Liked: Centrally located and cheap (compared to other hostels in Paris). Friendly and helpful staff.

Disliked: It feels very cheap. There are many floors and no elevators. You don't have a bathroom in your room, but only one per floor. And once in the bathroom, there is no sink/faucet. You have to go back to your room to wash your hands! No wifi, only internet acces through their own old stationary computers, which had to be paid for. The breakfast consisted of coffee from a machine and pain au chocolat from a machine (Not freshly baked- not very good). I rented sheets- but I only got 1 to cover the mattress, and nothing for the cover... There are no lockers. You have to trust your room mates or be able to lock your suitcase. There was only one outlet in the room, and it was over one of the beds. So I could never , for example, charge my phone, when my room mate allocated in that bed was there.

Liked: The price and location of the property in Paris is excellent. If you are just staying for 1 night, it would be great.

Disliked: There is a closing time of your room so cleaners can come in between 11am and 3pm. This is very strange for a hostel to do. You also have no common area to hang out in after midnight. There is no lift, only stairs. You cannot print anything at reception. There is no wifi. you have to pay for the computers. It is not a social hostel to meet others. While cameras are everywhere, it was easy enough tot walk into the luggage room and take whatever you wanted.

Liked: unfriendly staff , dirty toilets

Disliked: The hostel forced us to leave our rooms from 11 in the morning till 3 oclock in the evening. I dont think it is normal. If we want to sleep more it's our right, we have paid for it. The hostel insisted that we should leave our room . It was weird.. I dont know what they were doing in our rooms from 11 to 3 .. I bet they were not cleaning... the hostel was quite dirty...

Liked: Location was right next to Gare de Lyon which is very good and there's a general safe atmosphere about the hostel.

Disliked: A few things: * Lack of powerpoints in the room. There was only 1 and it was way up high. There is a risk that things like phones may fall if you're not careful to put it cleanly on the small shelf provided. * No free wi-fi (available at cost) * Stairs were tight and for those on floors 3+ it may get a bit tedious carrying bags up.

Liked: Location.

Disliked: The place was nasty and staff were rude. There was NO WIFI available, and they charged 2 euro for 30 minutes of connection in a network that didn't work. Toilets were awful and the shower was cold. There were weird bugs in the room and there were no lockers.
