The place that i needed


Very good, location perfect location clean,staff is so helpfull and friendly the price is very interessing


Good!!! I meet a lot of people clean rooms clean and so cheap


The staff were very nice, but the whole place was falling apart. No free wifi, one outlet in each room with multiple people (and only a couple outlets in the lobby area), and only one key per room. The shower was disgusting, the toilet room was flooded one of the days I was there, and almost everything was broken in some way (door handles, furnishings, etc.). Location was great, right next to Gare du Lyon, with great access to the metro. Other than that, it was very hard to stay here for 4 days.


Perfect place, friendly cheap and good atmosphere


For it was a very good experience, i had a nice stay and meet a lot of people. It s clean cheap in a perfect location


Nice hostel rooms are ok and so clean and no noise, friendly staff


Please, the way for taking the bedroom key is a mess and most of the times they did not work. Each roomate should have his/her own key. Plase, hot water in the showers and it is ridicolous to pay for the wifi....


(-) The toilet and the shower were disgusting. ( ) You can buy cheap water in the lobby. ( ) Very close to the railwaystation and some shops.


Wifi too expensive (3 euros an hour) and breakfast is only sugar (from vend machines). With less than 3 euros breakfast could be much better

Ok for all nice location clean good people


Just for one day but so good a nice hostel for my return in paris next time


This hostel is the most disgusting one i have ever stayed in Europe. Following are the points that made me feel this : 1. Rude staff (a aged man who sits in the reception). 2. Disgusting breakfast (they give some coins to eat from a machine). 3. Poor facilities(no micro oven, lack of adequate space to chill out, untidiness) 4. Poor Bathroom facility (Hot water comes only for 1 min) 5. No locker facilities in rooms. 6. Unfair checkout time(check in at 3:30 pm and checkout before 11 am)


I could not stay in the hostel. When I booked I called the reception to make sure it would be OK to arrive late. The person told me it was totally fine as long as I call on the arrival day to tell them. But when I just did this, I was told my booking would be canceled from 8pm and that there was nothing they could do. Apparently a manager (near the person I had on the phone) made sure to enforce this. Basically, as far as possible from what I expect from the hostel spirit...


I bite by insects. I Thought maybe bedbug-0- Really messy, dirty, disgusting and unkindly!!! Reception helper's too rude !!!


No hot water in fact. So, its impossible to take shower. No towels for rent (always in stock)


The hostel is 1 minute walk from Gare de Lyon Metro station, very easy to find. Staff is helpful, and process guest's request pretty fast. Only 1 key per room of 4 guests, key must be returned to reception desk when you go out, so very inconvenient when re-enter. Besides, there's no electric socket in the room, you may need to go to lobby to charge your phone. Basic facility, price is a bit expensive compare to other cities, suitable for those who just want a nice place to sleep


Based on what your paying, the hostel is okey. And of course you only wnt it to go to sleep and leave your things during the day. Eveything is okey but, THE STAFF is just AWFUL! They really dont care about you. They wont help you and they wont give you any information if you have any kind of problem. With diff staff the rate of this hostel would had been completly diff.
