"AWESOME! - This place is great! The rooms are clean and well kept. Each bed has an individual light and outlet which is perfect. There is a full kitchen, dining area an lounge. It has everything a hostel needs and more. They have announcements with train schedules all the time. There is also a very nice large yard with a patio that makes it perfect to eat on the patio when it's nice out. Met so many great people here, including the two owners...

Annecy Travel Tips & Suggestions
I went to Annecy for a youth exchange -- it is beyond amazing! I will go again one day!
Annecy is aewsome. You should definitely go to the parks. One is next a lake and you can paddle boat up to the edge of a cliff. The buildings and briges are all very pretty.
Annecy is heaven on earth.
We decided on Annecy on a whim and what a lucky whim it turned out to be. Beeeautiful, picturesque Annecy is in France, yes, but the architecture is very swiss. Big ol Chalet type houses, incredible lake front mountain view. Not only do you step back in time, with the well-preseved buildings, but you step out of the caotic rush of some of the larger cities in France. Annecy has all the amenities of a big town, but provides a very welcome respite to backpack weilding travellers. Come here to relax, eat and sleep. Just not to party, cause their ain't to much going on. I lucked out because when I was there, there was a huge music festival, and we followed an amazing Brazilian band through the old town. They would stop periodically, forming a circle encouraging us to dance in their midst. That was living. Annecy is a retreat, a story book escape.
I lived in Annecy for 3 months and I found it to be one of the most well-hidden gems in France. There weren't a lot of tourists coming through and therefore you could really get a taste of French culture in this amazing, beautiful town in the French Alpes. The lake borders up to the base of the mountains...Italy and Switzerland are a short train ride away. Could you ask for anything more?
Annecy is quite simply one of the most beautiful places on earth.
What a beautiful city! I've been twice and both times it took my breath away. I recommend renting a small motor boat. Its a wonderful and extremely cheap way to get out on the lake. If you want to experience real french culture... get to Annecy!
If you're into taking pictures, this is a great place for it. There are canals running through the town past some great buildings (like an old prison) and up to a huge lake bordered by mountains. Get a crepe and sit in the town park to watch the boaters.
