It is true that Cannes has the reputation of an exclusive resort, which means that luxury accommodation solutions fitted for well endowed pockets hold the market of lodging services. On top of that, it is widely acknowledged that prices do tend to increase during the most awaited events held in Cannes, such as the International Film Festival, or in the peak summer months, the most crowded season of the year.
Despite this reputation, budget travelers do have the opportunity of identifying decent accommodation services to reasonable prices. In fact, Cannes knows how to welcome its budget travelers, making available a quite consistent offer of hostels and youth hostels. Indeed, the services and the facilities they offer are fairly basic, but this should not become a problem for those who want to get to know Cannes in its utmost offer of tourist attractions, since such hostels are located quite closely to the most significant landmarks, not to mention the fact that Cannes can be easily crossed on foot, being a rather small resort.
For instance, Le Chalit has the benefit of being located 5 minutes from the Cannes train station, and close to other facilities providing services this hostel does not offer, such as connection to the internet and laundry facility. Le Chalit is a good starting point for exploring the city in terms of attractions, shopping, walking and sightseeing.
If in the mood for a rather isolated sleeping venue, Éthic étapes Cannes Jeunesse is located on the St. Marguerite Island and, besides the typical services provided by a hostel, it also offers Internet access and breakfast included in price.
A further incentive for opting for a hostel room while staying in Cannes is the fact that nowadays these establishments make available rooms seeming to look a lot more like any typical hotel room. Thus, clients should rest assured: their privacy is carefully protected, as well as their personal effects are.Go to top
