Located along the Sambre, quai Paul Verlaine, the site is positioned on the new spine established on the lower city, in the mesh of the Rive Gauche project that has already positively changed the dynamics of the neighbourhood. With its strategic location at the entrance of the city, visible from the ring and the esplanade of the train station, the Auberge will be a place of welcome, offering the docks, through its close relationship with them, a friendly face , alive and reassuring - day and night.

By implementing this Youth Hostel project, it will become the engine for the transformation of an island that needs today to be completely overhauled. This project is a fabulous opportunity to initiate quality projects on a site dedicated to developing a mix of functions (shops, housing, offices, ...) not to mention the possibilities of extending the project.
