  • The best location in Paris. We were 3 days in Paris and were everywhere by foot. Very very basic hostel just beda, showers, toilets and breakfast but it's really enough. Eat breakfast and go for seesighting ! Personally I need nothing more. Cheers

  • I went in for a good location and that's exactly what I got, literally 3 minutes away from the Louvre! I don't mind austere accommodation so this was great for me. The staff is really friendly and patient: 10/10. Probably take a portable battery for charging your phone because plugs are hard to come by (I expected that, though). The cleanliness was acceptable, sometimes the toilets smelled a bit or there was no soap/toilet paper but nothing that tissues and hand sanitizer couldn't solve.

  • The staff was very nice, especially Amar. However, the hostel lacks in comfort. The beds are hard, the blankets and very thin. Only one bathroom per floor. Also, it should have a bar and free wifi in common areas.

  • its really just a bed! it is clean and in a good location but very over-priced. as their not so welcoming"welcome mail" said, "for not so precious people" unfortunately is the price very precious! for 15 euro a night it would be ok, but for 25?? u need to pay for everything extra, wifi, lockers etc. the rooms have just one power socket and there is only one toilet per floor. if you are out and about all the time and dont need to charge anything, its an alright place to stay.

  • Amazing location. Basic services, but no complaint since they advise in advance. Already recommended it to a frien, for sure would go again.
