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.

26 July 2010 Nandini would recommend this property

Liked: I had a four bedroom mixed dorm room with a bathroom. The room was small when all four people were in it, but the room was still very comfortable. There was a nice window that let cool air in but also kept out the noise of the street. The bathroom was clean and a good size. Everything worked great and the beds were comfortable. Sheets were clean, even if only one bedsheet was provided. Blankets were available in the cupboard if we needed them. Breakfast was great and large enough for a good size breakfast. Location is wonderful and lots of restaurants around, an ATM is just across the street and a supermarket is next door. Super hostel!

Disliked: The hostel's interent was really spotty and it was difficult to access it anywhere in the rooms. Even then, it was really slow. The computers available for use are also slow but their keyboards stick and the browsers only load Facebook and Gmail things. Not very good. But everything else was fine.

Liked: The staff were pretty nice and helpful, but that's about it.

Disliked: - rooms too small, hot and uncomfortable, the beds were made out of that outdated iron material, the sheets were thin, shabby, and not changed daily. if you're unfortunate enough to get the top bunk, you'd better have some great upper body strength because the beds don't even have ladders. - the breakfast served wasn't something to write home about either. - there were only three computers available, and given the number of guests in the hostel it was almost impossible to get on any of them. - situated near a busy road, noise damn near intolerable at night.

Liked: The female day receptionist is a gem, -- as helpful and friendly as you would expect a customer service representative to be.

Disliked: If you have questions, like, oh, what room you're supposed to be in or how to make your key work, don't bother asking the evening receptionist. If you can lure him inside from smoking cigarettes and talking on the phone to his friends, he'll just tell you the problems are what they are, and you don't need to worry about it. Look for other hostels before this one.

Liked: It has a very vintage feel to it. Although the rooms we were allocated was seen as small, but i was actually comfortable with it. Really submerges one into the Paris living culture.

Disliked: The room being a bit small...but then again most accommodations in Paris are small.
