You should maybe make the sign on the door a bit bigger, cause the first night I arrived, I was very unsure if I was at the right place or not until I was let in.
It was an alright stay, but there was no flare or real relaxation... A nearby disco was playing loudly keeping me up all night and all I wanted to do there was sleep until my early morning ferry ride. The place looked a bit run down, but the room was nice enough. There are better places to go to in Calais.
I've been at Kipps a couple of times over the last three years and I loved it every time I went! The staff is absolutely amazing and the place in general is just chill. There is always something to do or people hanging about to talk to. I love Kipps and always look forward to going there for a bit. I definitely recommend this hostel!
