This hostel contains a bar and club, with discounts on drinks and what visitors assure us is 'good-value, yummy food'. Our guests have said this hostel has a 'good atmosphere downstairs and always [has] heaps of people around', 'perfect for people that want to have some fun'.

    Had the most amazing stay in Paris at this hostel. The staff were really nice, the bar/restaurant downstairs was lovely and affordable - great discounts! There was a metro nearby which made it easy to get to other places and monuments, would definitely stay here again

    The front desk staff were incredibly helpful in answering our questions and keeping us up to date about the transportation strike that was happening. The rooms and bathrooms were super clean. I loved that the beds had a curtain for added privacy and outlets and lights in each one, not to mention very comfy beds. I would most definitely come back!

    I booked a private room. Had a nice stay for 2 days. Stuff is very friendly , bathrooms and showers are clean. Lil bit far from the main attractions, but won’t be able to find anything for the same price in the city center.

    The staff was very nice. The beds were comfortable and the privacy curtains were an awesome touch. The downside is the lack of a kitchen or a place to go laundry. A good option depending on what you need.

    Very Good

    While the facilities and staff were nice the place felt like a big frat house. There’s a bar attached to the hostel and people got trashed every night. One night I was sleeping and thought I heard someone smashing glass in the front. I had issues with someone coming in at night, turning on the lights twice. I went to the front desk and they told me there was nothing they could do. No effort to try and help me out in any way. I won’t be going back.

    The room and bed was clean and comfortable. I like the curtains on the dorm beds. However the hostel had no atmosphere or community feel. It is a very generic hostel with nothing uniquely Pris about it-The lounge was often dirty and one day was booked by another group so unavailable. Breakfast is a good deal.

    The wifi never once worked in my dorm room. It could only ever connect in the downstairs shared space but half of the days I was there that space was shut down because outside parties could use it. Staff would say I could use the bar area bit every seat was taken so I would be doing an online exam and then be forced to sit outside losing internet connection. It's a shame because I really did like this hostel but internet access was nonexistent most of the time. Free wifi is false advertising.
