No complaints about our stay. We were two American females staying for two nights in Paris at the end of a 2 week tour of Europe. Upon our arrival, the receptionist on duty (I cant recall her name) was incredibly helpful, sweet, and welcoming. Breakfast in the morning was an ongoing supply of croissants, baguettes, cereal and milk plus orange juice, tea, and coffee. Room and bathroom was clean. Luggage check until check-in in the afternoon was plenty safe. Would stay again! Belleview area fine.

Im a 21 yr old travelling around Europe as I had just finished with studying abroad. Pretty decent hostel. Kinda far from the central Paris but not too far. Staff is friendly. Everything gets the job done. Downsides - the doors to the rooms loudly slam shut when you enter or leave, there's no trashcan in the room except in the bathroom. So if you want to throw something away, you have to get up walk to the bathroom and throw it away. WiFi was not great from my room. Little things matter.

The staff are great, the feel of the hostel is friendly and well managed. I would be happy to stay again, and very happy to recommend this hostel to orders.

Surprised to see negative comments on location. For me, its location was the best part of this place. Dingy old Belleville is one of the few areas of central Paris unharmed by mass tourism. You can clambering narrow, crumbling pavements where Edith Piaf busked; even see a streetlight under which she was born. It's Montmartre without tourists. It's not for everyone. Pity the hostel doesn't share this character. Maids in green uniform will clean your cups while you speak English to other Americans

Generally good, but beds were uncomfortable for taller people, location was a bit out of the way and Wi-Fi coverage was pretty poor. I would, however, compliment the staff for their jovial natures and attentive qualities. Furthermore, I would recommend the hostel to a friend.

Very friendly! The place is very clean and very nice. We were bumped up from a 6 person dorm to a 4 person free of charge. One of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. Although it was a little far from the Center and the area was a bit dodgy I would still recommend it. The hostel was very secure and the metro stations were close by! Definitely would stay here again!

The hostel is one of the best I've stayed at. It is extremely clean and has a great atmosphere. Definitely get way more than what you're paying for!! The beds were quite squeaky so it was sometimes difficult to sleep with other people in the room moving around in their beds but other than that it was terrific.

This is basically just an average place to stay in a very expensive city. As many reviews state, cleanliness is of a high standard and the courtyard area looked nice (very rainy when I stayed so didn't get to use it). Handy having a vending machine on site too. Showers could be warmer and the room was pretty chilly without the heating being on high. No key for the front door so you always have to buzz which sometimes meant a bit of a wait for staff to hear you. Noise occasionally an issue.

Overall good stay. The free breakfast was CLUTCH. The ongoing 'ns ns' music was a bit much. Rooms are small. Great kitchen for cooking and keeping food to save money. Very safe, close to two metro stops. Nice staff and atmosphere, Some pretty good socializing space too! Personal bathrooms too.

Lovely little hostel with the friendliest staff ever! Belleville is a bit out of the way, but it was easy to get anywhere by metro. Would definitely stay again.

Smoke from the courtyard woke me up every morning regardless of my windows and doors being closed. Children were meant to not be there but there were many and they were noisy in the stairwell.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Sorry you were bothered by the smoke. We do have a 24h reception to help you with anything you need and would have been glad to offer you an alternative; space permitting. We will verify the isolation on the rooms that face the courtyard to prevent this situation from occurring in the future. Usually we don’t accept children. This time we tried a pilot project to give children the opportunity to stay in Paris and visit the city with their parents.Thanks for your feedback :) The Loft

Bag check isn't very secure. Tags were falling off of bags and they let me in the bag room to put stuff away without being monitored. I could have stolen things if I were a lesser person. Other than that, it was definitely one of the nicest hostels in town. Beautiful facilities.

Thank you for staying with us we are happy to hear you liked The Loft and all we have to offer! Sorry you felt the luggage room wasn’t secure enough. However you will be happy to know we have a back up copy of all the tickets attached to the bags as well as a cameras in the room so rest assured if anyone was inclined to steal we have them on camera. Make sure to see what we are up to on our FB and Instagram sites :) Wishing you safe travels The Loft staff

Limited outlet access, bad showers with no hot water, and in a questionable neighborhood far frm the center. Pros: the people are friendly, transportation is simple, and the beds aren't bad.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hey, thanks for your feedback! Sorry to hear that you had a problem with the water, we have a 24h reception that would have helped right away if you had warned us. 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! Thank you for staying with us and be sure to follow us on Facebook so you can see our future events :) Until then, safe travels! The Loft Team

The staff were very kind. This was a really great place to make friends for those traveling alone. It was in a less touristy neighborhood which was a plus for me.

Great hostel with very kind and helpful staff! Kitchen was clean and breakfast was good but didn't have much storage for food. The rooms were great and clean (even the bathroom!). Plugs weren't very easily accessible though, only to a few beds and the lockers weren't big but were combo locks which I like. The wifi was strong in the kitchen but spotty in the bedrooms. Near two metros so you could reach the city but could'nt really walk to the center. I would definitely stay here again!
