La propreté n'est pas du tout au rendez-vous.
Dormir dans des draps propres ou il y a encore du sable... À se demander si les draps ont été laver.
Bref, très mauvaise expérience ici alors que j'ai déjà loué plusieurs appartement ou je n'ai jamais été déçu.
La vie de surfeur! Barbeuc, surf, flechettes, guitares et balades de foret! le tout sur fond d'auberge espagnole avec un vrai mix de gens de tous pays.
Super accueil! même si nous sommes arrivé tard. l'annonce correspondait bien au produit. Il y a même plus puisque l'hôte s'occupe de vous depuis la petite balade matinale jusqu'au départ pour la plage en Van (avec petit déjeuner compris). dans l'eau Carwyn prodigue ses conseils pour améliorer notre surf. Ben et Raff ses deux acolytes sont là pour l'aider. Le soir barbeuc pas cher et soirée tous ensemble avant de sortir à Hossegor. Vous avez évidemment le choix de participer ou de vivre votre vie comme dans une auberge classique. Nous avons , nous choisi de vivre l'expérience à plein et nous avons vécu 5 jours de folie dans un univers anglophone. on s'est fait des potes, on a progressé en surf et on s'est détendu dans une atmosphère très cool.
The listing description was an understatement!
It was the ultimate vacation. I learned to surf, windsurf and had a great time doing it.
Great place to get away for the weekend, reminded me of my traveling days back Aussie. Carwyn was very welcoming and helpful. The other people we met were all super friendly.
Awesome hostel :) more of a family house. Great area. Carwyn's a total legend, picked me up from the train station, took me anywhere I needed to go so did the other dudes that run the house. Will def return for some more surfing & partying :)
I had such a blast at Carwyns place. He's an awesome guy, all of the people staying/working there were very cool too, great food, beautiful beaches and surroundings. Bakeries/cafés are within walking distance (which Carwyn took us through a lovely walk through the woods to), Hossegor is less than 10 min away with restaurants, shops, grocery stores and everything you could need.
Come to my Surf-House in the town of Seignosse, close to the beach and towns such as Hossegor and Capbreton. I am an ex professional surfer and can offer group or private surfing lessons/ guidance. I have owned this hostel for the last 15 years and have been in the area for over 20 years. Its safe to say I know this area well and can provide you with a unique experience that few can offer.
