  • I am living in a 4 bed room. Meet some really nice roommates there. The light was broken but the staff repaired soon. The bathroom is great and large enough.

  • The hostel was perfect for what I needed. The room had some issues like a broken plug and light fixture, but the beds were fine and clean, the building itself is cool, and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast was French style but w/ plenty to eat and all very tasty.

  • Good place to rest! I did not spend much time in the hostel because I was out exploring Paris, but it was a great place to rest my head after long days and nights! The WIFI works well. There are no lockers in the rooms, but there are small lockers on the ground floor for valuables. The staff was friendly and helpful. Smooth check-in, smooth registration, great stay!

  • Room was very small and cramped however it was nicely decorated. The shower was great and the rooms were clean. There was no cleaning done while we were staying, however i found this good as we were able to keep our room the way we liked it. The staff were nice although we didn't interact much. The kitchen/dining area was reasonably sized and well equipped once you knew where to look! However just a warning the bunk beds have no railings at the side so it was a worry that people might fall off!

  • This place looks adorable on the website when you book it, and it's adorable when you show up, but it's really dirty. I found bed bugs in broad daylight (and if you've ever had to deal with bed bugs, you know they normally only show at night). I stayed there despite finding bed bugs the day I checked in, so I asked them to change my room...still woke up with bites in the morning. There were a bunch of stains on the ceiling of the room too....from who knows what?

  • I stayed in a 4 females room and the room was so tiny! it was hard to unpack my luggage. but other than that, its good. for the breakfast meal, there is no coffee placed (Only tea bags there) but you can ask the staff there and they'll pour you :)

  • The room was really small, they dont change the pillow cover. My mobile phone was stolen from my pocket (outside the hostel) so when I realized that I asked the staff to please call my number but they refuse it because obviously my phone was from overseas so it would be long distance, whatever... not very helpful. The good thing about this hostel was the breakfast, and the location. Next time I will do airbnb

  • There was only one sheet on bed with no top sheet which may not have been bad but they never change the blanket or pillow case when people check out. Elevator was so slow and clogged with maids cleaning supplies for hours after check out time. Kitchen was only common area and was cramped and very hot in dungeon like basement. Very dirty in rooms and lacked proper cleaning as I watched maids use only one cloth for all bathroom. Fridge was too small and two burner hotplate not enough. Eek
