It may seem reasonably priced... until you get there. And then you realise you should probably be paid to stay there. LOCATION --------------- Sure, it's close to Gare du Nord but it is the sketchiest area of Paris I have ever been to. Out the front of the hostel, groups of men hang around acting intimidating and looking gang-like. Whenever... More

This place was truly appalling! It may be the dirtiest hotel in Paris. The surounding area is dangerous, too Staying there is one of the biggest mistakes I've ever made in my life. Stay away from that place or you'll regret it forever!

Friend's Hostel is the dirtiest, sketchiest, rudest, grimiest, and worst hostel I've ever stayed at. I have been traveling through Europe for two months and by far this is the worst decision I've ever made booking this hostel. There are very shady people hanging out in the lobby just staring and watching you go up to your room, and infested... More

It is cheap and near the metro, there are the only two nice things. Whereas the rooms are small, overcrowded and dirty. I left some cookies in my backpack only to discover that some rats ate them during night! It has no wc in the room alsoif you book for ensuite ones. The room in which you are supposed to... More

My friend and i stayed here for 3 nights in a 4 bed dorm with own shower. The hostel was cleaned daily and never seemed dirty at any times. Service was pretty standard. The location was swell. Right next to the metro and generally close to everything. Lots of opportunities to get a feel of the real and non touristic... More

Bed bugs, bed bugs and one more time BED BUGS!! It was the worst hostel ever, never stay in there, it is really better to pay more, than being bitten by insects, rooms are small dirty, doggy, scuzzy and ugly. AVOID IT!

First off the hostel is in a very unsafe area with drug dealers outside the door and groups of suspicious men standing around watching you, it is very threatening!! To the point my friend and I moved to a hotel as we felt so unsafe! Secondly, when we got to our room we were in a vey unstable triple bunk... More

absolutely terrible! Rooms are small, ugly and old but the worst part is the filthiness! It was incredibly dirty. The room, the bedsheets and the shower smelled awfully! It is in a rather dangerous neighborhood, beds ere very uncomfortable, the heating didn't work well and wi-fi didn't work at all. The only good part is that it was literally across... More

I stayed in a dorm with 13 beds, the room was just like a garage. The room was dirty, and you probably won't like to see mice running around in the room. And the free wifi just provided in day time when everyone is out of the hostel and charge you when you are back in the hostel! That's not... More
