    The hostel was good overall, just the guy on the reception was very stress all the time and not particularly friendly. Besides that is a good hostel

    The location is great. But it's very noisy. I could not sleep because some guys came at 2:30am drunk and kept talking and singing in the stairs. The staff could address this kind of problem.

    Staff is very friendly and helpful! Regarding the location, the area surrounding the hostel is nice but it’s far from a lot of the main sites of Paris. I don’t know how transportation from the hostel is because all transportation was closed due to riots. Regarding hostel facilities I don’t understand why there are only 2 showers for all the shared rooms of the hostel. I stayed on the 4th floor and there were only 2 showers on the second floor. That was annoying. Also the room was freezing!!!

    Location cannot be better. As for facilities, the shower was the worst (you have to push several times and wait to get warmish water, but it wasn’t the hot shower I was hoping for after a long day in cold Paris). The rest was okay except for my super loud and uneducated roommates, but that has nothing to do with the hostel itself.

    The location of this place is pretty incredible and the latin quarter is great. But I had a few issues:- The showers were cold every time I tried to use one regardless of time of day or night. This really sucked as my trip was during winter. The kitchen didn’t have much utensils eg only one knife. There’s no lounges or places to relax and socialise unless you want to sit at dining tables.
