    This is a fantastic hostel, and I have now stayed here 5 times. Very good location next to Colonel Fabien metro station, and within easy reach of the canal, the Sacre Coeur, the Gare du Nord and the centre. Staff are very helpful, and the rooms are big, spacious and clean. I have a feeling I’ll be staying again sometime…..

    Spacious clean rooms with a lot character and very well thought of beds with power outlets, space to keep one’s things, a cute light and a small but effective privacy partition. Was wonderful to come back here every night after long tiring days. Really feels like home ❤️

    Such a great hostel! Just a few things to add, I was in room 502 and our shower door was broken and the shower head was also broken. A few door handles were also hanging on for dear life. Apart from a few maintenance issues my stay was lovely. Thank you

    Pros - friendly check in staff. Easy online check in. Fair price. In a 6 bed dorm at half capacity. Beds comfortable. Two supermarkets next door. Big subway/metro close.. that links to major places without transfer. Improvements- the roof top is only open Fri/sat. No communal hangout lounge/chill area. Not as social as you would want if traveling solo. Bar okay but nothing much going on. £8/10 a pint so Paris bar prices (not cheap). The mens bathrooms need some TLC and could be cleaner.

    I stayed 2 weeks. You have to put the bead sheet on yourself which sucked. The whole floor of 10+ rooms had 1 bathroom stall (It could get quite dirty). The other stall became a storage room. They tried organizing socials like karaoke which went well but I find it hard to actually talk to people during that. The cafe was great since the meals were averagely priced and it was perfect to work in (I worked full time). Staff were nice. Wouldn’t even let me checkin 5 min early tho.

    Despite having a good location for price, they have major security issues. 7 of my friends and I took up an 8 bed dorm room so we were the only people in there. On our first night there a random man with no key broke into our room at 3 am and hostel staff didn't really care. We had to chase him out and make sure nothing was stolen ourselves.

    I’ve never been to a hostel where the staff don’t come in to clean the rooms daily (i.e. replace toilet paper, refill the soap (ours was empty for all 3 nights of my stay!) take out the trash, vacuum…) so I’m not sure if this is normal here but I was not impressed. Was also pretty shocked that it costs 6€ to rent a towel, for that price you may as well just go out and buy your own. Overall, if you’re okay with the bare minimum, this place will be fine for you, but don’t expect much.
