No atmosphere, this is not a hostel it's a hotel with bunk beds. The only thing good about this place is it's location


Place is very central to all sights in Paris, The only negative was the shower, no head on it so it sprayed the whole room, and it had a button type tap which onlu gave you about 30 sec before shutting off.


Loved the lockers on the first floor (most are big enough to fit your documents.) It's very close to the Republique Metro station, which will honestly take you anywhere in the city with ease. The atmosphere outside is lively and it's easy to find a happening bar on any night of the week. If that's your scene, you'll love what the area has to offer. I actually moved halfway through my stay to try another locale (near the 2nd district) but that was solely due to personal preference.


Everything was excellent!! The people were so kind, the pleace is clean and it has all you may need to have a good stay in Paris. I totally recomend it.


So sad to see there is no stuff to take care of technic request such as adding the ladder that should have been in the first place, that is used for climbing up the upper floor of the bed, at its place.

Everything alright such as good location, helpful staff, comfortable room and breakfast provided. The washroom is big enough and cleanliness. The two things i would like Absolute to improve are 1. more sockets in the room (even it already has 2 sockets in the bedroom and 1 socket in the washroom). 2. allow/step up free access wifi in kitchen/ restaurant as it is very inconvenience if we can access wifi there.


Very friendly staff. Good breakfast. Excellent location, close to Metro and neighbourhood is vibrant, however it can be loud at night on the street below. Compared to some other hostels I've stayed in recently, Absolute is looking a little shabby and tired. Rooms are poorly lit and stuffy and two power points for four people just isn't enough. Wifi very good in rooms.


We stayed 2 nights in a 4 bed mixed with an ensuite and it was so small, there was not much room at all when 4 people and bags were in there but it was in a good location and staff were friendly
