Will have everything you need for a cheap stay in place 2 min away from Metro. The mattress are a little thin and the bunk beds wobble a little but the sheets at very clean. The bathroom is small but has a great shower.

Wonderful place to stay, clean and comfortable rooms, high speed and free wi-fi available all over the hostel. Friendly staff and wonderful location - 3 minutes walking to and from Gare du Nord where you can get transport to all sides of Paris. Surrounded by restaurants, market, stores and pharmacies... Great place to stay!

This hostel is pretty close to Gare du Nord, but the surrounding area is a bit complex. I got pickpocketed right after I walked out of the hostel at 7pm, so if you stay here and want to wander around the area in the evening, be careful! Our room was nice enough for the price. The shower was clean. The...

Have stayed in over 50+ hostels in the past seven months and this one is only so so, wouldn't stay here again if I come to paris. The rooms are tiny, squeeze way too many of us into one room. The water for the shower cold both mornings, one bathroom for a room of six, had to wait about half...

Very convenient location just a short walk away from Paris gare du nord! 24 hour reception with easygoing staff. There is a cute little small lift so you don't have to worry about your heavy luggage. The room is okay, toilets are clean and the beds are comfortable. Ideal for a short temporary stay.
