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: Absolute is in a safe area in a busy little area, so I felt safe walking to and from the the hostel. Its is also right across from a little supermarket and close to a lot of places to eat so you don't feel too far removed from everything.

Disliked: Nikola left no negative feedback.

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.

Liked: good location, good reception area, quite small all round but that is no problem.

Disliked: it was adequate and comfortable for the price. one thing - the window in our room overlooked the street and did not close properly so was quite noisy, making it harder to sleep.

Liked: The staff was very friendly and helpful and the free breakfast every morning was nice.

Disliked: The bathroom smelled terrible all the time. We had to keep the bathroom door closed otherwise the smell would permeate the bedroom. The shower was impossibly small and dark.

Liked: The location is wonderful. It's just a few minutes walk from metro so it is really convenient. And there are many restaurants nearby.

Disliked: Probably because it is just around the corner of a cross, it is noisy during the night and the light in the room is pretty dark.
