Best hostel ever
Very friendly staff, well located is a great stay
Manuel, us1 night trip
Good 6.0
Overpriced and anti social
Well beds r hard as rock social vibe irrelevant, better and cheaper off having a party in ur own room than down in the common area. They need to organize a actual luggage room as well vs. Small laying lockers when u vould simply lpck the door to the luggage room like every other hostel on earth does. Staff are not as qualified as need to tlbe eother. Typical unorganized uneducated uncompfy french place.

Good spot to stay, needs shower improvement
Great clean hostel, very welcoming, loved cafe & bar aspect. However, shower didn’t stay on and didn’t have hot water - not sure if this was because it had been used up by other guests but did make it uncomfortable, and the bed had some hair on the bottom sheet still. However, had a great location with metro line just in park above & quite close to most things, just be prepared for a hilly walk if you choose to walk! Overall a great experience with just a couple ways to improve the comfort.
