Pleasantly Affordable Private Home Apr 17, 2011
This hostel is located right near the campus of Mirail University outside of the city center. Although a little difficult to find at first, it is across the street from the metro which goes both to the main train station and city center.
It is a private residence with owners living in house. I did not find this to be a problem as they are very quiet and nonintrusive. My room consisted of three beds and was of a good size in that I never felt cramped. The bed was really comfortable and warm.
The common areas included the kitchen, living room, lower and upper terrace, two bathrooms and one shower room. I had unrestricted use of kitchen utensils and there was a frigerator in which to store groceries. Breakfast was free and included bread, condiments, tea, coffee, milk or hot chocolat. Very light but very filling. The living room had dining tables, flat screen tv and desktop computer with free internet.
I did not venture into either the upper or lower terrace but they were laced with plants and appeared very pleasant. There is a downstairs and upstairs toilet and a separate room with two showers. One is a glass shower and the other a tub with detachable shower head. The water in the glass shower was generally warm but seemed to go in out between temperatures sometimes. I did have to wait more than 30 minutes to use the shower on my last day there and was perturbed by the hair left behind. Yet, in other common areas, people seemed to clean up behind themselves.
In general, I would recommend based on price and ambiance.
