    A very nice most inexpensive hostel in the heart of Paris. No frills metal bunk beds but perfectly clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and friendly. What’s not to like?!

    Single room was absolutely fine for the price paid. The door locked, quilt was warm and the lights all worked. Unsure if other bad reviews have come from people in shared dorms, but the single occupancy room absolutely did the job.

    I stayed in a 2 bed room with a bunch bed and it was fine. I checked in at 11pm and the person at the front desk was nice. It is in a cute area that is about a 45 minute walk from Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris. There is a metro station very close that takes you anywhere in the city. There is no soap in the toilets or in the rooms, which was confusing. The only big issue was water on the floor which seemed to come from the sink. For the price, it was nice and I would recommend.

    Poor Breakfast, Poor Security - Anyone could walk into the Hostel. Also says no Over 30s and there were lots of people older than 30, understandable if accompanying school children, but many weren't. No extra facilities I.e. pub crawls, movie nights, walking tours etc. Price very good for what you actually get when compared to other hostels in Paris. Lovation incredible. Overall, okay hostel. Dusappointments but some positives. Would only book for a decent place to stay, not good for socializing

    Malisimo. Te obligan a salir de la habitación de 11am a 3pm, te hacen bajar el equipaje completo durante ese tiempo, prácticamente no hay lugar para estar durante ese tiempo, el baño compartido es compartido por muuuchos, la ducha y lavamanos esta dentro de la habitación tipo celda de carcel; lo que hace que si compartis con un desconocido, te tengas que bañar al lado del flaco que esta acostado, o viceversa. Un desastre. La limpieza es buena salvo el baño compartido

    - The rooms are 'cleaned' from 11-15hours when you are locked-out of the rooms, but when you return, the showers are still dirty and the rooms still look like a run-down motel. Sure the beds are made and floors probably cleaned, but the place is very disgusting. The showers are very dirty/old and have not been maintained at all - The beds are cheap metallic beds, so any movement at all is amplified and audible - Staff are unresponsive as it is a one person job (for 2 hostels)

    I wasn't expecting much here and was just looking for a place close to Gare de Lyon for the night as a pit stop. That being said it was still the worst hostel I've ever stayed at. Sketchy looking from the outside and didn't get much better inside. Room was 2 beds but still cramped. One outlet and safe for the room. Dirty toilet in the hallway. Printer was busted so couldn't get a receipt. Cheap sheets and linens. Would not stay again. Book at your own risk.

    I was there during a heat wave affecting most of Europe , there was not A/C in the room. Besides for a private room you still have to share the toilet.

    There was no bathroom on the entire floor, there was no soap provided in all the bathrooms in the entire hostel, there is a lock out from 11 am to 3 pm in which you cannot access your room, the WiFi was slower than 2G/EDGE, the WiFi had to be logged onto with a very long password every hour, you have to return the key every time you walk out, breakfast was one small baguette and one madeleine, the luggage room is very unsafe and in a moldy basement, and the staff was very apathetic at best.
