Paris stay
Rooms very extra small!!! Shower very extra small!! Bed sheet not very clean. Lift to go to rooms only 1 person fit . Not worse the price. more like Backpackers kind of place. the ONLY good things. is Front desk staff very helpful and friendly. Shame they have to deal with this kind of dirty place. Not easy for them. Big thanks to Front desk reception to help me. I won't stay there again.

Overall experience : not bad if you don't stay longer in the hotel. The location is amazing & quiet but the hotel is not as smart as its name suggest it to be. First day, once I got my shared room after 3 pm, I came to discover that the washroom window is not covered by a curtain and no curtain is installed around the bathtub. So front neighbours are able to watch you taking your shower naked and all water can goes to the bathroom floor and make you feel that you're in kind of swimming pool. I run to the front desk to advise them about the situation and find a solution : the former front desk agent just gave me some shit answering that he can't do anything to fix this issue BUT the new front desk agent who was in training helped me find with a fix, he provided me with a big towel and a bed sheet to use them to cover the bathroom window and take my shower peacefully. I appreciated it ! After this incident, the former front desk agent started harassing me that they need to check my reservation again cause they didn't get the payment from the website where I booked my room. I had to be firm with him and strongly suggest him to contact the booking website as my stay fares payment has been already taken from my bank account and I don't see what I can do else to fix this .. The housekeeper lady should learn how to talk to customers too (customer service please !) After the first day, everything went OK the following days ... Most of the front desk agents are nice & helpful.

Fantastic and family friendly!!
I stayed with my niece as we were in Paris partly to go to Disneyland, the staff were fantastic and so friendly. For those possibly going to Disneyland by bus the stop is just around the corner from the Hostel. There are a couple of small shops very close by and the kitchen area is equipped with most things you'll need. I'd definitely stay again if i return to Paris

This was second time booking with this hotel. The first time i had a private room. And things were okay i guess bit, the second time i was in a shared room with 8 people the bathroom was disgusting and the room was dinghy

Simple hostel close to Gare du Nord
Aside from it's location near Gare du Nord, relative security and friendly staff I experienced, unfortunately this hostel is not on par with the quality you can expect from other hostels in Paris. The rooms are very cramped and the bathroom showers even more so. I'm a small person and I struggled to use the shower properly. Although clean sheets are provided the bed mattresses are saggy and uncomfortable and I think they have an issue with bed bugs too. The beds themselves are old and noisy so it's hard to move in bed without making noise that wakes up others in the room. The lockers are tiny so they barely store many belongings safely. They have basic kitchen facilities with a microwave and sandwich press. However, I wouldn't stay here again.

You can hear the noise from the bathroom and the bed frame. Couldnt access to public bathroom at the -1 floor as you need the card after check out.

Cramped. Great for a day
Place is quite cramped. The place is by the main train station so it was great to get to your hostel quick. But definitely not the best place if youre planning for a comfortable stay for over a week. It's also close to the Montemartre (15 min walk) which was nice. They have lockers, AC.. just the bare essentials. The elevator is enough for 1 person. They have a spiral staircase thats small. The people were kind though!

Well located
Very well located with friendly staff. We stayed in a bedroom for 4, with our two children. Everything was clean but we found some hair on the bedding (the warmer top layer) for all four beds. There was an air-conditionning in our room, which was very much appreciated. Water was leaking from either our shower or our toilet and was accumulating around the toilet. There are no emergency exit stair nor sprinkers and the building has at least 5 floors (but I think that is the "norm" frequent in this type of typical Paris building). The Wifi was a bit tedious to figure out and most times pretty slow. Overall I would still recommend this hostel if you want to be near Monmartre and the Gare du Nord.
