Fabulous 8,6 From 76 reviews

Good 6,0
Disappointed and poor design
I stayed in an 8 bedroom bed...if you have a suitcase or big bag it won’t fit in locker. There were only three of us one night and if there was a fire ...there were two large bags in the small path to door. I could expect it could be worse with more bags. Hard to brush teeth in morning when hostel is full, two sinks for woman for a number of rooms. Downstairs is a restaurant but also I think a lounging area??? Wasn’t quite sure if you could just lounge. It would be great if staff welcomed you with an overview of the city with a map. Great location. Very expensive considering.

A pleasant stay
Good location. Cozy design. Spacious and comfortable room. Breakfast is good at reasonable price. The restaurant "Kitchen" provides good food too. One advice to those using iPhone with phone language set in Chinese (I don't know if this applies to other languages other than English). You can only access to the hotel's wifi by turning the phone language into English

Marina, us2 night trip
Good 6,0
The location of the hostel was perfect for a night out and to occasionally come back to freshen up or drop things off. The beds were very private and the curtain blocked out a lot of light. Nice looking showers and amenities, even had a hair dryer. The lobby/restaurant is a nice place to hang and do some work/research. I would say that the showers and bathrooms could be cleaner. The room was warm at night and we couldn't keep the windows opened for too long because of the noise outside.

Good hostel
The hostel is new, central, clean, cheap and well decorated. The sounds are sound proofed. The breakfast is good. The girls wearing there are attentive and polite. I would say that the beer is a little expensive and it was hot at night due to it being 32C during the night but I would recommend this hostel.

When can I go back?
It was absolutely amazing, I got to meet new people everyday that was sharing the same passion for traveling as me. The breakfast was delicious and this hostel is located right in the center of Bordeaux, walking distance to every nice restaurants or touristic monuments

Nice hostel
New hostel, very clean and stylish. Location is great, right in the old town pedestrian area. But a bit far from bus stop to train station.

A great place to stay
Great place to stay. I love that there are shutters so you still have that little bit of privacy and it does well to block out unwanted light at night from other people. Very clean.
Naomi, gb1 night trip
Good 6,0
The place is hip and new with new facilities and a restaurant/bar in the lobby but it's not quite a hostel. It does not have any kitchen facility. Even just a kettle and a microwave would make backpacker's lives easier. I felt that the price was extremely high for what you get - even the luggage storage in the locker is at cost before check-in and after check-out.
