Liked: Literally opposite the metro, cute communal courtyard bit outside, cool style of decor inside.

Disliked: Only one key per room, shower and toilet was upstairs from our room as the one on our floor was padlocked, beds very noisy, probably not a good area to hang around alone.

Liked: 内装は個性的。Wi-Fiは9時から18時までフリーで部屋でも使用できる。 地下鉄駅の目の前でアクセスが簡単。

Disliked: 小さい見たことのない虫がベッドにいて気味が悪い。 ホステルの人が来て、薬剤らしきものをまいていたが、次の日もやはり虫がいた。 掛け布団がないため、持参していた薄い布を代用したが、夏でも朝は寒く、風邪を引いた。

Liked: I liked the location.

Disliked: Disliked how rude the owners where, that it says "free wifi" but it's very limited on when it's free and then you have to pay €3 to buy wifi, when I went to buy wifi I was told I was unable to. No sheets on the bed only bottom sheet, unstable and unsafe 3 bunk beds that the top was broken.

Disliked: It is very cramped and everything smells like damp. I was on top of a three level bunk bed that was difficult to get in and out of. I woke up to find bugs crawling on me. As a solo female I did not feel safe on the streets in the evening, let alone the night.

Liked: Nothing.

Disliked: It was small, felt cramped, no open areas/lobby/common room. But worst part was its location. It was in a rough part of France, loud, noisy, people fighting on streets, police arresting someone on the sidewalk, no where close to the section of Paris that one come a to see!

Liked: Not too far from centre of Paris

Disliked: There was only one shower head in the whole hostel, shared between 25 rooms (few of which, as far as I'm aware, are single rooms), so you either have to queue for ages or shower at weird times. To go to the toilet, you would have to go up a flight of stairs, where you would have to throw your used toilet paper into a bin instead of into the toilet, and then when you were done, you would have to go down another flight of stairs to wash your hands (without soap). You have to pay quite a lot for wi-fi in the morning and evening. The area is quite dodgy and there are a lot of touts around the hostel selling stolen goods.
