HOSTELWORLD OVERALL RATING 9.8 Superb (340 reviews)
AUGUST 2013 '100% I have stayed in many hostels all over the world, and this was by far my favourite. At Sidsmums i was able to stop and breathe. And never before have I been so warmly welcomed. Tracy and Peter are so incredibly passionate about making sure this is a wonderful experience for all. Tracy kindly picked me up and dropped me off at the train station when I needed. Peter also saved the day and picked me (and my bike) up when I got lost. I was really sad to say goodbye and cant wait to return some day x ' AUSTRALIA

The room, facilities, location -- everything was just as expected. But Peter and Tracy went above and beyond to make sure that we had a great stay. From going out of their way to get us to the hostel the first night (since we arrived late and the buses had stopped), to saving us when we were stranded in the rain (without even having to ask) -- they're special people who love what they do, it's a beautiful place, and I wholeheartedly recommend Sidsmums for your stay in the Carcassonne area.

Best hostel stay I've had in Europe! Peter and Tracy are caring hosts who know the surrounding area very well, recommended some great things to do and made sure that I was well equipped with the bus/train information to get around. The location is beautiful and the facilities are top-notch. A stay at Sidsmums feels like staying with old friends. I'd visit again in a heartbeat.
