I loved the staff, all of them were very kind and helpful. The matress in our beds were excellent. The room was clean. The kitchen would need to be a bit more furnished.

If you want to find someplace to sleep for just one night near train station, this hostel may be suitable. But if you want to do sightseeing, this hostel is not a good one as poor security of the room (no keys and door of room never closed), crowded spaces, unhelpful staffs and long distance from the centre of city.

I really liked this Hostel. We were close to the metro, the staff was great and the rooms and bathrooms were nice and clean. The only problems I had with this hostel is that our room was above a really noisy street and because it was so hot, the windows couldn't be closed. Unfortunately, while we were there there was also a shooting right outside the hostel. Obviously this was beyond the hostels control but it was extremely unnerving and it made us really wary of being out late.

The staff was wonderful and incredibly helpful for directions and telling us where to go. There is a bar in the hostel, which can make going out less likely. The only issue was with securing my bags, they had a small safe for laptops/passports and a room for bags but these were communal and easy to get mixed up or stolen. Other than that, great hostel!

This place is great! It's in a funky building with all the amenities you need. The courtyard is especially nice to hang out in with other travelers and drink the (cheap!) beer The area is a bit sketchy but it's not too far from anything!

It was in quite a dodgy part of town so it wasn't safe after dark. We had no aircon so had to sleep with our window open and the local gangs that hang around these parts kept us awake every night. Clean and decent rooms.

The staff was great, and we loved the bar and hangout area downstairs. It didn't feel very safe though, you left your keys and had to ask for them when returning. Basically you could ask for any room.

I really enjoyed my stay here, the staff were very friendly. They were able to give good directions to places to go. The room I stayed in was impeccably clean, but was near the social area which was fairly loud into the night, which would be my only complaint, and a minor one at that. A pair of earplugs would fix that in a hurry. Overall, a great stay! I would definately stay here again and recommend it to others.

Not super clean but the staff were all nice. Not the best part of town either

We enjoyed our here much. At first, upon the from St Charles , we found that the part of town it is located was sketchy, with people loitering streets. We found that its just the local culture, and that are very friendly and more social than even Parisians. The hostel is kept in great condition with many baths and room for each persons. This has everything you need in great for hopping onto the Metro lines.

Location is excellent if you travel by train. We stayed in a pretty spacious private room with toilet. In day time, it can be very noisy with the people and traffic downstairs. Since the wall is pretty thin, the bed sometimes will be shaking when cars are passing through and people banging the doors. Also, WIFI doesn't work at night in room which is a huge issue for me. The bed sheet hasn't been cleaned very thoroughly...It smells..But convenience is a definite WIN.

Hey! It is the very first time we hear that the sheets are smelly. Just so you know, the cleaning service is provided by another company. I'll contact them to let them know. Thank you for letting us know. All the best

Very clean rooms, well informed staff. Has bar and large shared spaces in the ground floor which is great for a solo traveler to meet people. Kitchen is not much but it'll work. Not to mention there's a 'fast food' place right across the street where you can get a sandwich and fries for 3 euro. Good price for what you get.
