Clean and spacious rooms. Nice clean bathroom. The hostel is fairly new. Only real downfall was the atmosphere (but that's because its the end of winter and no one is around) and the stairs... trying to carry heavy luggage up those stairs is just dangerous!

Hi there! Thanks for your review. Indeed, the atmosphere changes according to who is in the hostel & we're working hard to attend to all our guests' needs. We always have weekly events & other surprises. You need to follow us on Facebook and/or Instagram to see what we are up to :) Our building was restored from an old house, but the bright side is - it helps you to stay fit during your vacation and our staff will be glad to help you if your suitcase is heavy ;) See you soon!

The room was very very cold. Even with a sweater, pants and socks overnight I woke up cold a few times. The shower also didn't stay on, and never actually got warm. I was only there one night, and in terms of convenience of location and price it was a solid stay. The breakfast in the morning is nice, but they make you leave a 5 euro deposit for towels (7 altogether because they're 2 euros each). Overall, it was a fine stay.

Over all a pretty good Hostel! Very, very clean (probably the cleanest hostel I've ever been in) and nice friendly staff. Lockers are a bit too small in the rooms but you can make do. A comment on the location: (I've read some "complaints" in the reviews about this) This hostel is literally in Chinatown. I personally loved this fact. Great Asian food within walking distance. But if this is a problem for you, then sucks, go find a different hostel.

Only thing I'd like to mention is to fix the bunk beds from squeaking for a better nights rest. 4 people moving around made for a restless night of sleep. Breakfast was yummy and fresh. Would recommend stating here, but it's quite far from town. The metro took us an hour.

It was my first hostle I have ever stayed in. It was weird at first because the neighborhood looked sketchy in the morning but once it got dark it looked awesome. Very safe place and they provide breakfast. Consisting of cereal, bread, and croissants. Those crossants were amazing. I will recommend to stay here. The rooms have lockers too. They have happy hour on drinks from 6-9.

It's to give feedback because my stay was only one night. Everthing was excellent. Staff were friendly and this may be one of the cleanest hostels I've been in. The only thing I didn't like was the constant loud(ish) music. Music is good in the common rooms etc but it's just unfortunate that the rooms are next to courtyard which has lost of speakers also, so it's very disturbing (I was pretty jet-lagged so I wanted to sleep early). Kitchen is ok but a proper stove would be sweet.

Hi there! Thanks for your precious review. We will take those suggestions on board - in fact, we have done some changes in the kitchen and we now have a brand new stove :) Check it on our Facebook page! Let our 24h reception if anything right away on your next visit, we would love to see you back ;) Safe Travels, The Loft Team

The location is just a few blocks from the Metro, and a 15 minute ride from major sights. The hostel is clean and well-kept, but they play loud music all day and into the evening. The kitchen is a hotplate, microwave, dishes, and sink. If you just want to make a simple meal, it's enough, but don't expect a full oven/stove. Breakfast is simple, but satisfactory: croissants, bread, butter, jam, coffee. The wifi works well. Overall, I had a great stay.

Hi there! Sometimes we are so into the music that we even start singing in front of everyone! That is why we need you to tell us if something is wrong (if you feel the music is loud, etc) right away and spare us embarassing moments :) Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Hope to have you back soon and be sure to follow us on Facebook so you can see our future events :) The Loft Team

We stayed a couple of weeks ago for my daughters 16th birthday trip. Party of 5, so we had a 5 bed dorm which was fantastic. Staff very helpful and a nice relaxed atmosphere about the place. Would definite stay again, would also recommend to others. I love a hotel stay but I also love the buzz of a hostel. Great stay. Thank you to the loft 😁😁😁😁

The hostel interior was really lovely and clean, the staff were relatively friendly, some more than others. the atmosphere of the hostel was really quiet, with not a lot of ability to interact socially. The kitchen/lounge area was quite small, though sufficient enough for this time of year. The location made it easy to get where you needed to go in paris, though if you don't have a lot of time (i didn't) a more central location may be better for you.

Hi! The atmosphere changes according to who is in the hostel & we're working hard to attend to all our guets's needs. We always have weekly events & surprise Happy Hours on our bar. Plus you have plenty of things to do around, just ask @ reception. For e.g. this month we'll have a carnaval parade in front of our door & you can join! How cool is that? We are not @ the center but we're well connected with bus 26 and metro 2/11, so you get an authentic experience in Paris. Hope to see you soon :)

The hostel is clean, new, good breakfast. The kitchen is small, but I didn't have any problems. The toilet is really, really small, but I think that is a problem in Paris. We had a confusion with our beds, but they solve it. It's a bit for from the attractions, but close to 2 metro stations.

The atmosphere at the hostel was terrible. They kept playing very loud techno music from breakfast till midnight even in the hallways. Breakfast time was too short (7:30-9:30) and I didn't feel the staff really wanted to direct us. Just showed us a binder with the way to go to Versailles when we asked if they could help us. I would never go back. Ever.

The Loft is great. Loved the 4 beds and en suite bathroom, especially for the price in Paris. Ok neighborhood, great food and hidden wine bars. Everyone says it's not safe up here, but I felt ok walking around and even doing my laundry down the street. The staff was very helpful and they serve good beer at the "bar." I would recommend staying here if you want to get away from the big party hostels and the touristy neighborhoods. The noodle shops here are cheap and delicious and so is the wine.

Seriously guys, get out of the 1st arrondissement and enjoy a great part of Paris! Get a real taste of Parisians and the artfulness that Paris has always stood for! Also, everything is SO MUCH CHEAPER! As for the hostel: the rooms are small, there's not much of a lounge area, and the breakfast is cramped. But, this is the only hostel I've seen in Paris that feels like a hostel should. Good community, well designed, and awesome helpful staff. I only wish I were there in summer for the courtyard!
