Stayed there with two of my friends a while back... We never stayed there long enough to appreciate the "fine dining". It served its purpose we were broke as hell and it was a cheap place to stay and at the time as we were young and stupid...not to book somewhere in advance.. although we only had one key and...

The one nice thing about this hostel is that it was near the metro station. I don't know when the last time the bedding was washed but the friends I was staying at the hostel with had glitter on his sheet and the other's had blood. The showers and toilets looked like they never got washed and were tiny. The... More

I have nothing positive to say about this hostel and would not recommend it to anyone needing a place to stay in Paris. Here is a list of all the bad things that I experienced whilst staying here for 5 days: - Staff were rude and unhelpful - Upon arrival a group of people came and approached me and told... More

It's true that it's not a good hostel, but it's not terrible either. Cost me 16.5€/night with 4 friends in a 5 bedroom w/private bath. TO GET FREE INTERNET IN LOBBY PC JUST USE CTRL+ALT+DEL. RIGHT CLICK ON THE PROGRAM, GO TO PROCESS AND CLOSE IT

Hostel Blue Planet is literally a stone's throw away from the Gare De Lyon metro station, and from this station you can pretty much connect to everywhere. The room was ok, nothing much to say. The staff are fine. Manuel

This hostel in the worst I've ever stayed in in my life. Good location near the subway. That's literally the only good point with it. We were a large group of 18 students travelling together, and we had a budget of practically nothing. So we had to go with the cheapest hostel we could find, but if you have any... More

This hostel gave me bed bugs that I have carried with me for months. Now I am home and trying once and for all to get rid of them. Bed bugs are impossible to stop. Not only is this place infested, the organization is awful. The management is always angry/not helpful, the guests are always angry. The "breakfast" is a... More

I would expect a lot more for that price, considering that now I escaped and I'm in another hostel in paris where I'm paying 5 euros more per night and it's definitely one of the best hostels I've ever seen. (St Christopher's inn) So, this is a REALLY LOW LEVEL hostel, so I'd go there just if I had to... More

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

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.
