  • There is no free WiFi. Only one outlet in an 8 person room. Got bitten by spiders in bed.

  • Having to hold down a button to make water come out for a shower is stupid. Somewhere to keep your stuff dry while you shower would make a huge difference also.

  • Completely dirty. I had bed bugs bites everywhere on my body that I needed to go emergently in the doctor because of the allergic reaction. No facilities, no Internet, only one electricity plug per room. Extremely poor breakfast. Sound insulation poor as well

  • The was in prime location to the Lourve, a metro station and many bus stops. Overall this hostel is in good shape, it is exactly as advertised, a bed and breakfast provided for cheap price. I would stay here again if I was back in Paris! I felt safe in my 8 bed room, in the hostel in general, and in the neighborhood as a solo female traveler.

  • The hostel was clean, they drill into your head that it's a very basic hostel (and it was), but the location was great, the beds were decent, the place was clean, the staff was nice. Everything you needed was there (bathroom, shower, lockers were tiny bit there is a luggage room). Luggage wasn't very secure but because of this everyone trusted each other and left all of our bags out.... would have preferred a locker but whatever. You have to show a key card to come in every time (security).

  • I honestly hated this hostel. The site said ages 18-35 and there were people younger than 18 running around and making noise and people way older than 35 which just made the atmosphere weird. There were also so many school groups of rowdy, disrespectful kids who made the experience undesirable. Also, wifi isn't free AND it sucks. Terrible connection and does not work in any of the rooms. Toilet paper is almost always out and there's no soap in any of the bathrooms which made it gross. !3?:; agai

  • Every good location and very economical. No frills, you get what you pay for, so don't expect too much.
