The Sète youth hostel is a villa characterised by its 1903 heritage, and sits on the slopes of Mount Saint Clair, offering an exceptional panorama of the Mediterranean coastline.

Located in the centre of Sète, this unpretentious port offers a perfect taste of unspoilt Mediterranean Sea, and the Etang Thau, a long string of lagoons which stretch along the French coast.

The hostel has a veranda dining area with magnificent sea views, offering meals and a snack service in summer. There are 20 four person dorms in a leafy park setting, and 4 rooms for 2 people in a first-floor villa, along with a lounge and a bar where you can relax, and car parking which you can access by Belfort street.

Sète hostels also has the outdoor facilities for you to enjoy these spectacular surroundings: make the most of the picnic area in the garden and only a five minute walk from the city centre, with shops, bars and restaurants. Catch a 10 minute bus down the mountain to enjoy 10km of fine, sandy beaches.

Sète is also the country of Georges Brassens and Paul Valery, who have left their creative mark, along with the many festivals, the photogenic scenery and live poetry readings in the open air theatre.

fin de saison un jour pas de pain au petit déjeuner, le lendemain plus de beurre, plus de confiture; un autre jour jus de fruits imbuvable , machine à café défaillante....

super freundliche, hilfsbereite und herzliche Mitarbeiter; schöne Lage und ungewöhnliches Design der Häuser durch Terassen-Stil mit schöner Aussicht; Zimmer ist ok, leider Schließfächer defekt und Dusche nicht besonders ansprechend; Terasse und Empfangsbereich schön gestaltet Absolut ok, um dort zu bleiben.

Attraction tip

Take petite train. Don't bother going to beach as it is a long bus ride. Can walk to town - down hill - in fifteen minutes. Hitched a ride on a motorcycle from a local to go up to the cross. Friendly locals.
