    Great place! The fries at the restaurant are the best I’ve ever had haha. Did a day bike rental for 15 euros and it was fun and simple. I liked the simplicity of the locker system too. Would recommend!

    Overall an excellent hostel! I will say that it’s a large hostel (and on the crowded side at that—there were quite a few large groups), so you may want to consider a smaller hostel if you’re a solo traveler (you can’t go wrong with staying here though!). Otherwise, the bar is a nice place to relax or meet new people, everything was very clean, and the beds were nice and comfortable, so it’s really an awesome place!

    I really enjoyed my stay at the hostel. At first I was in a 8 bed-room. The shower there wasn’t really clean unfortunately and the bed had some stains. Later I upgraded to a smaller room, which was more clean. But other than that I liked the hostel a lot

    I was pretty happy to see that the hostel didn't have carpet in the rooms, it made quite an impact on health and cleanliness. However, I was NOT impressed by the fact that I had to pay €6 for a used clean towel. I was quite disgusted at the notion. If I could recommend that they update their "house rules" in the room and advise that you have to pay for a used clean towel at the front desk, instead of saying you can collect clean fresh towels and linen if needed, that would be great.

    The hostel was nice but the big problem we had was that a man came into our room at midnight, we stayed in an ALL FEMALE dorm. After my friend yelled at him to get out he left and we went down to get help from the reception. At first they said there was nothing they could do and when I went down a second time they gave us new key cards and said that they would cancel the old ones. The old ones still worked and the whole ordeal took about 1,30h to get new key cards an cancel the old ones. When we were done t

    Showers could be cleaned better, had a weird smell each time someone used it. The bar and chill out area is cool but doesn’t give much socializing opportunities. No kitchen or food storage of any kind.

    No kitchen or anywhere to store your food. The sheets felt really weird like sleeping on plastic. it was more of a hotel with so many older people. Was also kinda far out from Paris so if u wanted to come home during the day to recharge you couldn’t. Showers and toilet were filthy. Staff were so lovely though :)

    I have stayed at Generator Hostels before and this time I couldn't find the same quality. The matresses are so bad, the springs of the bed hurt my back. The public toilets and showers are not clean. Some of them were broken and also smelly. Breakfast was too expensive and they give you almost nothing. Also hostel is really far away. Not worth it. I stayed at 4 bed mixed dorm non-ensuite with my partner. We both hava the same problem with our matresses, showers and toilets.
