Hankin Chick thinks…

"The view here is excellent. Everything's very clean. There is a nice background music system in the hallways. The free breakfast is excellent, staff at the kitchen are nice."

Liked: Located in the lovely Montmartre area very close to Sacre Coure. Also close to the Metro which is all good. Breakfast was decent but was free. Place for the cheapest pint I could find in Paris, €3.50 during regular € 3 during happy hour. Oh, and a free crepe. Rooms were a bit tiny but adds to a nice feel and atmosphere the hostel brings along. For the cheap price, this is a very great place.

Disliked: Simon left no negative feedback.

Liked: This hostel had a great atmosphere for meeting other travellers around the reception area where the wifi is and in the bar. The bar has really cheap drinks and the batman is friendly. The location is excellent.

Disliked: Our room was very small and a little damp on the walls. It would have been could if wifi reached the rooms. Thicker blankets would have been beneficial, as would ladders to reach the top bunk beds.

Liked: Great location and character, good prices. We booked two beds in a 6 bed dorm for 5 nights but there was an overbooking or they made some mistake so we could stay in a twin room for the same price. It was a square deal.

Disliked: We get the same breakfast every morning. It was tasty and more than enough but a little bit boring.

Liked: None

Disliked: One of the staffs was unfriendly. They couldn't be bothered to give you any information and help. The bed was extremely uncomfortable making noises all the time and there is no rail on the side of the top and no ladder to go up. The room was some kind of small with bad sound proofing. You can hear all the noises from outside and the next door. You cannot get hot water in the morning, and even you take shower at off peak time, the water is either boiling or freezing. They removed our stuff without any authorization during the clean time. The location is far from centre, and they lock-out the hostel before 2 AM even on the weekends, the worst thing is they change the time just because "You are not making the rules." (literally said by one of the staffs) which is according to the staff's mood. So it depends on the luck you can get in or not in night. Importantly, when the hostel is locked-out, the only place you can stay in is your room because you are not allowed to access to all the common areas. I down to the earth do not recommend Caulaincourt Square Hostel, such a bloody exceedingly unfriendly hostel.

Liked: The complimentary breakfast was awesome, cereals, fresh croissants and breads, toast, and both hot and cold beverages. There were also free crepes offered in the evenings. The property was beautiful and very clean, staff was very nice (front desk people get grumpy when tired) and the room was great.

Disliked: A little bit tricky to find, make sure you really know where you're going and how to get there!

Liked: Good bar, nice atmosphere and very clean. Staff were always willing to help. Easy to find from the metro too and near shops etc. not a bad area but lacking in character a little. Ensuite bathroom for just the 4 of us with a good shower. Free breakfast if you can get up.

Disliked: Like everywhere in paris it is overpriced for a dorm. Cleaners try to get you to leave the room between 11 and 3, well I got in from a night out at 10.30 so they let me stay in bed but it is a bit much expecting everyone to get out. But it is nice place. The bars near by seemed quite , well, shit, but metro over to the Latin quarter easily.

Liked: Very good location, great to have breakfast included (a roll, a croissant, juice, coffee, jam, butter, cereal, milk). There is a lot of space in the bar downstairs!

Disliked: There are no lockers and the only thing to secure your valuables is leaving it at the reception, which does not seem the safest place either. Lockout for 4 hrs is a bit of a pain...

Liked: Good location. Good atmosphere for meeting fellow travellers.Close to metro. The best value central accommodation in Paris.

Disliked: Rooms are a bit small for the amount of people they accomodate. But for the cheapest and most central hostel in Paris, it's nothing really worth complaining about..

Liked: Location.

Disliked: The staff are not friendly and helpful when they have to give you any kind of information. They seemed desinterested to provide tourist information and recomendation about the city. They treat their hosts like they are doing a favour in accepting them in their place. Furthermore, is important to note that they close their doors at 2am in a city like Paris and it is only open again at 6am! Two other relevant points were: the curtain in the bathroom was nasty and my mattress had a hole in the middle. To conclude I did not stay the last night with them, but I paid for all nights. I asked the receptionist if it was possible to reimburse me (total or partial), once in their website there is no clear cancellation policy. They told me to send them an e-mail which was supposed to be answered by the manager and I did it twice, but they´ve never replied me. In my point of view this shows a complete disregard for their hosts.
