The only redeeming factor this hostel has is the great location. Other than that the sheets were dirty, we woke up covered in bites every morning. The showers are pretty grim, cold and slimy. I already knew about the 'free breakfast' consisting of a croissant from a vending machine, from the other reviews, but for some bizarre reason you are... More

All the bad reviews I read are true. The place is very bad. Unlucky me wanted to drop my bags of my back and not expecting a hostel to be this bad, I signed for five nights. Been to hostels around the world, didnt think before Blue Planet that one can have nerve to propose a thing like that for... More

I booked this last minute before the Wales V Northern Ireland match at the Euros and it was fairly cheap! The location was excellent (right next to the Gare Du Lyon) and I experienced friendly service from the staff there. However, I went to drop my bag off and couldn't get into the room as there was one key for... More

No bed sheets, pillows and blankets smell like sweat. Be careful with reservation, you'll pay the whole thing at once there is no cancellation possible. I don't know what's wrong with the room keys but mine worked only once. Staff is not welcoming.

I'm not sure what other hostels are like in Paris but this was the worst one Id ever stayed in in Europe. Bed were comfortable, they gave me an English book to read and the staff were semi-accommodating. But the facilities were terrible. The showers smelt bad and were cold with minimal pressure! (I had to wash my hair in... More

One of the worst hostels I´ve ever stayed at. It is not cheap and it is NOT GOOD. -The key system of the dorms is stupid, there is one key per room, so first to go in and last to get out has the key. So if you are sleeping at 3am and someone comes in you have to get... More

There's only ONE key for a room of four strangers. If you are the first one to check in you get the key to open the room. Then you surrender it to the reception, and you have to knock and your roommates have to open the door for you. If you return at 11 pm, 1 am, 3 am, 6... More

The hostel is compact. It needs more care. Bathrooms are broken down and floors not well clean. There is no free wi fi. The location is fairly good. The management needs to look into the cleaning issue. During my stay the toilet on my floor was broken and the bathroom tiles were slimy from a mixture of dirt and soap

I stayed here for 4 nights and have never been more grossed out! The sheets were dusty an dirty upon arrival, as if they hadn't been washed in months. When the other girls in my room moved out they were supposed to clean and change the sheets for the next people to arrive but they didn't. All they did was... More

I stayed in a shared room and it had only 1 power socket!!! The bathroom and toilet were very dirty. The receptionist wasn't friendly and helpful. There was no free wifi and you gotta pay for it. Even if you do so, it was only available in the lobby. Breakfast served was simply a small piece of bread and coffee.... More

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.
