I went to Paris with my diploma course and institution for an event. And we stayed at this hostel for 10 nights to save on cost. From the beginning I was quite wary as I had heard bad reviews from this site. Upon arriving, we were told to put our luggage in the pantry/ kitchen area as we could not... More

Without a doubt, the best location in Paris, close to the Louvre Museum. Besides that, the staff is very helpful too. Internet wi-fi is not free, but it's not expensive: just 5 euros for one week. The breakfast is very nice.

They openly admit that it's an 'old school' hostel and it really is. There aren't any of the mod cons you find in most 21st century hostels, as demonstrated in the number of plug sockets in the rooms - our room had one socket between four people! The bathrooms were passable and the rooms rather pokey, but WiFi is only... More

I stayed in a double room with my sister. Clean sheets and clean room were lovely. The showers and toilet were shared with another room and always clean. The staff spoke English quite well and Kaleb was particularly helpful. Would recommend particularly for location.

This is basic hostel so don't expect too much comfort. The rooms are ok to sleep overnight and location of hostel is excellent. You can ask at the reception for additional blankets if the night is cold. Staff was very helpful and on my surprise guy at the reception speak English (this is Paris, remember). Breakfast is very nice and... More

You just need 3 minutes to walk to Musee de Louvre -- if that's all you care about. You cannot close the window entirely in some rooms (I stayed 2 nights in 2 rooms). There is only a very, very thin blanket prepared for you even if it was cold. So I slept under my down jacket but it was... More

If you stay here, expect some sort if problem. No free WIFI, rooms are dirty, no lockers, little hot water, no elevator, and staff is unhelpful. The only good thing is the location. Still, I regret staying here. The Louvre is easy to get to by metro, there are other hostels that are much better than here and not far... More

My friend and I stayed here for just the one night, primarily because of the central location and value for money , but we were pleasantly surprised with the property, especially after having read some negative reviews and the honest property description. Certainly it is basic, but it was immaculately clean, with friendly staff, nice dorms and clean linen, and... More
