Small but cozy hostel, the lighting could be better around the common area but the kitchen facilities were good. It was a bit out of the way to Lorient city center but it's tucked away by a beautiful forest trail so I can't complain.

Communication with the staff was a big problem,inenglish as well in french. Also the heating system did not work even we asked them to turn it on. The wifi is available only at the reception desk and is very slow. Nevetheless, I appreciated that the rooms are only for 2 persons.
