This was one of the most disgusting nights i had. Once fall asleep some guy came at the bed below and started mastrubating loud. I curse, he stops and 20 minutes later he starts again, the whole bed was moving. I go out and tell them that i want to leave and take my money back. They say i change room but i was so disgused i wanted eather to leave or take this guy out. They handled the situation completely wrong. I was waiting for the boss from 5 to 10 in the morning to take my money back and at the end they didnt even give me. They said i should go to Police, but i had to catch a flight. Just dont go there

I was staying in a room with 3 more girls. The room was dirty. And THANKS GOD that there was only room for girls because I was seeing on the corridor only strange old men. I was feeling myself there very unsafety. We have had only 1 key for 4 people. It was very uncomfortable. There were only one toilette and a shower for the whole floor! They were horribly dirty! The hostel is located in a very dangerous location. If you are a girl who is going to stay in the hostel alone, DON'T DO THIS HERE!

Technically, I did not stay. I went to bed at midnight and was viciously bitten by bed bugs (fleas) until around 1:30 AM, when I decided to leave. The front desk person told me that he cannot give me another bed because it was full, but in fact, I did not wanted to stay there. I walked the rest of the night until dawn, because at 2 AM is very difficult to get another room in that neighborhood, especially being my first trip to Paris. I paid 19 euros for this "experience". Next day I went back, because i forgot to deliver the keys. At the front desk, another employee in charge told me -after I requested a refund-, that I need proof that I was bitten, such as pics of bed linen with stains of blood. He even suggested that I use old pics that someone else had posted, when I told him that I had not taken any pic. He was aware that the hostel has this problem, but said it would be difficult to get a refund, and that request has to be done through "Booking.com". I told him that a refund won't help me much, as I already passed a night without sleep and had my body covered in bug bites, but that I feel my duty to inform other travelers about what can be expected at this place. He admitted that the employee at front desk gave me a wrong information, because they had other beds available the night before. I attach here a couple of pictures as proof that I'm telling the truth. Some bites caused an allergic reaction, in which pustules formed that I had to blow and clean. Also had to buy medication to alleviate the itch during the rest of the trip. Since the fleas that bitten me must have bitten other people, I need to do a blood test to verify that I’m not infected with some disease. This hostel should be shut down by a sanitary institution, because it does not meet the basic health conditions.

we stayed here for two nights but couldnt sleep at night because of the noise of the street and bad smell of drains. Extremely unsafe for women. By staying here you can save some money but will buy a lot of stress.
