The location is good, close to metro station. but be careful, you'd better confirm your booking before your arrival because they seems to have system problems when I was there and they didn't get my booking.......The staffs there were very kind and helpful to find us another hostel, but not as good as this one. We ended up with staying just one night in this hotel. the room is clean though.


Room was dirty, walls where stained, furniture not in great condition and bed was like a hammock! Staff was helpful and location is convenient.


Nice hostel with good breakfast. It was located in a cosy area with many resturants and bars. The metrostation was close!


Location is good and staff is friendly. Stayed in a single private bedroom and bed was uncomfortable, shower was missing shower head and there was mold on the shower ceiling. Also mold in kitchen. Elevator so small and sooo slow. Lighting in the bedroom and bathroom very dim.


Close to the metro station; Breakfast is included which offers you a really good meal; Wifi works in the room, but the room is quite small and NO locker in your room. You can only store your property in a very very small locker located in the ground floor of the hostel; There are many restaurants and bars nearby the hostel so in the night it would be quite noisy so please aware it.


Great staff and convenient location.


very basic hotel but have breakfast! thats good. one thing i like this hostel is near to Metro station Republique and near to HALAL restaurant. Easy to get halal food as a lot of shop sell kebab. other that, this hotel near to laundry shop! easy for us to wash our clothes. the staff can speak English thats great! i enjoy my stay here. the bad thing is that toilet.. the shower need to be repair.

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!


Great staff, good location, clean and tidy - only improvement would be luggage lockers in the room. Thank you.


Friendly staff! Beds are comfortable.


Good Location . Near Place Republique , supermarket, metro. Staff very nice.


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.


Great hostel in a great location with friendly staff :) I only wish they had a baggage room to store bags in while waiting for the room!


The hotel Was ok. The metro station near the hotel connects with many lines. The staff Was very friendly and helpfull. One of the nights the fire alarm went on and all the hotel had to go out at 1am, they never gave clear reason of what happend... The breakfast Was good also

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.
