The Best Hostels in Arles, France
The city of Arles, Provence's largest, is a popular destination for a short stay, or indeed as a central base from which to explore the entire region. A former Roman metropolis, the city itself is home to a 65 hectare UNESCO world heritage site, which includes a marvelous Roman amphitheater, one of the last in the world to still provide bullfighting, as well as other stunning buildings from that era. It was also, for a time, the home of legendary painter Vincent van Gogh, and his legacy (as well as the influence of its burgeoning contemporary art movement) can be seen around the city. Backpackers can elect either to stay in one of the city's many centrally-located hostels, or its modern and stylish hotels.
Central location, perfect for backpackers
Dorm Bed: $25.00
This hostel is ideally located, within walking distance of almost anywhere in Arles, especially close to the city's famous amphitheater, and with views of its Roman ruins. It is a smaller hostel, with just four bedrooms, so book quickly to avoid disappointment! Rooms cater for between 3 and 6 guests. The welcoming, English-speaking staff are able to provide a light breakfast of fresh bread and accompaniments free of charge, though well-equipped kitchen facilities are also available, allowing you to prepare your own meals if you wish. Rooms here are very secure, with codes required to get through any door in the hostel, and sheets are included.
