Die Jugendherberge hatte eine super Lage und das Personal war freundlich. Der einzige negativ Punkt war, dass es nur heisse Duschen gab. Man konnte die Wassertemperatur nicht einstellen, so wurde das Wasser während dem Duschen nach kurzer Zeit heiss.

Very friendly staff, good breakfast. Sanitary and kitchen clean, some more towels would be handy. One minor point of criticism: Triage of trash incomplete: no container for paper (or have I missed it?). All in all, a very good hostel for recovering from heat and stress (especially the lovely garden)

Attraction tip

Guided tour of the Basilica in English, and self guided wander through the Bastide and along the ramparts. Tourist Office beside Porte Narbonne very helpful and friendly. Watch the sunset from the walls and the flying acrobatics of the swifts!
