6/10 Good

location is brilliant in the centre of Bordeaux. However, i went expecting breakfast as advertised only to be told they did not serve food. They need to change their ads about the hostel. However, excellent cafe just round the corner. They also need to be more communicative about tourism, and where the tourist bureau is, as they themselves were not able to answer my questions. Staff good natured however.

Cute, clean, centrally located hostel!
Amazing hostel! Cute, clean and perfectly located on StCatherine street (longest pedestrian only street!! Lots of shopping!). All the facilities were in great condition and updated. As a solo traveler it could have been a little bit more socially oriented, but that is being super picky! Would recommend!

Great place for a girls weekend!
T'was a girls weekend in Bordeaux. We booked a private suite for four. Very comfortable, clean room. Confusion re the towels - we "rented" some per the welcome email and the room ended-up having towels. Hooks would be nice to hang them after showering, as well as water cups. Also, housekeeping was advertised. They did a partial cleaning and ended-up taking some of our souvenir cups. We fortunately got 4/6 back. Also, very much appreciated coffee and tea in the room. Overall a great stay and would return. Oh, and the location was good though there were a lot of homeless people/squatters in the square.

Best place to stay if traveling alone
If you travel alone this is the place for you. Very helpful and friendly staff. Very clean and comfortable. Stayed for a few days and I didn’t want to leave. Close to lots of beautiful churches and monuments. Lots of shopping nearby. If I’m ever in Bordeaux again I will definitely stay here

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.
