Gastama means "welcoming" in Esperanto. And it's true - this "new generation" youth hostel in the heart of Lille genuinely is a welcoming hotel! Located in the old town, 10 mins' walk from the stations and the centre, it exudes the characteristic friendliness of Lille. It is set in a traditional house, entirely renovated and refurbished with neo-industrial style of decor. There are accommodation options to suit all budgets: dormitories with communal bathrooms or rooms with private bathrooms. Communal areas, kitchen, living room, media room, and outdoor terraces provide convenient and sociable spaces along with all the facilities you'd expect in a traditional hostel. At the bar, approved by the Stop Harcélement (Stop Harrassing) association as a "no jerks" zone, you'll find a sociable and fully cosmoplitan atmosphere! Impeccable accommodation for a smart stay in Lille.
