I mean the hostel itself was fine. Wifi worked in the rooms, each bed had its own light and power outlet there. 2 out of 3 staff I interacted with were great. That one other one though... She was terribly rude. Least helpful woman on the planet. Even my roommates said the same thing! She would just point you in random directions. She clearly didn't even know what she was talking about. Her friend who seemed to come and hang out every day knew more than she did.

Super clean rooms, clean bathroom in dorms with good ratio for sharing, and good location close to the Gare du Nord. However only the surrounding blocks were safe, but the outerlying streets were not (especially around metro Barbes-Rochechuart and the area around the Gare du Nord). But that is not the hostel's fault. Reliable hostel experience. Recommended if you need to be near the Gare du Nord which has the RER B line direct to Aeroport Charles de Gaulle.

Decent stay. The breakfast was lacking- only a roll, a croissant, and coffee/tea/juice, but it's free so whatever. I don't have any complaints.

Hi, I had a wonderful stay at Vintage Hostel and can only recommend it further. Great staff! Convenient location considering the metro connections. Good facilities and supportive helpdesk round the clock. Thank you for making my stay in Paris so memorable and comfortable! Keep it going.

10 minutes from gare du Nord this is a very nice clean place. WiFi and breakfast are free. And both are very good. I would highly recommend.

Located near the Gare du Nord, which is convenient on arriving but not very convenient any time else as you need a serious trip to get anywhere good. Kitchen with all amenities, standard breakfast. En suite bathrooms seem like a better idea than they actually are: when your room mates are on a different schedule than you are you do have someone right next door turning on the shower etc while you are trying to sleep. Rooms on first floor a little noisy. Very friendly staff.

rooms are a bit smaller than the average hostel, but overall good experience.

Very nice hostel located by a couple of stations which makes it easy to travel around Paris. Have a great happy hour from 6-8. Would recommend to friends.

Staff seemed knowledgeable, breakfast was nice, continental. Bathrooms were renovated and clean, but they kept on removing my travelling partner's sheets even though he hadn't checked out.

Good location, close to Nord train station. Anni at reception is super helpful, and very friendly. Free breakfast and a later than usual check-out time.

It was very nice to stay here - the staff was incredibly helpful and lovely. The hostel itself is nice: pretty clean, full kitchen access, good breakfast, nice rooms. The shower in our bathroom was clogged, but not all of them are. Some of the blankets weren't super clean either, but most nights were warm enough that you didn't need one anyway. The wifi was awesome. I would definitely go back.

Nice place near Monmatre! Annie at reception is dead down to earth and can recommend places to eat and drink. Metro really short walk away. Rooms are small and so are the bathrooms but if your stay is a short one its not massively important. Free breakfast In the morning is great. The only thing this place lacks is a common area with a couple of sofas or something? Bit hard to meet other people apart from your dorm. But overall, fantastic place!!! 😄

We had a pretty average stay here. Location is just about the only plus, being close to the train station came in handy. The girls at reception when we checked in were very unhelpful, distracted and not pleasant at all. Breakfast wasn't anything flash either. Wouldn't recommend.

This was my first time staying in a hostel and being in Paris. It was really a great experience. I was greeted by Anni, who is always friendly and extremely helpful. The room was VERY clean, as was the common area. I met lots of great people and shared many stories. The Vintage hostel is highly recommended!

Staff was awesome and the main floor was very nice! They give you a bedsheet upon checkin so you know its clean. Lots of people there, the only real problem is that the rooms are tiny as heck.

This hostel sucks. Location it's OK. The breakfast is the worst and they didn't have coffee. My room was tiny and the bathroom was dirty, the lady who cleans only change the garbage and that's all. She took my towel and throw it away cause she say it was hanging in a bed that wasn't mine but she didn't even ask me if it was mine. There is no lockers in the room and the WiFi sucks!!! The water and the light was gone. Never come to this hostel.

The shower in our room wouldn't drain while using it. A bit annoying to have to stop mid shower and wait for the water to slowly drain so it didn't overflow onto the floor.
