A very homely and helpful environment, we enjoyed staying here. The staff were excellent and very welcoming, and we felt comfortable being there. There was a sense of it really being like staying in someone else's house, however, which was fine by us, but worth noting. The pricing was excellent, the facilities clean and useful, and we felt secure there. The only issue would be its location - it's quite far from the Leaning Tower and other attractions, making moving around a little bit of a trek.
This was our second hostel of the trip. The guy who looked after the hostel was really helpful and made sure we knew our way around, showed us the best places to see and offered to order pizzas for us...which we took him up on eventually! Real cool place though, with big open rooms, decent location and for a good price.
This was our first Hostel on the trip, so we had no idea what to expect. However, after leaving our bags in their handy luggage room and having an explore around Paris, we checked in, and were worried as this hostel had set the bar very high for our upcoming hostels! The room was clean, the beds good, the facilities useful, the staff brilliant, and it was right next to a tube station that could take us everywhere. The breakfast in the morning was really welcoming, and we would stay there again.
