    The only thing I will say is that during the December 2020 month of covid, the hostel entrance was closed so I had to enter on the opposite side of the building through the attached hotel, apart from this it was a great hostel! Beautiful stairwell, nice room, neighborhood isn’t great but it’s located just near the train station if you need to commute.

    My stay here was wonderful! The staff was very kind and accommodating, they spoke English and French very well. The foyer is very clean and in a convenient location, just a 5 minute walk from the Gare du Nord. There were lockers in my room which I was able to use to secure my belongings, which was a nice surprise! You need a 50 euro cent piece to use the lockers, but you get the coin back when you're done so the lockers were free to use really. I highly recommend this foyer!

    I had a good stay! Everything was simple and easy. The location was great and right by the main train station Paris Gard du Nord. We were given a token for free coffee in the morning and we were able to leave our bags locked up in a room before and after checkout time, which was super convenient so we could still explore the city without our heavy gear. It may be a small detail, but I do wish the rooms had at least hand soap and a hand towel! But overall the stay was good. :)

    Their location is great. Rooms are typical. Common area is small. Not really a kitchen on site, which made the decision to leave early when France announced it was going on lockdown even easier. Received an email after leaving saying the hostel was shutting down as well, and transferring guests to another location.

    It's a nice option if you want something affordable and comfortable. Staff is really nice, specially the receptionists from South America. The lockers were too small so I had to leave my suitcase under the bed. Nothing happened but I'd have felt safer the other way. They only give you one thin blanket and the heat was off. I'd have preferred a thicker option because I was freezing. The female room had a private toilet and it was cleaned most of the time, although, there was never soap.

    The location at Gare du Nord is a good location because the Gare connects to many other train lines that run in and out of Paris. The hostel is a relatively safe five minute walk from the Gare. The staff was nice and welcoming and there is someone at reception at all hours. There's a small kitchen and lounge in the lobby. Individual rooms were rather small, but clean. Dorm bathrooms were clean upon arrival but became unclean after use by the guests; I'm not sure when they are cleaned by staff.

    t's great for a night stopover but wouldn't recommend for longer stays. Rooms have not been updated in a long time and a room for 4 people had TWO plug sockets which isn't enough in this day and age. Room was simple, two bunk beds, lockers, a chair and table and bathroom had toilet, shower and sink, NO TOWEL/PAPER TOWELS not even soap! It's good for a cheap night's sleep, great location and friendly staff! Don't expect more.

    Overall, not a bad place to stay in Paris for a good price. However, it’s not a fun hostel and it is more of a mature crowd who stays there. Also it would be nice if they offered female only dorms. As two teenage girls we were bunking with 40 year old men which was not necessary.

    Exactly the hostel you wish you didn’t stay in to save a few euros. Nothing wrong with it, but very bland. Rooms are tiny and no place to put anything. 4 bunks in a room that could take 4 bunks and nothing much else. No atmosphere, but could just be timing. Overall adequate, but that’s about it. Staff not very helpful or engaging, had to explain what I’d payed already and given at pre check in even though their colleague had written it on the paper.
