Beautiful hostel with very nice rooms and bathrooms! We were pleasantly surprised by how clean and nice our rooms were. The rooms have lockers in them as well which was very useful. The only downside is that it's not closer to central Paris but there is a Metro station (Belleville) so close that it didn't really matter! The area the hostel is in is kind of a Chinatown and not the nicest part of town but the price and how nice this hostel was more than made up for it!

Kitchen only has a microwave. Hostel claims to have air conditioning, but doesn't. Nice big park and several supermarkets nearby.


It needs a fan. Not for people who stay out late and can't afford taxis (really scary area). Otherwise, clean and quiet


The hostel is very nice and basically you have everything you need. Rooms are very clean, the breakfast is decent and typically french, metro station is near by and there are a lot of shops around where you can buy groceries. There are lockers in the room but you need to buy padlock at the reception desk for 5EUR, so if you have one at home bring it with you and spend those 5EUR in a bar :)

The location is not far from the subway station Belleville. It's where lots of Chinese residents are, so you'll easily find Asian restaurants and stores nearby and it's often very crowded. The staff was super friendly and helpful, it's a shame that I didn't get her name to recommend. The bathroom was very clean and spacious, almost the best I've seen from a hostel so far, but you'll have to get up early to take a shower because six people have to share one. In general, it was quite a nice stay.


The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. Rooms were nice and clean. Just a bit of a hike to get to the attractions is probably the only downfall.


Please make connection to wi-fi simple: without the need to open the authorization web page before I can use it.


It is pretty close to a train station, although the train station is far from other site seeing places, so you have to take a train to go outside, and the transportation cost is not cheap. Some of the stuff there did not speak fluent English, you may just can barely communicate with some of them. But the stuff there were pretty nice. Breakfast was included, it included croissant, bread, milk,tea and orange juice. I guess they just clear the room once for two days.


Good quality hostel but alittle high price really good breakfast


Nice, clean hostel a little but far from the centre of Paris but very close to a metro stop. There is no bar unfortunately, so far you are wanting a lively atmosphere to meet people, this is not for you. It is perfect to recharge your batteries though. I booked the wrong date while booking and they told me via email it was all sorted, but then when I arrived, they told me they couldn't do anything about it. I wasn't happy.


I stayed in a private room. I could get a very good rest. The location is ok because you have metro and bus near. It is in an asian neighborhood where if you don´t want to spend much eating out you can find some cheap places.


Beds were really noisey and there wasn't really a breakfast. The staff were nice but not that helpful when it came to asking them for directions. The room and bathroom was clean but there wasn't enough locker space or the lockers were really small. Very close to the metro which was a plus.

The building was brand new and well built. The room was very clean when we got there, but didn't stay that way for long. The breakfast had just the minimum but was still ok. They gave us maps, towel and sheets, which was convenient. The staff was helpful and knew English. The hostel was quiet and not very crowded. It is located in the "chinatown", very close to a metro station. I would in general recommend it, although they should clean the rooms more frequently (and have more croissants).

Excellent location, easy to get too via metro, nice room ;) Would stay here again ;)


The location was a bit sketchy with all of the asian prostitutes hanging around but it was alright since the hostel was only about a five minute walk from the underground station! The staff were mostly all very nice and helpful too!!


The Beautiful hostel lived up to it's name & even exceeded the expectations.. It was just a BEAUTIFUL experience in the Amazing city of Romance & Lights. I would recommend this hostel to everyone. Very safe for Boys as well as Girls.. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Also very supportive to in assisting with storing the baggage with them for 2 full days while I could roam around Paris and enjoy the places.. Complimentary breakfast was also very tasty, Appreciate it.. 10/10..!!
