Welcome to our hostel

You are at the heart of Lille – the capital of the Flanders region – in a stony yet green environment. The futuristic architecture of the Youth Hostel, shaped like a heptahedron, represents Lille's modernity, whilst the view of the building’s communal forum space from the hostel’s terrace creates an immersive experience for travellers of all ages. You are just a few minutes from the Palais des Beaux-Arts art gallery, picturesque Rihour Square, and the old town with its pedestrian streets and typical houses.

This youth hostel can accommodate up to 200 travellers, with excellent quality shared facilities for maximum comfort: the 24/7 reception, restaurant, auditorium, bar, information and exhibit area are all located on the ground floor in a communal space bathed in sunlight. The hostel also boasts a terrace, laundry facilities and WiFi, kitchen, bike shed and garden. A model of modernity and eco-responsibility, the Youth Hostel complies with the High Environmental Quality standard and Low-Energy Building status – optimising energy consumption and managing rainwater and grey water. The ethos of this eco-citizen youth hostel is all about respecting future generations.

Close to Lille - Stephane Hessel, the hostel is close to the city’s railway stations (Lille Europe and Lille Flandres) and the underground (300m away). With the airport shuttle and motorway access close-at-hand, Lille EuraLille is easily accessible however you may be travelling France.
