The hostel is 10min walk to the Biarritz train station or busA1 from Bayonne train station (40 min). The hostel lobby, bar area and garden is large. Rooms are clean with ensuite shower and toilet. The manager helped me to book a train ticket. The bar was closed (end of Jan 2015), you can get beer if you ask the receptionist. I left the hostel before 7 am and the manager helped me to get breakfast. Clean kitchen and shops and pizza place are 10 min walk away. Check-in time is 6 pm to 9 pm.
