Hostelz.com's Review
Auberge Griffon Aventure is in a remote area that is well signed off the side of the road and you will find yourself surrounded by nature and trees in this wilderness-embracing hostel.

The Location

The hostel is located in L'Anse aux Griffon and is only a very short drive to the entrance of the Forillon National Park.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorm rooms are in log cabins and they are separate from the main common area of the building. Only the beds are found in the cabins and you will have to walk to get to the kitchen, showers, or bathrooms. The cabins themselves are quite cosy and the beds are also comfortable.

The toilets here are compost toilets to respect the environment; however they are the most luxurious compost toilets on the planet. They are well looked-after and maintained; they do not smell; and the insides are equipped with beautifully finished wood, hand sanitizer, reading materials, and free condoms. The showers are again separate in a different log cabin. Each shower is in a different private cubicle with a locked door and, again, they are well maintained.

Common Spaces

The common spaces in this hostel include the massive, stainless-steel kitchen, which is very well equipped with anything that you may need to cook a massive feast; the bar area; the seating area inside; and the dining area inside around the bar. There is plenty of space to meet people and get around. While they do not have Wi-Fi internet here, they do have a computer with internet in the main dining area that people can take turns in using if they need to contact the outside world. Occasionally in the bar as well they have special guest musicians play concerts and this is a really quaint and intimate setting with which to have a band.

Summary

Auberge Griffon Aventure is a really great and eco-friendly hostel. They offer kayak rentals and other rentals and tours that you can do to explore the area from the main reception at the bar. It is a great place to relax, chill out, and get well acquainted with the natural features that the beautiful Gaspe Peninsula has to offer.
