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.

Die Auberge de Jeunesse ist wunderbar gelegen, man hat eine grossartige Rundsicht. Für Menschen, die nicht so gerne aufsteigen und kein Auto haben ist das wohl ein Problem. Es war toll, eine Küche zu haben, natürlich war dort die Ordnung nicht so perfekt, aber es ging gut. In unserem Gebäudeteil war die Haustüre defekt, man konnte also nicht abschliessen. Ich aber freue mich, dass ich für wenig Geld ein paar Tage wohnen kann, interessante Gespräche habe, dafür etwas weniger Komfort.

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.
