Very good
Middle / Property

Furnishing and decoration very well. The private room for 8 was clean, rather comfortable, convenient with lockers for storage. Hostel quite quiet and silent. Well connected by metro. Check-in done at 0:15, it is a positive point. However, price a little excessive: 113 € 2 nights early July, at this price, we would like to have the breakfast included. The entrance to the inn very dirty. The check-in be careful: they register your card on the internet by taking the number of the card and the visual Cryptogram, we did not like it at all. Finally, little reception service in French. We would love to go to the terrace, but beware it's only a few days a week and at very limited times.

Everything went very well. Small downside however: soundproofing with the outside to review because very noisy!

A very comfortable place steps from the metro

Despite being a youth hostel, it has a very comfortable hotel dynamic, with elevators and a bar on the first floor. The only problem I had was that men regularly entered the bathroom that was exclusively for women

To avoid if you are looking for a purely Parisian experience

Clean and comfortable rooms but no atmosphere, no impression of being in France. We could be in Paris, New York or Santiago, it would be the same. A deco in Vegas and an American welcome staff who speaks directly to us in English. Some hardly speak French or lose their smile when they speak French. Although the clientele is international, welcoming people saying "hello" rather than "hi guys" seems normal in Paris ... Correct neighborhood, no more. The hostel has the advantage of having a metro station 2 steps which facilitates travel.

Very good
Nice hostel, very good for spending the night

The hostel itself is well placed, just in front of a metro mouth, there is an organic supermarket and a French supermarket just next door, you can walk to a cinema VF-VO (10-15min or a metro station), there are many restaurants within 10 min walk, BREF the location is very good. At the reception level we will go back. I had to wait several hours for my room to be ready (and it is not for much in the end, we must leave the rooms at 10am but the rooms are sometimes not ready before 15-16h to finally find a brothel in the room and having to make the bed is even ..?) The ladies of the reception laughed every time they told us that our rooms were still not ready, level compassion we will iron. In the end, the reception was rather bad. The rooms are good (room of 10 mixed), the floors of the rooms are very quiet, very good to sleep or just rest. The temperatures in the rooms are adjustable (AC) and very pleasant. The floors are rather clean (it also depends a lot of people in the room with you, some are very clean and discreet, others put the brothel everywhere in the room, etc.). The bathrooms seem to be cleaned often, however there is no ventilation in the bathrooms, the smell quickly becomes strong and the atmosphere unpleasant if we do not leave all the doors open (this also creates ENORMOUSLY MOLD which is easily bleached in all showers but apparently nobody cares). /! \ The beds are very comfortable, the quiet rooms, the blankets are very good, the beds are equipped with a single lamp, an individual plug, a shelf, a net pocket to hold your things, each bed is assigned a large box that can be secured with a padlock even very small. In front of the Colonel Fabien metro. Close to a lot of things. Easy access. Rooftop terrace with magnificent views. Smoking areas. Comfortable bistro on the ground floor. Rentable casies very cheap (3euros 6h for the largest locker, 4euros for 12h, easy to use). Laundry room of clothes. /! \ No workspace (desks or tables) or quiet space apart from the rooms (this can be boring if you want to work or relax in silence because there will always be some noisy people coming here to have fun around from you).
