I booked for one night at this youth hostel for our layover in Paris. I just read after that they could refuse you if you are 30 years and above. Both my husband and I are over 30 years so I emailed the hostel just hours after making that booking that we don't want to stay there and to just...

It was the worst hostel experience I've had in my life. I strongly recommend not to stay in this place if you are looking for a good experience in Paris. 1.

Horrible attention, bad beds and a horrible shower. We did not have a toilet in our floor and the "wi-fi" promised did not even work. The breakfast was a bad joke and really bad. It is not even secure, I saw that a girl lost her camera in the luggage storage Look for another hostel!

We booked a private room just for my girlfriend and I, and what do we get? BUNK-BEDS! We are a grown couple and we get bunk-beds in Paris, which is supposed to be romantic. Furthermore, we had a 'shower' in our room, with less water pressure than a tap, and absolutely disgusting surface on the floor. We had no toilet...

Before I embellish on the headline, let me share some other frightening details about this establishment: 1. WiFi only works between 12:30 pm and 1:00 am. 2. You have absolutely no access to your room between the hours of 12:00 pm and 4:00 pm (even if you're staying in the same room for multiple nights) 3. The bathrooms are such...

The hostel is horrible and the staff does an effort to make it worst. Wifi besides beeing slow is shut down between 1:30 am to 12:30 pm, we never understood why. No one in the staff speaks a fluent english. Although people on the front desk are nice, the breakfast guy seemed annoyed with our visit. On our check out...

The staff is very unfriendly, you have to leave your room the whole day ( from 11 am until 3pm) you can't go in your room at that time and they catch off your key. The wifi only works from 12.30 until 01:00. I visit 21 hostel before this one but this is the worst experience i had.

Staying in Bercy / Nation

Neighbourhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make their homes.
