The bedroom was totally okay. The beds were comfortable. We had two bathrooms one with toilet one with a shower. This two bathrooms were ugly and not clean. Even some fungi we found at the walls. :-/


I arrived earlier than the check-in time but was allowed to leave my luggage and car at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is 10 min walking distance to two metro stations. It is within zones 1-3. The rooms were clean but the bathroom was very old and not in good condition. This was the only downside.


Internet is not free, you have to pay extra for wifi, despite internet being falsely advertised as free. The nearest place for free wifi that we could find is the McDonalds outside Ménilmontant métro station, three stations away on the metro. It takes about 15 minutes to get there. Free luggage storage when you've checked out is indeed free. Not somewhere you'll socialise with other groups/young people. The place next door seems more like that. Staff ok, not particularly friendly

We had a good stay at Ethic étapes: the 4-bed room was big and comfortable, breakfast was super-good, the hostel very colorful and with a pleasant atmosphere. The staff was kind and willing to help us with indications, maps and overall info. The location of the hostel is maybe not the best, as it is a little bit far from the centre, but still this is reachable by metro within 15 min. The experience adnt he hostel was good and I would definetly return there for my stays in Paris.


The hostel was not what we expected! Rooms are really small, old and not clean...nothing like in the pictures on the website! On the website they say they offer free parking, but that's only for the few lucky ones since there are only a few parking spots for the entire hostel. Others have to park in fron of the hotel, but he area really doesn't look safe. Quite surprising that this hostel had a scoring of 89% when we booked.

It was a very good hostel, it was near two metro stations and it was not difficult to find and what's important is that it was not far from the tourist attraction :) (easily reached by public transportation) The staff was really nice and very helpful for everything :) I will always choose it as the best choice :)
