    Superb

    I had a wonderful stay. The staff were wonderful, particularly Pedro. He organized events for us to do in the hostel and was very helpful and informative when I asked how to get places. The location felt very secure. There is security at the entrance and the lockers in the room are HUGE which I really appreciated. The location is spot on. Close to the subway and close to lots of action.

    Staff was extremely friendly. Rooms were clean, but smelled like sweaty feets. Toilets were ok. Everything was clean and ok compared with french standards. France is in general not very clean.

    The staff are very helpful. The bathrooms smelled awful and the hallway smelled bad as a result. Men were always using the women’s toilets too. The door to my dorm room often didn’t close (an issue with the lock) so sometimes I felt like that wasn’t very safe. One person in my 12per dorm followed me to the bathroom and to my bed in the middle of the night; staff made him leave the next day. Breakfast included only if you book on their website. Lots of school kids and parties downstairs.

    Not a bad hostel for a few nights stay. Definitely recommend splurging out on a four sleeper rather than staying in the top floor six. Belushi's down on the ground floor provides a pretty sweet, well-priced menu for bar snacks and meals. Canal is quite close to a couple of the main metro lines which is handy, but Paris being a fairly large city means it is a bit of walk from a lot of your hot spots.

    Decent for the price. I booked a 12 room and was upgraded to a 6 room hostel- be nice to the staff, they are people too! Stayed for 4 nights, met some really cool people. Bathrooms could be cleaner, there was some minor flooding and the sink in my room was clogged. Cool location near the canal but is a little dodgy at night, try not to walk alone past 12am like I did. Also woke up with a couple of bug bites where the “sun don’t shine” if you get what I mean.

    The showers were all broken in the female bathroom, so all the women on the third floor had to queue and shower in the disabled cubicle. The cleaner then tried to block the WCs for ‘cleaning’ in the morning, meaning no toilets were available either. Nothing was cleaned properly. Also no USB charging facilities. Generally staff are friendly and considering this is above bar it’s not that loud in the room.

    The whole 4th floor smelled like literal s*** from the moment we got there til the moment we left...it was awful. Some of the staff were very nice but a few were very rude and didn’t seem like they cared. The beds were dirty; however, the sheets and pillows (besides seeming dirty as well) were very comfy for a hostel! I did like the bed curtains, but everything else seemed like they wanted money for you to breathe. 9/10 would not recommend!
