Hostel Blue Planet is literally a stone's throw away from the Gare De Lyon metro station, and from this station you can pretty much connect to everywhere. The room was ok, nothing much to say. The staff are fine. Manuel

This was the worst hostel I've ever stayed in; usually, one would anticipate that there would be a couple of things wrong with a place, but EVERYTHING was terrible about this one. The staff were rude and unhelpful, I thought all of my stuff was going to be robbed, the site promised free WiFi but you had to pay an extortionate amount for it, there was only one key per room, so if u wanted to come back late you had to knock and potentially not get back in if roommates asleep, they closed the foyer

I would only recommend this hostel because of its location; a 1 minute walk from Gare de Lyon metro. As many before me have stated, their is only one key for each room. The rooms also have NO OUTLETS, and they are very scarce in the living area as well. Their is a no drinking policy. The lobby area does not allow for any sort of community and closes at 12. One of the employees was very helpful but the three others I interacted with were rude and unhappy to be working in the servce industry.

We stayed for 2 nights. is only one shower and toilet per floor. They do not seem to be very clean at all. The shower floor was very dirty and the toilet was dirty and it smelt. There is no Kitchen to cook food in. It does not look as good as the pictures. They charge for Wi-Fi (I have travelled a lot and been to a lot of hostels and this is the first time I have ever come across being charged for Wi-Fi). The place is in a great location however but it was definitely NOT worth the money.

It is just what you expect from the lower price, dirty shower room, bathroom and bed

Staff have an attitude problem. It felt like they thought it was a massive effort to talk to us. They gave one word answers. Anyone could have come in to where we kept our suitcases. The shower on our floor didn't have hot water. We were on the forth floor and had to lug our suitcases up four steep flights because there is no lift. We would still have carried them up ourselves but if someone offered to help it would have been much appreciated. Instead the staff were disinterested. Location is ok

Positives: Cheap hostel and near Gare de Lyon. Negatives: Staff is not at service, pay for internet and use

AVOID!!! the staff are rude unhelpful and honestly just not nice people. They really should not be working in hospitality. Go anywhere else. Even if you have to pay a little extra just believe me it will be worth it. It's not just the staff who are terrible. The rooms, common areas toilets are all dirty, you get kicked out of the whole hostel for most the day for 'cleaning' so you can't even chill there. Just please go somewhere else

No lockers, purse was pickpocketed either in the hostel or just outside, bathroom had mould in it, sheets were dirty on arrival, lights cut out sometimes, you could smell the toilets from the room, the toilets were sometimes blocked and there were no sinks inside, shower was cold if showered at a peak time, very bad smell in the corridors. But staff were very helpful, they gave me clean sheets when I requested them, was great to have breakfast, windows opened wide in bedroom, room was clean.

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.

Theres no wash basin in the bathroom, Shower is terrible. There's a crazy rule about clean, cause you must to leave the hostel between 11:00 and 15:00. There's no key for all tenants, this is really disgusting, I mean 1 key for many people. Wifi it's really expensive and just in the hall.
