What you'll find in a hostel
France has two chains of youth hostels: FUAJ and LFAJ. Both offer low-cost, basic but comfortable sleeping accommodation, with washrooms, recreation rooms, etc suitable for cyclists, walkers, hikers and anyone travelling on a budget. You can buy breakfast and evening meals, or cook your own.

They offer very good value for groups, and often have good conference/ teaching rooms. Group organisers will get good rates and every assistance for bookings outside the peak holiday season. Hostels are also suitable for independent travellers, and generally offer special facilities for families.

How to book ahead
For groups: FUAJ offers a central reservation service for groups of more than 10 people, e.g. a school party, a sports team or other group, whatever your project is and whether you will be travelling in France or abroad: seminar, travel, stay, tour etc... have a look at their offers and leave it to their Group Section to organize it. See their contact details below.

For independent travellers: to be sure to find a bed in French hostels, it is advisable to book ahead - especially in the peak holiday season. You can book at most French hostels by fax - or in some cases by e-mail - up to 6 months in advance.

Do you need to be a member?
To stay in a Youth Hostel in France, you will need a hostelling membership, which you can obtain from your national Association (connect to the International Youth Hostel web site to know its address -http://www.iyhf.org).

If you forget to purchase one before your arrival in France, you will be able to get hold of a "Guest Card" at the hostel. Once you have paid for a few nights at a higher rate, you will be entitled to full membership and given access to any Youth Hostel in the world.
