Highly disappointed in this hostel. Only good thing was the location. Breakfast was awful, staff were rude! Had to wait for one girl to finish a call to a friend before she would even help me & THEN she made me feel like I was inconveniencing her! The room smelt like urine, the showers took forever to heat up and then I was forced to pay 10 euro for leaving my bags over night, there was no signage advising of cost & I refused to pay, so they took my laptop & wouldn't give it back till I paid.

Really cool hostel, good facilities and nice rooms, free breakfast, 20 minute walk to Eiffel tower so not too far out of the centre, really close to a metro station and a supermarket too. It was quite expensive though, but I guess that's Paris.

No elevator. The stairs are narrow and dangerous. The showers are too small. The dinning room is quite dark and not very clean.

They need to provide better breakfast and reception needs to have more choices of beer/food. Wifi strength needs to be improved.

They only had small lockers downstairs in the lobby. It was a bit far from the touristy stuff, but near a block metro. The staff knew where stuff was, but I've stayed at hostels with friendlier staff. Paris is just expensive so good luck finding a cheap hostel. There were only two bathrooms and one shower for each of the two floors in the main building so about 30 people were sharing the one shower and two bathrooms.

The bathrooms are too small and not very clean. Wi-fi only at the reception.

Was quite a walk from the centre on Paris. Reception was OK, Free WIFI and bread rolls in the morning. Getting to our room was tight and cramped. The whole building was a little run down including the room. The room was however kept clean. The communal shower room was small hot and dirty and the shower was cold, more like a broom cupboard, and no private space to get changed. Not a great experience but was bearable for just the one night.

The hostel was ok overall, just really need to improve the showers, the water was cold and you have to keep pressing a button for the water to come out. Also it would be nice if the wi-fi worked in the rooms.

Loved this place. Proper hostel, friendly staff, full facilities, great atmosphere. The free breakfast is a great plus. I'd recommend aloha to anyone wanting to budget in Paris.

The hostel was great! It says it's within walking distance but that's a bit of a stretch. It was at least a 45 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower, the louvre, Norte dame, etc. but still doable. The only problem I had was the wifi didn't work. It worked for the first day then absolutely nothing. After reading reviews from another site apparently the wifi is always out! It's my fault for not reading the reviews but they shouldn't advertise wifi when it never works!

Cheapest place I could find, and it ended up being not a bad hostel! Wifi isn't the greatest. The breakfast was pretty decent! Museli and a baguette...filling and tasted great!

The hostel is fine but not worth the money.


89%

The rooms are really clean and big. The kitchen is also really clean and the breakfast is nice. You can only use the wifi in the reception area, which is not that big of a deal. GREAT location. The walk to the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, and Notre Dame are really easy and only take 30 minutes of so, less for the tower...We barely used the metro. The only bad thing is the showers are actually ice cold. So cold that I showered once my whole stay because it was that freezing. Overall, it was great!

Please improve internet service. Also many of the staff don't seem grateful in giving touristic information. Toilets are poorly, very dirty,


89%

The few and small bathrooms can be annoying, but otherwise it is a great hostel with a friendly staff, decent breakfast, and good location. The wifi definitely needs some work though.
