I only stayed for 1 night so i didn't need much. For people who stay longer, you might renew the bathrooms... But overall it was very good!

2 person room unsuitable. Sleeping area too hot / no ventilation / inadequate head space / dangerous access via short steep narrow ladder. Would not have booked if I had known this and it was not mentioned.

Auberge sympathique, simple, avec confort acceptable. Personnel très agréable, chambres "normales" pour une auberge. Propreté correcte. Très bien situé pour faire le mont Sancy et plein de randonnées/ascensions possibles autour !

Zwei aufsässige Hunde der Herbergenbetreiber waren störend, ebenso die verkotete Wiese. Der Zugang zur Küche führt zeitweise (wenn die Bar geschlossen ist) auf verschlungenen Wegen durch das Fernsehzimmer und die Veranda, was mühsam ist. Warme Milch zum Frühstück gab es nur aus Milchpulver. Auf der Website fehlt der Hinweis, dass es Frühstück gibt und dass dieses im Preis inbegriffen ist. Insgesamt wirkt die Jugendherberge ungemütlich.
