  • I had a great stay: quite an amazing location, nice French breakfast, friendly staff.. The only minuses were the lack of lockers in the room and the size of the room - there wasn't too much space. Lockers could be found in the lobby though, but I'd prefer to have a lockable one located in the room. But I definitely recommend this hostel and I'm sure to go there again for the next stay in Paris!

  • Great hostel, great room, wifi everywhere. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. The hostel is near to a underground station and very well located. Will for sure stay there again when I come back to Paris

  • I loved this hostel. Everything you needed was nearby. I loved some of the people at the front desk, others were a bit standoffish. The beds were a bit scary, just because some of the bolts were coming off the beds and I feared I would mash someone in the middle of the night. But I loved how clean the bathroom was... That was my big thing.

  • This is my first time at a hostel and I was pleasantly surprised. It was a great value. Felt comfortable and safe. I especially liked having the private room with a/c and with our own bathroom.

  • The staff often gave incorrect directions. They did not regulate the after-hours loudness of the guests. The noise was unbearable!

  • There was BLACK MOLD IN THE BATHROOM! We completely avoided using it, which was ridiculously inconvenient. If they can take care of that, it would be a great place!

  • Clean hostel in a great location(10 minute walk to the top of Montmartre). Decent breakfast and friendly staff. 2 Cons: Every door slams. After the third slam, my brain kicked in and I remembered to hold on to it until it closes, however, some people go the entire stay slamming it every single time...Even at 3-4am.The other issue, internet. We did not have internet in our room even though they advertise it. Terrible connection in the lobby as well. Login required every time you open your phone..

  • Pros: Awesome hangout spot downstairs to socialize. Close to train station. Has a kitchen with everything you would need. Each bedroom has a personal bathroom that you share only with your room rather than the entire hostel. Cons: The area around the train station is quite sketchy. There was tons of mold growing on the bathroom ceiling. One of the desk receptionists was quite rude and sarcastic. One roll and tea is not considered breakfast. Overall I would recommend it.
