Liked: Staffs were nice

Disliked: They faked their facilities.They described themselves as 'kind of old school', but they were just 'old'. All the facilities and system was old. I was quite surprised they only have ONE KEY for each room, and it was pretty uncomfortable.

Liked: The location is really good, 10 minutes walk from Louvre, or less, and 3-4 minutes walk from the closest metro station, Louvre Rivoli. The place, in general, is clean and has a great atmosphere, there's a small market close to the hostel, so it's really helpful if you need to buy some food late at night.

Disliked: There's no free wi-fi, 3 euros for 2 hours, so that kinda made me upset. Also, there's no kitchen. Only one plug for 8 people in the room. Hard to deal. The shower has a problem, too, you need to push the button every 30 seconds, so that might be a little bit annoying, and there's only 2 showers and 1 toilet for more than 20 people, I didn't need to wait, but maybe I was lucky.

Liked: Great location, but not on a street on the free maps. Quaint & simple. Great if you travel light and are out of the suggested age range- you don't need any perks.Standard bedding.

Disliked: Very Parisian and stuck in the 19th Century. Reception was very cold and not friendly or inviting. When I asked if they could email me when a package was delivered, they could not because they don't have computers. I was also not called when said package was delivered.No wifi, even in the common area. Does not take credit cards.Of the 12 one-time use security lockers for the whole hostel (yes, 12) in the unsecured luggage/house computer area, 4 of them were broken, and after alerting the staff, were unable to keep my small items behind the desk and told me that I should keep my valuables on me.Only 1 key per room, which stays at the front desk when everyone is gone.No stool or stand of any kind in the shower to place soap.No toilet seat. They must think we're all supposed to squat.I felt like I was being looked down upon by the owner (or manager) and the kitchen lady like they expected us to be proper locals. In all fairness, that 1 old lady was running the whole kitchen, which involved pushing the button for coffee or hot chocolate (apparently too much responsibility for the guests), wiping down the tables, washing the dishes, refilling the food, and telling everyone not to eat with trays on the table.

Liked: Location and the reception staff.

Disliked: The mattress, the toilets, the breakfast staff, the price. I don't think I expected too much. I expected stairs and basic accommodation but this wasn't basic - it was horrible.
