"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…"

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.

Liked: - The hostel is very well situated, about a minute's walk from Gare du Nord. I stayed here on three separate occasions on my latest trip and it was mostly because of how convenient it was to get to after a late flight or train. Convenient for getting to and from airports CDG/Orly, Eurostar, other major rail lines, and the metro - The rooms were clean, some of my dorm mates mentioned that it was the best hostel they'd stayed in - The private bathrooms were neat although, in one of the rooms I stayed in, it was quite small - The privacy curtains are a nice touch, as are the USB charging ports for each bed, which came in handy as I had misplaced my adapters along the way. I was very happy with the facilities in general. - The breakfast buffet was quite poor (a better bet is to go into any of the nearby boulangeries for a croissant or baguette) but if you are on a tight budget then it does save you some money - There is a bar where it is convenient to socialise with fellow travelers, but as others have mentioned, the band is not very good and the loud music that is otherwise played makes it difficult to have a conversation - The room keys make accessing the rooms easy and secure

Disliked: - Gare du Nord, with all its convenience, is not a particularly safe or clean neighbourhood - There does not seem to be any uniformity in the lay out of the rooms - The staff are not particularly friendly or helpful although they seem to try to be courteous - The elevators can be fickle - I was asked to move rooms with no prior notice or explanation. This was an inconvenience as I was visiting a friend the night before and had to come back in time to check out of a room that I had booked for several nights. I did not have another reason to be back at the hostel that early in the morning - When I arrived a little too early to check-in, I was asked to pay for a locker to store my things. I thought this fee should be waived considering I was going to be checking in that same day - The meals and drinks at the bar are quite expensive for a hostel although, of course, no one is forcing you to spend money here

Liked: The hostel was very clean and accommodating. There is a large bar / pub in the building courtyard if you're looking for cheap food or a place to party / mingle. The location couldn't be much better for train travel.

Disliked: There were no kitchens to prepare your own food. The house band was pretty awful (couldn't sing in tune or hold a steady beat) but they played the pub every night.

Liked: The front desk was very helpful with recommendations for places to eat. The provided breakfast was simple, but nice. The location next to Gare du Nord makes travel to and from the airport very simple.

Disliked: The windows of the dorm room did not open, so it was very hot and humid in the room – unpleasant. The door to the dorm room did not close all the way by letting it just close (you had to apply pressure), but it would appear closed. Our dorm room was left ajar multiple nights by accident. Nothing was stolen however.

Liked: I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The 8-bed-dorm I was staying in was very big and the beds were clean and comfortable. There was a curtain in front of each bed so you could have some privacy when you close it. The bathsrooms are in the hallway and quite clean. The breakfast was good compared to other hostels I stayed in: they offer bread, cheese, ham, jam, nutella, butter, cereals, orange juice,...

Disliked: During the day it was a little bit hot in the rooms but if you keep the windows opened it's okay. In the bathrooms it was especially hot because there is no window.
