Liked: By far the best hostel me and my friend stayed in in Paris. They upgraded us to a room by ourselves with a balcony for no extra charge. Whether they over booked or not, doesn't matter. They were super firlendly and helpful! Also, the breakfast selection was great, there was wifi in the room, and the location was super close to a metro and surrounded by delicious bakeries and cafés.

Disliked: Honestly, compared to other hostels in Paris, nothing.

Liked: I would highly recommend this hostel. The staff were helpful, the included breakfast was very good, the facilities were excellent and it was very clean. I was shocked with the quality of the hostel as Paris has a reputation for unclean, poor hostels. The location has an easily accessible metro station & I found many sites to be within walking distance, however I enjoy walking. I also met some great people whilst staying at the hostel.

Disliked: Only criticism, and its being very picky is that the shower is a push shower, meaning your continuously pressing the button to keep it on. However I don't think it detracts from the hostel.

Liked: Staff, Location, breakfast was good but it should start at 7AM.

Disliked: The toilet was leaking water, so the bathroom floor would always be wet. Also, they don't give you a clean new blanket the warm blankets are previously used by other people.

Liked: The room was clean, location great and it is a welcoming place to stay in Paris. Not much wrong with this place. Stayed for one night and it was fine for me.

Disliked: I didn't see a common room, but I might be wrong as I didn't stay to see the area which they do breakfast - so if you're travelling alone and with a need to unwind with a beer and meet others occasionally I'd recommend staying somewhere else in Paris if you are planning an extended visit.

Liked: At the time as living in the hostel was installing locker in the lobby. Those are very small locker. The only safe it is in the room it shares between the people in the room. The size of the room it is small but normal for Paris. Nice clean room. The only thing could say no lounge room. The only common room it is kitchen in the basement with just table and chairs and no WIFI. Nice location at place de la Republique 5 line of metro running so get quickly anywhere in the city

Disliked: Sebastien left no negative feedback.
