The location and price of the hostel led me to book it for a weekend in Paris but it was one of the worst youth hostels I have been to. The building is very old and dingy, the rooms are alright but the bathrooms/toilets are shared across the floor and very limited in number and pretty bad. The breakfast is... More

Sadly it happened and I found myself disappointed by a youth hostel; a first among the many cities I've visited so far and it appears quite rich that the one I had the worst experience with is also the one I left most money for.

I think this was an average hostel, though this was my first experience staying in one; I suppose the idea is that if you're visiting the city of Paris, you won't be spending much time in your hotel/hostel room, so with that in mind, it was okay. Things to be aware of: 1. They do not provide any towels (in... More

I am a currently a customer of the hostel and I am staying in a private room for two people with private toilet and shower. It is by far a much worse than I expected! The building is really old and badly kept, the bed sheets that we got had stains, the basin leaks and the toilet is not in... More

This was my first time staying in a hostel and very happy to say it won't be my last! Exceeded my expectations; clean, safe, no noise, very central location. Staff could be friendlier, hell, I met such nice French people everywhere I went but not in the hostel. Anyways-It's a great location, I was able to walk everywhere and the... More

Great location. Not even a 5 minute walk to the Bastille, and surrounding métro stops. We walked to the Seine in about 15 mintues, and that was including the stop at the Boulangère for a baguette. Great resturaunts close by as well. As for the hostel, you get what you pay for... just watch out for your belongs and don't... More

We ordered the hostel with great anticipation. We were promised breakfast, air conditioning, bath, lift, TV and Internet and it looked good, lovely even. We ordered three beds and were really excited about this! .. But then we arrived.. The first night a mistake had been made and we couldn't share a room as we'd expected so one of us... More

The hostel is fantastic. I booked a single room and I was really happy with that. Nice breakfast, internet, shower inside the room. The team of people who works at hostel is really really good. P.S.: Everybody speaks in english :)

Stayed here in a private room for 3 nights. Private rooms are on the top floor so no noise which was nice. Great location, tons of bars around and close to 3 metros. Decently clean, bring flip flops for the shower as it was a bit scummy. No towels. Also they say when booking that most private rooms have a... More

Staying in Bercy / Nation

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
