ho36 Les Ménuires
NUMBER OF ROOMS: 35 rooms
CLOSED ANNUALLY: Open all year round
THE STORY: After opening a spot in the Guillotière neighborhood of Lyon, the ho36 team set up its bunk beds in Les Ménuires, at the center of the 3 Vallées ski resort. The concept hasn’t changed (a new generation hostel with affordable prices), but guests come prepared with skis on their backs at this new location. There are nineteen classic rooms (for 2 to 8 people), twelve shared rooms (4 to 6 people) and four private lofts (6 to 10 people), designed by the Alma Interieurs design firm with cozy Scandi style (wool, wood, cork, blue and green tones, blankets, low lighting…), and clever use of the space (triple bunk beds, XXL drawers, a closet for ski suits….). Double rooms starting at €109 a night, beds in shared rooms starting at €25 a night.
TOILETRIES: Dr Bronner soap, Egyptian Magic body lotion.
INTERNET: Very fast free wifi.
BREAKFAST: €8, with coffee or tea, bread, viennoiserie, miniature crepes that you make yourself, muesli, fromage blanc, jams, fruit juice, cow and plant milks.
LITTLE LUXURY: It’s possible to reserve for just one night!
