I've stayed on previous occasions and would definitely recommend this hostel. The large dorm I chose, with 3 ensuite shower/toilet/wash rooms and ample additional facilities off the corridor nearby, was the same one as last year and was clean, comfortable and quiet at night. The breakfasts are by far the best I have ever experienced (in a league of their own!) and the staff are extremely pleasant and helpful..
The external security (the monitoring of the door from/to the street) is excellent. In the room it would be much better if each of the metal storage cabinet doors had a small 'hasp & staple' added (using pop rivets, say) so that guests would be able to secure their things with a padlock. I have seen this easy modification made in other hostels, for instance in Barcelona.
Only one electrical socket in a room for 6 persons is not sufficient.
A good breakfast is included and there is a very useful guests' kitchen adjoining the lounge area. The courtyard area at the back will, no doubt, be a nice place to relax in warmer weather.
The room and ensuite shower rooms etc. were clean, comfortable and well equipped. The buffet breakfasts, with an extremely wide selection of food and drink beautifully presented, have to be experienced to be believed.
The booking confirmation said breakfast was included but there was no breakfast. The room was clean but very minimalist, with no ladders for the top beds, lockers, bedside lights or hooks on the walls. The only place to hang clothes or towels was on the bed ends but, in the absence of ladders, these ends also had to be used to access the top beds. The only sockets for charging a mobile were high on the wall just inside the door and the mobile had to hang on the charging cable.
The located is excellent, very near Colonel Fabien metro station (line 2) and not too far from the city centre. It was peaceful at night, the staff were extremely helpful and I would definitely choose to stay there again. Breakfast is not provided but there are cafes and a LIDL supermarket close by.
Very pleased with the private ensuite room, the helpfulness of the staff and the excellent location. Also, it was quiet at night (my stay was midweek, though).
An excellent atmosphere with very welcoming and helpful staff. The overnight guy tries hard to ensure, as far as is possible, that those trying to sleep are not disturbed by late-returning fellow guests.
Very nice rooms and excellent breakfasts.
The hostel features a large balcony for mealtimes and general use, rooftop patios with views over the city and other extremely well-furnished and comfortable communal areas. Very welcoming and helpful staff. A thoroughly enjoyable place to stay.
Comfortable room. Very friendly and helpful staff and excellent breakfasts.
