We really enjoyed our stay at Vintage Hostel! I was expecting to pay a little more being in Paris, so I thought this was a great deal. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The beds were a little hard but after a long day walking around Paris, that was all I needed. And it was air conditioned! In July, Paris is hot, and an air conditioned hostel is hard to come by. So overall I would definitely recommend it and I would definitely come back!
Nice hostel with friendly staff. The room was small. There are lookers near the reception (but not many).
Air conditioning in room - yay! Room desperately needed 'decorating' with various fittings broken or falling off. Staff very helpful except for chambermaid who walked in on me before 9am!!!
Has a good breakfast, air con in the room is was a god send after none in the previous hostel. Comfy beds, Private bathroom in the rooms. Clean and helpful staff. No mucking round with silly key deposits and sheet rental. Just easy an relaxed. Location was further out but 2 very close metros stops which can go straight to notre Dame or the Champ-élysées.
Breakfast was average and plenty if you wake up early enough. Sketchy small elevators and very small showers. I did have a private room so not sure how the rest of the bathrooms where. No Internet in room only in lobby and not very fast. Overall an average stay with a good location near metro and train station
the staff was friendly and helpful, I was treated like at home, the bedrooms are clean and comfortable, I´ve stayed in more hostels in different countries and this is the best experience in hostel I've ever had...
Pretty standard hostel. Strong points being its location, really close to the metro and Sacre coer church. A bit outdated facilities and poor breakfast.
This was a great hostel with lovely rooms and friendly staff. Very close to metro and easy to find. Would definitely stay there again!

It was very good for the price! And the location was simply excellent, very convenient. My only suggestion is that, you need to modify your internet connection to run on apply devices more comfortably.
The Wifi sucks every night. The capacity was not capable of the amount of people using wifi at all. I just don't understand. The other hostel with the same company doesn't have this problem at all. How could this hostel with better equipment and facilities have this problem and the staff have no solution?
All but one of the staff members was very rude and acted like helping anyone was a huge inconvenience to them. The wifi rarely ever worked in the lobby and you never got it in the rooms. Their suggestion was to "try it again in a few minutes" after doing nothing or to use one of their two desk tops that you had to pay to use and which were constantly in use anyway. The rooms were not as clean and the maids show up at 9:30 in the morning to clean and not wait for a response after they knock.
Great, cozy little place in Montmarte location. It was a good place to be. The building is old and as such there was some mold and peeling paint on the ceiling but still a nice place. Very close to metro station Anders which will take you anywhere you need to be within a transfer. Wifi would crawl at times though.
Location is central and nice..but you have to walk quite a bit from Gare du Nord. It is close to Metro Station Anvers! That portion is busy, and Sacre Coeur is 10 min uphill! WiFi is NON-EXISTENT, usable perhaps on tablets/laptops. Mobile Phones - S2/iPhone - forget it! Breakfast is bland - too less in quantity, croissants were dry and buns (brötchen in German) were rock-solid. My Labrador could break his teeth by digging into it! Atmosphere was very nice - good music, friendlly young crowd!
This hostel is in a great location and the communal area is clean and in good condition. Unfortunately, the rooms are not great with peeling wallpaper and frayed telephone wires. The bathroom in our room was terrible. There was a lot mould on the ceiling and we had to keep the door open to air out the smell. The man that checked us in was incredibly helpful, unfortunately the lady who I dealt with later and at checkout was not. Even stopping to text before finalising the checkout.
The hostel was in a good location, but the facilities were average at est. The bathroom adjoined to my room was falling apart, and the wifi didn't work at all in my room, and i was on the first floor. I can't imagine it worked anywhere above me. this is a good place just to have a roof over your head, nothing more.
The wifi is only available in the hostel lobby, and not in the rooms.

Good enough but the bathroom was tiny shower itty bitty. Anytime simeone showered the whole bathroom floored. There's only one plug for 3 ppl to share and barely wifi in the rooms. Even downstairs the wifi was hard to connect,
This is one of the worst hostels I've stayed in...the staff were rude, the bathroom ceiling was falling down
The "free" internet really didn't work at all--ANYWHERE. They did have two computers that were available, but they were not in secure locations to check private things. People moving on to other hostels might have to give credit information, or people might need to check their banks. Also the staff were really rude. I tried to speak French to see if it was a language thing, but no matter what language all I could the most basic one word answer. They didn't offer suggestions or help ever
This hostel was the best I stayed in in Paris. Staff really friendly and helpful. Clean and nicely decorated rooms with a friendly and quiet atmosphere and air conditioning. Loved it!
