Liked: Stayed in a single room with private bathroom. Both room and hostel were spotlessly clean. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was very nice. Location is very good just 2-3 minutes from Gare de Nord, and around there are many cafes and restaurants. The hostel felt very safe and secure, didn't walk in the neighborhood at night, however it is an area that is usually busy and crowded the whole night long. The bar downstairs is very good. They also serve food, so perfect for dinner. Would recommend the Mexican Chicken salad!! All in all excellent value for money. Would certainly stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

Disliked: I traveled without laptop or smart phone, and there was no computer in the hostel where I could check something quickly had to go to the internet café that is close by.

Liked: The location is PERFECT - I got off the Eurostar, dropped my bags off and was able to start exploring Paris almost immediately! I booked a private double room and it was clean, tidy, secure and had great wifi reception. The staff were friendly, helpful and upon checking in they gave me maps of Paris and directions on how to reach the different sights in Paris. I also loved the fact that there was a direct train line from the metro to CHD airport. Overall, I was very happy here and would stay here when I return to Paris next.

Disliked: I didn't like the fact the check-in is only available after 2 pm. They do have a secure luggage room to store your luggage before check-in, but it costs to store your luggage in a locker there - the cost depends on the locker size you want and how long you want to rent it for. Also, the place is so popular, pretty much every time I went to reception I had to wait 5-10 minutes before one of the staff were free to talk to me. But at the end of the day, if these are the worst things, the place is a pretty awesome place to stay!

Liked: It was very clean and in great condition. The location was great because of the closeness to the metro that takes you to the airport and the main attractions. They offered various torus and activities that made it easy for me to see Paris, even while traveling alone. The rooms are great, with comfortable beds, and curtains that allow you to have privacy at night. Overall, I was super happy to be staying there!

Liked: The double room is good, small but enough for what you need. The bar down stairs is great fun during the evenings with a different theme every night and resonably priced drinks. A great place to meet other travellers and relax. On a whole the staff have been very helpful and we ended up extending our stay

Disliked: Whilst the hostel is convenient if you are arriving from gare du nord train station it is pretty removed from other sites if you want to work, however buses and trains are available

Liked: Very close to the train station, plenty of food and bars nearby. About a thirty-forty minute walk from the Louvre and Jardeins di Toulleries.

Disliked: The hostel was HUGE which made it hard to actually meet people. It was incredibly hot at night with no air conditioning. When I arrived the computer system for the room keys had shut down and they were handing out physical keys, but these didn't let you ride the elevator.

Liked: The safety and access of the room by secured card key. The reception staffs are polite and friendly. It is a very good impression for the new comer to feel comfortable.However, the staff at bar's courtesy were basic, think they were tired? I would give a star to the reception staff but not the restaurant/bar staff.

Disliked: Too private until would not able to know who is the dorm mate. Anyway, this is an individual stayer's character; hence, not the hostel's issue.

Liked: Had a bar so great for meeting fellow travellers. Clean, tidy and very secure, had both 2 charge points and 2 usb ports per dorm bed which is excellent, also had curtains on bed, a reading light and a massive locker storage that will easily fit a suitcase. The dorm of 8 was spacious, not too hot or too cramped. Easily got wifi on 4th floor.

Disliked: Drinks are expensive, even in happy hour. So 2-4-1 on Corona sounds great, but if 1 bottle of Corona is normally €8, its still too expensive, particularly for a hostel! The area is a little shady, which although is to be expect as around a train station. The price is quite expensive for a hostel, even in Paris.

Liked: The rooms are fantastic. Each with their own curtain for each bed - which is a nice addition when you have been staying in open bunkbeds for weeks. Rooms are very clean, well kept and comfortable.

Disliked: This hostel is very large and therefore lacks the intimate social atmosphere a smaller or medium size hostel offers. The common room is a bar so in the evening if you want to sit around and talk you really have no common space to sit back and relax. The hostel Is great but has a cold atmosphere if you aren't there for the party.
