That's the first time that I went back from my holiday with the bug bites all over my body!!! From my ear to my hand, it's itching everywhere; I don't even have the courage to count the number of them.
The reception is closed between 11:30 and 18:00, which means that there's really NOBODY working there to open the luggage room for you. Still, you could pay 2euros to put your bag in the automatic machine in the hall; your choice.
I would never come back to this hostel. I've stayed in more than 20 hostels all over the europe and that's the only one for which I would say so.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In Biarritz, European capital of surfing, you will feel privileged at the Youth Hostel. Moderne, comfortable, welcoming, and user-friendly, it offers a large choice of sport and cultural activities. It couldn't have a better setting. Located near all means of transportation, it is a gateway to the Basque hinterland. Hiking is definitely on the menu - You'll be at the foot of the Pyrenean Mountains, and on Spain's doorstep. Many pilgrims have a stop at the YH before starting the coastal path, also called "El Camino Frances", leading to Santiago de Compostela. This YH is located in a Natura 2000 protected area, on a lake shore, and very close to Biarritz Ocean / la Cite du surf, the biggest European Surfing and Marine museum. ... more less
