THE SKINNY: if you are visiting Carcassonne as a backpacker and are looking for a great place to stay, look no further! Stay at Sidmums. The hostel is great, but the owners are the best! THE THICK: I visited Carcasonne and stayed at Sidmums mid-November of 2015. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay; so much so that I contemplated staying another... More

Sidsmums was a perfect place to base out of an explore the Languedoc area. We stayed two nights in September and were sorry to leave so soon. Tracy and Peter are the most helpful hosts - and so easygoing. We corresponded over email and there was no concern over deposits or arrival times, Our cabin was clean and cozy, the... More

Very peaceful and relaxing hostel in the middle of the vineyards of the Languedoc. The two hosts, Peter and Tracy, are probably the most welcoming people you will ever meet. During the week they let us use their mountainbikes (with which we made some awesome rides through the area) for free. Next to that, there is a very cosy, romantic... More

I stayed for four days and was able to use the bikes, the table tennis and pet the animals without any extra fees being paid. Not only that, but this hostel is peaceful, tranquil and situated in a sleepy French village with excellent transport links to and from the nearby medieval city of Carcassonne. Would visit again!

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.
