I mean, hot water in a shower is hardly necessary in Paris in winter. The lockers in the rooms were permanently closed, no one seemed interested in opening them so they could be used.
My pillow smelt like mice. Aside from that it was an extraordinarily uncomfortable pillow. Even though the building doesn't have a quest kitchen, it would have been nice to have a kettle and a microwave somewhere that guests could use.
A toaster in the kitchen would have been nice. The beds were so comfortable though.
My locker required several people trying to open it. I loved the free rice and pasta in the kitchen, it was also really nice to have salt and cooking oil provided.
The tv in the communal lounge doesn't do much for the atmosphere and means it's a bit squashed.
The table in the living space was often gross and grotty.
Kitchen lacked crockery.
There were no lockers in the rooms and only 12 for the entire hostel. The staff when I checked in were very nice, but clearly didn't know what they were doing. The atmosphere wasn't very nice, people staying at the hostel weren't at all social.
Really nice atmosphere. It would have been great if the bible discussions had been more discussion based. The leaders often seemed nervous which lead them to say their (often well thought out) thoughts on a topic, rather than finding out other people's thoughts and asking enough questions. It seemed like more training and support in leading bible studies could have been used. I hear 'Leading Better Bible Studies' is a really helpful book.
