The staff were rude and unhelpful when checking in and asking for help to different monuments. The showers have no hot water and the button only lasts 45 seconds before turning off the shower. Whilst the hostel was in a good location I would not recommend.
I had a very enjoyable stay here and found it easy to meet other travellers. Location was excellent! The courtyard/front room space was quite small and it was annoying we couldn't stay there after 10pm, but all in all a great hostel.
Can not sleep ... beats the door woke me up at intervals of 15 minutes ... the noise from the bar was unbearable ... until 2 o'clock in the morning there is no possibility to sleep ... does not have, even a fan to soften the noise. Complained at rcepção and told me it was anyway and could do nothing. In my room possessed a safe in each room that is good (my room was double). Again stayed in a hostel on the same street one and it was cheaper and organized. Choose another hostel ...
Good, friendly hostel in very good location for metro and Montmartre.
Great, clean hostel. Staff were kind & friendly, helpful. All facilities worked well, with fast wifi, good luggage storage, and nice breakfast. A little out of the way from the rest of the city, but I would stay there again or recommend it!
Was quite hot in the rooms which made for a difficult sleep. Got woken up at 3am by an older gentleman on the bottom bunk but that's hardly the hostel's fault. Otherwise, pretty decent.
There are so many simple things this place could do to be much better. Why, for example, are there no sinks/soap in the toilets, when the sinks are often inaccessible because people are showering? What THE HELL are the showers, its like standing in the face of a tepid hurricane? 'Breakfast' is just three different kinds of carbohydrates, actually three different kinds of wheat, which is so great when you're a allergic to gluten. So many easy fixes, just do them.
A little expensive but decent value for Paris. Very clean, decent beds, overall good stay

Good place for the money in a city as expensive as Paris. Contrary to popular belief, Montmarte is a good area so long as you are being aware. It's at a good location for the Anvers metro, and there's lots of food around. It was really really loud while I was there because of one particular group and they didn't seem terribly concerned with quieting them down, but I slept through most of it. The showers aren't great, there's no temperature control, but the temperature is moderate so it's okay.
I thought the lobby was very cozy. Only certain members of the staff had knowledge of things to do in Paris. If you decide to take a day to relax, this is not the place for you. The cleaning staff walks into your room at 11am to kick you out until 2 pm. It would be OK if it actually showed results in the cleanliness of the room.
We cancelled our reservation and I hope we didn't get charged. A confirmation was sent from you regarding the cancellation. We hope to stay with you another time soon.

NEVER AGAIN! I have booked a private room and I really HATE SOMEONE ELSE GETTING INTO MY ROOM during my stay and leaving the WINDOW WIDELY OPENED!! "Room closed from 11-2" means no one can stay in room even your stay is not ended. SERIOUSLY? I only knew the room rate do not cover 11-2 by the time a staff rudely knocked at my door and asked me to leave immediately. Then why not say it during check-in? That's stupid. Cleanliness do not come from this kind of drama when you can smell the bedding.
While the Woodstock is a little out of the centre of town it's close enough to the metros to not be too much of a hassel. It was clean, though the showers could be a bit tricky as there was only one per floor. Having to leave during the day for the cleaners was a little annoying but most of the time I was out sightseeing anyway. Overall it was a good place to stay.
Well, I really like the place, it is great for young people. The only thing that I hqve to complain is the sower: neither you cant control the temperature or how much water is falling. In my first time I was surprised for a really cold water. Also the breakfast, it is good would be nice if had alternated menus.
Overall a very comfortable place to stay. Can be quite noisy if you are a light sleeper so bring your earplugs! Showers and bathrooms are very clean, as are the rooms. It is quite a walk from the major sights but the metro is nearby. The area itself is very cozy with cafes and restaurants on every corner. A good hostel!
The staff must improve their mood. I stayed in a private room and even though they made me go out Of my room at 11:00. The breakfast is very bad but I think I would stay here again. It is not easy to find a good hostel in Paris.
Very loud at all hours, people talking, singing, coming in from the street, walking up stairs, doors slamming, bottle bins emptying, creaking bunk beds. Had to be out between 11am-2pm each day, never experienced this before. Hostel staff very friendly, great english, very helpful. Shower was like a relay, one person in, one person out from each of the 5 rooms on our floor, became tiring and annoying to wait for each day when all you want is to be out and seeing the city.

Not the best location. friendly staff though. very small rooms and only one toilet and shower per floor
Location: 10 minute walk from sacre coeur. But the surrounding area can be a little creepy at night, especially to the east. Be careful at night. When I arrived, the woman at the desk was trying her best, but didn't speak English. The owner and other desk attendants seemed to be fluent, though. The facilities felt a little grungy. Breakfast wasn't anything special. They have a cat. I didn't see anyone feed it. Personally, that bummed me out.
Paris is not a great place to stay in hostels, but this is about as good as you are going to get. I would recommend just staying in a hotel if you are visiting Paris.
