The hostel is clean and well maintained. The beds are nice and showers are good. The girl at reception seemed annoyed at us for disturbing whatever she was doing on her phone. When we asked questions we received limited answers that were not helpful. As well, the reception is not open for a significant portion of the day. Although this was on the hosteling international website, you would have to search for the information and it was not in the confirmation email. Breakfast was just ok.

As with the last few French hostels we have stayed in the breakfast is a disappointment. Once breakfast has been set up then it seems that no one checks to see whether anything needs to be replenished.
