I don´t recommend this place, at all. Bad localization(except about the train station in front of the hostel, aven so the neighbourhood are dangerous), terrible rooms with so many bugs...I hated! Be very careful.

Hostel located near metro station and close to Montmartre. However, the district seems dangerous, so be very careful. Guys in reception was quite helpful. Except the fact, they had no clean towels and instead of that they gave us sheets. It was clean more or less, but in general, hostel looks very very poor. And no free wi-fi after 6...

Not for fussy travellers! + very friendly staff + cheap + you can come and go anytime + good location + clean Some aspects you should consider : - very little rooms, I stayed in a 3 bed room (1 3 storey bunk bad) - shower and toilet outside the room, one sink inside. Many reviews were about hot water,...

Super bedbugs hostel ever. I got a couple of hundreds of bites. Bed sheets are clean, but I screamed out when I changed it. It looks like thousands of mold points with whole mattress and a cushions. (No pillow) bathroom toilets are terribly filthy. They sprayed but it's completely meaningless options. I couldn't enjoy stay in Paris. Staffs are okay,but...

Location : A bit far from the city and it's located is a "ghetto" town. It is accessible via metro. Price : Amongst the cheapest of hostels but not worth paying for. Would rather spend more for come comfort Rooms : 5 friends stayed in a room with 1 double decker bed and 1 TRIPLE decker bed. So unsafe! Fortunately...

Staff is speaking english (not fluentlly, but easy to to understand), chanhing bed sheets, cleaning rooms, showers, kitchen. The thing that bothers is wifi, which is fee only from 9am till 6pm (other hours it's about 2€ for...

Better pay those 3-5 euros more and find cleaner hostel. If You don't have that kind of money to spend, better buy a sleeping bag and find some quiet place, anywhere, but in this dirty hostel. Believe me, even sleeping under the bridge is better than a week of itchy bed bug bites all over your body.

Pro: Next to a metro station, and a 5 minute walk to Nord Station. Cons: Everything else. Have to pay €3 for wifi after 6pm. Found lots of bugs in the rooms. Electricity goes off lots. You don't get an individual key for the room. The staff are useless and it doesn't feel safe and secure. Lack of bathrooms. Very...

I stayed at the hostel for 1 night only, I had no valuable possessions, my own towel and a sleeping bag so I avoided all the scary things people discuss in reviews. I had all boys as neighbors, whom I didn't even see, because I was too exhausted and fell asleep before they came. The area is dangerous, it's very...

Right so you have to pay for Wi-Fi between 18 and 0900. In this day and age it's simply embarrassing to make guests pay for internet connection. If be fine with paying an extra Euro a night if Wi-Fi was built into the price, but to claim to be cheaper with free WiFi and then limit it and charge extra?...
