Auberge écolo. Située un peu loin de tout mais accessible facilement par voiture ou bus pas très cher. Les salles communes sont grandes et confortable, notamment la petite au rez de chaussée, vraiment cosy. Les alentours sont vraiment beaux! Le personnel est souriant et aidant.

My first hostel experience but the one I traveled with raved about the cleanliness, staff and price. We had our own room with a bathroom and shower and it was all soooo affordable.
