Its not the best hostel i ever stayed. The atmosphere is terrible, its a little dark and the bathroons are dirty. Theres no lockers in the roons and the breakfast is a coffe on the machine. Theres no facilities, a free map at tops. But the location is very good, 1min from the Gare de Lyon station and around there has supermakets, restaurants and a lot of place do eat. Theres no wifi!!!! Its not the worst thing in a world, for who wants just a place for sleep its ok for the price.

No locker for luggage. One outlet per room. Dirty linens. Staff is rude. On bathroom and one WC per whole floor really it was an unoleasant experience. My friend got checked out of her room and they had to give her another room.

Would not recommend, it was dirty, the atmosphere was awful, breakfast was equally as awful and the staff were less than great and unfriendly. Only good thing is the location to Gare de Lyon; if you want to walk to the major attractions I hope you have hiking shoes on you'll need them.

The only good thing about this hostel was the location, as it was a 3 minute walk to a Metro station.. However, the staff were not friendly when we arrived, they didn't let us know there's a luggage room for our suitcases, Also, it was horrible that there was NO free wifi available, you have to pay 3 euros for an hour of wifi and you can only access it in the "lobby". The rooms were okay, but only 1 bathroom and 1 shower for each floor. Also, very small and seemed unclean. Do NOT recommend.

The rule of being not allowed in the room from 11 am to 3.30 pm is plain weird .Having to pay for the wifi is another negative point.The hostel is just good enough for those who are looking for a place to stay at night and nothing besides that!

One key per room makes getting in and out of rooms difficult. Breakfast was appalling as it was simply 3 items from the vending machine. There is nowhere to lock up luggage. Although everyone is locked out of the hostel for 4.5hrs the cleaning done is substandard and lacking. All but the lowest shower is cold as there is only one hot water pipe which distributes to all of them. Staff were cold and uncaring.

The one room-one key concept is a pain in the ass; Especially if you're having a late night out, having to wake people up in the middle of the night. There were no bed sheets, pillow covers or towels. The toilet in my etage had no ring to sit on, and the max shower temperature couldn't have been more than around 32 degrees. There was one outlet for charging phone etc, in the whole room. There's literally no good hangout spot or atmosphere there and Wifi is'nt free. So don't expect to much.

The staff was very rude to us when we first arrived, (more so then most Parisians) the rooms itself for fine but their was only one outlet for 4 of us and it wasn't even working. There was no soap for the sink, they did not offer towels and there was only on toilet and shower per floor. Breakfast came out of a vending machine as well. It also had no free wifi anywhere. You had to pay for it. It was cheap but there probably more places with better value for your money.

Have in mind that the only good points are that the hostel is cheap (comparing to others in Paris), well located and they give you breakfast (nothing special). For budget travelers it may be worth it. But they charge 3 euros/hour to use their wifi, the toilets are not clean, there is no sink in the toilet (the sink is just in the bedroom), they have just 1 key for a shared room, and in my room which was for 3 people had just 1 socket. The staff is not very happy to answer your questions as well.

No lockers for the guests, no free wifi ( 3 euros per hour), no age restriction and the atmosphere is not so nice. Moreover, jus one bathroom per floor and the shower is really bad. The hostel close most of the day, so, if you need stay there for a couple of hours or eat something there in the afternoon, is not allowed.
