My wife and I stayed at the Centre Patrick Varangot last weekend. What we liked:
(a) the (private) room given to us was spotlessly clean, and was much more spacious than, say, a room at an Ibis.
(b) we paid 41 Euros a night for the room. That's a steal !
(c) the staff were very friendly and all of them (at the reception) spoke fluent English.
(d) the beach is a few minutes away from the hostel.
(e) The intramuros (walled city) is about 20 minutes away on foot.
(f) There is a Carrefour, a tabac and a great bakery within 5 minutes walking distance
(g) There is a lot of open space inside the centre, unlike some of the "compact" and box like hotels nearby
On the flip side,
(a) the official breakfast time ends at 9:15 am, but sometimes, the bread/coffee runs out by that time (specially if they had a large group check in the eve before)
(b) some of the rooms , like ours, overlook a (moderately) busy street, so if you are light sleeper, you may be woken up by the noise of the traffic before you intend to.
Overall, I would say I had a very pleasant stay. Would not mind staying here again if I ever visit St Malo again.
