“Just doesn't reaach the minimum standard expected in 2012.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2012

Just doesn't reaach the minimum standard expected in 2012. No wardrobe, drawers, toilet or shower in bedroom. No sink in the toilet. Didn't even have an iron to press my shirt. One staff member was rude. TV remote didn't work. Only book if desperate and willing to accept the standards of a shabby hostel for the price of a 3 star hotel.

Just a warning that this hotel uses booking.com and you are fully charged the first night with no refund even if you cancel 5 minutes after your booking. I e-mailed 3 times to complain to the hotel about this, with no response, Terrible customer service!

Room Tip: You will not find one at this hotel.

The room was very small and basic, with no bathroom, and it was not so clean. But what really shocked me is you have to pay for a shower. The toillets are on the staircase and are so small you hardly fit in them. The place is depressing and the staff is not at all helpfull. The only good thing is the location.

My friend and I just stayed at this hotel and the online photos and info is beyond misleading. There are no bathrooms inside the room. You have to pay 2.50 euros to shower. There are NO OUTLETS in the room. I had to unplug the tv in order to charge my phone. And we refused to sleep under the covers because when I pulled it back I saw tiny black hairs!

I asked for a reimbursement so I could stay somewhere else and they just ignored me.

The only positive is that the counter men are friendly. And oh the wifi! It is not throughout the building only in the lobby. Possibly if you're on one of the lower floors you would be able to get it but for the most part no. At one point it just stopped working.

I am aware Paris is expensive and whatnot but look for something else or pay a bit more. Never again will I make this mistake.

If you are traveling to Paris on a budget, this is a decent place to stay. There are many establishments that call themselves hotels that should actually be classified as hostels, this is one of those establishments.

Minimal blankets and no extra pillows (one long, thin pillow on the bed). Saw a mouse run across our room at one point. No toilets in the rooms, they are in the sprial stairway. Keys are left at the front desk when you leave and some of the front desk clerks do not speak English. It helps to be able to speak French in France! No elevator.

The hostel is close to the Pompidou Center and near Notre Dame as well. There are a few Metro stations within a close walk. A lot of shopping and dining close to the hotel as well as a few seedy places of business. You can leave you bags at the front desk when you check out to pick up later.

Good hostel for backpackers or young couples on a tight budget. I will look a little harder for something a little nicer the next time I'm in Paris.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a street view.

The staff just don't care when you asked them for something. The rooms smell like somebody's feet, the furniture is from 1950s. I would NOT stay there if they payed me money to be honest.
If you don't want to spoil your holiday then please please avoid this place like a plague.

Dare i say those positive reviews must have been written mostly by the staff themselves.
