It is worth staying at an Avignon hostel because the city is very pleasant and welcoming, with an envious amount of history on show. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The most unmissable place to visit is the giant Palais des Papes or Palace of the Popes. The city walls are impressive and rare but soon start to blend into the background. Within the walls rests the old city, where there is an extended pedestrianized shopping area. There are many different architectural styles to see in the centre; the irregular street plan means you will probably get mildly lost. Here is where the walls prove useful once again. The bulk of the other museums, and virtually all the atmosphere, are also within the walls.
The hostels in Avignon are not located in the city centre. They are either on one of the islands in the Rhone River or on the far bank in Villeneuve-les-Avignon. There are bridges that you can walk across and also local buses that provide some help to get to and from the hostels. In exchange for this inconvenience you do get some fantastic views across to the city walls, the Palais des Papes, and the rest of the old city.
