Reason for GOOD on location was bc it was close to the metro and RER. Now, the hostel was so gross, I know is cheap but I've strayed in other hostels for €25 the night and it was extremely clean, the bathroom was like a horror movie where you know you're getting killed, I was the only person in my room and I heard my next door neighbor SNORING! You hear footsteps all night. And they had bed bugs so they changed our room. Breakfast is a joke you get 3 coins for an old croissant from a machine.

Washrooms are clean however number of washrooms are less. There should be some vegetarian breakfast. But overall, its a good experience.

only one key each room every day between 11am to 3pm u have to leave the entire building hostel because they want to clean the room even the lounge also cant stay. Usually you wont save the money if you want to online although the room are cheaper than other but the WIFI cost 3 euro per hour. The bathroom are dirty and the shower dont have enough water pressure The only good thing is the hostel near the train station

There is one bath, on shower per floor!!! It is just disgusting!!

Hostel Blue Planet had dirty bathrooms and there was only one key for each shared dorm, so you had to keep waking up to let people into your room. This isn't acceptable. The location is good (near the Gare du Lyon) but I wouldn't stay here again or recommend it.

The window for the room that I was in was directly beside a blinking neon light for the hostel, which made sleep difficult at night. Other than that, my stay was basically fine.

The cleanliness was an issue. The bathrooms and showers were always gross and there was barely any room. The whole hostel seemed very dark. Only one outlet per room is not enough. The staff was pretty nice after the initial coldness.

Staff couldn't care less about you, really rude checking in and couldn't answer any questions I had about the city. Had a really bad impact on my time in Paris. Place is pretty dirty and it's annoying with the key cards for the rooms. There are far better and cheaper places to stay in Paris. Avoid if you can!

The toilet on the second floor flooded so I told the reception then headed out. Came back used the toilet on the first floor and had water dripping from the ceiling onto me. Went to tell the guy downstairs (another fella) and he was like we know its an on going problem for us. Only one electrical powerpoint per room even if there are 4-6 beds in a room. Staff not very helpful when asking for directions or help about Paris attractions and information.

It was a good place to crash for 2 days. So close to gare de Lyon. Staff and cleanliness was good. I expected a better breakfast . Will come again.

You have to pay 3€ for hour Internet. Have no Elevator. Only warm water in first floor. Only one Electricity conection for each 4 room people... so... Is not possible to charge your phone or camera or..... something!!!! The price is not bad for to be Paris but.... I would reocmend u to expend a little more and to find a better space.... The smell in the stairs.... a little annoying some times.... You can not drink a beer inside because alcohol is not allowed even in the hall....

Hostel Blue Planet is one of the cheapest one can find in Paris but it's behind on many factors. The largest drawback is the total lack of a community feel. Travelers came and went because there is only a small lobby with uncomfortable chairs for those wishing to relax a bit (and it closes at midnight!). The "free" breakfast is just tokens for a vending machine with stale pain au chocolat. Also, one key for a room of five is just inconvenient. Cheap? Yes. Worth it? Not enough for a second trip.
