A very nice hostel in a great part of Paris. The place is super clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it.

It seems like the hostel thinks because it's in Paris the horrible facilities won't stop them from charging a lot.

The hostel was quite good, however there were a few problems that affected our stay. The lack of personal lockers was dissapointing, because there was very limited space to store belongings. This, combined with the small rooms made walking about a bit challenging. Additionally, having wifi that only really worked in the basement of the hostel is a drawback. The breakfast was fantastic though, and the location great. It was easy to move about the city and the neighbourhood was fun to explore.

The staff here is amazing, especially the guy (whose name I don't remember) who always knew where everything was and the best way to get there. The lobby is also nice and breakfast is free, though nothing fancy. There is only wifi in the common areas, which sucks. The rest of the hostel is not so great. It definitely doesn't feel as clean as the other two hostels that I've stayed at, but it's not absolutely horrible. There was a bathroom in my room but friends had to use the 3? communal showers.

Excellent and enthusiastic staff made this a very rewarding 5-day stay! Had many positive connections with other hostel residents.

EXCELENT! Location is perfect, Quartier Latin, close to pubs, restaurants, train stations, etc. Rooms are comfortable and clean, and the lobby and the dining room downstairs provide a fairly good atmosphere. Highly recommended, specially being probably the most accesible dorm in Paris.

Hostel has lockers. Location is near to bars and restaurants. Depending who works, in general, staff is ok. Bathrooms are not clean. Rooms and beds are clean. Overall comparing service with price: recommendation.

Owner Comment (Hide)
dear guest we hope you had a nice stay with us. Cleanliness is done every day, in the shared showers and toilets, or in the ensuite bathrooms, once a day between 11 am and 4 pm. Of course, everyone who uses the bath and toilets all day long has to be respectful with cleanliness and if any request, staff is still at your disposal. We hope to welcome you one more time soon !

The location is great - you can walk to Notre Dame in about 15 Minutes and have a subway station close by. The staff is most helpful and very friendly and the breakfast buffet was much better than I would have expected, given the really good price. That said, being an inexpensive hostel the room have certain drawbacks you should be clear about: Toilets are only on the 2nd (of 4) floors and the showers' (1st & 2nd floor)temperature cannot be regulated. Still: Value for money is excellent.

Everything was perfect but it's quite difficult to carry the suitcases due to the lack of elevator!

Owner Comment (Hide)
dear guest we hope you enjoyed your stay with us. In fact, our hostel is a typical "parisian building" and most of little hostels in Paris do not have elevator. However, we still have a luggage room donwstairs for more comfort and easy to use if any problem with big suitcases, do not hesitate to ask for help ! see you soon with us !

Booking was schizophrenic - one person would email back that there was no room for our group. The same day, another email would arrive from another employee, stating they were happy to host our group. This happened three times through email, so I called The SAME situation happened over the phone! One employee was consistently irate at us, while a different employee was "young and happy". Bizarre to say the least. We were left wondering if our reservation would even be honored upon arrival.

Dear guest The answer depends on the status of your request, because if you ask for a group accommodation, we cannot deal with your request by phone, you need to fill a form and then we answer by email. However, if your group booking was already booked on internet, of course, the booking is confirmed with the deposit you paid, and you do not have to make a new request. I suppose the request was not well understood as you are a group. However we hope you had a good stay with us!

I loved the location and the staff. Only issues, there were bed bugs and mold in our room. Other than that it wasn't bad. The wifi only worked in the lobby, it would have been nice in the rooms. Also, more than two bathrooms for everyone would be nice.

Dear guest thanks for your review we take into account. In fact, we think it is a good time to meet roommates when you are into the dorms at night, and not connected with wifi, however it is still possible to use free wifi in the lobby whenever you want. Moreover, we have solved the problem that occurred with beds, even if, unfortunately, it could happen. See you soon in Paris ! The Manager

I was a bit worried about the cleanliness after reading some reviews before I stayed but I have to say that it was quite acceptable. The showers we're clean but smelt a bit due to poor ventalation. On the whole a good place

Everything was great with my stay. Only problem was that my room was right next to the stairs and I could hear every person who was coming or going. This hostel is a great place to stay if you are young and looking for a fun and friendly party atmosphere during your stay.

Rooms are very small and crowded with no room for luggage. Hostel was also quite loud. Staff could have been more helpful and friendly.

Dear guest thanks for your review. We suggest you to enjoy for a next stay a 2 bedded-dorm for more space or comfort. Or the 6 bedded-dorms have also more space. Lockers are at your disposal at reception desk for free, and free luggage room also to keep big bags if needed. Let us know if you come back ! The reception team.
