23 September 2009 Rebecca would recommend this property

Liked: The hotel was in a good location considering the price as Gard Du Nord station is a 2 minute walk away (Don't go to Gard L'Est as the instructions say - it's further away). The room was very small however with a slanting ceiling reducing the space further and the shower was also very small and 3 floors away from our room.

Liked: There were dirty whole floor carpet in the rooms, not very cosy. There were no showers for customers, at least we didn't find them, though we walked through several floors. It was a good one night emergency hotel, but I would not like to stay there longer. Staff was nice.

Liked: close to sub stations, clean bed sheets.Shower curtain was extremely dirty along with the walls. Since i asked to have it clean when the cleaning staff was not there, it never got cleaned. I can not believe that i paid extra money to have my own personal dirty bathroom.

Liked: considering that it is a one star hotel, I found the room nice and big.One thing though, it should be more clearly marked on your website whether the room is with shower or without - the room I had booked turned out to be without, and I was "lucky" to get one with shower but still without toilet for another 3 or 4 euros per night.

Laurence Wells

10 July 2009 Laurence would recommend this property

Liked: Right in the middle of Paris and served by buses outside. Near supermarket Leader Price. Nearby, China Express Nord, takeaway or eating in, serves good food for good prices, and the rugby-themed pub/cafe across the road from the China Express serves a good breakfast set meal at a reasonable price. Word of advice, when planning a trip around Paris, best plan it around the bus routes, not the metro. The hotel itself is small, but comfortable enough, if you don't mind the hustle and bustle outside, and the sirens of emergency vehicles, which appear quite frequently.

Disliked: Laurence left no negative feedback.

Gurpreet Jagdev

22 June 2009 Gurpreet would recommend this property

Liked: Firstly the hostel was tough to find from the directions givenon website. One needs to walk if you get down at Gard de E'st, so its best to get down at Gard de Nord and walk towards hotel. Its only 10 mins walk. The hostel was clean and we had a personal shower in our double room, but the hostel lacks the cloakroom. There was option to take breakfast at 5 euro per person extra, but you can also choose Mc Donalds which 5 mins walk. I can recommend this to someone who is looking for personal room at low cost.
