Welcome to our hostel
Location, location, location. If your group is looking to explore this gem of a medieval city, then you cannot get a more central position than staying in the Hostel Carcassonne. Within the city walls, this popular hostel is right in the thick of things and offers budget accommodation in a five-star location – just steps away from the magical castle.
Carcassonne’s ancient walled city with its fairy tale collection of drawbridges, towers and atmospheric cobbled streets was thought to be the inspiration for Walt Disney’s The Sleeping Beauty. Its medieval core, the cité, was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1997.
Carcassonne is actually two cities in one. Besides the pretty-as-a-picture walled city and the hordes of visitors that throng its streets, there is a low-key, lower town that dates back to the Middle Ages. Known as the Bastide Saint Louis, it features typically French bars, shops, cafés and restaurants.
And of course there is also the Canal du Midi which you can discover by boat, by bike or on foot.
There are dozens of organised tours that have been arranged specifically with groups in mind which include (to name abut a few) a bike tour of the city; a reconstruction of a classroom from the 19th century, suitable for school groups and wine tours including information from experts.
So whether you are looking to discover the history of Carcassonne or just soak up its unique atmosphere and sample some of the local wines, then our hostel here would make the perfect base. Why not make an enquiry today?
