Arles hostel is just 1km from the centre of this town, much painted by Vincent van Gogh. Arles is famous for the Roman remains that dot the city, including thermal baths and an impressive ancient arena. There are also a number of intriguing galleries and exciting theatres to visit.
There are bicycles to hire, a large dining room, a bar and a café. There is also a terrace, TV and a cybersalon.
There is capacity for 110 guests in the hostel in shared dormitories. Nearby, there is a public car park and coach park.
What travellers think
I was booked for 5 nights. The first two nights were just fine... quiet room with 4 or so of the 8 beds occupied. Then two very loud, very sloppy, very unpleasant women came in on the third night. They spread water from the showers throughout the entire bathroom, snored loudly all night, had stuff all over the room. I had one sleepless night and left before I had to suffer through nights 4 and 5 and booked into a hotel.

Hostel is in dire need of maintenance.. To have a shower, I ran the water for more than five minutes before it came out warm. There is no hand basin in the upstairs toilets. and moce the to something smaller andmore economiical to run? No washing facilities. Clean sheets were available, but what about pillow cases? There was no instruction to keep packs of beds. Insufficient horizontal surfaces for guests to keep their gear, except on the foor, ie you only have half a policy on preventing bed bugs.
