Check in was no hassle and the room looked very basic and small but we were not too fussy. After the first uncomfortable night we were rudely woken by people telling us to get out because they had to clean the rooms for the next 2/3 hours, getting ready to start our day we tried to look for an unblocked...

I chose the hostel for the convenient location across from the Metro Station. I arrived at 9 pm. After I paid for the room fee, I found The place is nothing but a bunch of dirty bunk beds crowded in smelly rooms. No common room, no kitchen. Staff tried to scam me off in the morning by saying that check... More

We were two girls and were scared to stay in this place which looked like a haloween horror house. Dark rooms, no kitchen, not enough toilets, dirty (not even a hand wash in the dirty toilets), very unsafe neighbourhood (definite no if you are a solo traveller), no heater in the room (we were freezing while reception stayed toasty warm)...

The staff were very nice, and the cleanliness wasnt the worst I've seen, but the location is terrible and the owner's extremely unsympathetic. As a solo (experienced) female traveller I did not feel comfortable c the 50 meters from the metro station to the front door, during the day! Didn't even attempt it at night. I had a resevation for... More

Congratulations, Friend's hostel! You were the last hostel I visited in my Europe travelling and I went to over 20 hostels in that trip but I found this to be the most unpleasant. My room was tiny and my bed did not have any frames or stairs which meant I had to climb somebody else's bed to get up on... More

Hostel located near metro station and close to Montmartre. However, the district seems dangerous, so be very careful. Guys in reception was quite helpful. Except the fact, they had no clean towels and instead of that they gave us sheets. It was clean more or less, but in general, hostel looks very very poor. And no free wi-fi after 6... More

Not for fussy travellers! + very friendly staff + cheap + you can come and go anytime + good location + clean Some aspects you should consider : - very little rooms, I stayed in a 3 bed room (1 3 storey bunk bad) - shower and toilet outside the room, one sink inside. Many reviews were about hot water,... More

Super bedbugs hostel ever. I got a couple of hundreds of bites. Bed sheets are clean, but I screamed out when I changed it. It looks like thousands of mold points with whole mattress and a cushions. (No pillow) bathroom toilets are terribly filthy. They sprayed but it's completely meaningless options. I couldn't enjoy stay in Paris. Staffs are okay,but... More
