Sidsmums Backpackers Hostels in Carcassonne is a Gite d'Etape (self catering accommodation). We operate as a Hostel and as such none of the rooms have en-suite facilities. We offer Dorm, Double, Family and Twin rooms within the main building where there is a shared shower room with toilet and sink, along with a seperate toilet room with sink.
In summer we offer Dorm Cabins and Cabins (arranged to your requirements) in the large garden area which have the use of a toilet/shower block with 2 toilets, 2 shower cubicles, 2 sinks and a larger sink used for hand washing clothes (for full load washing machine use €5).
All bedding is provided (cotton), pillows, duvets and blankets. Towels are available for 1€

The kitchen, lounge and dining area are shared by everyone as is the terrace, large garden with garden furniture and BBQ. Tea, coffee, and hot chocolate are provided. Free WIFI.

We can offer food on a Table D'Hote basis (prior arrangement) at approx €15 for an evening meal with wine. We also run an honesty fridge to provide cold drinks - small bottled beer €0.75

There is a NO SMOKING policy anywhere indoors, outside the upturned plantpot ashtrays must be used because in summer there is a considerable fire risk, please do not use the floor

Arrival and departure times are flexible, just give us an idea of time and we will accommodate. We do not operate a curfew in the evenings or a lockout period during the day, you are free to come and go as you please. However, mutual respect is essential, when the garden lights go out (around midnight) please think of others and reduce the volume down to a whisper.

Public transport from the airport to Carcassonne by shuttle bus is €5 per person, then from Carcassonne to Sidsmums it is €1 per person. A taxi will cost in the region of €30 (ridiculous for a 10/15 minute ride but we don't set the prices - sorry).
We can provide some free transport in and out of Carcassonne, however for a dedicated pickup/collection service for the airport, railway station or Carcassonne we must cover our time and mini bus/car fuel costs of €10 - 15€ per vehicle. SEE SPECIAL OFFER ABOVE
Bikes with helmets are available for half day (€5) or full day (€10) donation
