    Overall, very good. The bar was a tad slow and the food too. In addition, the rooftop bar was not acccessible due to a birthday party. Reception was great and the facilities were decent. Easy and secure place too

    Close to the M2 blue line metro, nice local neighborhood eateries if you walk a little to the west, picturesque terrace and dining/lounge spaces, and the rooms are quiet to outside noise.

    Doesn’t have a kitchen and won’t let you bring in your own food - they check your bags when you enter. Rooftop terasse is nice, but is almost always rented out. 6€ for a towel is a lot..

    Very much a commercial hostel in vibe and the physical features (paying extra for towels, breakfast, etc). I’d highly suggest otherwise if travelling solo, good facilities though.

    Dorms are nice and clean, rooftop is great, staff is nice but doesn't really explain anything about the hostel, bathrooms are horrendous. 2 toilets, 2 showers, 1 sink for 30+ beds. 1 toilet was out of service the entire time I was there. Showers drains were clogged so you're standing in a pool of water and have about 3 minutes before the shower is over flowing. Old dirty towels left in the sink. All in all not a bad place but you DREAD using those bathrooms

    This is not a hostel for solo travelers or anyone looking for a good atmosphere/ to meet people. The area isn’t bad, close to Canal St Martin which has a lively, hipster vibe. Building is secure with swipe cards and lockers and the facilities are relatively good. When I arrived the linen on my bed wasn’t clean; it was promptly replaced but no apologies / explanation as to why this would be the case. In my (female only) dorm there was stuff absolutely everywhere. Very big groups book this place.

    The bathrooms were never cleaned for my entire stay. With wet towels in the basin for 3 days. The atmosphere is of a hotel not a hostel

    According to my experience: BAD hostel... is a typical mass and industrial hostel where local families and travelers stay (more local people) and there is a bar at the basement so dark and small, sometimes guys offer me bad thigs there, you can not buy a beer in happy hour at the roof top, only full price and also the dorms are so dark, otherwise bathrooms were not clean, location so bad: 48 min to the Eiffel tower by metro and others importants Paris' landmarks. I can't recommend this hostel.

    Would not recommend for solo travelers. Doesn’t have the best atmosphere. My favorite part was being yelled at my dormmate at two in the morning.
