“Good location and price, not friendly staff”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

The location of the hostel is very good, very near to two different metro stations and in a very safe neighborhood. We booked a bedroom for 4 people with private bathroom. The bedroom was clean and beautiful, but a bit small. The bathroom was nice, but a bit small too. The towels provided for rental are really really tiny, be aware. The staff was not rude, but not friendly also. But for the price you pay, this hostel is a good deal!

I chose Oops! because of how close it was to two metro lines (14 and 7), with the 7 Les Gobelins metro being a straight-down-the-street 2 minute walk and for how inexpensive it was. I only stayed 1 night, but from what I experienced I liked it. There are like 7 or so computers in the lobby which is great for updating friends and family about your trip in Paris. Breakfast is a simple 2 breads, jam and butter, some granola, milk, tea, coffee, and juice. For me, the breakfast was filling enough to last until lunch. I appreciated how nice the rooms, common area, and bathroom looked aesthetically. Also if you want to save money, you can buy some dinner at the market across the street, and use the hostel kitchen with toaster oven, microwave, and sink.There is a large elevator so bringing up luggage to your room is no problem at all. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hostel to a friend.

Stayed for three nights. Beds squeaky (especially if you're on the top bunk) but I suppose you can get used to this. A small hand soap in the bathroom wouldn't go astray. Left contact lenses on the bathroom sink and they were thrown out as part of the 'cleaning' service (which is emptying the bin and straightening the towel...on the floor!?). Shower really poor, non existent water pressure and mould everywhere. Our bathroom smelt like something rotting for the whole time. Breakfast is not all that appealing - mainly bread and croissant, with cordial. Mixed messages regarding wifi in rooms. We were told we had to use internet in the dining area, roomate was given a code for use in the room. Connection patchy upstairs. Helpful reception staff re: directions, busses, activities, etc.

Hey there,

The mold issue was due to a plumbing problem in only ne room, and that has been repaired, we are sorry about that.
Just remebering that breakfast, apart from the croissant and the bread roll, has also muesli, chocolate cereal, jam, butter, choice of teas, coffee, hot chocolate -- and it is for free.

Kind regards,

Oops! Staff

We stayed in this place in our recently concluded Euro Trip with my friends in Paris. Since this was our first visit to Paris, we looked at reviews in the Guardian site and chose this place.

The location is really convenient, it is close to two metro stations (Les Goblins and Place d'Italie) and a good shopping mall. It also has a bunch of Cafe's, Bars and restaurants close by.

You could easily miss the entrance to the hostel as they don't have a big board and it is flanked on both the sides by cafes.

We had booked a private room and it was rather small and tiny with no extra closet space. You might much better off sharing a 2 people room with bunk beds. It will give you more space.

Breakfast was simple and nice and the staff were extremely courteous and helpful during our stay. There is always someone in the front desk 24X7 and quite happy to answer any queries which you might have.

The WiFi in the rooms were good and they also have a kiosk with few computers near the reception if you want to check emails or local tourist attractions.

If you are looking for an affordable stay in Paris and in a location that is well connected, go for OOps!! If you are looking for spacious rooms and views, this might not be the place for you.

Recently stayed at this Hostel for 1 night, as part of a euro trip. The hostel is in a great location, close to 2 Metro stations Place d'italie and Les Gobelins. The rooms are clean and modern (i shared a 2 person Dorm) with ensuite. Breakfast is buffet style, and is basic continental. Friendly staff and glad to be able to leave Backpack secure for day to explore after checkout.

Pros:
Location is nice. 5 to 10 mins walk to Gothic Quarter, and close to 2 metro station (Les Gobelins and Place d' Italie). Restaurants around the area. Free breakfast of 2 breads + juice, milk, coffee, tea, cereals.

Free storage for luggage but it is not so secure since anyone can go inside the storage room.

Clean rooms

Cons:
Staff not that friendly and nice. Room a little bit small and the bed makes too much noise. AC not that cold.

This is a well-located hostel - handy for the Place d'Italie and Gobelins metro stations and also a 20 minute walk to Notre Dame. Breakfast is free and is good - a croissant and a bread roll, plus self-service cereal, tea, coffee and juice. There is a microwave you can use too (but no fridge). Wifi was variable both in coverage in the rooms (sometimes worked, sometimes didn't) and in whether or not it worked. No lockers in the rooms but there are good sized combination lockers in the corridors for valuables. However, there is no bar and not much of an atmosphere in the downstairs area, which got very busy at breakfast. One night/morning there was also no hot water. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall, I'd stay here again for the location and price - the facilities are reasonably basic but good enough and there are certainly no problems with cleanliness etc. If travelling alone I would probably stay elsewhere as I think it would be easier to meet people, but otherwise I'd recommend Oops.
