    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!

    My room was clean and staff were very helpful. There was an initial difficulty in getting in as the hostel was in fact closed and I didn’t know that. It’s placed in a dodgy area but once I walked around the block I found the hotel where it turned out I was booked in. Best outcome but uncomfortable start as I arrived late at night.

    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.

    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.

    I forgot to read the email so I stood in front of the hostel which is currently under construction. The hotel is used as a hostel now so the beds are rather close together when sleeping with strangers since the rooms are already small, also no room to meet people. The facilities were clean but not all towels provided were fresh. The area around gare du nord doesn’t seem very safe especially in the dark. I’d recommend this hostel if you want to stay really close to gare du nord for traveling.
