Ich war lediglich auf der Durchreise. Die Bar könnte länger geöffnet sein und es könnte etwas sauberer sein. Ansonsten ist die Lage sehr zentral, der Parkplatz zwar nicht abgesperrt, aber doch etwas versteckt hinter dem Haus.

Excellent value for money. The one thing as a non-French guest (not just here but at many locations in France) would be: could there be a little extra at breakfast? Even if just a bit of cheese or pate, instead of just the butter and jam...

:-) We would choose this Auberge again, but... :-( Breakfast should have fruits... at least apples.

All the staff and especially the manager were very helpful. We were cycling the GTJ and we were grateful for a lot of useful advice. It was a little difficult to book on-line but the manager quickly sorted this out for us. I have already recommended this hostel to friends considering the GTJ
