"The only good thing about the place was its proximity to the metro station. Although at night this area was crowded with a lot of people selling all sorts, and was quite intimidating at night for two younger girls."

Liked: The only good thing about the place was its proximity to the metro station. Although at night this area was crowded with a lot of people selling all sorts, and was quite intimidating at night for two younger girls.

Disliked: The room was extremely dim and grimy. You could see how damp it was from the peeling wallpaper and when you got into bed, the sheets felt wet just from how damp it was in the room. The kitchenette area was disgusting, so we avoided that completely. I understand that we paid a small amount compared to a lot of places in Paris, but I would have at least expected a clean place to stay.

Liked: The cheap price.

Disliked: The place was dim and dirty. Even though the receptionist was a happy and smiling guy, he didn't take a moment to explain me the basic stuff (where is the room/shower/kitchen/tv-room/breakfast , check-out time, what to do with the key (only one for the whole room), when, where and how is the breakfast etc. etc.) nor I wasn't given clean sheets (there were dirty ones on my bed). No toilet paper in the toilets and no sound insulation. Very hot in the rooms (despite the open window which didn't help with the noise at all). Luggage room smelled mouldy so I didn't want to leave my stuff there. Kitchen was dirty and besides the very basic stuff, it wan't "well-equipped" at all. Of course people choosing the lowest price price possible can't expect much but now I didn't get even the minimum (=good night sleep in a clean bed).

Liked: The staff were friendly and we got a good nights sleep as we were in our own room.

Disliked: It was a bit run-down and the area that it was in was awful, it is situated around Gare du Nord which is not a very inviting area for travellers, especially when its your first destination!
