You get what you pay for. This place is cheap but pretty bad. When my group arrived, they gave us a room different than what we booked/paid for and said that the room size that we booked didn't exist. Breakfast consists of a vending machine. The shower didn't have a curtain. No A/C and the fan's cord was cut. Avoid... More

It's one of the cheapest in Paris, and like everyone else has said below- it's pretty bad. Pros: good location, receptionist was friendly, you get 'breakfast' (2 tokens for vending machine hot drink and pastry) Cons: dirty everything, there's only one key per room so you have to knock to get in if someone else is already there, one bathroom...

You really get what you pay for and at the end of the day its so cheap what do you expect. If you're going to be out all day and are only looking for somewhere to sleep its perfect for you, but if you're going to be spending quite a bit of time there I wouldn't recommend. I Went there... More

Walking down the criminal looking dingy alleyway concern grew on us instantly, we were met by an unfriendly cashier, where we were unable to pay with card. We were on the 5th floor meaning we had to walk up 5 flights of squeaky stairs just to get to our room and on top of that there was only one card... More

+ It wasn't the best place ever but it was clean when I was there and the staff were ok. Maybe it is the best option if you want something cheap (for €15/day) and you have breakfast (coffe/cappuccino, croissant etc.) too. The others had problems with it, but for this price... c'mon! Be serious! Don't stay in the hostel, go... More

Do not ever stay there! I stayed on the fourth floor in room 440 and was on a cot on the ground where I was eaten by bed bugs. The place is gross and I thought I would save money but you are so much better off going ANYWHERE else!!! The staff is rude, I called once I saw I... More

Lets be honest it really isn't the best hostel in the world. It is quite dirty, there is one toilet and shower between like 30 people on each floor however, it is actually so bad that it is good. So if you leave your room you have to give in your key (because there is only one key per room)... More

Then I had to BUY two euro worth of Internet JUST to show HIM MY reservation. Isn't that what I paid you for????? So so so rude to us. The saying "it's a hostel" is wrong. I've backpacked... More

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

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.
