    My second time here and it's exactly as it says, this hostel is for the young and happy! Lots of cramped stairs so be prepared to carry, but lots of toilets and exceptionally clean. My four-person room had an ensuite shower and sink and staff were very friendly. Cute kitchen set up in the basement with lots of little reading nooks.

    This hostel was really cosy, clean and comfortable but not very social. I wouldn’t recommend it if your main priority is meeting other travellers, as people tended to keep to themselves. That being said, the staff were really friendly and helpful, this hostel is in a really convenient location in the middle of the charming Latin quarter and is great value for money for Paris.

    This hostel was located in a very safe part of Paris but that means it is a slight walk from some of the big attractions. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. However the kitchen downstairs smelled really bad and the smell of smoke from outside would often waft down into the basement making it hard to sit down there. Overall though it was a great hostel.

    Fantastic location. Old cramped building. No lifts so I had to drag my bag to the 2nd floor. Got to the dorm in the afternoon and the bathroom was dirty. Beds were comfy and I slept ok. No plug socket for top bunk. Kitchen basic and dirty when I arrived. Social spaces are nice - I was only here one night but it would be easy to meet people. Luggage storage is ticketed but when I collected my bag the staff member just gave me the swipe card and let me serve myself - I could have taken anything!

    The price of the hostel was really all for location. The staff were friendly but the hostel itself was not worth the price. The rooms were cramped and did not have enough lockers for everyone in the room. The hostel itself was not super clean, especially the common areas. Kitchen was small and dirty, and there were times when people were smoking in the hostel despite the no smoking rules. The showers were a bit of a disaster, water leaked everywhere. I’m sure you can find better value elsewhere

    This was the worst hostel I stayed at out of 15 on my Europe trip. The staff were polite and nice, this is no reflection on them. Only one bathroom is available (that I saw) on the 2nd floor, with 2 toilet stalls and 2 shower stalls, not very clean either. Dorms didn’t even have a light and outlet available per bed, not to mention no AC, window open all night. Couldn’t sit up on my top bunk or my head would hit the ceiling. No thought of comfort-Checked out after 1 night out of 3 booked nights.
