Stayed there in a private double bed room. Room was cozy and comfortable overlooking the mountain. The common toilet is available at every level, and generally is clean. The shower is a little choke during our stay but not major. The breakfast in the morning is fantastic! And the common kitchen is well maintained. The road to the hostel is a little bumpy as u need to drive up a tiny slope, don’t worry, parking is available.

Auberge bien sympathique, accueil affable : conseil sur les sites à découvrir, les loisirs, les restaurants avec réductions. Très silencieux et très bon petit déjeuner.
