A nice hostel with one of the best locations you will find in Paris. As a girl travelling alone, I always felt safe, as there were always lots of people in the surrounding streets. There was a nice common room, however not many people went there for some reason. Breakfast was excellent for a hostel and the lady serving was very sweet (speaking french helped). The beds are clean with an extra blanket and a towel (very handy).

Great location. Nice staff. Clean. Rooms are tiny though. Not enough room for 4 people's luggage, if you're in the bottom bunk you can't sit up without hitting your head on the upper bed, no lockers in rooms, and can't open a window without moving one of the bunk beds. Also, no plugs near my bed.

Decent enough, clean enough hostel with nice enough staff, but rooms & lobby v cramped. Mildew on bedroom wall, no secure luggage storage (but tiny secure lockers in common room just big enough for tablet/camera). Free wi-fi but complex logon requirements. Free computers with internet access in lobby however. Must vacate bedrooms during daytime to allow cleaner in (room too small for guests AND cleaner!). From other reviews, sounds pretty standard for this £ bracket in Paris...

Staff were very friendly and helpful, were able to tell us the places to eat, how to get to places etc. rooms were small, and warm, but ok. Breakfast was included which was lovely. Would stay there again.

Really average.. It:s proximity to the Basilica was my favorite aspect of the Hostel. Lockers under the bed were a plus.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hostel is very close to two metro stations and has a good location. The breakfast was good: a croissant, a baguette and some cereals. Our room was small but clean and the en suite bathroom was definitely a plus. The only thing that bothered us, was that we had to move one of the beds to open the window. The room had airconditioning though and the bed could easily be moved, but it was inconvenient. For the rest we had a lovely stay at Plug Inn.

The location is very good. It seems safe during late evenings as well. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby, Sacre Coeur, Moulin Rouge. Very friendly stuff, polite and helpful. The rooms are quite small. No A/C in the room, just a fan, not enough to cool it down. The toilet and bathroom are really tiny, hard to have a bit of room. Towels are not changed daily. The breakfast is good. The kitchen area does not have A/C therefore quite hot to eat inside. Free storage for luggage after check out.

Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately all buildings in the historical area are smaller than others, but we're doing our best to optimize the space. See you soon and best regards.

Good point: friendly staff. BUT: The place is absurdly small (they use mirrors to "extend" the spaces) Old furniture and in general in bad quality Walls with dye spends Room and reception EXTREMELY hot (the bathrooms as well) There no locker in the room for your backpack (can you believe it)? The lift only fits you and your backpack (if you have claustrophobia will have to use the stairs) There no ventilation system in the building. So they will use fan to spread the hot air in your face.

Thanks for taking the time out and leaving us a review! My apologies if you found the room too hot but the average temperature in the summer here stays at 25°C that why we don't need a ventilation system. I agree that when you came it's was exceptionally very hot. We do have lockers at the recetion for free and in this historical area when they are lifts they are small.

This place was awful. Had a private three bed room as the bunk bed inside was literally crooked. My friend belted himself in to sleep on it. The bathroom smelled of awful mildew as if it hadn't been cleaned in a month. The room was dirty with hair and nail clippings (clearly nobody cleans here) it was way to expensive for what we got in return. The only plus was one nice worker downstairs, and the free breakfast. Other than that avoid this place like the plague

Security- entrance into the hostel was very secure. You were only able to enter with a key card although due to not having air conditioning the front doors were often open for a breeze all day. My room had problem with securely closing the door so we had to make sure the door was locked upon leaving. The rooms had lockers under the bunk beds although due the small rooms only 3 of the 4 lockers worked because the other locker was blocked by the other bed. Very clean and staff was nice.

The breakfast in the morning is great - delicious croissant and bread with juice and coffee. Also, the wifi works in the rooms really well, and it's located right off the metro line 2 Blanche. Using the metro is super easy and takes you everywhere you need to go.

This hostel had, by far, the best breakfast of anywhere we stayed during our trip. It's not fancy - bread, croissant, cereal, juice, coffee - but it's all really, really good. The rooms are extremely small and the beds are very creaky and uncomfortable, but everything is clean and well-maintained. It's a great spot in the Montmartre area, but if you want to explore Paris at all, you will need to become comfortable with the metro - luckily, it's very close to both Blanche and Abbesses stations.

Had a good stay here, particularly due to location of the hostel. Great area close to stations and Moulin Rouge. I recommend the Sandemans tour of the area for €12 so you get a feel for the area and hear some interesting stories too!

It's a good hostel, with friendly staff and a great breakfast. But the room for 6 people is small. They should rent the space for 4 guests instead of 6...
