Liked: Has a great shabby chic look and feel to the place. I was staying in an 8 person dorm but they had divided the room in half which was brill for a bit of extra privacy. There was a sangria night whilst I was there too and the communal area is good for meeting people. Great value.

Disliked: The lockers were in the communal area - personally I would have preferred some to be in the rooms. It would be useful to advertise the activities going on in the hostel a bit more.

Liked: I interacted mainly with one girl when I arrived; I don't remember her name but she had bed hair and a multitude of accessories in her hair which suited her. She was AMAZING! Friendly, knowledgeable, engaging, and an all-around superb staff member. Aside from the staff, the place itself was sooooo cute! I loved the atmosphere! The lobby is huge with plenty of sitting; video game systems; and music playing throughout the day. Fridays are Sangria night!! Delicious sangria!! Great way to get to know people. The location is also great! Just 2 blocks from Rue St Catherine.

Disliked: Lenin left no negative feedback.

Liked: Nice atmosphere. Lots of fun lively people around, lots of common space to relax. Free breakfast, laundry and wifi/computer always nice. Well stocked kitchen. Good location.

Disliked: Furniture and buildling definitely had the artsy/recycled vibe. I kinda liked it but if you are looking for hotel-style look elsewhere. Sometimes hard to find a staff person when you needed something (at check out for example). Only one shower for many people if staying in cheapest dorms.

Liked: Great value for your money. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Everything was clean. I liked the decor and atmosphere. Simple breakfast included (toast and fruits). About 5-10 minute walk to the metro.

Disliked: Visibly old and a bit run down (can't shower right after using the toilet because there is no water). No lockers in the rooms (on the main floor). There is no AC but a fan in the room. We had to leave the door open most nights in order to keep the air circulating or else it would get too hot and humid to sleep. However we were there for a particularly hot weekend (35+ degrees).

Liked: Had a homely feel and character. It didn't feel like some hostels where they just want to cram as many people in as possible. I liked how the 8 bed dorms were actually divided into 2 separate 4 bed rooms - made it feel more spacious. Free laundry was great, wifi good, comfy couches, really friendly staff, activities, free breakfast, lockers. very convenient location.

Disliked: The room I was in got a lot of traffic noise from the street - but if you aren't a light sleeper this probably wouldn't bother you! Earplugs fixed this for the most part.

Liked: Das war das erste Hostel, indem das Wäsche waschen inkl. Waschmittel umsonst war!! Das frühstück war reichhaltiger als gewohnt, es hat einen Riesen Aufenthaltsraum zum zusammen finden, zwei wunderschöne Dachterrassen und die Lage ist einfach unschlagbar.

Disliked: Sie sin zwar am renovieren und überall am arbeiten, aber im Moment haben die sanitären Anlagen einfach nicht gereicht und waren viel zu weit auseinander. Außerdem haben Krimmer keine Klimaanlage, was an einem Tag mit 37 grad schon unangenehm ist...

Liked: Cool communal area on the ground floor where there's always people hanging out. Plenty of sofas to crash on, TV w/ Nintendo 64, stereo, wifi etc. Easy to meet people, chilled out vibe. Plenty of space, both in the communal room and the dorms. Alexandrie is not like some other hostels I've stayed at where they simply cram as many beds as they can into the smallest possible rooms. 8 bed dorm was separated into 2 rooms of decent size. Also, the staff were very accommodating to a guy that's lost almost all his French-speaking skills!

Disliked: Some parts could do with a new lick of paint! Some might say it adds to the charm. Shared bathroom in the dorm was a little bit grimey but was certainly bearable.
