It's a very nice place, renewed and pretty clean. The friendly staff speaks good English and it's ready to help you anytime. The breakfast is basic but tasty. The hostel is environmental friendly and for few additional euros, you eat a very good meal. I would come back, for sure.

I attended with my school, we had no idea what the hostel was like. It was fine when we arrived but we had a few issues. The food wasn't prepared right, it was disgusting. We also was harassed by other lodgers, reception didn't care. Wifi wasn't accessible in rooms and I struggled to get even the most basic task of... More

I've travelled Europe an stayed in over a hundred Hostels, this one was a no-repeat. There was no wifi in the rooms and the manager told us to deal with it, even when the web page says there was. They make you buy a "membership card" that costs 11E additional to whatever you are paying for the room, its 40... More

I originally intended to stay at this hostel for a couple of days, but that soon turned into 6 nights. This is definitely one of the nicest hostels I have ever stayed in! And believe me, I have stayed in a LOT. First of all, it is super clean and very comfortable. Wifi is also available. Plus, the location is... More

Stayed here for two nights - the girl on reception was always helpful, the breakfast was fine, well cleaned and generally felt safe. The location is about 20 minutes walk to the main town. The food in the evening was awful though and after speaking to some other travellers, this seemed to be the general feeling.

A great place to stay, cheap and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Most rooms now refurbished to a high standard. A good location, close to La Rochelle and Les Minemes. Get the water bus to and fro to save the feet!

Great location between town (20mins walk along sea wall) and beach (10mins through marina) - bus and rivertaxi if you don't want to walk. We had a very clean and bright room with modern ensuite/shower room. Great dinner at 5euro, plus good breakfast with real cheese, fruit, yoghurts etc. Plenty to do in La Rochelle, and Ile de Re is...

Good hostel, newly refurbished, we had our own room with bathroom. The food is excelent (dinner) and the staff is friendly. Everything was new in the room and we felt relaxed. It is a bit far away from the town centre, but the walk to get there has a lovely view of the port. Bring your camara.
