Hostel La Rochelle is close to the local bus route that links travellers with the main railway station and the city centre. While you’re here why not hire one of La Rochelle’s ‘yellow bikes’ – the first 2 hours are free!

It is nice hostel, good location, clean and modern place. But making concert/DJ set in the hostel where people come to sleep is not a good idea.
