Liked: Comfortable, clean and convenient. Good value for money. Close to Anvers metro. Friendly staff.

Disliked: Immediate area is a bit dodgey. Shower was functional but awkward to use. They charge for the extras, like lockers and towels. No bathmat so floor stayed wet after showers.

Liked: It was close to the metro, and easily accessible.

Disliked: They advertised free wi-fi, but it was incredibly slow, and only available in the Lobby. Also, they advertised free breakfast, but there was none. They provided bedsheets, but no towels. Most disconcertingly, I stayed in a 4-female dorm and felt uncomfortable leaving my bags there while I was out for the day, but the front desk wouldn't let me put them in the secure baggage room. They told me that "nobody steals here." Apparently the bag check service is only for people who have checked out. I could have stayed in a hotel with a private room for only 15 euros more, and had peace of mind that my bags would be safe. This was the biggest downside of the hostel.

Liked: After having stayed in other hostels in Paris, I was so happy with Village Hostel and wished I had booked it for my entire trip! I was only there for one night but the room was clean and bright, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was good, there was a nice little courtyard and common area, free wifi, breakfast included, secure and free baggage storage and friendly staff. The location seems great for young people, maybe a little rough at night, but the area is perfect for those who want to stroll around picturesque Parisian streets. Highly recommend.

Disliked: nothing.

Liked: The place is located well, and the staff were friendly. Just not the best value.

Disliked: Stayed in a female room for four. The bathroom did not seem to be cleaned regularly, smelled of urine, and the bunk beds were squeaky and had no ladder which could be a problem for some people sleeping on top.

Liked: close to metro station and walking distance to montmarte

Disliked: although they offered small lockers in the lobby area that could fit smaller items, no lockers were available in bedrooms for other larger things like clothes and such. wifi was also very inconsistent. it required login every time and was sometimes unable to connect.

Liked: Staff were so amazingly friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was just like being in a big home away from home. Breakfast was free and quite nice. Sacre coeur is so close to hostel, some rooms even have a view of it. Few minutes walk to train station. Kitchen facilities pretty good and having a fridge is handy. Supermarket up the road. Lots of restaurants and shopping super close by.

Disliked: The only common area was the eating area. No lockers in rooms (but did offer safety deposit box). Slightly dodgy area, so just watch your bags outside and beware of people on the street getting money any way they can.

Liked: The staff (are super awesome!), the atmosphere, THE LOCATION, the layout of the property (quirky and functional), the rooms, the view!

Disliked: Internet (that you have to pay to use) drops out every few minutes - which sucks when you're on a fifteen minute timer. The shower pressure is terrible and a lot of the power points don't work. That being said, I would still most definitely recommend this place! All this did not detract from how great a place it was.

Liked: We loved the location. We also loved the meeting area in the lobby. It was perfect for our needs.

Disliked: At first, we were unsure what to expect. The entrance did not strike us as a typical hotel entrance, and we were concerned that it would end up being just another hostel.

Liked: terrace was great to sit outside on a nice day. good atmosphere. staff were helpful, however only when prompted.

Disliked: WORST HOSTEL SHOWER EVER (and i've stayed in about 15 different hostels). the hairdryer in our room didn't work properly. the wifi was really bad. no sharp knives for cooking in the kitchen. only 1 hot plate and a microwave in the kitchen. breakfast was pretty average and the breakfast lady wasn't friendly at all. if you're wanting to walk to see things such as the notre dame etc, be prepared to walk for 1 hour. also, a 10 minute walk away from the hostel is the ghettos!
