A bit far from the center of Paris, but easily reached by the metro. Bathrooms could have been cleaner and the lack of screens on the window meant that their were plenty of mosquitoes to keep you company.

This is run by people that have never stayed at a hostel before. Honestly who turns off hot water to reduce noise? How about turning off the gas in the kitchen during the day? Excessive rules and signs kills all atmosphere/fun in this hostel. The redeeming quality is the location, but I could only recommend it for a night.

Hi Mike, from the States. Wow! Talk about a bad review - particularly from a bloke who was given (for FREE, without you having to lift a finger) an upgrade into a private twin room, when what you'd booked was a couple of beds in a shared dorm. *Sheesh...* Anyway, while you'll never get to see this painted in big, bold letters, EVERYTHING we do here, we do for really good reasons - but very little of what goes on "behind the scenes" is apparent to our guests. (Which I guess is why it's called "behind the scenes"). We put in place each one of those (excessive? Seriously?) rules you mention to try our best to ensure the peace and quiet of the, oh... about 95% of our guests who want to enjoy some peace and quiet when they stay. (Funnily enough Michael, that type of guests does exist: in spades.) And while I can never be certain what your expectations were when you booked my hostel (perhaps a "party" hostel full of drunken backpackers boozing up and screaming around the place until 4.00am? Dude, we're not a central city hostel! We are a remote, great little country hostel located in the middle of a coastal National Park... as even the simplest of online research would uncover) what we do we get right far, far more times that getting it wrong. Before I sign off, before I took on the running of this hostel in early 2010, I criss-crossed the globe for 15 years. So, you could say I've kinda' grabbed a reasonable handle on what works, and what don't... and what most people want in a hostel (which may surprise you), and what they don't really want to have to put up with, over that time.

A nice hostel in a good location in Moscow. It was really empty while I was there and not too much of the 'hostel' vibe. Other than that it was clean and well run. I would recomend a key or someway to get in without having to call the front desk everytime to enter the building.
