One staff member (the bald one) is exemplary of hospitality is dead, I travelled in Europe extensively for the last 5 years, never met someone like this. Not only he made comment about us audibly, I was told rudely I can't use internet which already costs extra (and is only available at the reception) past 10pm, no luggage storage though it's stated in the facility part- all you'd be told is to go to an "internet laundry" they're affiliated to. Our room was old on G/F and facing a street market!
The hotel staff was helpful and accommodating, which makes a big difference to the place. It's located off the centre but we don't find transportation to be a problem as going to the central train station to transfer to metro is easy. One point to note is that wifi didn't work properly except on the G/F. I'd recommend this hotel to others to avoid the overpriced accommodation in central Paris where you have to stay in a room with a few other travellers and paying almost the same price!
The location was excellent and can't be better. The room was okay for the price. But reception staff couldn't speak much English hence it could be a small problem. The only thing is that the place is completely not soundproof, hence the door and talking sounds at the reception will keep you awake past midnight. Our stay was still reasonably pleasant.
The hotel location can't be better - it's incredibly central with lots of shops, restaurants and tourist sites around. Our stay was pleasant but one minor point is that though the staff members are nice, they can't speak much English, hence communication could be a problem. The other point was about the place being not soundproof at all - the noise from the reception kept me awake past midnight during our stay.
Though it's near to the port, you have to walk uphill to reach to the hotel and it might be a problem if you have big suitcases. The room was okay, but we later found out that it's extremely close to the airport and we heard the flights landing off all the time, which caused real problems to sleep. The room was air conditioned though.
The location is really good and it is by the bus station. Facilities were really basic and wifi can only work on the ground floor. But staff was very nice and helpful. One point to note is that it is not that soundproof hence it might affect the guest's sleep. Our stay was quite pleasant overall.
The location of this hotel is excellent, incredibly close to transportation, tourist attractions, restaurants and supermarkets. However, you can basically hear everything next door, from the floor above and outside your room clearly, and especially if you're staying in a single room, it will be on the G/F hence your sleep will be largely disrupted by the other guests going in/out. Wifi does work very well though, the staff is helpful and nice.
I hada very pleasant stay at this B&B at the end of Dec 2012. The room was very nice and clean, the location was perfect, and the B&B owner and family were incredibly kind. I lived on a separate floor from the main B&B flats but it worked out fine, one minor thing is the walls are thin and hence could be a bit noisy at times, however it'll be absolutely perfect! Thank you!
We had an absolutely wonderful stay for our Christmas holiday at this apartment and we couldn't thank the staff more for being so helpful and kind. We're given a very big apartment with separate kitchen/ lounge and a nice double bedroom. The facilities were excellent and the whole place was very decent and clean. The location could be a bit off centre, but if you take a bus, door to door to the New Republic Square is only around 10 mins. I would definitely recommend this apartment/ hostel!
We're staying at the en-suite double-bed room which is not attached to the main hostel hence in terms of character and atmosphere, it's not as good as the other rooms. The apartment could be a bit confusing to locate for the first time, however it is right opposite to the Shilin Market which is a big bonus! Very good location. The owner Kevin is incredibly kind and helpful, very responsive to our needs and questions. It's definitely a good place to stay.
We enjoyed our state thoroughly, the staff was exceptionally helpful and the location just can't be better located. I would recommend this hostel to others for sure, especially for those who look for quieter stay and value for money.
The location is really good (close to the two metro stations, shopping malls and Palace of Culture) and the staff is exceptionally helpful. I really appreciate their kindness. One point to make it to perfection is that it can be noisy at night to catch sleep, both from the noises from the hostel's bar/ music and also from the outside of the building (there were constructions outside at night!?) Other than that I am completely satisfied with my stay here.

It was located at a good location, just a few minutes away from the train station and there are many shops (pizza, gelato, grocery, bar, bank, etc) close by. We were given a 3-bed apartment with our own toilet and shower. The only bad thing is the room we were given is right above a bar which makes it very difficult to sleep. This hostel has rooms across different buildings so it will depend on your luck for which one it will locate to you.
