For a central hostel this did the job. Really easy access to the metro or a short walk to areas like the Bastille and Le Marais. Room was clean and the beds were comfortable but there was some rather dingy lighting. We had a room of two which was good as my things felt quite secure and there was even... More

When making a decision on accommodations, it is all about the tradeoffs and your level of comfort and security. After reading the reviews, I have come to decide that the tradeoffs are not worth it for this budget traveler and his wife. There is a basic level of care and comfort that I believe should be offered no matter the... More

I've been to this hostel in November forend four nights and it was definitely the worst experience ever. Let's start by saying that during the five nights I had to change room three (!) times. My room was on the ground floor on an open air corridor, if I had wanted to use the toilet during the night I would... More

Do you like to be treated badly ?? Do you like to be thrown out of the building like a thief ?? Do you enjoy taking a shower and playing russian roulette with the temperature of the water at the same time ?? This is your place, no doubt !! Awful people, just out of the cast of 'Taken' with... More

Hi, I was in the hostel for 2 days. It was nice to stay there. Very near to the metro station. Some improvements can be made like Wi-fi facility in the rooms, fans can be installed in the room. It was very hot last week in Paris. Overall it was good experience in Paris and in Hostel.

Great staff (who almost all speak some level of English) who were always reasonably and approachable helpful. 24 hour front desk. Location in not a super tourist-packed corner of the city which is nice, but means that any main attraction is a decent walk or metro ride away. (I never attempted the bus) Really close to a metro station, grocery... More

I booked my reservation online for 2 nights. We ended up arriving in Paris a day early and wanted to book an extra night at the hostel. When we told the lady at the front desk we wanted to book and extra night she was having trouble understanding what we wanted and kept trying to tell us to cancel our... More

I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. It is everything you need with a hostel stay. A very shortened story: Rented a wheelchair at a local Pharmacy and had to put down a 400 EURO security deposit that I would receive back once I returned the wheelchair. Left Paris on a Sunday not even realizing that the Pharmacy would be... More

So, I booked a private room in a youth hostel for a one night stay in Paris for a trip where the accommodation was not to be the star attraction, and quite frankly I just wanted to lay down my head and have a shower. And it did the job. For £40 a night it was fine. Single bed, private... More
