Hostel La Rochelle is close to the local bus route that links travellers with the main railway station and the city centre. While you’re here why not hire one of La Rochelle’s ‘yellow bikes’ – the first 2 hours are free!

Agréable séjour , personnel sympathique et souriant. Toutes fois manquent de prises dans les chambres (2pour 6)et surtout un miroir essentiel dans une chambre féminine ( peut être à t'il était brisé ?) .
