picked up another guest at the same time and I only had to pay half. Super friendly people. Great kitchen! Good wifi. Lovely garden. Couldn't imagine a better place to stay.

Myself and my girlfriend had a wonderful time at Sidsmums, Carcassonne was crazy busy with tourists so we spent 3 days relaxing and cycling around the beautiful countryside. The facilities are excellent and we met some really great people there, it's not your typical youth hostel but I loved the mixture of young travellers and families which created a very... More

Former winehouse in the wine region and surrounded by a patchwork of vineyards, SidsMums makes for a convivial atmosphere in which to meet a variety of different people passing through. Its in a pleasant rural location, good for nipping into Carcassonne, exploring the local area, or resuming onward journeys. Full of local knowledge, easy-going English-speaking hosts were super-friendly which made... More

Peter and Tracy were incredible hosts and extremely hospitable. Sidsmums is situated in a beautiful and unspoilt area and is brilliant if you want to experience a more traditionally French place. Places like this are hard to come by now a days and the situation is made even better by the fact that it is so close to Carcassonne .... More

Tracy and Peter have created a welcoming and comfortable place to stay. We stayed in the gite which was clean and comfortable. The communal areas are spotlessly clean and very well equipped. We travelled as a family including a child and a senior and everyone agreed it was by far the best place we stayed on our trip. Both Tracy... More
