Although the room was really small, ventilation in the shower room not the best and bed slightly squeaky, the location of the hostel and the price-value rate is worth it for sure. Breakfast very basic (cereal,croissant, juice, coffee or baguette with jam/butter). Safe lockers. City maps provided. Very poor wifi, which was probably most disappointing thing during the stay (though... More

What this hotel has going for it is location. Very close to Republique which has lots of great metro connections and walkable to Bastille, the Pompidou, bars and restaurants in Oberkampf etc. However don't come here to meet people. The only real common area is a basement kitchen and nobody really 'hangs out' there. Further, I had a few issues... More

I stayed at this hostel three times over the course of one week as a stopping point between travels to London and back and just a two-day trip of sightseeing in Paris. The first two times I stayed in a six-bed mixed room, the second time in a four-person mixed. This is by no means a four star hotel experience,... More

First things first: the hoStel (it is a hostel, after all) has an awesome value (avg. 20€ for a spot in a 4-bed dorm, breakfast included) for Paris, particularly in its location (very close to a central metro station). It is particularly awesome to be able to get around easily with friends. The rooms are relatively clean, sheets are clean... More

I stayed here months ago during a weekend visit to Paris. My roommate had booked the hostel and so I didn't question it. Our trip to Paris had a rough start, our flight had been delayed and we arrived to Paris way later than we were expecting. We were hoping to rest comfortably, or at least rest as soon as... More

The hotel is great for the location! Pretty near to the metro Republique station, and it's very convenient to go to almost anywhere in Paris from here. The staff weren't too helpful for me though. They seemed to be rather busy doing their own business instead of answering my questions. And it's quite noisy in the room. You can hear... More

Stayed for 2 nights, the room was fine (small, but hey, it's Paris) and had everything we needed (bed, toilet and shower!), the location was really handy to Republique on the Metro, and there were plenty of places to eat nearby. For one, Le Cabinet de Sa Majeste we can recommend highly! One thing: don't let your partner dry her... More

Love my stay at Absolute Paris. The location is very near to the metro station though it's a bit "hidden" right next to a cafe and I almost missed it while locating it at night. It will be great if the signage is lighted at night and it will be easier for first timer to locate the place conveniently. The... More

My friend and I were warmly welcomed by the brilliant staff at Absolute Paris. We stayed in a 4-bed dorm which for the price was fine. That's where the good news ended though. Arriving back later after dinner the other people in our room were incredibly noisy and disruptive (what did we expect in a dorm though) and the walls... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 3 nights in June 2013, when we first arrived we were greeted warmly by someone who spoke fluent english which was very helpful! We had a lovely private room on the top floor with an ensuite, bathroom slightly on the small side but not a problem. In a really nice part of Paris,... More
