What a delight, this place. Tucked away in the tiny village of Preixan, close to the beautiful Aude river, I came intending to stay two days and stayed four - and could have moved in. The garden is beautiful, the facilities clean and high quality (the view from the kitchen is quite unforgettable!). The night sky is off the scale.... More

There is free coffee and tea a box with emergency food supplies. Also there is a slickline, darts and board games. Tracy and Peter, the owners of... More

I travel a lot. Away on business to very smart places, on my own to shoestring locations - you name it, I like to do it. Very few places exceed my expectation enough to propel me into writing a review. This hostel - if it's even fair to categorise as that? - justifies an honest and prompt review. The cleanliness,...

Perfect for relaxing, calm area, beautiful landscape and nature, very nice owners, appropriate for all kinds of travellers (single backpackers to families). No "party hostel", located in a small village.

Excellent standard of accommodation at a very reasonable price. Tracy and Peter are very welcoming and friendly. They helped us to plan our activities and also gave us a lift to and from the station. There is also a bus out of the village which gives links to anywhere you would care to visit . We had privacy but were... More

The owners Tracy and Peter were awesome kind and helpful- and even cooked me dinner one night! Carcasonne is a short bus ride away, and... More

We went for a week to visit Carcassonne and the surrounding area. If you are looking for a nice peaceful place, this is a perfect hostel. I would definetly come back for another week, eventhough I've seen enough of Carcassonne itself and the hills around it. That is because of the owners, Peter and Tracy. They are both so caring...

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

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
