Near Gare du nord and Metro station.

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.

Good hostel if you plan on being active around Paris during the day and just need a place to sleep. Great common area downstairs, helpful and friendly staff, decent free breakfast. The area gets a bit sketchy, especially at night. We were very happy to have a guy with our group of girls getting off the metro and walking back to the hostel. Other than that, felt very safe once inside.

Would definitely stay here again! Good location near Gare du Nord train station and Metro so really easy to get around. Staff were friendly and it was a relaxed environment. The room was modern and clean and I loved the croissants at breakfast!

I enjoyed my stay here. The breakfast is quite light (croissants and toast), but it wasn't bad. The rooms had a bathroom attached which was nice, but the ceiling of our bathroom leaked every time someone above us took a shower. The location was good, close to a main train/metro station and the Sacre Coeur. There is a burger place close by called Captain B which was incredible. The wifi went out our last day, but they did work really hard to get it fixed.

the room that we spent our first two nights were pretty good. Minus the fact that our shower wouldn't drain. Our third night we spent in a different room on the 6th floor which was much better because it also had a tiny bit more space to put our stuff on the floor. Also, the staff were pretty helpful. Especially anni, she helped us a lot with giving ideas as to what we should see and do

Very very small rooms, they fit u bunk beds in a closet basically. You could not fit 4 ppl between the beds and couldn't move or open luggage. Charged for towels too. Nice location easy to access center Paris .

This hostel is by far our favourite hostel we have stayed at. We loved our private double room with ensuite and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The location was great and close to the metro connecting us to the main attractions. Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone. We wish we could stay there again!!

The wifi was a little slow. Not enough outlets in the rooms. The shower was hot and had water pressure, which was fantastic. No soap in the bathrooms though. We got upgraded from the big dorm to a 4-person room so that was really nice.

This was a good hostel for my five days in Paris. It is in a great neighbourhood with lots to see, and is close to three different subway stations - very accessible from any point in the city. I had a 4 bed dorm with ensuite washroom, and it was clean and good - my only comment is that the room itself is small. With four people it was cramped and had to do a lot of maneuvering. But otherwise good. It even had plugs for each bed with a USB outlet to charge your phone.

Fantastic place.. Not a single complaint. Close to metro stations with metros to all over Paris, but hostel also in walking distance of Sacre Coeur and Moulin Rouge. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Whole hostel was bright and cheerful and had everything required for a pleasant and convenient stay

Pricey, but most places in Paris are. Very clean, good kitchen facilities, fantastic location close to the Sacre-Coeur, gare du nord station and moulin rouge. Internet access fast and reliable, friendly staff, good breakfasts and very very clean. Would recommend to anyone!

Nice enough place. Beds were comfortable but super loud when you make any movement. It's a bit outside of the main tourist attractions but it's about a 15 walk to the train station. The area that it's in seems a little sketchy and I didn't feel comfortable walking alone at night around there. The room was small and it was hard to move around if multiple people were up. The walls are super thin and I could hear the bed creaking in the room next door and people talking through the wall.

It was not first time in Paris, stay 3 nights. Safe, quiet, located good, clean, with nice parisian breakfast and self-service locker, but just a litte bit limited space in the room. The friendly and informative staffs are very impressive, especially Anni on the morning shift!!! Thanks to her, she recommended and helped me to rent bike from 'velib', which is very convenient and cheap! Definitely recommend and will come back again!

Anni was excellent when we checked in. She made us feel very welcome and we got a free upgrade (amazing!). I really enjoyed our stay and our 4 bedroom with private bathroom was excellent. Loved the free Parisian breakfast each morning and I would definitely stay there again.
