Set close to the centre of this traditional oyster harbour, the Mont St Michel hostel is located in a natural protected area, on a beautiful beach. This unique setting is a good base for exploring the Mont Saint Michel, St Malo, Dinan, the emerald coast, the Chausey Islands and the Anglo-Normand Islands.

Mont St Michel hostel is open 24 hours, accommodation is in 1-8 bedded rooms and facilities include a kitchen, common room, games room, and playground. The hostel provides free Internet access and free breakfast. This Cancale hostel has package stays to practice sport activities such as sea kayaking and sailing.

Cancale lies along the coast to the east of Saint-Malo. It is a picturesque fishing village popular with visitors, many of whom are drawn by its reputation as the ‘oyster capital’ of Brittany. Though a small town, it is well served by a large number of restaurants and amenities.

Reviews

Wonderful location along GR34, quiet in the evenings and mornings, reasonable distance from public transport (~30 mins walk to bus stop Line 5 during low season, but in summer Line 8 stop just a stone's throw from hostel). Hostel extremely clean, bed comfortable (if you like a firm mattress). I would prefer hand wash basin in/next to toilet cubicles, as now you have to go back to room to wash your hands. Communal kitchen OK in late May, but might get a bit cramped during the summer.
