It was a passable place to sleep for a last minute trip to Paris. That's about as kind as I can be. The staff are rude and accused me of being late for my booking (Got there at 6pm) which has never happened to me before. There toilet was broken. Breakfast was terrible. A vending machine of plastic-wrapped pastries when you're in a pastry-loving country is unacceptable. Coffee undrinkable. If you can't offer something edible, don't worry about a free breakfast. Don't even think about atmosphere.

Not a friendly staff but they are helpful. Our bathroom (3rd floor) was under renovation. The room was okay, but i would not stay there more than one night. I have been to several hostels in Paris and you an find way better. Also you have to pay for wifi 3€ -1hour.. Very good location owecer

It's 3 mins from gare de Lyon, so really convenient there. You could reach everything you need in 5 minutes. But no free WIFI, you have to pay 3€ for 1 hour, and you could only use it in the lobby. Anyways, acceptable price for Paris.:)

3euro for one hour wifi, even only available in the tiny lounge. Staffs are very indifferent and stairs are just wow. Yes. The location is the best, right next to main station. But what i felt is they try to charge you everything. If you want to save few penny for one night, it's okay staying here. I wouldnt stay there more than one night though:)

THE WORST PLACE I'VE STAYED! No free WiFi, the breakfast comes from a vending machine, and the room key situation is quite simply retarded. There's nothing social about this place. The only good thing is the location. For free WiFi, go across the street to the big hotel. They also have free computers. Better yet, choose a different place to stay.

This hostel was good value for money and the location was ok but it was very basic, dull and unhygienic. I find it pretty poor that you have to pay for wifi and bed sheets and there was no atmosphere so if you're looking to meet people then this isn't the place. This hostel also had very poor security and I'd say it is only suitable if you want a bed for the night.

The staffs are pretty nice, they are willing to help you with everything that u need! Cheers Justin! The common area has a weird smell and it's a bit dirty but the bathrooms are clean! The neighborhood is a bit far from the city center, but is really near to the tube and to the buses stops. It's worthwhile.

No locker, lack of toilet n shower, noisy structure (thin walls), wifi not free. I had a trouble with vending machine and ask for help. the morning guy (asked for his name but he refused to answer) literally yelled at me. "I am busy!!!!!!!". Totally crazy and sick. there are few guys at reception booth throughout a day. No one is friendly. I'm ok with that as long as they do what they need to do. The morning guy (old and bald) couldn't control his temper...seriously sick...maybe bipolar.

The hostel is closed from 11h to 15h so you cannot go in if you forgot something. WiFi is very expensive, when it should be free. They charge extra for sheets. Room smelled weird. There's only one toilet and one shower per floor. Breakfast is just a bread and a coffee, both from a vending machine. Staff are rude. There's no atmosphere. It's forbidden to drink even a beer in the social areas.

No real atmosphere, but a cheap, clean enough place to sleep. Close to a central metro station so that's convenient. The staff are friendly. Only one power outlet in the room which is pretty inconvenient.

This was the dirtiest hostel I have ever stayed in. The shower did not drain, the bathroom recced of urine, and who does not enjoy there sheets smelling as if someone has sweated on them the night before. You only get wifi in the lobby and have to pay 3 euro for an hour. Every time you leave must return the room key to the desk and if someone already has it you just don't get one. Overall it was three nights of torture.

An adequate place and nothing more. Some staff were ok but some were unfriendly. You have to rent sheets and pay for wifi which is absurd. There are no lockers and the rooms only have one key to share, so security does not seem great. The place is definitely not clean but not unliveable. There is NOT any air conditioning in the rooms, and they only have one plug, so facilities are not great. No atmosphere in the hostel. It is adequate and cheap, do-able for one night but no longer.

For this price you can not expect a lot but all basic facilities are present. Good location due to the proximity of a metro and railway station. Only one electric socket in the room.
