while the staff could have been friendlier , the location is great as it is right near the chateau landon metro station. if you stay here, dont get a taxi as it is right near the train station metro stops and the taxi drivers overcharge like crazy here. like many hotels here, there was no air conditioning, but overall it was wonderful.
really safe and secure, close to metro station to downtown, access to computer area and outside bar. no air conditioning, but great hostel overall.
while the security to go up to your room was good, my room had no deadbolt or card reader and could be opened by anyone there even if they didnt have a room key. i didnt really feel as though my things were safe unless locked in my locker, which could not hold everything i brought. also, the hostel did not have any air conditioning and so we woke up covered in sweat every morning. this became so bad we had to move to a hotel down the street because the heat was so unbearable.
