Where do I begin? Arrived at this hostel with 2 nights booked, stayed half an hour before booking an airbnb and leaving. I wouldn't stay at this hostel if they paid me. I gave 1 star because it's not possible to give 0. The bathroom is terrible, wouldn't even expect this in a jail cell. In fact I was thinking... More

I've seen worse hostels in my life, but it doesn't mean this one can be saved. They include free breakfast, but the receptionist didn't told us about it, and if another person hosted on the place didn't mention it to me, I would loose 2 days of it. They have a good localization, but the service is not good, the... More

This hostel is about a minute's walk from Gare du Lyon - and that's pretty much all it has going for it. It's down an alleyway next to the train station and generally has a group of men (staff?) lurking outside the front door, who catcalled me every time I went in. There must have been at least eight security... More

(For those of you who don't know what bed bugs are, google "cimex lectularius" for a whole description.) Hostel infested with bed bugs, if you don't want to infest your own home with these insects, DON'T EVER GO THERE !

It was cheap, but everything was terrible. When we checked in we had to show the receptionist our confirmation email. And we were forced to buy wifi acces for 3 €. He would not just give us acces. The toilet (there was only one) on our floor did not work. The shower was terrible. They have no private rooms. That... More

Room was decent. I was in a four bed dorm and I met two lovely people who were living there too. There are toilets outside the rooms but the sink is in the rooms so it's a little unhygienic. Nonetheless, the staff when I was there were absolutely love and helpful.

Do NOT stay here. There were a myriad of problems we discovered upon arriving at Blue Planet. Not only were the accommodations crappy (2€ to rent a towel, one outlet per room, one toilet per floor, squeaky beds, and an overall dirty atmosphere), but the lack of customer service was truly unnerving. A very particular circumstance regarding a guest approaching... More

Stayed here for the night as arrived via train and was convenient as it is only 100 metres from Gare De Lyon Station in Paris. As with the previous comments, it is true that there is no soap, the sink Is in your room, and it's quite drab.

I was on a solo trip in Paris, I knew living in Paris can be expensive but I have never thought of that bad! I pay for 17€ per night but what I received were just creepy! As mentioned by the others, only one key per room, single socket per room, no hangers in bathroom, have to go back to... More

I chose this hostel for the location, as it is a 2 minute walk from Gare de Lyon. The location is NOT worth it. This was an absolutely awful hostel: - No wifi - No elevators - Only one outlet per room, and it was 6 feet up on the wall - Only one extremely dirty shower/toilet per floor (about... 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.
