The hostel was in a really great location. Easy to walk downtown and a swimming pool next door! It was really clean and well labeled. It was easy to get in and around.

The bedroom doors don't lock which made me a little uncomfortable. There's lockers in the room but everything didn't fit. And there's no front door that locks to the hostel itself, and you don't have to show anything at reception. Nice breakfast and facilities though.

My entire room was woken up at 3 a.m. and forced to show our receipts. Apparently someone had been given the wrong room key or they'd double booked a bed. There has to be a better way of dealing with that kind of situation. No lockers in the bedroom and you have to pay for them :(

I would really have appreciated lockers in the rooms. Kitchen was tiny but fully stocked. Love that it's open 24/7/

Thankful the staff gave us a key card to use before we were able to check in. The kitchen should have a free section, so that food found in the fridge that has been left can be used by other patrons. Nicely located. Good breakfast.

Please don't advertise a kitchen when it's just a toaster, microwave and fridge. And please sweep under the beds. Other than that it was a nice place, really cool decor.

It was kind of awkward staying for only two nights as everyone else seemed to be long term guests. It's ran more as a boarding house for foreigners to work in London. Breakfast and dinners were great though :)

Loved the breakfast, a lot of selection. I would recommend a 'Free Food' section in the kitchen for left behind food so that it doesn't go bad and get thrown out. Great book exchange, lots of options.

There were no signs at breakfast saying there was a limit on how much of anything that could be taken. I went to fill a personal mug and got told it wasn't allowed so I stopped and went back to my table. My friend went to get some tea and the receptionist told her "You're done, go wash your dishes". At her confusion, he stated that since I had already taken 2Liters of tea we were not allowed anything else from breakfast. I tipped my mug upside down to prove it was empty but he said no more.

Really sad the kitchen closes since after dancing at the bar all night we were hungry. Could walk downtown from here, also right by a metro. Good breakfast selection but it wasn't kept very full.

We arrived after reception closed so another guest let us in. We called the emergency number that was listed and got an employee. We explained the situation but before he could offer a solution the call was disconnected. We didn't have enough money to call back. He never showed up so we just slept on the couches in the common room. No one woke us up and I don't think they even noticed or knew we did that. Good breakfast and nice rooms. There was a loud day camp there and we weren't warned.

We enjoyed our stay there except for the staff at breakfast. He didn't make any attempts to acknowledge the guests. It was really far from the city but a decent price.

Hello, thanks for the comment. Our continental breakfast is included in the price, and is enough to start the day, and the staff is always receptive to all the guests... We are located in Montmartre, a nice neighborhood to visit in Paris, 20mins from the city center by metro. Regards,

The hostel workers did not speak any English at all which made everything very difficult. Otherwise, nice and clean room and bathroom. It didn't really have a hostel atmosphere.

This is our favourite hostel so far. Very comfortable beds, rooms had balconies, lots of common space, huge kitchen and very friendly staff. Breakfast was standard for a hostel; tea, coffee, bread, jam, butter and cereal. It was right near everything and offered free walking tours.

We spent our first three nights in a separate building which was fantastic. We had an ensuite washroom and control over the air conditioning. Our fourth night was in the main building and it was really hot with no temperature control of the shower. Breakfast was great though, not a lot of variety but plenty of what they did have. The staff were awesome, as were the walking tours (Philippe was hilarious). Go on the pub crawl!

The door to the room we were staying in didn't shut very well. The other people staying in the room left it open all the time. We also had no screens on our windows and we were ground level and they were always open. You had to pay for the lockers so it wasn't a very secure place. Getting there was really easy though because they had the entire way signed. The atmosphere was nice and we really enjoyed the pool. Breakfast was ok, good variety but it wasn't self-serve.

We loved the size of the kitchen but they could use another fridge. We enjoyed the free food section but it would be nice if they had that in the fridge as well. The bathrooms were really nice and big. The washrooms and showers were separate but they were so big and clean. We loved that they gave us one key card and it opened the outside door, our room and our locker.
