Liked: Very clean!! Free breakfast was average, everyone got a small baguette and croissant, cereal and juice also available. Internet access, very friendly and helpful staff. Location is good, next to a major metro station 'republique', but a little far to walk from the main attractions. Overall great for the price, would definitely recommend to other travelers.

Disliked: Very small, no lobby or community space really.

Liked: The hostel had a bit of character, nice view out the window of a Parisien street. Generally quite clean as the room was cleaned everyday I think.

Disliked: The equipped shower was one of those you had to press constantly. Bunk beds were very low. Should have a safe for every one but the room was too small to do so.

Liked: nice atmosphere, friendly stuff

Disliked: the room is safe, but in the room there are no lockers. There is only a small safe, but for using you must pay again. The rooms are small (no place for bagage). In the night its a bit load and to lighty from outside.

Liked: Conveniently located, near shops, good wifi, the staff tries their best to help you...just don't ask difficult questions though...! I really appreciate the cleaning persons at this hostel. They do their best to try to keep it clean...of course when there is only 1 or 2 persons doing this job it can be difficult. They deserve a raise. For those people who posted bad reviews I just have to say this is not a 5 star hotel but a hostel, don't expect a lot but a simple place to crash. I will definitely will come back. Thank you all.

Disliked: They are doing some construction work at the Republique and it is currently dusty outside. People staying for long at the hostel should be asked to change rooms after a while.

Liked: Great location, friendly staff, cheap room, warm too, with breakfast included. My room was totally fine: clean sheets, good bed, great bathroom. Quite thin walls, but I always sleep with earplugs during trips so...didnt bother me at all. Free wifi, and internet in the lobby with 3 computers (wich where available a lot since everybody seems to have a smartphone these days, incl. myself...) Great little supermarket ten meters from the hostel, boulangerie just around the corner, a bunch of cheap restaurants there too. Metro= a five minute walk away (Republique).

Disliked: The kitchen is down in the basement, not very cosy, but ok; just not the place where you choose to relax for hours but then again: If your in Paris, why waste time in the hostels kitchen? Theres to much to see/do in Paris! Theres no common room except the lobby, wich is small and noisy, but then again: you cant have it all, and the hostel is a cheap stay, great location- walking distance to Pere Lachaise, Marais and (quite a long walk though, but I love walking) to Oberkampf, Goncourt, Belleville etc. so I would recommend it.

Liked: the front desk staff was very helpful,. ready to assist anytime of the day or night.

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.
