Clean and well equipped hostel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Decent kitchen for self-catering. Great location very close to the city centre. Common areas could be more conducive to meeting people. Highly recommend!

We stayed in a double room, which was clean and cosy. The location was sensational and we generally had a good stay. We very much appreciated the staff very kindly fixing the mosquito problem in our room. However, the kitchen was VERY basic and not recommended for anyone wanting to cook much. If you are checking out early, be sure to take everything from the kitchen the night before, as you won't be able to access it before 8:30am (we learned this the hard way).

Very comfortable hostel with decent kitchen. Felt clean and new. However, the bunk beds were quite rickety and the top bunks could do with power points.

Good hostel in nice location. The four bed dorms are beautiful and spacious with great street views, but the larger dorms have bunks and are more crowded. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Not very many showers for the number of people but generally this wasn't a problem. My only complaint is that the kitchen was tiny, and not good for much other than tea/coffee and cereal (even the toaster was broken during my stay). Nonetheless I recommend this hostel.

Dear traveler, Thanks for the nice words and we appreciate the critics too, the toaster was broken you are right we've already replaced it with a new one. Also maybe the kitchen is not too big, but I don't really understand the complaint about the equipment of the kitchen, the guests sometimes make quite big meals here as we have a stove, an oven, microwave, basic spices, large pots, pans everything you need to cook a proper meal. Have a nice journey furthermore, Lili manager

Easily the best hostel I've ever stayed. Completely worth going out of your way for this place. Amazing atmosphere, stunning views, wonderful hiking, incredible people. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, good showers, everything kept beautifully clean. Common areas are chilled and fun, and the environment was very communal and inclusive. Wally is adorable! Most people end up extending their stay if there is room, so give yourself plenty of time here. Thanks Dan for such a fabulous week!

Fantastic hostel. Highly recommend staying here. Wonderful atmosphere, lovely people, friendly and communal environment. Amazing location. Only minor issue is that the beds were rickety and shook whenever either person on the bunks moved.

Decent hostel. Very clean bathrooms and everything nice and new. Close to centre of Paris for exploring. 4 bed dorm very cramped. Bunks caked and woke me up whenever the other person moved. Very basic brekky and always super crowded. Pathetic excuse for a kitchen in such a big hostel! Don't plan to cook here. Nice staff.

Wonderful quiet, small hostel. Very personal with lovely and accommodating staff (Eva is amazing!!). Clean and good facilities, except maybe too few bathrooms. Nice kitchen. Good location just across the bridge from the old town. Highly recommend!!

Clean and decent facilities, but large and characterless. Rooms very cramped but decent beds and good bathroom. Wifi was TERRIBLE which was by frustrating. Conveniently next to main station.

Nice hostel. Very quiet when I stayed. Good kitchen and plenty of space. Location was fine, though a bit of a walk to city centre. Bed not very comfy. Spacious rooms. Lovely staff. Recommend.

Very clean and nice. Kitchen was very small for the size of the hostel, and always messy. Rooms were a good size and very clean. Nice staff. Rooms were very hot, and it was super noisy if you opened to window - made sleep difficult. Location was fine - just a few metro stops from the centre, and the metro is very easy to use. Overall very good hostel. Definately recommend.

Lovely spot by the lake. Gorgeous views. Rather a long walk into town though, especially with heavy grocery bags. Staff were very nice, but did not seem to know much about the area or giving advice about walks etc. Noisy at night on the weekend because of the bar. Toilets were clean and showers had good pressure. Small kitchen for the size of the hostel, but barely anyone used it because of the restaurant. But i imagine it could be very crowded in busy season!

Pleasant, homely hostel. Extremely friendly, helpful staff. Close to beach and about a 10 minute walk to the main street. Comfy rooms but squeaky bunks. FABULOUS bathrooms! Clean, newish and great water pressure! I had the best showers of my trip here! Average kitchen - a good size but dark and a bit old. Overall a lovely stay :-)

Quiet and pleasant hostel in good location near botanical gardens. Beautiful old building. Friendly and helpful staff. Large well equipped kitchen. Spacious and relaxing common area. Moderately comfy wooden bunks (so they didn't squeak!) Smallish rooms not well ventilated so rather hot in summer. Only 2 female showers with terrible water pressure. Also they are downstairs which is annoying to access if your room is upstairs!
