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.

Hey Thank you for reviewing us! Great to hear you enjoyed your stay. Next time be sure to ask us where to go in the neighbourhood, Belleville has some great places to see too. The Loft Team

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!

Thank you so much for your glowing review! We pride ourselves in being a part of the burgeoning Belleville community; an art-filled and lively part of town that is little known but much enjoyed! We will be happy to host you and your friends again on your next Parisean adventure this summer when we hope to offer free concerts on our large, outdoor terrace under the Parisean sun! Until then, safe travels! -The Loft Team

The breakfast was lacking substance. Two types of cereal, a basket of croissants, and some slices of baguette was all that was available. Other than that, or stay was lovely! I would highly recommend The Loft!

I reccomend this hostel. The bedrooms are perfect, really clean and spacious. The breakfast is nice as well and the wi-fi in the bedrooms and common área is perfect. Congratulations.

Not central, but as good as cam be expected in Paris. Only possible improvements would be a power outlet for each bed and showers that stayed on rather than pushing a button every 15 seconds, but still very good overall. Loved the music playing through the hostel!

The Loft has super clean and modern rooms with beautiful bathrooms, which was a great surprise! Location may seem out of the way but Belleville is actually a really unique and cool part of Paris - however if you only have a few days it would probably be wiser to stay closer to the main attractions, although the walk to the city centre from the Hostel is really neat if you don't mind walking :) The kitchen is TINY and way too small for the amount of guests.

Hi ! Thank you for your review and the compliments to our cleaning crew! They work really hard and do a great job of assuring squeaky clean facilities to all guests. We will try to better manage the utilization of the kitchen space, as per your critique. We look forward to hosting you and your friends again on your next Parisean adventure! Until then, safe travels! -The Loft Team

There was some problems with my reservation so I had to check out on the first night and then re-check in. However the staff were very friendly and made the process very smooth. They even let me upgrade to a single room which I thought was very nice of them. Great hostel and very friendly staff!

Very good hostel, it is a little bit away from the tourist part, but it has an underground station nearby. The breakfast is good, the rooms are comfortable, and has a good hall area

The staff were really great, the beds were comfortable and bathrooms were inside each dorm. It is a little off the beaten track, but totally worth it to get away from the tourism stuff.

Overall a good hostel. Staff & other guests were very friendly. Kitchen area is the "hangout" during the day. Amenities are sparse but you are provided with hand soap (towels are extra). Heater was VERY powerful! and with windows closed turned our room into a sweat lodge. If I had a complaint, it would be nighttimes at the hostel - can get noisy/quiet time is not strictly enforced here. Guests come and go as they please-sometimes very late. Other than that, it was a nice place to stay. 4/5

I stayed here for a week and was not able to sleep a single night. This hostel became merely a place to leave my stuff while I walked the Earth as a zombie. My roommates were rude and smelly and had no consideration for when people were trying to sleep. Also, this hostel is in Belleville, hich is anything but belle. It is a disgusting version of New York City*s Chinatown. Also there were people at the hostel who were far too old to be staying there.

It was easy to walk around and find the place. Also from the hostel to the main spots. But what i do recommend one you are in Paris is to walk around as much as possible, since the city is wonderful!

Immaculate, wonderful facilities, very helpful staff. I think the big winner about this hostel was the location, though. Belleville is a brilliant little quirky area and much more authentic than the tourist trap areas closer to the big attractions. Loved the little coffee shop "Cream" right around the corner. Super close to the metro, heaps of options to buy food, groceries etc. Have finally found a hostel I am excited to be going back to in Paris!
