Appear to stay there for only one night because for the high price. Location is a bit far from the main train stations, took us 15 mins to walk and find the hostel. The hostel itself is quite small, especially the shower room. Breakfast included, which was the merit. In conclusion a bit expensive for the service and rooms offered, but that's Paris.

On the up side, hardwood floors, winding staircase, and old-fashioned wallpaper gave the place some personality. There was always someone at the reception, and the staff was more than happy to help with my questions on how to get around. Decent breakfast. On the down side, there are no big lockers in which to keep luggage, just a hallway where any other guests could easily root through your bag if they wanted. Also, our window wouldn't close, so there was quite a bit of a noise from the street.

Staff was alright and the location was good, very close to Paris' metro. Room was relatively clean and it wasn't noisy at night given my room had a window right next to the city street. The breakfast cook was very friendly!

The hostel is ok. Really small room, beds are not that confortable and are really noisy. The location and the breakfast are good! You can pay more, you should stay in a better place, otherwise you wont find anything better for this price.

Good place, clean and great location. Bad thing is the only common are is the kitchen.

The bathroom was not well ventilated at all and was missing a shower head. After someone showered the bathroom floor was soaking wet and had no way of drying. It was constantly slippery and wet. If it were not for having nice roommates the experience would have been even worse. There is no common area. If you are looking to meet people, do not stay at this hostel. Location is good and safe, staff are friendly. Breakfast is standard for hostels.

The private bathroom in my shared dorm wasn't very clean. It was modern and more less in a good shape, but the floor was really dirty and it seems like it wasnt cleaned for days. There was not much storage space in the room. Somebody was living there for a longer time and took all floor and closet space possible. The only option was to keep my luggage with me on my bed. B-fast place is too small and cave-looking and its loud at night with people partying next door. Staff very friendly though!

Would've been nice to have more of a common room area, the kitchen was useful but in an unnviting cellar with no WiFi so there was nowhere to sit except the tiny area around reception. Otherwise good, nice staff, tasty breakfast and in a central area (republic) could've done with slightly nicer bedding but the ensuite bathroom was fine.

The hostel is located close to the metro station La Republique, so it is quite easy to get around from there, even though it is a bit away from city centre, attractions etc. The room was very small, but as long as you only plan to use it for sleeping, then it really isn't a problem at all. I highly recommend it!

Great location, there are multiple metro lines that run through the nearest station. This makes transportation quick and easy. Our room was small, which we expected. There was mold in the shower, which was so small it made movement difficult. Our first morning we were woken by the fire alarm which had gone off when someone used too much hot water (or that is what we were told). Staff was friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Kitchen was missing cutlry and cups. Our expectations were met.

This was my 2nd time staying at this hostel within the past year - everything is clean and comfortable and it's a good place to stay for the price.

I would definitely stay at the Absolute Paris Boutique Hostel again!! I thought the staff was very friendly and it was in a great location. Very close to the Metro with lots of restaurants, shops and bars in the area. The rooms are pretty small but we had our own private bath and breakfast was included as well :) I would recommend staying here. Thumbs up.

The dorm rooms and bathrooms were clean, modern and beautiful. However I was in a four bed dorm room by myself for two days and there was no common room, making it hard for independent travellers to meet other people. The kitchen was a bit grotty. A bit of insect spray would help. There were little flies everywhere that were climbing all over the food.

Location is good to go out at night, a little far from sights though.

EXCELLENT staff, wonderful place! Right next a beautiful bridge to cross over to the center of the city. Peaceful, very clean and large rooms, almost homely feeling. Only downside was that the kitchen didn´t have any cooking abilities (couldn´t use stove/oven) but breakfast (especially coffee) was good. Loved loved loved the staff, super nice. Cleaned our rooms and bathrooms everyday and very helpful with any questions. Even got a bottle of wine in our room as a gift, when in Florence!
