I spent several nights here. The room was alright with a balcony where people could sit and relax. No air cond in the dormitory but got all the basics to have a good night sleep. The staff were friendly and helpful. Located in the vicinity of the city centre and easy to walk around. Bang for the buck!

An averagely good hostel, comfortable enough bed, wifi is pretty good (though only available in the common area, not in the rooms). They offer laundry and staff is friendly enough. Nothing special, but a good alternative given the price. The view from the balcony is pretty sweet though, since the hostel is at the top of the hill. You don’t have to go all the way around, there are stairs giving you a shortcut down the hill and into town. It’s steep, but not very long. Perfectly fine if you’re an averagely unfit person like myself. Showers and sinks are on timers so you have to press the button a few time while showering, but this is no problem. The pressure was good and there was enough hot water. Everything clean enough. I’d stay here again.

Good: The youth hostel is close to the centre and the staff is helpful. Annoying: No couch available in the common areas. The wifi is not available in the bedrooms. You have to sign in with hard-to-remember log in details every time you enter the common areas.

This is the best hostel I have ever been to. Everything is new, clean and looks recently renovated. The double room was very spacious and had a lot of storage. There was also a fan and access to the balcony. The bathrooms were clean. The kitchen is large so you can easily find space to cook. You also get your own storage. The staff is helpful. The WiFi only works in the common areas. The auberge is centrally located.

This place was disappointing. There are some good things about it: the staff are nice, the price and location are good, and the rooms open on a building-long balcony with a view. But, even when compared to other youth hostels, the communal areas are run down and the sleeping rooms are industrial. There is a fee for the wifi, which worked just OK for me near the common area. My main concern was that it was not safe for women. There are separate shower facilities, and there are individual cubicles for the showers, but anyone can just walk in the shower rooms, as they are open to the exterior corridors. When I was there a man took a video of a girl showering. He held his phone under the door, and she saw it. This is not the fault of the hostel but perhaps the shower rooms should have keys.

If you (as a non-French speaker) search for "Hostel Nouméa" on the net, this is the one that will come up - although there is in fact a second one in town, halfway between Centre Ville and Anse Vata. Anyway, this place was built in the sixties and you can tell immediately, because it hasn't been renovated since; I assume either because the cost is prohibitive or simply because they don't really have competition. The dorm rooms are absolute barebone: Old bunks, power plugs, and one locker for each bed. Coming from AUS/NZ, it's pretty hard to swallow however it's really all I needed since I didn't plan on hanging around the dorm anyway. If the balcony shutter is closed, it can get quite stuffy; you get your pillow and sheets from reception upon check-in and have to return these before checking out. As mentioned in older reviews, the staff is friendly, knowledgeable and speaks excellent English (in fact much better then the staff of the city's official Tourist Information). Be aware that nine out of ten guests here are from France, hence if you're not fluent in French and not much of an extrovert, you can easily feel left out, especially if you only stay a short time. The non-French guests you meet here tend to be interesting people, as New Caledonia is not much visited by non-French speakers (that's not to say the French are boring - I met some great folks!). Back to the hostel. The kitchen operates on an erratic locker system which holds your bowl, plate, glass, and cutlery - one of each. The walk-in fridge also has a locker, your key opens both lockers assigned to you. Kitchen utensils are as barebone as the rooms, sometimes you'll have to wait for a chef's knife to be available. There's nothing like a free food shelf here (save for some leftover salt and tabasco sauce). There's a nice outdoor area overlooking the city, as well as a dining room, a "lounge" with ping pong table, and an "attic" with public computer. There's a laundry room as well, using the washing machine is quite expensive at almost 5 €/load. They also have a dryer however there's a massive clothes line outside, so during good weather (which is common in Nouméa), I used these. You can arrange yourself with all these things, even with the steep stair shortcut (don't use it at night if you can make out young locals sitting there) leading from Boulevard Bauvan to the road that terminates just behind the hostel, but the worst thing here is the WiFi. You have to buy vouchers from reception: 1 hour for 200 CFP or 5 hours for 500 CFP. Then you have to go to a login site, log in, use it and log off again in order for the timer to stop - each single time. Is hugely annoying and a lot of money! Use the free WiFi in town (ie McDonald's) whenever you can. Overall not a bad place to stay, but it could be so much better! Four stars only because of the nice atmosphere and because there are no comparable alternatives; it is and will probably still be the first address for backpackers and budget travellers in Nouméa/New Caledonia.

Forget about all the reviews that say no AC, no mirror etc etc,.. they should pay twice the price and go elsewhere. This is a 'youth hostel' so you shouldn't expect hotel standards. We found it great. Close to town, affordable price, very helpful staff. Beds very basic but completely adequate for a budget stay. Good view over city. Basic crockery/utensils provided, secure chiller compartments, adequate cooking facilities and dining area. The one shame is that the local church rings its bells every 15 minutes, day and night, which doesn't make for the most wonderful sleep, unless you almost completely shut the glass sliding door, then you don't get any cooling breeze and might find it all too hot and stuffy. If only, they could give us some peace at night. Thanks to all the helpful staff, you guys are awesome :-)

As a cheap option for budget travellers and backpackers this can't be beaten in Noumea. It is a hostel not a hotel, so keep that in mind before you complain. Great for a night a two between trips to the islands, but probably not much more unless you are looking for work. Rooms are basic, but airy and do not need air-con like the stuffy hotels in town. You make up your own bed and return linen to the hampers at the office. Lockers are available for when you realise that you have once again brought too many clothes for this climate. One of the few places around that have PC's for good Skype and Internet access. Communal kitchen is very well set-up - but bring your own tea, coffee, powdered milk etc. The only negatives for those wanting the buzz of the tourist district - this hostel is not in it. It is on the edge of the downtown area and you would need to catch a taxi back here if you went to the tourist district at night. Buses finish at around 7.30. Also, perhaps the stairs up to the hostel (Noumea is hilly), and you may not wish to walk alone in this district at night. I had no problems, but it is fairly quiet.. Just get your shopping done during the day and then head back to the hostel to cook up a storm and swap some yarns or watch the telly with your fellow travellers. Make sure you visit the market in the early morning to stock up on supplies. The supermarkets are quite expensive. Have fun!
