    Three of us had spend 4 nights there and the location is really worth what you pay. It is very well connected to the rest of the lines and so close to Bastille. Apart from that, there are alot of cheap eateries around the hostel (1 to 3 euro crepe) and full rotisserie chicken from 5 to 6 euros. It is also close to supermarkets like Franprix and a few more. Basically it was worth it and we enjoyed it thoroughly!

    I had a good stay here. My room was tucked away at the end of a hall, so it wasn’t noisy. The bed was clean and the shower was warm. The staff was quite welcoming, too. The location is the best part. There are lots of cool spots within walking distance, and the metro isn’t far either.

    Defiantly had the necessities for a stay in Paris but there was no where to really meet people outside of dorm rooms and the atmosphere didn’t really allow to make friends. Was in a very nice spot and if all you want is a decent place to sleep this would be good but from visiting other hostels and hostel bars there seems to be better options for a similar price.

    TERRIBLE! The worst hostel that I have been all my life! The room was very very very dirty. There’s no light on shower. I tried to take my money back on the first day and they told me that I would loose all my money. I definitely don’t recommend this hostel.

    So to begin, the room had visible holes as well as exposed fiber glass. With random white paint splatches on the purple walls and upside down evacuation sign, the room was not up to our expectations. On our first night our roommate, who was not a youth, was able to get into our deadlocked door to our surprise at 2 AM. We awoke to both his smell and his snore. Overall, the room was hot, the roommate was questionable, and the hostel was ok.

    Worst hostel I have ever been to! Cleaning issues, when we entered the room there was an odd smell...and on one of our blankets disgusting white fluids. Lockers very small just for the most important things and because of that we kicked out of the hostel every day for 4 hours so they can clean the rooms. Rude stuff only the cleaning/cooking ladies were very polite and sweet!

    This is the wotst hostel Ive ever seen. The guests are expected to share keys because the hostel doesnt have enough for everyone. "Just knock on your room and if no one lets you in we'll come unlock it for you" Absurd, and it's a security risk. Everything else is pretty bad too. They close 4 hours a day and there is inconsistant information about exactly when. The bathrooms also have no soap. Showers is one thing, but if no one can wash their hands in the toilets it's a problem.
