I stupidly overlooked arriving in southern France during the Grand Prix in Monaco and the Cannes Film Fest. Hostels were all booked up and I was lucky to find a bed at Altea Hostel... I soon realized why. The place was moderately clean, not great, hair on bathroom floor and mattress smelled a bit mouldy... Disposable sheets, blah, but fine. I paid 26eu for my room. The internet (hostel bookers I think) quoted 16eu. I figured, hey, busy weekend prices change, until I found out that everyone else in my room paid 16eu. The front desk offered nothing. I expect to barter in other countries, but in France, I expect set prices and do not appreciate feeling ripped off. AND for 26eu, breakfast would be nice.
