We had booked a room for 5 persons with wc for two nights and surprise surprise, when we arrived there was no wc in our room. The hostel was in a scary and shady area and we were afraid to be there all the time. In the second and last night of our stay, we went back to our small... More

We had booked friends hostel for 3 nights, paid the deposit and even ensured our booking by calling to the hostel one day before coming. Day 1 the staff said that there is no space and we have to go another hostel near by. Ok, it was little weird but we went to the other place and it was fine.... More

Friend Hostel was awful. It was in a horrible area. The street it’s on was FILLED with creepy men, who made comments at me and my friend as we walked by. The actual hostel was pretty run down. It didn’t have lockers to put our things in and it was NOT secure. Our bunk beds were really old and rickety.... More

The front desk at this hostel is staffed by the rudest, most hostile people I have ever had the misfortune to deal with. On the day of my check-in, my flight was delayed and I arrived two hours late. The man at the front desk had given my bed away, and when I explained that I was stuck at the... More

Hostel is located in very busy area, we arrived at the night, in front of hotel were standing lot of people, junkies, maybe prostitutes etc.. But it was only at night, during the day there was no problem with it. There is a metro station (Barbès – Rochechouart) 50 metres in front of hostel, arriving to hostel is quite safe.... More

Do not book this hostel they will not have a record of your booking! The hostel is situated in a TERRIBLE area. We arrived at night and were met with rats, junkies, prostitutes and gangs that were considering whether to rape or mug you. In the foyer of the hostel there were 30 people in the same situation as us.... More

Hi, I booked the hostel online keeping in view its cheap price. but when I read all reviews, 99% were negative and I became worried. I had payed the deposit then I thought I am only going for 2 days to paris so if I feel that it is not worth I will change my accommodation. The first positive is... More

I stayed here for 3 nights with two friends when we spent a month backpacking around Europe. I'd seen a lot of negative reviews here beforehand, but I dismissed a lot of them as being too demanding. After all, we just wanted the cheapest hostel we could find, and were willing to tolerate the most modest of hostels as long... More
