A great modern hostel. The rooms and bathrooms were really lovely and cleaned everyday. Amazing location, close to Gare de Nord and quite a few other metros so perfect for travelling around. The hostel wasn't very social unfortunately because there wasn't a bar and the communal area was quite boring. But again the area is lovely so lots of good bars and restaurants around.

A little out of the way, but super close to Gare du Nord. Pretty quiet, hotel-esque hostel. I would stay here again.

I liked the ensuite 4 bed room, it was worth the money. The toilet was very clean, the room was a bit small but we managed to fit 4 peoples luggage in it. The balcony was small, but very nice for 2-3 people to hang out at night. Location is very good, about 5 min walk to Gare Du Nord Metro and Train station Reception was pleasant and the breakfast croissants are marvelous

This hostel was gorgeous. The bedrooms and bathrooms had recently been redone--very modern for a "vintage" hostel. The local was fairly good--close to Moulin Rouge and Sacré-Cœur--but far from the city centre. There is an entrance to the underground not far from the hostel. Breakfast consisted of only a drink and croissant, but the updated facilities and helpful staff made my stay at Vintage Hostel most pleasurable.

Great value hostel. Everything was clean and very new. The bathroom was clean and had good shower pressure. Hadn't stayed in a hostel for a while but was glad I picked this one.

The staff were so helpful and kind. The location is perfect, 10 minute walk from Gare du Nord, 5 minute walk from Sacre Couer, right near lovely restaurants in Montmartre. Highly recommend.

Staff was pretty friendly. The actual hostel is very clean with clean bathrooms! They give you a free drink card to a near by bar where you can meet fellow hostel mates and locals. I thought the location was great! Right near bus stops and the Gare du Nord train station. It was pretty easy to get to all the sights from this location even though they aren't right near them. I'd stay here again!

Good location and rooms, Wifi worked great, good breakfast which was free. Was extremely clean and the staff was also very helpful. Would definitely recommend to stay here.

Really nice hostel facilities wise. However it's so big that it can be really hard to meet other people. Would recommend for groups or families, avoid if traveling alone.

Convenient if you are arriving/departing from Gare du Nord, and a short walk from the Pigalle neighborhood (Moulin Rouge) and the Sacre Coeur. You can get on the metro at Gare du Nord and get to most places conveniently as well. The rooms were cramped and the shower was minuscule. Some of the staff were a bit standoffish and others were extremely helpful and pleasant. Not a great atmosphere for solo travelers but the happy hour specials will save some € on alcohol

So close to gare du nord station and just a short inexpensive metro ride from all of the big attractions. The staff were very nice and there was a grocers and an ATM right around the corner... I highly recommend it! My room even had a balcony!

The rooms were quite small and there were no lockers to lock away your things. There weren't many power plugs to use and they weren't in very good spots. The rooms were very clean. The staff were really helpful with how to get around Paris and how to get to the different sights. Breakfast was excellent in the morning and there is a supermarket next door to the hostel. Its very close to train stations and there is good wifi.

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.
