This is more of a hotel than hostel. There is no kitchen, but they have a full restaurant, bar, and club on the ground level and basement. The room was pretty good size and the shared bathroom was alrite.
Great place! Staff was really helpfull and gave me some nice tips.
Beautiful hostel with nice facilities. Huge lockers you can fit you whole bag in. The location is not right at the center of things but being on the canal is great, very scenic. Loved the restaurant/bar downstairs. Good deals. Only issue was with a roommate... this hostel should consider enforcing an age limit. Thanks for a great stay!
The reason as to why I chose this hostel was because of the all girl floor. That makes me feel more comfortable and willing to stay and hostels. Also the hostel had great prices which is good when traveling on a budget. The hostel was also close walking distance to the metro. The only complaint I have is that the room was too hot which made it difficult to sleep.
The dishes were dirty every morning and had dried bits on then. Staff were friendly and very helpful
The rooms were great with the very new style bunks. more privacy than most hostels. There is no kitchen area for guests, which is less than ideal. Security was good, key cards used and lockers under the beds. The hostel is setup in a way to have you dump more money than you'd hope to spend while you are there. Overall, its still good. If you are looking for a social hostel, this would be it.
The staff was really great and I appreciated the events that were organized every night. The ground floor of the hostel has a restaurant/bar and was filled with people each night I was there. It was certainly a unique and memorable hostel experience!
"You get what you pay for" so, basically nothing at this hostel. Paris is over priced and this hostel is no exception. Poor security including a regular creeper who was know to staff members and banned from the hostel seen walking on the girls level in the early hours of the morning and again at breakfast, I had to call it to their attention. Staff were rude, obnoxious and disorganised, basically a team of young 20-something's with no customer service skills and no supervision. Try elsewhere.
It a great big hostel. Ideal to go with your friends, but not that good if you are willing to meet new people.
I love to be there. the staff is great, care, nice and humorous. breakfast also great~luv it so much
This is a great hostel. The rooms where big and so were the bathrooms. The atmosphere was awesome. If you wanted to hang out and meet people the bar/restaurant was always busy but my room was quiet. It is really close to a metro station and the neighborhood was queit and clean. It over looks a canal and you can't find a better deal in Paris.
Just keep doing it the same way

It's a perfect place to meet new people. Very friendly staff. Very good location and view. Good breakfast. Toilets are average. But they charge for everything. Charging for lockers was pretty cheap! Don't rent a locker and use the one in your room instead. Otherwise, I definitely recommend it.
Hi, Good welcoming but frequent problems with registration system. We had to wait 1 hour before going to visit the city. This thing has to be improved.
Great atmosphere! Love how it is such a fun place.
A bit outside the center but with good metro connection. It's placed next to a Canal which I liked. Since they have a bar downstairs it's interesting for people who want to party. Hanging out is not very nice though if you look for a rest. The people in my dorm were some of the noisiest I've ever met, when coming home late as well while leaving in the morning. Very (very) noisy metal lockers didn't help either, bring earplugs. Not very clean. You have own plugs next to your bed (that's a plus)
Hi, Guys! It was nice at all! The only problem which was very frustrating was the WIFI Internet!I can say it is like you dont have it!! There is some problem with the phone connection to this wifi! You cannot use on Viber, Whatsupp, Tango apps...

Staff was super up and down.. first time in the city and some people seemed to be bothered by my questions.. only time they were super helpful was late at night. The hostel is just so big.. it's very commercialized and lacks intimacy and friendliness that you would receive in a smaller hostel. My bed sheets weren't changed until I got back at 3 am and had to go to the staff to ask them for new sheets. They changed it but I feel like I shouldn't have had to ask at 3 am for that.
My friend and I got to the hostel a couple hours early before check in. When we got to our rooms, my bed was not even made. I went downstairs to tell them it wasn't made and then proceeded to ask for sheets. The staff was extremely rude about the situation. I ended up getting an allergic reaction after I stayed at this place.
