Using my mams account to write this review. I have recently returned from a holiday to France with school. I was quite impressed with the quirky, cool comic and movie themed design of the corridors, perfect for children whatever age! The rooms were simple but nice although they were not the cleanest. I got a big shock when I saw... More

Not sure what luxuries the last reviewer had during their last stay in the clink, but this ain't no prison. Yes, the rooms are basic, and no, towels are not provided, but this is a youth hostel, not a hotel. As a base for exploring the north of France and Belgium, it's ideal; what I never expected last year when... More

We stayed at this hostel on our annual visit to France (party size 38 yr 6 students inc staff) and found the facilities, rooms, dining area, staff and location to be EXCELLENT! The warm welcome by "all" the staff and their continual helpfulness was a credit to the Ethic Etapes organisation. The rooms are sparse of luxury but very clean... More

This is a very pleasant youth hostel - open to all ages. I had a room with two single beds. Basic, but clean bright and comfortable. Shared bathroom with room next door, and unusual locking device, but since there was no one next door, there was no problems. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The price was very cheap....

The place is very basic, even 'spartan'. The interior - hallways, rooms - looked more like a prison than a hotel, really. Extremely simple room, and not clean. No towels, not even soap in the bathroom. Very basic breakfast, only cereals and bread with jam, that's all. Wifi did not work. I don't think I'd recommend this place to anybody.

Each room had two single beds(bed covers where dirty) and one room had a chair. Thats it!!!There was no... More

Staff is very friendly and the place is acceptably clean but it is listed on most websites as a hotel while it looks and feels much more as a hostel. Rooms are big but really spartan, ensuite toilets with shower are really really small. The price is really inexpensive but there are no toiletries and just one towel per person.... More

Stayed with a school party of 10 and 11-year olds at the start of June, and we were all really impressed with the way we were treated by the staff - so friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable, rooms clean and the food was fantastic - roast chicken, lasagne, spaghetti bolognese; all stuff geared towards the kids, which was... More

Tell people you are staying in a hostel and they look at you funny...but who cares when you get a great plot explore place like this! We stayed her for 3 nights in two rooms connected by a bathroom. The rooms share the bathroom so if booked as single rooms, you share with next door..but as we were a family... More

It was the second time at this hostel for me and ill be back. High ethic etap network standards. Breakfast included. Excellent wifi. Quiet sleep and a lot of space, included a library with books. Unfortunately calais is not the nicest city - despite a museum in a world war ii bunker.
