Nelson Wang thinks…

"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.…"

Liked: I liked the vibe of this hostel because there were always travelers hanging around the lobby just chatting and during breakfast was a great way to meet people as well. The breakfast itself was quite good as well.

Disliked: One thing I didn't like was how tiny the rooms are, it felt very cramped for four people and there was no space to put anyone's luggage.

Liked: The breakfast was really nice, and they have computers with free internet.

Disliked: The room was really tiny. I was in a room with only 4 beds, but it would be small even for one person. The street was very noisy, but it was good to come back at night walking from the metro station because there are some bars on the way to the hostel.

Liked: Nice staff, Cool building. Close to Metro, and good instructions given on how to get there.

Disliked: Bathrooms were superficially wiped, but were in desperate need of a thorough clean. Room pretty small for 4 beds (2 sets of bunks).

Liked: Staff were helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and tidy, including bathroom. We met some really cool people staying in our room so it felt very safe. Directions were fantastic- very easy to find hostel. Breakfast was kickass!

Disliked: The breakfast room was very crowded and we had to wait with our food until a place opened up. There were limited cooking facilities in terms of cooking utensils, but you could make a simple meal.

Liked: The staff was really helpful and nice, really close to the Metro (and from there, you can go wherever you want in Paris), nice rooms, though a bit small (I stayed in the 4-bed mixed), average bathroom, nice breakfast.

Disliked: The neighbourhood was OK, but the thing with Paris is that it's a huge city, so everything is a bit far from everything. Other than that, it's a great hostel.

Liked: Nice, friendly staff.

Disliked: Everything was very "narrow". The lobby, hallways, lift and the breakfastroom. On the topfloor they had a lot of stuff standing in the hallway, so very hard to pass by. The room was way to small for 3 beds. No storage room for luggage on departure day.
