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.
What travellers think
Lovely hostel in a great location. Kitchen was a bit small & got crowded at times but still manageable. Also, nowhere to store items that don't go in the fridge (eg, rice) but other than that, everything was fine. Close enough to Cancale to walk & easy to get bus to St Malo. A day trip to Mont St Michel, however, requires a lot of careful planning if you want to get back to the hostel on the same day! If you get stuck at Dol de Bretagne, go & have a look as it is quite a cute town.

Reasonably placed for Mont St Michel, whether by own transport or public transport. Close to St Malo, Dinard, Dinan etc...

Walk all the GR34 between Cancale and St-Malo, it's fantastic, in particular La Pointe du Grouin !
