Located in a botanical park 2km north west of the city centre, Hostel Nîmes is a small, laid-back hostel that boasts a beautiful terrace in an olive grove. It’s a great place to stay on the edge of an exciting city with ancient heritage and vibrant emotions of the Feria, a popular festival centred on bullfighting held each year.

The hostel has free Wi-Fi, Internet access, laundry facilities, a well-equipped kitchen and meals are served. There are also plenty of outdoor spaces for you to enjoy your surroundings, seating areas to relax and chat to fellow travellers and a ping pong table to challenge them to a game or two.

Outside the hostel there are several hiking routes, you can kayak down the Gorge du Gardon, the La Bouscarasse Waterpark is just 35 minutes away, and there are many ancient monuments from the Roman period that you can visit.

I made my booking online several months in advance of my stay. A few days before I left for France, I was sent an email saying that they were cancelling the booking. Not only did they not rebook me into another hotel, they still have not refunded my deposit a month later. This is my first bad experience with an HI hostel, and I am extremely disappointed in the customer service from this location.
