Oops! Hostel
Ranked #23 of 190 Specialty Lodging in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 9, 2014

I stayed at Oops for two nights with my boyfriend in July. This hostel is a short walking distance from two subway stops in a quiet, beautiful neighborhood. It is also walking distance to a shopping mall. The lobby is small and quirky, but the staff is kind and attentive. There is a small bulletin board in the lobby that has info on local happenings, if you find yourself with a free night. If you arrive early before check in, you can store your bag in a small storage closet at the back of the dining area. If you have something you really care about, you might feel more comfortable keeping it on your person, as this closet doesn't have eyes on it at all times. There weren't many outlets in the rooms, but plenty in the lobby. The rooms and bathrooms were fairly clean. Each room as AC control which you can shut off by opening the window if there is a nice breeze. Breakfast is cereal, a croissant, juice and a coffee (aka enough to get you going!). I enjoyed Oops and would definitely stay again.

Very friendly staff, ready to give advices, allowed me to change the room because mine had a communication door to the neighbor room, and my room was therefore very noisy (you can hear your neighbor breath...). The double rooms are quite expensive for one person alone, but same price if occupied by 2 persons. Very small rooms with one big bed and one chair, nothing else to put your stuff (no table, no wardrobe, no TV, no shampoo). Breakfast very simple but included in the price, the breakfast room is very small, better to go early for breakfast. Heating is quite at the limit in winter. Free wifi in the whole hotel, but often saturated. In summary not for couples or romantic stay, but ok for someone spending most of his time visiting paris and just needing a bed for the night.

Room Tip: The rooms at the top are the best (double rooms), street side is a bit noiser because of car traffic

I found it very clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful with everything we needed. The best thing about it would be its location. The rooms are okey, but to be used only for sleeping and showering. There isn't much room though if you want to sit in a day or two, isntead of going out.

Great for travelers passing through, would recommend if you're looking to visit Paris during the day. The common area has all sorts of appliances you can use to heat or even cook your own food. Breakfast is okey. Would not recommend for couples looking for a romantic stay or families.

Everybody was nice and friendly. The staff were friendly and gave us a really good recommendation of where to go. Rooms are quite expensive. Breakfast is included which is a bonus. Rooms are all on key card entry and there are additional small lockers for valuables. The location was great for us as it was on a direct metro line from the Louvre which was my main reason for being in Paris. I really appreciated that at every hour all was very clean (very important when there is a lot of people living together).

I spent about 5 days in this hostel and I can't complain. The hostel is very cool and clean, didn't feel like it was a hostel! Very near to Subway for any snacks and lunches and trains were one street away

Oops was a nice find in Paris, close enough to the touristy places while not being directly in it. It has friendly and helpful staff, decent breakfast included, it's close to various metro stations and the price is quite fair. The Wifi works in most places, but not in the third floor because "it's too far". Nowadays, Wifi is almost as important as bedding for where you're staying so, I would work on that.

Room Tip: Avoid upper floors in order to have a better internet connection.
