  • Cheap hostel in a very good location, close to Gare de Lyon and Seine river. Quiet location, in front of a luxury hotel. But small rooms of 4 beds with shower and restrooms on the floor. Breakfast included is minimalist with 3 tokens to get industrial food and drinks from a vending machine.

  • Do not have the wifi in the room. So strange, but only one key for everyone who is living in the room, every time you gotta give out it on the reception, when you leave the hostel.

  • I would never come back to this hostel!! They have bed bugs that almost ruined my stay in Paris. I woke up the following day full of itching red points all over my body. When I spoke to staff they just said they didn't know about and gave me new sheets as if it was going to fix the problem. My second night was horrible, I basically needed to stay up all night to avoid getting bitten. You have to share the room key which makes it uncomfortable for the roommates especially at night

  • -Small and cramped hostel conveniently located next to Gare de Lyon -Highly inconvenient: no free wifi/no sockets in rooms/no lockers -The bathroom door had no lock (?) & was not very clean -Highly inconvenient as you have to be out of the hostel between 11:00 and 15:30 for cleaning, which was not even apparent afterwards -Not a great social atmosphere ea
