So, what’s up with Andorra? This tiny little country tucked between France and Spain is part of the gorgeous pyrenees mountains and largely overlooked. Which is why we’ve decided to gather the coolest hostels in Andorra!
If you’re excited to winter in Europe and enjoy epic ski resorts, you’re in for a treat.
Most importantly, there is an epic 5 star hostel called Mountain Hostel Tarter which we’re bursting to show you.
Note: As you’ve already seen, there are only 5 hostels worth recommending to you. The hostel scene isn’t huge here, and we only ever pick out those we’d recommend to our readers, friends and family. Andorra is also a small country, so having one base is really the best option anyway.
El Tarter is home to Grandvalira, the most epic snowpark in the Pyrenees with over 200km of ski slope. Erm, yes please!
Need we say more? Oh yeah, it’s also home to a jaw-dropping 5 Star Hostel.
Yes go on, you may keep scrolling…
Mountain Hostel Tarter (TOP Choice with Swimming Pool!)
Of course we couldn’t help ourselves and had to kick-start this Andorra guide with the BEST hostel in the entire country: Mountain Hostel Tarter!
This is of course a 5 Star Hostel and definitely one of our absolute faves when it comes to outdoor adventure. This accommodation is a XVIII century building, a former old barn, completely reformed for being a 5-star hostel. You will find free coffee and tea, and a fully equiped kitchen to cook your own meals.
The absolute jewel of the crown is their outdoor swimming pool – hot tub. This, my dear traveler, is one of the many points that makes the difference between Mountain Hostel Tarter and the other hostels in Andorra.
Where do we start? Argh, this is tricky. Ok ok, let’s get your attention with…
Outdoor pool-jacuzzi (hot and open all year)
Eco-Friendly Hostel = Solar energy
Bike-friendly = Workshop + tools, security box, personal padlock
200m from Grandvalira (ski resort main access)
Panoramic mountain views
“Mountain Hostel Tarter is a unique establishment in Andorra, made for travelers by travelers and designed to offer what we usually look out for when we’re travelling: a comfy and practical place to stay, in a warm and friendly atmosphere. All of this with the best quality/price you’ll find, and in a renewed rustic and sustainable home.”
Looking for the best Andorra ski hostel? This is it!
The large outdoor terrace is certainly the best place to spend your time when you’re not out and about.
If you’ve had enough of the fresh air head inside to the cosy living room that’s home to a fireplace, sofas, TV, games etc.
Cool: The occupation of the hostel is just 33 people. We like the intimate atmosphere this creates.
They have now 3 double rooms as well as 4, 5 and 6 people dorm.
Oh and one last little thing to make you smile; check out is as late as 11am.
Now you may be asking, why did we leave the capital city of Andorra ’til last?! Well, unfortunately there aren’t any impressive hostels here, and even this one we’ve inclued does not offer shared dorms.
Still, if you need a place to stay for a night or two in this south-western city, we recommend this hostel Andorra La Vella…
But don’t let that put you off thinking this is a hotel – it didn’t happen to us!
Obviously the saving grace of this place is the onsite pub. This is a great communal area which brings being together alongside the comfort of returning to your own private room when you’ve had enough.
It’s a really cool place with bright decoration and themed rooms ranging from comic books, to movies and music.
Overall it offers a modern vibe but still with that homely feeling so that you can properly relax and don’t worry about creating a speck of dust!
Guests can book themselves in to a classic suite for two, a twin, triple, quadruple or even family room.
Some of the amenities include ski rental, kitchen, television area and reading zone.
To put it simply; no. This is a ski destination and as most people know, this isn't exactly a cheap hobby. To give backpackers an idea, hostel prices in Andorra range from €24-37 for a bed in a shared dorm.
