The Toulouse hostels aren't plentiful in number, though visitors to France's fourth largest city shouldn't have too much trouble finding a budget-friendly place to stay. The Toulouse hotels on the whole are well-priced, and travelers might be surprised by how affordable some of the city's apartment rentals can be.
Travelers in need of cheap Toulouse hostels might begin their searches with the La Petite Auberge de Compostelle. Found at 17 rue d'Embarthe, this highly affordable hostel enjoys a good location. Just five minutes away is the city's main square, Place du Capitole. Rooms are dormitory style and have either four, six, or eight beds. Standard amenities in each and every unit include a kitchenette and a bathroom. Linens and towels are provided, and lockers are available for storage. Outside of the rooms, the facilities include a guest kitchen with a refrigerator, a washing machine, a dryer, a common room, and a barbecue area. Internet access is free.
The other option for travelers who are searching for Toulouse hostels is the InToulouse Hostel. A bit different from your average hostel, InToulouse is a guesthouse. In other words, the rooms are found in a family home. It's not unlike a bed and breakfast in many ways, as the owners are always close at hand should guests need anything. Guests have the option of renting a bed in one of the two guest units, and this helps to keep the rates very low. Small groups who find themselves in luck will be able to rent an entire room or perhaps both rooms if there aren't any other guests. There isn't much more to the guest units than bunk beds and lamps, which also helps to keep the prices down. General facilities include a kitchen with a refrigerator and a common area with a TV and a DVD player. WiFi internet access is available at no extra cost, and when guests aren't out enjoying Toulouse attractions such as the Jacobin Convent, they might choose to relax in the hostel's garden. The address for the InToulouse Hostel is 1, impasse du professeur Nougayri. Close by is Mirail University, and it's just a ten-minute metro ride into the Toulouse city center.
While there might not be a ton of cheap Toulouse hostels, there are plenty of cheap Toulouse hotels that cater to budget travelers. One example is the Hotel Aux Ambassadeurs. The rooms are clean and well-equipped at this cheap hotel, and the location at 68 rue Bayard means that guests won't have to travel very far to get to the heart of town. Also worth thinking about when it comes to cheap accommodations in Toulouse are the city's more affordable vacation rentals. Apartments that keep the fancy accents to a minimum are the best bet for those who have a low price in mind.
