Jacob Nichols thinks…

Liked: The location was good, close to Montmarte (although the area itself seems a bit dodgy) and the staff were really helpful.

Disliked: The toilets are only on the top floor and there's only two of them. Not ideal for late night stops. The Kitchen has a bit to be desired.

Liked: Nous avons détester cet endroit où nous ne nous sentions aucunement en sécurité puisqu'il semblais y avoir des transactions de drogues à toutes heure du jour et de la nuit. Des gens, tous des hommes, entraient dans notre chambre la nuit pour y faire du bruit et nous réveiller.

Disliked: Endroit très insalubre : moisissure, humidité, punaise de lits. Les autres chambreurs étaient presque tous sous l'influence de l'alcool ou de la drogue. Même après avoir parler au responsable de lhostel, il n'ont rien fait alors nous avons décider de ne pas rester la deuxième nuit.
