Liked: Staff let us us sleep in TV room until our beds were ready, we arrived super early. Check in isn't until 2pm so it was nice they let us stay. Not sure about other reviews but we found everything was very clean and accommodating. Free Sunday supper too! There was always a free, hot shower, we never had to wait for others. Stayed three nights and the staff even helped us figure out how to get to our hostel in Paris. Def recommend :)

Disliked: Having to deal with messy travellers within hostel who don't clean up after themselves. Nothing about the hostel was a dislike.

Liked: The location is great; close to everything, New town and old town. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Convenient lockers provided.

Disliked: The unpleasantness of my stay here was mostly the fault of the other guests. The cleanliness of the hostel did leave something to be desired. The common areas lacked warmth. Would stay here again for a stopover, but not for the 4 nights I originally stayed.

Liked: Location and friendly staff.

Disliked: Rooms were smelly and there were a lot of stairs, which is really annoying when you're travelling with a big suitcase (hostel is located on the 4th floor, and then there are even more stairs to the individual rooms).
