    I loved this hostel. It was my first time ever staying in a hostel, so I was a little worried. But when I got there, I was very pleased. They let me lock my bag away in the locker room before check-in so that I could go on a tour. The building was very modern and was super cute. I really liked how big the room I stayed in was. I stayed in a 8 bed female room. We had our own bathroom, which was very clean and functional. The staff in the restaurant wasn’t very kind, but overall I had a great stay

    Solo travelers, avoid. As every generator it’s just too big and full of groups to meet other travelers. The area is right next to the metro tho quite far up. The beds are good.

    Not my favourite. Kind of out of the way, and the metro was out of service. We weren’t aloud to bring any of our own food into the hostel to eat. No kitchen. Breakfast was okay, and the rooms were overall comfortable.

    Stayed at the generator hostel for one night and it's a nice Hotel but a very average hostel. They dont have a kitchen and all food and drinks sold were super over priced. They charge for everything including bag storage which was ridiculous. They also charge 6 euro for towel rental (NOT A DEPOSIT!) Would have been cheaper to buy one from the shops. Also not allowed to bring food into the hostel which makes it very expensive to stay here.

    The hostel is an unfortunate distance from anything in Paris and is a very dodgy area, next to a council estate and a homeless community outside. My locker, even though locked could be opened by lifting the wood at the back of the bed. There's strict rules about bringing alcohol and food into the building as they'd like you to purchase from their bars. The hostel is not set up in a way to meet people. They don't even make the beds, the sheets are left for you to make the bed yourself.

    Stayed there for 8 nights. They keep mixing up rooms and beds. I couldn't get a bottom bed (with 970 beds that should be posible) and when my friend came they put her in another room dispite asking twice to keep her in mine. Missed a common area and a kitchen where you could bring food or just hang out. Rooftop is however to die for. Area doesn't seem very safe at night (lots of drug addicts and homeless people),but metro/taxa/ubers works fine. Staff slow and not that welcoming (bar especial)

    If this is a hostel food should be allowed in or at least there should be a communal kitchen. Your cafe is overpriced, has a limited menu and isn’t open 24/7. Also, the rule that food isn’t allowed seems to only apply to certain guests as we saw guests walking in with hot food and the security saw and said nothing. My bed had bed bugs or some other insect which has given me a rash all over my body. Sheets need to be cleaned and bins need to be provided without guests having to ask and cleaned

    The worst hostel in terms of reception staff and cleanliness, the washrooms and toilets are so dirty and no adequate basins. Poor design. Also, the rooms are so noisy because it is just opposite to the main road where cars run 24*7 creating chaos. I guarantee you won’t get a peaceful night’s sleep. They charge 7.5 euros for breakfast and 6.5 for beer! Certainly the worst hostel i have ever visited. Surely a no go!
