I stayed two differents nights in the hostel. The first stay was in a mixed room of 4, the room was airy and the bathroom was simple but ok. In the second stay was in a mixed room for 6, on the first floor. There the ceiling are very low, and the space between the beds are very little... in compensation the bathroom are better than the room for 4. The staff was very kind, the breakfast is ok. Location: not so far from the metro republique, so easy acess, and I feel safe walking around by night.

Best thing about this hostel is the location. I think it would be hard to find a hostel so close to the centre at the same price. Also near to lots of student areas if your going out! Rooms were a bit small but decorated nicely with en suite, modern bathrooms. Only negative I would say is that when it says there is "luggage storage" there isn't - you just leave your cases in a corridor next to the front desk. It is CCTV watched and we didn't have any problems but I still felt a little uneasy!

The place itself run great it's a very quiet hostel, we stayed in a 4 bed dorm the room was quite small but the beds and facilities were great. It was walking distance to everything if you want to save money on a metro card. I would stay here again.

Stayed here 7 years ago and apart from a lick of paint, the place hasn't changed. Upgraded from large dorm to twin room this time around. Great location beside Republique metro station & walkable from centre of city. Facilities not great but not needed with what Paris has to offer outside the door!

Great location close to République. I reported a broken lights in a bathroom of our 4bed dorm to a receptionist so they moved us into 3bed private room which was much better. We had a whole room just for us two, free towels and nice view to a square. It was not possible to heat up, so the room was very cold during the night. Free breakfast is simple but fresh and good start of day. No common space to meet other people except kitchen. The receptionist refused my request for late check-out.

I spent 2 nights at this hostel. The staff was very nice, the localization was good and the breakfast it was good as well BUT I GOT BED BUGS. I was in a room with 2 friends and they didn't get it but I did....a lot! in my upper body so for this reason I don't recommend this hostel.

What this hotel has going for it is location. However don't come here to meet people. Further, I had a few issues with the staff. There was somebody sleeping in my bed and so I slept in the opposite bottom bunk that night as the guy didn't speak English. Over the next few days I told the staff multiple times and they just ignored me. Further, the bed I ended up sleeping in was broken and they ignored that too when I told them. I couldn't sleep in a top bunk due to ankle injury :(

Great location, helpful staff. Clean and quiet. There is no common room to socialize in. 3 computers are available for guest use plus free wifi. Safe deposit boxes are available for small items like a camera and passport, but not big enough for a laptop.

Great hostel with very clean rooms and friendly staff, the breakfast was very nice. Rooms were a bit small though for sharing with 4 people

The Hostel is very well located. Some member of the staff are good and the breakfast is nice. The bedroom is quite small and there isn´t room for the bags, but the shower is very good. There isn´t a common area to hang out.

First of all, the hostel is all in all an awesome value. Although it has to be noted that there are no security lockers in the room, and the ones at the reception (free ones) are very small (for little valuables) and only 3 larger ones, where you can barely fit a 15" pc (but it fits). Appart from that, awesome location, staff, an ok breakfast (included) and did I mention the awesome value? Would recommend.

The kitchen facilities were a little disappointing and as this hostel was busy there was extremely limited space to cook and eat afterwards. Other than that, everything was wonderful
