Location

Travelling around Paris is easy from our hostel. We're on the Rue de Crimée, just three stops from the Gare du Nord train station and a 5-minute stroll from the Crimée Métro stop. If you're heading to a gig at Zenith Concert Hall, you can walk it in 15 minutes. The canal-front promenade is right outside our front door; ideal for getting fashion tips from those famously chic Parisians or for joggers taking a scenic route.

Our mixed dorms are airy, modern and clean, and each bed has a privacy curtain to use whether you're sleeping, changing or perfecting your Downward Dog. There's a reading light and two power sockets by each bunk, so you can charge your devices while you snooze. The under-bed lockers are handy for keeping your valuables safe while you're out and about, and the in-room Wi-Fi means you can update your friends on last night without even getting out of bed.

    The more I saw of this hostel the more impressed I was. The staff work hard, are obliging and clean thoroughly - I even saw one chap cleaning both sides of a toilet seat - good on him. Plenty of space & sufficient hooks in the powerful wet shower - perfect. The breakfast is excellent and I was well happy with fresh crusty baguette, which made all the difference for me. I appreciated there being a bar. I very much enjoyed my stay here. Thanks.

    Fun party place. First hostel where I actually met people with whom I had cool convos. Although if you're a young girl traveling alone beware of the area you have to go through to get to this hostel. Not the safest. I recommend renting Velib bikes so you can just zip right in to the Velib station that's literally right next door to the hostel.

    Fabulous

    28 Jan 2020
    overall had a good stay but the bathrooms always smelled horrendous. There wasn’t a day that I didn’t have to hold my breath while I was in there. Also the lockers were very loud, to the point where some people just didn’t use them as it was extremely awkward to access their stuff. The bed was very comfortable but hard to sleep since it’s very loud outside from the bar downstairs and an ambulance station across the street.

    Book on their site directly if you want to avoid paying unnessarily for breakfast which is free only if you do so. Also the rooms do generally come with large lockers to safely store a bag however for some reason my particular bunk did not have these and instead I was given a very small locker to the side that would never be able to fit a backpacking pack meaning I had to leave a decent amount of my things out so not particularly safe.

    I paid 14EUR/night, which is very cheap! When you just need to find a place to sleep, it’s bether then nothing! The construction is a complete mess, I have a heard that it is a new building but it is a super-fail. Windows are opening just a few centimeters for a 8bed-room, the ventilation is making noise, the walls are not absorbing noise and the biggest fail are the lockers, which you cannot pull out under the bed when a full-grown person is lying in the bed. It’s for party-teens only!

    IT IS DISGUSTING!! The whole place needs to be blasted with detol, bleech and everything else that kills germs and odors. They have regular cleaners but they must use the same buckets of dirty water for the week... I've stayed in a fair few hostels around the world, paying different prices, and this is by far the WORST. Location was in a dodgy part of town. If you're a girl, scary to walk at dusk. Communal area is not communal - didn't Foster much chatting, smelled and was always dirty.
