Pros: * Location (proximity to must-see destinations) * Cleanliness * Affordable (but you get what you pay for) Cons: * Wifi is not available from 8am - Noon * Getting kicked out from 11am - 3pm (I couldn't even go back inside my room to get a jacket) * It's on a very busy street with lots of noise (not...

Stayed in the hostel for a week, and the only positives were a couple of staff members, not all, and the location. The room key reader on my door stopped working; I understand those things happen. But, the desk associate told me to leave my door unlocked. He didn't want to leave the floor to unlock my door; he was... More

My sister and I stayed at Bastille Hostel during our 4 day trip in Paris in February. All we were looking for was a place to crash at night and leave our bags and this did the job just fine. Friendly service, very clean, and in an area of Paris full of shops and restaurants. It's about a 15 minute... More

The hostel is clean, close to the metro, bars and restaurants. But its hard to comunicate with the staff since they speak really poor english. You get kicked out of your room at 11 and they dont allow you to go in again until 15 o'clock. But the worst is the fact that they dont have doors for the bathroom,... More

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

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
