Liked: It's close to Gare de Lyon station.

Disliked: Everything. The staff was moody, room was dirty (my bed sheet had blood stains on it), bathroom has no sink or mirror, half of my shower was in the cold water, breakfast is some cheap breads out of vending machine, and they charge you for wifi (3€ per hour )

Liked: realy nothing, only the location is good

Disliked: I am deffinitely not a person to which some dirt makes bad but in this case, it was too much even for me. Very, very dirty, in both the room and shared facilities. All is covered by old dirt not cleaned since weeks. On all floors,there is urin and toilet smell all the day. The bed linen was dirty, with old stains badly washed. I WAS IN A ROOM FOR 3, WITH TWO FOREIGN PEOPLE BUT WE ONLY HAD TO SHARE ONE KEY - so anyone of us coming late on the night had to wake up another ones in order to get in. THERE IS ONLY ONE ELECTRIC PLUG for 3 people in the room The room was on the 5th floor without lift - well, this is not the hostel°s fault. The personal is rude and unpleasant. They had confirmed me before on the phone that there was a lockable room for luggage and a safe-guard for valuable things, but it wasn´t. They only permitted me to let the luggage in front of the reception. They say the cleaning lady passes everyday, but apparently she only passes, but doesn´t clean anything....AVOID, AVOID, AVOID.

Liked: The colours were fun and playful and it was close to gare de Lyon train station which was convenient for what I was staying there for (which was a connection between a train from Marseille and transit to Charles de Gaulle airport.)

Disliked: It wasn't particularly clean. Breakfast was included in the cost but no discount or earlbird option was available when I had to leave before the starting time (not to mention breakfast was deflated pastries out of a vending machine). There was only one key per room of at least 3 guests which made coming and going, even just to and from the toilet or shower inconvenient. They charged 3 euro for the WiFi. They had 5 floors plus the main wIth no elevator. Definitely a pain for bringing up luggage (I was in the room very furthest from the entrance) but that wasn't so bad, the worst was if you wanted to say leave your key for your roommate while youhad a shoulder you would have to go up and down 6 flights. It wasn't super clean and the staffwwasnt super friendly. It was the cheapest place I found in Paris on hostelbookers so perhaps you simply just get what you pay for, and for travel, it was in a convenient location.

Liked: -price -no mold -do noot stay here longer than 2 night

Disliked: -most unhelpful staff ever (as if staying there anoys them actually) -didn't tell us about the "breakfast" or that we could rent a sheet to put between us & the blanket -"breakfast" comes from a machine, don't take a drink, invest your coins in the bread -cameras everywhere, at least 2 in every corner, made me feel so creepy -only 1 key per room, you have to get up at night, if someone comes at night -no sink at the toilet, you have to get back to your room or the "common room" to wash your hands -washrooms in bad state

Liked: Really nice location and neighbourhood. Not the very central, but still very interesting to explore. Direct metro line to the center, just 10 minutes to Louvre. In general this hostel is nice cheap option for backpacker in such overloaded city. Breakfast is very small and simple, but still enough to start the day.

Disliked: Just one key per room, so if one of your room mates comes late, he has to knock the door and wake up someone to open it. Just one socket per room. Also very basic facilities if you care about it.

Liked: close to the metro.

Disliked: Bad facilities and attitude, especially the manager. Besides, four people share one plug, and the wifi is 3 euro per hour. The surroundings is noisy at late night and in the early morning. It's one of the worst hostel I have ever lived.

Liked: リヨン駅から近い。 時間に余裕があれば、ノートルダム大聖堂まで川沿いを歩いて行ける。 スタッフは良い意味でも悪い意味でも、正にフランス的。 周りは意外にも静かです。目の前にノボテルホテルがある。

Disliked: 部屋のシャワーは使えないので、各階のシャワーを使用。 お湯がでるまで、数分かかり、しばらくするとまた冷たくなるの繰り返し。 ベッドのシーツはなく、ちょっと痒くなったので、ダニがいるかも?

Liked: Hostel tres confortable, paisible, tres bien situé . L emplacement est formidable pres de la gare de Lyon. Avant de reserver j ai lu des commentaires qui n ont rien à voir avec ce que j ai effectivement constaté.Rien à dire par rapport à la propreté tout est clean, le staff est très accueillant, le déjeuner est à partir de distributeur de boissons chaudes et de viennoiseries, on a droit à trois jetons mais on peut en avoir plus si on demande à la reception( dans mon cas il a été très gentil, me proposant le petit déjeuner dès le premier matin étant arrivée tot.) Je ne comprend pas les critiques à propos d une seul clef par chambre, je pense que c'est une question de sécuritée ainsi tout le monde est bien controlé avant de monter,imaginez on perd la clef et quiconque pourrait monter de toute manière la réception est ouverte 24h sur 24. Je donne un avis très positif sur mon séjour dans cet hostel.

Disliked: Rien de special, c'est bien et on est a Paris
