Located in the city of Grenoble, known as ‘the capital of the French Alps’, Hostel Grenoble has the perks of the countryside and those of the city - surrounded by a large park land it’s also only 10 minutes from the historical centre by bus.

At the hostel you’ll find modern architecture and eco-friendly buildings, a cosy bar area, good French food and comfortable en-suite rooms, all making it a very desirable place to stay. They can also book trips to local attractions for you.

Grenoble is a university city with an exciting nightlife, and there are historic sights to see, including the Bastille with panoramic views overlooking the city, the sundial and old cobblestone streets. Major ski resorts are also a shuttle bus away including Chamrousse, Les 7 Laux, les Deux Alpes, L’Alpe d’Huez, Autrans, Villars de lans.

My mother and I had quite a bit of trouble finding the hostel; if you have any luggage, taking a taxi is your best option for getting there. Once there, the hostel seemed rather deserted, and this made both of us uncomfortable. We were offered a free breakfast though, which was nice. Over all, our stay at the Grenoble was only so-so, and I would try to find a different hostel before staying here again. The area it's in is beautiful though, so I would certainly recommend visiting the city anyway.
