Chose this hostel because it said there was bicycle storage; there isn't! Very poor advertising. The reception staff, in particular the Spanish girl, didn't seem bothered and have no manners. Made up some awful excuse about us not being able to leave luggage in the store. Rooms are basic, you even have to leave a deposit for your beds sheets! Toilets were poor and missing tiles. Breakfast was poor. You will find a much nicer place to stay for this price where they make you feel welcome. Avoid!

Well located hostel when using the subway; nothing special about the atmosphere and the social gathering. Lack of plugs in rooms and showers could be cleaner, bigger and better designed (too small and you will feel like in a hammam at the end). Rooms are ok; breakfast with bread, jam, butter, cereals, milk and orange juice. The rooms and common parts are clean.

It is difficult to find an affordable hostel in Paris. Aloha does the trick. It is in a good neighborhood. People who say it is far from the Eiffel tower I think do not realize how big Paris is. In relation to other places Aloha is quite close and the walk is a nice one too. (there's even bike share stations on the way) If you get the beds at the promo price it is the best. The staff were very helpful (occasionally grumpy). The breakfast is early but it motivated me to get the most out of paris

Bathrooms very poor. While place is tiny and cramped. No atmosphere.

The dorm was perfectly placed in a good location.It was a 15 minutes walk to the Eiffel Tower and its close to the metro station.For that alone,it's very good for travellers like me. It was priced ok but maybe a little bit too steep or expensive. Not recommended for budget travellers definitely.Staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast in the early morning was sufficient to get your early morning energy boost.Wifi signal wasn't too bad, but the toilets were REALLY SMALL and cramped.

Hostel is good, nearby subway. The problem is toilet, showers are terrible, stop in 30 to 30 sec. But the other things are good, like accommodation, kitchen, etc.

Nice hostel, quite close to the metro station. Good for meeting people and the breakfast is better than expected. The showers are possibly the worst part: minuscule, with very few in the building, radical water temperature changes and the need to keep pushing a button every 20 seconds. The courtesy baguettes at the lobby give a nice hospitality feature, unexpectedly good. Would stay at again.

The showers were tiny and very uncomfortable! I couldnt regulate the temperature. Also, if the weather is hot, you will barely sleep as the rooms in the last floor turn to a greenhouse. the staff wasnt the best either, specially the Spanish speaker girl wh was quite pretencious, she seemed to be annoyed when a guest approached to her looking for advice or help. I liked the atmosphere between guests and the colors of the walls.

Great hostel, could do with a livelier atmosphere, but that all depends on the clientele you would like to attract, I will definitely be staying here again! Maybe a little more info on how to use the metro, but I managed it on my own!

The girl at the desk was super rude even after I walked through the door smiling and was extremely cheerful when approaching the desk. Other than that I would stay there again

Only 1 shower has the ability to control the temperature - the rest are really hot water and in the summer that's not fun, but they were clean showers and very clean bathrooms. Love the sink in the rooms, as well. Mattresses weren't the most comfortable but that is easily forgiven when you have such clean bathrooms/showers. Loved my stay here. Great staff, free breakfast, good environment, very close to metro stop, made new friends! Wish there was AC in the rooms during this heatwave though

Everything is good. the only slightly negative point is that the showers are small, so you'd better not be too tall.

The whole thing was good, people were nice, location is great, room is comfy! But the bathrooms were always either dirty or wet or both and there is no hot water for shower.

Great place to stay, tiny communal showers. The kids are loud but hey...it is what it is.

I have stayed here several times, and each time, I want to like the place, but I can't. I won't be back next year. It's time to try a new place out. It's pretty far from the main city attractions. I've only run into one kind and gracious staff member--the rest have been rude and condescending to me. I gave the place a second and third chance because I thought it was a fluke and really wanted to like the place. Alas…another frustrating experience.
