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.

Actually, the location was very good if you own a car, hostel is in the middle of the hill, even the bus drive you half the way, it still challenging for most of the people while you have luggage or backpack...the staffs was nice and super helpful. Hostel are quiet and peaceful, you can hear birds and insect singing night and day. Walk down to the harbour just 5 mins. There were two lovely talking cats as well. After dark you can see a glittering harbour view. Definitely will re-visit here.
