Ok option if you are booking late
Good rooms and beds and near metro but you have to pay for luggage storage, there is no kitchen and sometimes no toilet paper.

The McDonalds of hostels
Spent 6 nights in this large hostel which lacked character and felt too geared toward profit making. The beds are quite good and have usb ports and a shelf for each bed. Toilet, shower and sink in the room and it was good that they were separated. There are supermarkets and ATMs very close but the main tourist sites are not within walking distance and will be 20-40 mins by metro. The hostel is right opppsite a metro station and is within walking distance of a couple other stations on other lines too. The main issues were that: sometimes the showers ran out of hot water, the front desk and cafe/ bar were sometimes understaffed, there is no kitchen and the menu for eating within the hostel is mainly western rubbish at high prices. The toilets ran out of toilet paper at times too.

Standard hostel, couple of negatives but ok
Hostel was average, nothing really to speak great about. The location is far from main attractions such as Eiffel Tower if you are planning to visit. Food very expensive for a hostel and you can’t bring your own food which is silly as people are normally staying in hostels to save money. Bed mattress was relatively clean but actual bed (the metal part) had hairs and rubbish. If you wish to stay be prepared to compromise on a couple of things. My room was also mixed up a couple of times resulting in lots of changes but the staff were helpful.

Great Hostel, where is the kitchen?
Can I rate my roommates on how awesome it was that they woke up super early just make all the noise in the world, nice shower maybe turn on all the lights, open up all there bags maybe slam the shelves a few times. Meanwhile thinking awesome now that I’m wide awake they will finally leave the room and check out, nope they sat in bed with there light on putting on make up for 45 minutes, here’s the kicker, they went back to bed and slept all day. ( shout out to people who suck)

My stay
The room rules are not that nice. It is very clean the staff is friendly. In the front of the hotel I’ve seen strange people who made me feel not safe. It is very close to the subway Colonel!
