Strongest point is, this is a hell of a deal to sleep for that much in Paris. Plus it is near the train and not far away from the matro (and the Plance de la Bastille). Breakfast is included; It consist of two croissants (or pain au chocolat) that you can choose. There was only two shower for the whole... More

I stayed in this hostel alone for 2 nights, with very warm weather. Though there is no airconditioning, sleeping in the heath was fine as long as the window was open. My bed was not clean and the space in small, but that is why it is so cheap, so I was fine with it. Yes there is only one... More

I think this is about all the good things I can say about this hostel. The cleaning is not his strongest point, but I believe a part is also because of the guests. The breakfast is cheap and unhealthy. The guests were the strongest point, I've met nice people

It's cheap and close to the train station. Beds are ok. That's about it for the positives guys... One bathroom and one shower per floor for 6 rooms of 4 or more people... So it's a decent line up every morning. And there is no sinks in the bathroom so instead, you have to do your business, and then walk... More

We stayed here for 2 night. The rooms and bathrooms were really dark and dirty. If you are an adventurer with low budget it may be not a problem. Because you should consider that this hostel has a central location in Paris. Note: there is no internet connection and cold water.

First I want to point the location is great, really close to the subway that can take you anywhere. The neighborhood is good, and there are nice restaurantes around. But the hostel is not good at all, the breakfast comes from a machine that give you coffe and a madalaine. The bathroom is outside and shared, there are separated rooms,... More

This hostel is terrible. They do not change the sheets or clean the bathrooms. The one outlet thing is ridiculous and the wifi was down when I was a guest, so I couldn't even pay for wifi if I wanted. On a positive note, the hostel is located close to Bastille which is where a lot of Paris nightlife is!... More

My boyfriend was devoured by bedbugs. He had 71 bites on one leg, 46 on another... We didn't even bother counting the ones on his torso, arms and neck. The receptionist gave us money back for that night (only for him though not me) but would not give us refund for the next night (obviously we did not want to... More
