The hostel is located in the old town of Lille approximately 15-20 minutes walk from the main train stations. There are also regular bus services into the centre.
The hostel is quite new and everything is in good condition. As befits a hostel, the accommodation is spartan but it has all you need i.e. a bed, bathroom & shower. A nice touch was the easily accessible electrical sockets built into the bunk beds. We stayed 2 different nights in two different rooms and bizarrely one bedside lamp by the double bed in each room was not plugged in because the cable was too short.
One negative point was the amount of dust under the double bed. The hostel is cheap relative to other places in Lille but cleanliness is the one thing I feel should be a priority in any accommodation regardless of the cost of the room.
There is a busy bar on the ground floor so there was some noise from the patrons between 1200 and 0100 however as the family rooms were on the top floor, it wasn't too bad.
Overall, a decent place to stay and I would come back again.
