"The location to the trains and restaurants was excellent, there were multiple train lines close by that made it really easy to get around. They also did "upgrade" me for free from a 10 person room to a 4 person room…"

Liked: The location is excellent, in the heart of Montmartre, close to the metro. The hostel is clean and well kept.

Disliked: The showers don't have enough pressure, they are more dipping than showering. Although there are lockers in the reception, they are rather small, only for the most basic valuables.

Liked: The location is just great. Many convenient supermarkets and shops in Montmartre. Very close to Sacre Coeur basillique. The metro station was just around the corner. There is a mini football table in the lounge area! The place is safe - the access is by electronic cards. Each person has a card. They also have lockers for personal valuables. I did not worry about anything while we stayed there. The staff is very helpful and communicative.

Disliked: Nothing in particular.

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.

12 September 2011

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.

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.
