I can no disagree with previous reviews. It is a very average hotel, to be honest it is hard to call this place a hotel. The first room I was given smelt with cat's urine to the point that my clothes started smell like that too after just one night there. I asked to be moved to another room and... More

I'm not going to write a long review so here is a list of what made this "hotel" so bad. Be aware we knew it would be bad from the reviews but it was cheap but still ........ 1) toilet was on the stairs and had a tiny door you had to crawl through and no toilet paper even after... More

Badly maintained place, dirty rooms, awfully done laundry for the sheets and towels, and not a great location either. There is just one toilet for the whole floor, and it doesnt even have heating, and in some cases no papers. Just dont go for it.

Customers from backpackers to businessmen. I can recommand it warmly! But not for you all so for my next time it will be... More

The hotel is located in central Paris which is handy, but the room I was in was really basic with a cold tiled floor, and an uncomfortable bed, the room I was in was located on the second floor facing what looked like flats and above a bus stop which was not good, The nights sleep was terrible, I did...

The hotel itself is ok. Rooms are good, bed is good, shower rooms are ok. The neighborhood is good as well. Located very near the metro station at Leon Blum square, walking distance of Bastille and Pere Lachaise cemetery. Wifi is only accessible at the reception area, but at least they have it. The only reason I give this poor... More

I don't know where to even begin. Having to stay in Paris for 7 nights on a budget we had a limited choice to stay at this 'hotel' besides the location this place has nothing else going for it. The staff are extremely disrespectful and inefficient. Our room was not clean even once. Wi fi never worked. We had to... More

To start off the location was lovely. Not close to anything touristy but very close to several metro stations, lovely restaurants & a beautiful fountain park area. This hostel was pretty secure. Rooms double locked and access code needed after midnight. Other guests were inoffensive and friendly. Now that all the good points are out the way. Oh my god... More

Has a backpacker this Hotel is "good", because it's simple, wasn't expensive, it's on a good location and seemed clean. But the huge problem is that you really can't sleep in there! Unfortunately I stayed in the room above the reception and if I slept 3h that night was a lot. Each time someone entered and slammed the door, the... More
