This hostel is quite large which is great for meeting other travellers. The rooms are clean and well maintained. Free breakfast is delicious but it would be nice if there was some fruit included.
I was disappointed that the rooms are closed between 11am and 3pm - if you're sick and want to spend the day in bed you have no option but to leave your room. The bathrooms were really clean and new but I was disappointed there was no soap to wash your hands. I don't know but this might be standard in western hostels(?).
The location is okay - close to inexpensive grocery stores in Chinatown and it's easy to get around by Metro as there are several stations within a few minutes' walk from the hostel. I walked to Père Lachaise Cemetery from the hostel.
It would be nice if the hostel had shelves for the top bunks and lockers in the room.
Finally I will just say that the courtyard is really lovely. I think it's nice that the hostel has somewhere for people to hang out and smoke, even though I am not a smoker.
