My mother and I had quite a bit of trouble finding the hostel; if you have any luggage, taking a taxi is your best option for getting there. Once there, the hostel seemed rather deserted, and this made both of us uncomfortable. We were offered a free breakfast though, which was nice. Over all, our stay at the Grenoble was only so-so, and I would try to find a different hostel before staying here again. The area it's in is beautiful though, so I would certainly recommend visiting the city anyway.
