Generally I do not bother myself with writing a reviews from all the places I visit but I need to say a few words. The place is a nightmare! We have booked a room for 4 people but get the 5 beds room where someone was already sleeping. The atmosphere is a bit scary cause there are weird guys working... More

The hostel is located in a Middle-Eatern/run-down neighborhood. Although it is cheap, the room was tight spaced. I've stayed there for 3 days 2 nights with 4 other friends. Imagine that we have to squeeze 5 people in a small room. There's a guest kitchen that comes with free cockroaches. The fridge was not cold in temperature. Anyone can just... More

I only paid something like 17€ and I understand why the price was so low. If think the neighborhood is unsafe (for those who know Paris this youth hostel is just next to Barbès - Rochechouart metro station). Thought it is really close to Montmartre. There are not lockers in the rooms. The bathrooms are very used and unclean. The... More

Honestly i was scared in the beginning to go there, but since we were a group of friends on a budget we booked this hostel and turns out it wasn't as bad it sound over here. The room was fine, sheets and pillows were clean. The flooring was old, but common you get a clean bed. We had a attached... More

I stayed one night here . Cheap hostel with strategic location. Right across this hostel is a metro station. Very close to the Sacre Coeur. Nevertheless , the cleanliness and condition of room and bathroom and the service were below average. Wi fi was free but there's a time limit.

Lovely service. Helpful and efficient. Beds and rooms cleaned daily. Nice garden bit to meet fellow travellers. No problem with hot water etc showers were good. Area is dodgy but 10 minute walk to moulin rouge and 1 minute walk to metro. You get what you pay for but its honestly fine.

Meant to stay for 4 nights, stayed for 1. Check in normally 12:30pm however we weren't allowed too until 4:30pm due to 'cleaning' because of bed bugs. Finally got into room which smelt horrible and had dirty boxers in it. just before going to bed discovered MASSIVE bed bugs climbing all over the walls at 1am, went down to reception... More

Didnt look at the reviews before arriving-worst decision of my life!!!! Paid 4 nights in cash and left two hours after arrival to a €40 a night hotel because I was so disgusted by the hostel experience. If you are a group of girls I warn you not to go to this hostel or location as the neighbourhood is so... More

There were few positives of this hostel. The fellow backpackers were lovely, and the garden was nice if dirty. The service was average at best. The wifi is only available between 9am and 6pm, of course the times when everyone is out. But the worst is yet to come. There are bed bugs all over, some which are HUGE. There... More
