    This hostel feels almost like a hotel, besides you’re sharing your room. I chose the 4B / ensuite option which I would do time and time again. The bathrooms were so clean and felt like a hotel experience. Staff were great too. Only downside is that it is on the east side of Paris, but buy the Paris daily metro card so it isn’t a problem

    Its more than you can see in a regular hostel; quite nice, clean, design and everything. I enjoyed it a lot and would recommend to other travellers too. Two things can be improved tho; internet which was really low connection I had to use my data most of the time and maybe a little curtain for the bed to have privacy.

    This hostel is great if you're going with your own group or prefer not to socialize. It's alittle too big to have the normal hostel vibes but it's very similar to staying in a nice hotel with everything you need. Would recommend for group travelers but not solo.

    When I got my key and went to my room there was a person in my bed who was packing her things to go to the airport, so I got my bad no clean for me. I asked the hostel to clean, but when I arrived in the room in the night I noticed that was "dirty" yet, they didn't even change the sheets or anything....for me this was awful. We had to pay for the locker, and I think this could be free.

    The hostel was very clean and hygienic. But the staff was not attentive to our needs. And even after being 1 of the top 10 roof-bars in Paris, Khyma was a disappointment as they didn’t have ingredients for several drinks on 31st night.

    Generally speaking, it is a nice hostel with the price. The security will check everyone entering the hostel to make sure only residents get in. It is like a dorm. There is a toilet and a bathroom in 8-people female room. Spacious and clean. Roomates are around the same age. Either students or young professionals. Your slept may be disturbed since everyone come back at different time but all the roomates respect each other. I will come back if needed.

    2ndposting. The hostal is fine, needs upkeep/maintenance. I had an issue with theft after asking the front desk for a nearby bistro-I had to wander around for 10 blocks when there was one across the street. Yet some punk kids came in and stole some items while I was not looking. Paris is a 3rd world country these days. The train to the airport was under construction, no ubers, only expensive cabs. If you can avoid Paris I would, the city is known for theft, and the airports are a disaster.

    Generator Paris' staff are very friendly, but as for the cleanliness I am giving you zero. Firstly we booked a 6 females only dom, when we get to the room we found some lady who has been staying there for weeks and she's coughing really bad. We asked to be changed and they gave us another room and promised it would only be ladies, but the next thing the room is filled with men. In general the hostel is dirty, no daily cleaners, bed sheets are dirty, walls are dirty. No value for money here.

    Hostel felt anonymous and the common spaces weren't not very pleasant to hang out in. No kitchen, and a no outside food policy. And despite there being an rooftop terrace advertised, it's only open for very limited hours a couple days per week. Next time, I'm going to try staying someplace else.
