manager was very helpful. Single room rather too small. Kitchen has very poor lighting, inadequate provision of cutting knives, and only a few damaged mugs were provided. Signage to the hostel was poor and confusing. Tourist office at main train station gave me the wrong bus route - No.6 instead of No.9.

Staff were extremely nice and really made my stay an excellent experience. Location is a little far from city centre but the friendly staff made up for the slightly longer distance

If you are a history buff, Chateau Bois de Luzy is a must and as a bonus the view makes the whole trip worthwhile. the staff were very accommodating and friendly. Challenges: Location is challenging to get to since it is on top of a hill that requires many twists and turns to get too. A point to be aware of as well is that access to the Chateau is limited during the day so don't show up between 1 and 5 pm.
