Most of the accommodation is in tents which the owner can provide and put up ready for tor arrival (big teepees), or you can use your own. Really good facilities, all very clean. Lots of room to cook and eat, including a big outdoor courtyard. 20 mins from most crags in Font with the Elephant within walking distance. The owner Patrick speaks fluent French, English and German. He is really nice and helpful and was able to give advice and directions for climbing. We would highly recommend this hostel and we would use it again. Bring a splitter though as there aren’t that many plugs available but lots of people charging phones in the evenings! Facilities: Clean toilets and showers Free WiFi Fridges and cooking facilities (hobs only) Plenty of cutlery, chopping boards and pots and pans etc Washing up liquid, soap and sponges provided Cooking oils, herbs etc provided Supermarket 1km away (large and cheap) Didn’t stay in the rooms, we were in tents on the grass at the rear Board games, climbing guides etc all available for use in the common area Several restaurants on the doorstep

Well, where do I start? We arrived at fontaineblhostel on Sunday, and we’re immediately greeted by Patrick, an absolute legend, the best host any of us have met, what a kind inviting man who will go out of his way to ensure a comfortable fun stay, so a huge shout out and thankyou to our main man Pat! The hostel itself was super clean, well equipped and simply a pleasure to stay at, plus the cherry trees in the campsite area were a wonderful tasty addition, the hostel is located within 15 mins drive of some of the most incredible bouldering spots, and honestly just go! Stay with Patrick in his fantastic hostel and you won’t regret it! Merci Patrick, cest super!

Friendly, welcoming, clean, great showers, everything we could have wanted and more. We found this campsite and hostel by chance when we were turned away from another campsite because we hadn't booked and it was Easter. Patrick was extremely welcoming and found space for us even though both the hostel and campsite were busy. It was a treat being able to camp and use the splendid hostel facilities. You can also hire bouldering mats and bikes and there is lots of information about the bouldering and other things to do in the area. The village is lovely too with a traditional boulangerie near the hostel and a supermarket a short drive away. If you don't want to self-cater there are restaurants within walking distance. I would definitely recommend this place.

The hostel host is the first person you will meet and the last person you will remember. The presence of the owner on a daily basis really makes you feel welcome, he regularly checks on his guests well being and does an amazing job of keeping the hostel tidy etc. This was my first time at this particular hostel and I will look no further when booking in the future. Thanks Patrick!
