There are always friendly people hanging out on our terrace or relaxing in the chillout room – we even have a world-famous Belushi's bar downstairs. With food and drink discounts, an on-site travel kiosk and free Wi-Fi throughout the building, our hostel is an ideal base for exploring the ‘City of Lights’.

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.

We have a big outdoor terrace, which is the perfect place to hang out with fellow travellers or enjoy the view over the canal. The chillout room is always buzzing too.

    Superb

    14 Jun 2019
    This was probably one of the cleanest hostels I have ever stayed in! There are several metro stations close by and it was really easy to get around. The food and drinks at the bar downstairs were all great and I really enjoyed being on the water. I never had any issues with excessive noise that other reviewers mentioned. The storage lockers under the bed are huge--I was able to fit my carry-on sized suitcase (opened for easy access) and backpack with no issues, and could have easily fit in more.

    The staff at this hostel was absolutely amazing; they were friendly at the front desk, answered questions, and generally busted their butts to help out guests. Our stay in Paris was made better by this hostel.

    Very Good

    The building looks promising but the facilities aren't quite the best. Inside it looks quite worn out and it even smells awkward. The room is only ok and the pillows/matresses aren't the best I've ever seen at a hostel. The restaurant offers some delicious food for an affordable price though. The location is good and it has good offer of public transportation options. It takes about 35-40min get to the city centre.

    Needs a kitchen for cooking! Only a microwave available. Everything was as expected for a hostel. Too big and local downstairs to easily make friends if solo travelling. Food and discounts are good! 9€ burger day is worth the money.

    The staff were mostly kind and welcoming, the reception lobby/bar is cozy and the location by the canal is nice. But the room itself was kind of dirty as well as the bathrooms. The under-bed locker was broke and I personally didn’t find the atmosphere too traveller friendly. There are nicer options at better locations for cheaper.

    The locker closures are too big for a normal padlock to close, so although there are under-bed lockers, you cannot lock them. The electricity did not work in my bunk. Upon arrival, the entire facility smelled like someone had thrown up the night before. I think perhaps I am just getting older and seeking a smaller, more intimate hostel with couches and sitting areas rather than a bar atmosphere. Staff was cool but the environment isnt really for me. I found it hard to meet people.

    I did not enjoy staying at this hostel at all. First of all, they charge you for EVERYTHING 5 Euros to storage your luggage for the day is practically highway robbery, and 2 Euros for a tiny plastic bottle of water? For real? When I checked in at night the front desk dude was not friendly at all, and then when I asked for clarification seemed p***ed at me. The 'free' breakfast was real bad, and the bathrooms weren't well kept. This was by far the worst hostel I stayed at.

    HUGE disappointment. Felt like a frat party the entire time. Reception is literally in the bar; not a welcoming environment when you have to shout over the music to ask about towels. Breakfast is also served in the bar (including milk served from Heineken containers). So many people it felt like a hotel (and the price) but with none of the benefits. The showers shut off every ~30 seconds and one of the showers only ran scalding hot water. Located ~25 minute metro ride away from the city center
