Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

In the heart of the green district of Cahors, city of all the secret gardens, on the banks of the Lot, the bay windows of the youth hostel overlook the Valentré bridge. An exceptional view! It is classified as a Historic Monument and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site within the framework of the Ways of Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle. The youth hostel, by its architecture - a simple and mineral volume - lets light in everywhere: it makes the link between the historical heritage of Cahors and the Lot, stone, and the contemporary and green district where it is located. All in transparency, it shelters a secret garden in the heart of the building, a "guinguette". The Hi Cahors youth hostel is located a few minutes from the train station in the city center.

Famous for its Cahors Vineyard, the Lot Valley is also famous for its many "Most Beautiful Villages" in France, including: Saint-Cirq Lapopie. Visits to Figeac, Gourdon, Rocamadour and the abyss of Padirac, Quercy Blanc with Montcuq, or even less than 2 hours drive from Sarlat in the Périgord Noir in Dordogne are also unmissable from Cahors.

Ultra bien située, à faire pâlir d'envie un hôtel *** ! Le petit déjeuner sur la terrasse en face du pont médiéval, emblème de la ville est très agréable.Toute neuve, la salle de bain intégrée à la chambre est impeccable.

The reception area is uninviting, with bare walls and hardly anywhere to sit. One gets the impression that the building is vacant or that a company has just moved out. The rooms also have bare cement walls. But from the top floor there are wonderful views of the C14th Pont Valentre (bridge) and the hostel is handy for the railway station.

muddled management. Lack of English speakiing staff, and a lift permanently out of order when one is no longer young and handling heavy baggage, all served to disappoint.

Many essential features were nonfunctional when I stayed in late August, and the manager seemed to be absent. The staff had no power to fix them. Elevator, guest washing machine, call button at front desk, window shade in my room. The shade issue enabled great views of me from roof deck, For any privacy I needed to be in the bathroom. Also the Accueil Velo label needs some scrutiny. The bike storage area required a staff person to dispense the key, but their desk hours are incredibly short. There is no camera trained on the underground parking cage and it has clearly been broken into recently. I could see no pump or tools. The building itself is gorgeous and the staff are very kind. However unusual number of problems marred my experience there.
