"The room was nice and modern - loved the mini pod style of bed with your own plugs and light. Very comfy bed and a good breakfast which is included! Very close to the station - but not somewhere you want to be going out…"

Liked: The room was nice and modern - loved the mini pod style of bed with your own plugs and light. Very comfy bed and a good breakfast which is included! Very close to the station - but not somewhere you want to be going out late at night!

Disliked: Do not stay here on a Friday night if you want to sleep! The bar downstairs was very noisy until 2am (live band - which were very good - but not conducive to sleep!).

Liked: Very clean and in a good location. Breakfast is also nicer than what you usually get. Also seems very safe. Good for the price

Disliked: It was way too hot in the rooms. The windows cannot be open and I basically suffocated. Additionally, the bunk beds are very unstable and whenever someone climbs the ladder or moves the entire foundation shakes. There's also a large space between some of the top beds and the wall, which makes is VERY easy for you to fall a distance that's quite dangerous.

Liked: It has curtains to each bed and you have your own light and plugs. You have Wifi in the room and has no connection problem. Laundry room, elevator and locker room are convenient as all travellers would need. 4-bed dorm room is spacious and bright. New building, very near Gare du Nord train station.

Disliked: No outdoor sitting area, Air in the bar is not very fresh. Underbed locker basket and curtain are a bit noisy.

Liked: The room was really nice. It was spacious, and the beds were superb. Reading light, power outlet, etc above each bed, and there was a curtain, too. One of the best hostels I've stayed at, in terms of cleanliness and facilities.

Disliked: A little more pricey than other hostels I guess, but if you have money to spare, it's great.

Liked: Great location, only a minutes walk away from Gare du Nord station that has direct access (30mins) to CDG airport as well as European trains and pretty close to the the sights via the metro. Generous free breakfast buffet including several cereals, rolls with ham and cheese and butter/jams, as well as juice. Bar is nice and big with decent non-complicated meals (discount if staying in the hostel too). Rooms were spotlessly clean (we stayed in an 8 bed mixed dorm) and each bed has a curtain offering complete privacy, a light as well as 2 USB ports for charging devices (a very nice touch) and 2 regular sockets as well as a small shelf for placing items. Room itself was very spacious and also had a sink/mirror and a small table and a few chairs plus huge lockers for storage under the beds (although remember to bring your own lock!). I was initially unsure if the beds would be long enough for me (as I'm very tall) based on the pictures and videos but they are actually much longer when you see them in person. The shower/bathroom was fine too, room to put a change of clothes and in booths for complete privacy. There's free Wifi throughout the building including rooms and it works fine. Very decent price for an established hostel in a bustling area close to central Paris. Would highly recommend this to groups or to people wanting hotel type conditions on a budget.

Disliked: While the hostel is clean and provides great additions and amenities, I would not recommend it to solo travellers or to those looking to easily make friends. As it's a huge hostel belonging to a chain, it does mean there's not a lot of "charm" to the place. You rarely see the same people twice and it's more like a hotel then a hostel. The bar doesn't have much in the way of social events to get people interacting and it's too big to easily join groups. As I was travelling with a friend and also meeting other friends in Paris, it wasn't an issue but something to bare in mind if you plan on traveling alone and meeting people. Not really a complaint with the hostel itself, just something that comes with being so big (although more social events each night at the bar would improve this aspect).

Liked: Friendly and helpful staff, online check-in available, beds made upon arrival

Disliked: Location was near to train station, but not at all in a good neighborhood; pods made it hard for other guests to know when there were people sleeping and therefore didn't respect the noise level

Liked: I was impressed by the spotless cleanliness of the bathroom and overall facilities (I stayed in a 4-bedroom female dorm). The beds were comfortable and equipped with personal electricity/USB plug, light, etc. You guys really thought of everything a traveller could need! The breakfast was really good with a sufficient choice of cereals, bread, cheese, etc. The hostel is just right next to Gare du Nord, so very convenient for travellers arriving to Paris by train. I definitely recommend this hostel to any backpacker coming to Paris!

Liked: My friend and I went to Paris together for the first time and absolutely loved our hostel. The staff was hilarious and our room was way more clean than any of the other hostels we've stayed at. The hostel was 100 meters away for a major metro station too! It was perfect. Especially considering the price -- only about €18- per night.

Disliked: I didn't like paying to rent a towel but that's pretty standard in hostels.
