Welcome to our hostel

Annecy Hostel is located 10 minutes’ walk from the old town of Annecy, dubbed the Little Venice of the Alps for its beautiful network of canals winding through its centre. The hostel is on the edge of the forest and overlooks the legendary Lake Annecy.

Accommodation is available in rooms of 4-5 beds with a shower and a sink, there’s free Wi-Fi, a fully equipped kitchen, two outdoor terraces offering stunning views of the surrounding mountains and the opportunity for a barbeque, plus a bar where you can meet for a drink or something to eat with your fellow travellers.

At Hostel Annecy you can enjoy a wide range of sports and activities including skiing, mountain biking, canyoning, swimming and hiking, or simply stroll through the narrow streets of the old town and take in the lake and the fresh air of the surrounding mountains.

Bonjour, je n'ai pas dormi de la nuit à cause de la soufflerie de la salle de bain qui est très bruyante. Je ne sais pas si vous pouvez faire quelque chose. D'autre part, les robinets n'étaient pas facile d'utilisation. L'eau ne coule pas assez longtemps et en se brossant les dents par exemple, il y à peine le temps pour approcher sa bouche de l'eau et se rincer la bouche.

I wish I had been advised about the roadworks that prevented me from walking to town on the pavement by the roadside or by the shortcuts higher up. Since they were holes in the road, pedestrians had to follow a steep and somewhat unable path in the rain! warning should have been given when the booking was made since this is going to last for months. it seems that since most visitors have cars, the inconvenience was not thought to be 'inconvenient' enough to warn hostellers.
