Liked: Great location, near Saint Martins Canal.

Disliked: Unfriendly staff who just looked miserable. Very cramped. No communal area where you can chill out. (Well, there is a dining area, but you would not really hang out there). No bar. No character.

Liked: Central location next to subway in a safe, vibrant location w cheap food options on the same street. Breakfast is solid and staff is friendly. This is probably your best bet in terms of value. Free lockers for valuables with electronic pin a nice touch.

Disliked: The one complaint I have is that each person only gets one sheet (you can lie on it OR use it under the unwashed blanket) which doesn't make much sense.

Liked: The location was great. It was close to the metro which was quick and easy to get around. The area was great with a few cute restaurants and cafes in the area. Although the rooms were showing quite a bit of wear, they were very clean.

Disliked: The rooms really showed their wear. The light above my bed was hanging off the wall with cables and cords hanging out (and of course not working). The bathroom door was peeling paint leaving a big mess on the floor. Online it says that towels are included, but when you get there they say there is a mistake on the website and that you have to pay.

Liked: Really close to the Metro and nicely situated in a cool area of town. Paris is too big to walk everywhere anyway but this hostel was close enough to bars, restaurants and other interesting sights. Internet was readily available and the breakfast wasn't bad!

Disliked: Not the best kitchen..could see it getting very busy during the high season. No common area other than the kitchen so made it hard to meet people. Good for a quiet night's rest.

Liked: Having never been to Paris before I found the hostel fairly easy by metro. There is some sights in the area of hostel that are worth seeing and others such as the Lourve and Eiffel Tower are a short metro ride away. The room was cleaned daily, it was a comfortable temperature, and the breakfast was filling.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: The interior is modern and very pleasant. All of the staff (with the exception of one) were incredibly friendly and welcoming. The overall atmosphere was great: I met new people every day at breakfast (included in price) and made lots of friends. The bathroom was modern and clean. There were computers and a kitchen and fridge/freezer available for use, as well as free lockers for valuables.

Disliked: There was no lock-up room for baggage during the day: it was necessary to leave it in your room. The rooms were locked via electronic card, but it is always possible that another guest could enter during the day and steal items belonging to others. Apart from this, there was nothing to dislike.
