It is a lovely and peacefull hostel with the most wonderfull and helpfull owners. Tracy and Peter can give you good tips for hiking, cycling and restaurants. If you don't want to go to a restaurant, the kitchen is well provided to let you cook your own stuff. Enjoyed my stay there very much!!

First a disclaimer, I arrived at midnight and left at 5:30am so I didn't really see a lot. I needed a bed in an emergency due to a train cancellation. What I found was a clean, comfortable bed in a wooden cabin set in a nice garden. It's really a hostel/backpacker's rest, so the ablution block is separate. There is... More

this wasn't the first time we have stayed here, having stayed with Jan and Georges the dog, many years ago... delighted to see the current proprietors have taken what was so special about Sidsmums and built upon it, and developed it... our only regret is that we didn't stay for a little longer; our primary visit for our stay was...

This place instantly felt like home! Very welcoming, warm and tranquil. One of the cleanest dorm rooms and shared bathrooms/kitchens I've experienced. The surrounding area is beautiful and definitely needs to be explored. It's perfect for people who enjoy going into the city but do not necessary like to stay in an amongst all the tourists as in high season... More

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.
