    Staff, atmosphere and warm feeling was really very nice at this hostel. Maybe it is not the biggest hostel, but all the things that are important were there. They halped me with some moral support when I needed it...and we had good time together with other guests in the reception bar. System where you need to open different entering doors even twice with your card could be maybe a bit annoying, but it certanly makes you feel totally safe. When I come back to Paris, I will come here!

    Great location to plenty of restaurants and markets. Metro stop is not too far either. Have to ring bell every time to get into building which I didn’t mind, made the place feel safer. Facilities were clean, nothing too spectacular given price you pay.

    Staff and location were wonderful. Not very many bathroom and showers. Stayed on fourth floor and had to go to the second floor for the bathroom and shower. Great common areas

    The hostel was what was to be expected in Paris, but was affordable and centrally located. The staff was nice and I enjoyed my morning coffee and chats with the staffer behind the desk

    Great neighborhood. The hostel it self was not really suited for meeting new people. No walking tours / activities where organized despite a pub crawl but that did not run on sun- and mondays. The staff where really nice except for the night-guy who was the least helpful guy i’ve met in a while. The bathrooms etc. were not great and during my stay halve of the showers were out of order because of an rebuilding. At least is shows they are doing something about it.

    Very Good

    The Hostel staff is super friendly, they allowed me to leave bags before Check-in. The location is nice, very close to other bars and restaurants. The atmosphere is cool, lots of nice travelers and people are generally friendly. The lockers require a lock, I did not have one and one of my items was stolen by some guys that arrived into the room over night, so that was a bit of a negative. The bed is SUPER small, I could barely fit on it, if you are >1.90 consider it wisely.

    Booked an ensuite room but guess what it was only having a shower and a sink. Glad I am waist 30 only otherwise there wasn't any way I can get into that shower cabin. No bedside lamps. No bedside charging points. Staff was good though. Location was closer to where I wanted to get to.

    Very unpleasant experience as a hostel, the room smelled horrible, there was no bathroom on my floor and the manager basically treated me as an idiot for discussing a booking issue where they sent me wrong information via email.
