I booked a room for two , with one friend ! The room had a good area , with a bunk bed , the Bathroom it is not the best one at all, the room have a concept of open space I must say , so what separes the sleeping part with the bathroom it is just a shower curtain!...

Horrible attention, bad beds and a horrible shower. We did not have a toilet in our floor and the "wi-fi" promised did not even work. The breakfast was a bad joke and really bad. It is not even secure, I saw that a girl lost her camera in the luggage storage Look for another hostel!

We booked a private room just for my girlfriend and I, and what do we get? BUNK-BEDS! We are a grown couple and we get bunk-beds in Paris, which is supposed to be romantic. Furthermore, we had a 'shower' in our room, with less water pressure than a tap, and absolutely disgusting surface on the floor. We had no toilet...

Before I embellish on the headline, let me share some other frightening details about this establishment: 1. WiFi only works between 12:30 pm and 1:00 am. 2. You have absolutely no access to your room between the hours of 12:00 pm and 4:00 pm (even if you're staying in the same room for multiple nights) 3. The bathrooms are such...

The hostel is horrible and the staff does an effort to make it worst. Wifi besides beeing slow is shut down between 1:30 am to 12:30 pm, we never understood why. No one in the staff speaks a fluent english. Although people on the front desk are nice, the breakfast guy seemed annoyed with our visit. On our check out...

Lock outs from 11am-3pm daily, which was good as they could clean the rooms more thoroughly. Breakfast was provided daily, same items each day though Unable to keep...

The staff is very unfriendly, you have to leave your room the whole day ( from 11 am until 3pm) you can't go in your room at that time and they catch off your key. The wifi only works from 12.30 until 01:00. I visit 21 hostel before this one but this is the worst experience i had.

I agree with all the comments from the reviewers who rates this hostel "terrible". It being the first hostel I stayed at, it was surprising but I figured that's how they all are. NOPE. This youth hostel really treats you like a child, with far too many rules. The budget price is the only redeeming factor. If you want a...

First, let me tell you that I do not have a high standard for places I stay. Generally, I'm out and about the whole day when I'm traveling so it doesn't matter to me where I sleep at night. BUT THIS PLACE. I have stayed here almost 2 weeks and it has been the worst place I've ever stayed in...

This has to be the worst hostel in Europe. Cannot see one that'd be worse. They advertise clean and comfortable, it's dirty and disgusting. They advertise wifi, but it is very misleading as it's only available during certain hours and in the common area, not in your room. The toilet and shower are basically in the same room, only separated...

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
