Liked: I really like the curtains over every bead, and the individual outlets and USB ports as well. This was nice.

Disliked: The bathrooms were not that great. My bathroom (5th floor) always had a stopped up drain, so flooding was common. In addition to that, the light timer cuts off in the middle of a shower and you have to come out Naked to wave and cut it back on. Very weird thing to do in a publicv bathroom. I understand the reasoning, but the execution sucks.

Liked: This is very close to Gare du Nord, so that's convenient. But if you prefer a neighborhood more secure, I would recommend going elsewhere.

Disliked: The reviews are optimistic. The facilities were not well maintained at all - shower overflowing, female bathroom on my floor outright closed for the whole three days I was there 'under maintenance'. Rooms are extremely humid and AC is literally the loudest thing in the room, can't even hear people talk next to it. I tried asking the reception to fix things - they seemed to know how to be polite but condescending under a poorly faked friendliness. My room had an extremely loud buzzing noise and when I told the front desk, she said she didn't know anything to be like that. Well yes, that happens to be why I went to tell her. At night, the music from the bar is so loud you can hear individual tracks and people singing along. People seemed to hook up in the bar a lot, so if you wanted to go to Paris to party in the hostel and get with someone instead of being in the city - then go for this place. Pretty sure it wasn't just me either - I've stayed at extremely cheap and uncomfortable places in many places, and this is not worth the price. Many folks I bumped into in the elevator also voiced their concerns at poor management and lofty attitude. It seems they have gotten complacent from the good ratings by party goers.

Liked: Really comfy beds, love the privacy curtains and that each bed gets its own power point.

Disliked: Didnt feel all that safe walking from the station (Gare du Nord and Gare l'Est which are both bery close)to the hostel. Area had a bit of a grubby feel.

Liked: Great location right next to the metro station! Easy to find and great staff. Fun atmosphere, would definitely stay here again.

Disliked: A few of the restrooms were having maintenance done, limiting the available showers, so I had to wait a while to shower in the morning.

Liked: The atmosphere was young & fun. It was cool having Belushis downstairs, enjoyed the music on Wednesday night. The staff were helpful and friendly. They cleaned our room well and left us new towels.

Disliked: Our private room was a little small. It was pretty much a bed and a tiny bathroom, but not a big deal because we didn't spend much time in there other than to sleep.

Liked: Trevlig personal, nära till tågstationerna Gare Nord och Gare Est, gratis frukost, bra tvättmöjligheter, bra rum där man kan dra för, för sängen, bra med restaurang och bar,och även livemusik.

Disliked: Toaletterna och duscharna var lite så där, men de höll på att renovera badrummen så förhoppningsvis blir det bättre. Området var, förutom närheten till tågstationerna inte alls bra.

Liked: Generally well organised, clean, safe, good location

Disliked: Nearly all the rooms overlook the bar which is VERY noisy - I never normally have difficulty sleeping. If you close the windows it gets too hot to sleep. If you ask they will move you to a room that doesn't over look the bar. Also rather petty - they want to sell you beer, so don't allow any alcohol to be brought in, and actually check bags sometimes!
