    The hostel is in a good location that is fairly close (30 minutes) to the city center and train stations, which makes it easy to get around. The hostel was clean and tidy, but the atmosphere of the hostel was lacking in terms of activities and friendliness. However, that meant that it was pretty quiet and allowed for a good nights rest. The internet was quite slow and unable to connect very well. The breakfast was nice and with good portions and it was a good start to the day.

    Was shouted at by one of the workers on my first day. Also wasn't given any bedsheets to sleep on. Some members of staff were helpful and friendly, others definitely were not. Location is really good and the amenities are what you'd expect for the price.

    The hostel does the job of giving you a bed, the staff is very nice, but there is not much to add to the general value. Still it's pretty secure and reasonably close to the centre.

    I was extremely underwhelmed. Not sure why all the reviews were so good. The location is absolutely amazing, but walking in, it just feels scummy. There's trash all over the alleyway its in and the bedroom is crowded and felt sticky. Also, there was constant construction going on inside and outside the hostel, so we were awoken at 7am to sawing pipes. The service was good, but not great English. Not a great stay, and definitely not cheap for what you get. I've had much better hostel experiences.

    For one or two nights may be OK, but definitely overpriced, rooms are so small and tiny, that enough for one person only not 4 or 6. Some of the rooms in another building opposite, it is not really comfortably especially if you are tired enough. Maximum price must be limited under € 9-10 , but not that money they take as 20-25. Nice location in up town, all the palaces and a park closely on Rue Royale, not far from centre and Nord station, shops and restaurants around.

    The front doors didn’t lock, the shower was down creepy stairs and didn’t get warm, the kitchen wasn’t clean so i couldn’t use it, and the bedroom was gross and clammy.
