If you are traveling and decide to go to Paris DO NOT STAY HERE. We checked in on a Thursday night with a reservation for a 6 person room. The incredibly rude man at reception told us there were no 6 person rooms and we would be paying 30 euros a night (120 total for 4 days) to be thrown into a room with 6 other random people. Thankfully, our roommates were kind and we were tired so we fell asleep early. The next morning the hostel provided breakfast (absolutely horrible) but no WiFi, towels, or shower curtains (we had to steal WiFi from the hotel next door). The hostel forces you to share one key with 9 other roommates and never checked our IDs to make sure we were actually staying there; if we asked for the key, they gave it to us willingly without even knowing who we were. The second night we woke up to a piercing scream at 5:00 am from one of our hostel roommates-- a man had broken into our room and was crouching down by her bed trying to rob her while the 10 of us slept in the room. The man at reception (same rude man) couldn't care less about our problem and told us that it was probably someone staying at the hostel. The next day, when I tried to lock my things in the hostel lockers (2 euro every time you want to open the locker) the man yelled at me, called me a dumb American, and muttered things under his breath because I asked him how to set the code on the locker (mind you my room had been broken into the night before, not only was I extremely scared, but upset). Leaving the hostel was the best thing I've ever done and it truly ruined my time in France. It was extremely overpriced, reception was awful, the beds were disgusting, no shower curtain and no towels, gross, slimy floors, awful breakfast and overall a truly frightening experience. The location was not worth the experience we had. DO NOT STAY HERE.
