    We were a group of three so we stayed in a 3-bed room. The room and the bathrom are very nice and clean, and we liked the Spongebob painted on the wall. The location is perfect, very central, it takes a pleasent walk to the main attractions or a couple of minutes ride with the public transport. Gare de l'Est is also just a short walk away. The staff are extremly nice and helpful, they helped us with our luggage before and after the check in. We were really satisfied and recommend this accomodat

    Excellent location, 2 mins to Republique or Goncourt Metro stations Very clean rooms and nice bathroom with decent shower. I was in a room for 2 people and it was quite spacious for the price. Staff extremely friendly and helpful :) would come back in a private room

    Absolute Hotel was a great spot for my week solo adventuring around Paris. The value for money for having only three beds in a room with a spacious bathroom was incredible, not to mention free breakfast. And its location made it convenient to walk or take the metro to all of the major sights in Paris with little trouble. My interactions with the staff were positive and the room and bathroom were always clean. I'd recommend Absolute to anyone looking for a clean, quiet spot from which to explore.

    Loved this place, it was great value for the money. Amazing staff and service, awesome location. CONS: it would get pretty warm and there were no convenient outlets to plug in the little fan they provided. Breakfast was not worth 8euro a day and it was a very small location so it would get crowded. Shower you'd have to press the pump to get a stream of water, i get it, they want to conserve water...but it also took me 3x as long to shower.

    Great location, and quite clean/comfortable! Good, free breakfast and comfortable beds. Wifi could be a bit problematic, but overall, not bad (especially considering the price of the hostel!). Overall, great experience and would stay here if looking for a place in Paris.

    Great location, good breakfast. Well organized and properly managed place. The only improved need I see is the location for power sockets, for charging phones more conveniently.

    Very Good

    Great hostel but could be cleaner. The staff were really friendly and helpful if you needed anything. Not a party hostel, so we had to be quiet at night. I thought the location was good because it is very close to a metro station that can take you anywhere you need to go in Paris. Really enjoyed my time there.

    This hostel is just okay. I wasn’t particularly happy here, but it was a comfortable bed to stay in. There aren’t outlets near beds to charge devices, in fact there aren’t enough outlets in shared rooms for the number of people in rooms. The showers are odd. You need to “push” them every ten seconds or so for water. I fell in the washroom and injured myself quite badly due to the facilities. Location is great. Breakfast was good. Wifi didn’t work. Staff wasn’t nice.
