We didn't enjoy the hostel. The main reason was the poor attendance of the staff!
There was a bad smell inside the toilet all the time. The carpet on the floor was old and smelling. The rooms were separated poorly so I could easily hear my neighbour snoring and most probably my neighbour listened to my snoring all night.
The room I stayed in was pretty cold. Make sure to get an extra blanket. Pretty quite hostel, but clean and the staff are helpful.
Great bathrooms.. Not the best atmosphere.. Some female staff could be nicer !!! But i guess that's the French as a whole..
There was unstable WLan in the dormitory and 2 days none. The dormitory (full with 16 beds m/f) was used by some French-Arabes as a salon to chat even after 21.15. The door to the dormitory clatched each time when someone left or came in, so that one could not get at rest after a whole day spent in the city. The domitory is on the same level as the street and lying on my bed I could see the people walking along the hotel wall and looking through the opened window to my bed.
I thought that this hostel had a very strange security system, the reception has to buzz you in but with different staff I'm not sure how they knew if you were a guest. The reception was also on the 2nd floor but the room I was in was on the 1st and didn't have a lock or key. They also gave me a broken locker with no lock and there were a lot of people in one room so I didn't feel particularly secure about my belongings. However the staff were very friendly
It was horrible. Curfew was at 1 pm, and the dorm was open to everyone and as a result of that I had 90 euros stollen from my pocket while i slept. Atmosphere was very dull and depressing kind of like a nursery home, except people were young. Dont stay here if you want a fun hostel.
We stayed for 2 nights and the internet wouldn't work properly for the majority of that time. There was also a private party for the whole of our second day which took place in the common area, so there was no way we could use the communal computer whilst the internet was down...not ideal but otherwise a pleasant and quiet stay.
Staff didn't even have change and was not helpful at all. Room was good though. Pretty close to the center
