Good location good price nice people, clean and friendly


it'd be better if we can have 1 key per person rather than 1 key per room. if short stay it's ok. clean bedrooms. but don't dare to shower in there... at least the staff can speak english unlike the rest of the service industry in france...

This is not a hostel to people who would like to have fun in Paris. Since you have to leave the place between 10am and 15pm every day to be cleaned up. So, if you are planning to go out in Paris and come back to the hostel during the night, and then staying for a lying in, think it twice as this won't happen! Furthermore, you will have to leave whole hostel as even the lunch area is prohibited to people between this times. A part from this point, the place is okay, very well located.

So good for Cleaning and staff


Nice place


Nice, It great i don t understand the bads rewiews about the hostel is good, It s clean, cheap and so friendly so perfect


This place is completely run down. It smelled horribly, the showers were clogged, and they charge for everything. They claim to offer free breakfast, which is a stale piece of bread and coffee, and they charge for wifi! The only thing this place has going for it is its location. Otherwise, you're best off searching elsewhere.


Friendly, nice and clean hostel


Good hostel, i had a nice stay, the staff is so friendly and helpfull, the rooms are clean and the price is so good in a perfect location


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
