    Terrific location because rue Mouffetard is a joy of so many colorful street food and sit down restaurants and lively night life.

    First time staying in the Latin Quarter and we had a great time! Close to the metro, tons of restaurants and bars, and shops along the road. We found the location to be great and found there was tons to do on every side street. There’s a small grocery store next door to the hostel if you need anything which was great for grabbing food to make in the kitchen downstairs. The building was good, but the staff was great! Very friendly and helpful!! We will be back!

    The location and staff was great, the luggage hold and security lockers were safe. There were plenty of showers and bathrooms but the bathrooms were not on our floor. The shower rooms provided soap but they were not very clean. The rooms had a lot of natural light and has sheets and a blanket, but limited outlets.

    This hostel was great but there were a few downsides. The location is great, and because of that people are hanging outside bars until very late into the night. The windows don’t block noise well, so bring earplugs if you want to sleep. There are also no outlets near the beds. But the staff was friendly, the building was secure, it was clean, and the location was incredible! Close to many good restaurants and bars.

    We loved the location, situated on a great street with nice cafes, bars and shops. We walked to some main attractions like Notre Dame and the Luxembourg Gardens. The metro was also fairly close. The one main downside was that there were not enough power outlets in each room. However, we would visit again and recommend to others.

    Based on the ratings I expected a very nice hostel, but several things made my stay here not very pleasant. Firstly, the staff would smoke cigarettes directly in front of open doors causing all of the common areas to smell like cigarettes. Secondly, the lockers in the rooms were barely large enough to store a small backpack, let alone any luggage, so my belongings were unattended during the day. Thirdly, there were only three toilets for 5 floors of rooms.I would go on but I'm out of characters.

    The location was not good as mentioned on the website, there were some restaurants around, but the principal's attractions in Paris were far away. The staffs were not helpful and were not willing to make a lot to help you, everything has to be paid even the room card. There was only one power plug in the room and was a room of 6 people, so was hard to charge the devices, especially when everybody wants to do it. Facilities were not so clean and the window didn't open, the smell was not good.
