I booked this with my two girlfriends for a weekend in Paris. We are all studying abroad and didn't want to spend a ton of money on a hostel because we knew spending money in Paris would be a lot. BIG mistake. The location is good, literally next door to Gare du Nord, so seemingly positive. They didn't even have... More

Terrible. Dirty sheets, only one toilet per floor, only one key per room (!), no wi-fi, seedy area, horrible horrible place. You can get decent hostels in nicer places in Paris for the same money. Don't go.

Let me start off by warning you on many reasons why you should not stay here. There is not a single thing i enjoyed about this hostel and it will ruin your Paris trip entirely. Here is a list of the terrible things that took place: 1) Upon arriving, a group of 4 people came up to us and warned... More

I visited around 20 countries and always stayed at hostels. Blue Planet is, without not doubt, the worst place I've never been! My mattress was on the floor. Outside was -5 degrees but not heater in the room. In our room I saw 3 cockroaches and the bed sheet were dirty and full of unknown fluids.... Also the staff was... More

As the price was quite cheap, which I paid for €40.00 for two nights, I did not expect much from the hostel. I'd like to say it's lucky to have found this cheap hostel in an expensive Paris, and I stayed in a dorm room for 4 persons. Thumbs up for: 1. Its location which is very near to Gare... More

Not good hostel, there is a bathroom in each room but they do not have proper door, also you have to wake up at 11am because they "clean" the rooms until 3pm... The breakfast is a really bad, just 2 peaces of bread and a coffee... should be better if they said that they don't have breakfast!

It may seem tempting, but never NEVER do this mistake and choose this hostel, not even for one night. Dirty, full of bugs and insects, humanly IMPOSSIBLE to sleep in theese rooms. Bathrooms are shared and really dirty. But the worst part is the rooms. Beds are dirty and full of bugs and cockroaches. Same way the whole room. On... More

At first, everything seemed fine, we arrived (they told us to check in at 15.00), took a nap and went out to explore the city. When we got back though (around midnight) and entered the room it was full of bugs! EVERYWHERE! The floor, the walls, the doors, the beds! It was one of the most disgusting sights I have... More
