“Good Sleep”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Second time I stayed there and I would stay there again.
The rooms and very clean and you get a good nights sleep
I stayed in room 11, there were 3 of us and we all enjoyed it. Having a room of 3 means you use the communal showers and bathrooms, these were both clean and fine to use. The showers were up stairs though.
the staff were friendly enough. the cleaners were nice too.
when we got to our room one light wasn't working and by the 3rd day it had been fixed, this is good! however the room was still very dark. This was the main bad point. as well as the fact there was only one plug point and it was very high up so small people (me) couldn't reach.
the room lock out from 11-3 was only bad on the first day as it meant after traveling we couldnt freshen up in our room until after 3.
The breakfast was too early and we missed it every day, they should keep it going until 11.

tips for staying in hostels:
Take a sleeping bag liner or sheet
Flipflops
torch
mini mirror for makeup

Room Tip: A room of 4 has its own en suit rooms smaller have shared facilities

I booked a room for 3, to stay with my friends. We were really tired because we were travelling for 1 week. We arrived in the evening and the staff didn't say about the cleaning time. We woke up in the morning to have a shower and get ready to go out and at 10am (30 minutes before the cleaning time, that we didn't know about) one guy came punching the door, screaming that we had to go out, otherwise he could bring the police to drive us out, he gave us 10 minutes to go out, and before this time he came to punch the door again, I had to go out using bra, because I wasn't ready yet. It was the worst experience of my life (and then when I complained with the owner, I realized they are brothers, so he will never fire the guy, and he just gave us part of the money back) and we had to move to the Ibis, in front of the hostel. As we just had 2 days in Paris and we spent loads of time in this confusion, I couldn't bring the police, as I would lose all of my time with this, but it's really really terrible the hostel, lots of stairs to go with your luggage, not comfy beds, terrible showers, terrible toilets... Terrible everything.

I spent 6 nights in that hostel. Reception staff is fine. Helpful, but a little bit ignorant. Rooms are very clean. There is a police hour between 11 and 15h. The time when they clean the rooms. Breakfast is just basic. Jam, butter and bread. Milk, or tea. Hostel is really big and you can find a lot of French young people staying there when coming to Paris and searching for a job. Price is excellent, only 18 euros for one night. Rooms are 1/4, 1/3, 1/2.

It was the worst and most expensive hostel I've ever been to. There is internet access only between 18.00 and 23.00 I have no idea why. Also breakfast is just about a piece of bread. Don't go there if you can.

The only good thing about it was the location. The bedding felt like it was unwashed. The shower was horrible. Something about this hostel made it feel like .... a prison for me.

The beds are really small and unconfortable. The common bathrooms are a complete disaster: as someone said before, the doors are open on the top and on the bottom, like "western movies"' doors (including the door to the corridor), so forget the privacy. Besides, the bathrooms are really dirty, you don't have where to put your clothes (a real problem, because everything gets wet). The staff are very disrespectful, specially with the girls: they try to touch your hair, your hand, just awful! Besides, they are not helpful, at all. Ok, the location is good, the price is good, but, sincerely, don't worth it.
