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

3/5 Okay

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
Good breakfast at reasonable price
