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: 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.

Liked: It was relatively cheap and I had a place to stay. There were croissants for breakfast and I was able to use a computer when I needed to. The rooms were also safe.

Disliked: My bathroom was missing a lock, which wasn't helpful. Also, the front desk staff did not speak much English. There isn't a central meeting place, which made it hard to hangout in the hostel at night. Locaiton was not convenient to the main tourist points of the city.

Liked: It was a good location, close to the station and a nice area. The girl on the desk was really helpful and friendly. It was cheap for Paris. The room was bright green (which was odd) but it was still a nice atmosphere. I don't know why but I really liked it.

Disliked: It looked like it could do with a little fixing up... but it all adds to the character I suppose.
