Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had an extremely great 1st experience with Les Piaules , starting from their friendly customer service team , the cleanliness of the place ( a maid comes every morning to clean up rooms and the female bathroom was perfectly clean all day long with no hair left anywhere )

The design of each dormitory is beautifully made . (Bed are spacious and really confortable) . The only remark I will make is about the fact that a microwave was missing , Les Piaules should have one for clients who want to heat their food . And in bonus why not having a small fridge where clients could stock foods that need to stay refrigerated ( I have seen that in other youth hostels )
The city « BelleVille » where Les Piaules is located is great because it’s surrounded by a lot of affordable restaurants , cafés and even a supermarket and the bonus is the proximity of the station « Belleville » with Les Piaules which is about 3min walk .

Globally for me the whole experience was positive and the booking price was worthy . I tried in the past many other youth hostels and Les Piaules is by far the best of all of them and I will now choose them as my first choice every time I will Have to go to Paris .

Great job to Les Piaules Team

Les Piaules was a fun little spot in the not so center of Paris. Newer and kept well. Clean and pretty. Bar/cafe is quaint, had a lounge-y feel. The staff was super helpful and pleasant. I didn't get their names, but all of them were lovely people! Food was limited but served well especially when too tired to go outside. Breakfast was so reasonable and traditional, and even the drip coffee was delicious!
Room was small, but as expected (6 bed suite). The beds were comfy and they have curtains! The bunks that were above the lockers were a little odd to get in and out of since they were a little higher than normal, but that is a minor issue. The curtains were just a tiny bit too short too, because I could make eye contact with the people at the lockers, but whatever, they were nice to not look in. I was on the 1st floor (2nd for the Americans) and could hear the street and bar at times, but not enough to bother me.
My accommodation was not an ensuite, but had a shared bathroom at the end of the hall. Boys/Girls had separate facilities. Bathrooms were always clean and there was never a line. The showers were always with hot water and had a locked door!
My stay was wonderful, I enjoyed the atmosphere on the weekend (Fri, Sat) as the bar stayed open til 2am, and guests were plenty there so it was easy to make friends. It quieted down a little during the week, but that was just fine.
The place is near the metro and bus stops and it is easy to walk everywhere, which I did because of the strike. Stores and food nearby. The place next door has great food and is open 24 hrs! The downfalls - no kitchen to cook for yourself, no place to store your left overs and no laundry. That was not an issue though, they have food available, plus nearby and laundry is about a 5 minute walk away.
Overall I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely stay again. Solo female, 30s, 1st time in Paris. OH! And don't forget to go to the rooftop it is beautiful!

The hostel was clean, comfortable and stable with fair prices for the bar and the food. The personal were all friendly and welcoming and the fellow guests in the hostel were interesting company.

Any downsides at the hostel would be what you would expect from a fairly cheap hostel. You would have to rent a towel for 2€, no daily cleaning of the rooms etc, but with that in mind the hostel truly is excellent.

The rooms are very easy to sleep in because of the bed curtain, and because of covid there were relatively few people, so it never felt cramped or unhygienic. The bathrooms were decent, clean and without any inconvenience in terms of, say, waiting for the shower or the toilet.

It's worth a visit.

Stayed there for 3 nights and the bathrooms and beds are all pretty nice. The shower was one of our favorites of all the hostels we stayed in and the beds were decently comfortable with a nice amount of privacy with the curtain. The lockers and hooks in the room are also nice but beware that some of the beds have the outlet blocked due to a post. The downstairs bar area is nice and you get free welcome drinks to use at any time. As for the not so good stuff…all of the men that work there except Romeo are pretty much incompetent. The girls seem nice and knowledgeable as well but if you really need anything to get done talk with Romeo, he is the best. Everyone else pretty much really dropped the ball when it came to being of any help, especially the skater boy looking kid (you’ll know him when you see him). Also, there are tons of mosquitos in multiple rooms. They offer bug spray but it doesn’t really work and you will absolutely be guaranteed to leave the hostel with at least 6 bug bites

I loved this place, it was just what I needed - I stayed in a 6 women dorm and it was clean, air conditioned and each bunk had a little curtain around it so frankly I felt like I had a bit of privacy! The shower was warm and pretty powerful. The lobby and bar area was friendly and always full of people. I came home about 4am and buzzed and someone opened the door. It also felt pretty safe as to enter the rooms area you needed a card to open the doors. Would definitely stay again.

Super clean, quiet, friendly. The lobby/bar/café is so much fun that it even attracts locals. They also adjust the heating in your room based on your comfort level.
A few downsides: coffees and breakfasts are expensive onsite. I also don’t think there is a kitchen for guests. Wifi was unstable in my room.

Overall, my stay at Les Piaules Belleville was fine but I wouldn't stay there again.

When I arrived my room/sheets were clean BUT the bed frame had footprints all over the roof of the bunk, and at the foot of the bunk as well where someone had clearly been resting their bare feet - which means it hadn't been wiped down. Normal times- not ok. During covid? Definitely not ok. I got bites all over my arm on night 1, changed to a new room on a new floor and got bitten *again* on night 2. I'm certain they were bed bug bites as they were in a line and red (unlike mosquito bites). Take note there's also no kitchen/fridge, which is pretty unusual for a hostel but that's on me for assuming there would be one.

For the positives - rooftop is beautiful! Great views. The staff are very friendly and sociable. The rooms themselves felt clean (also bonus points for the blackout curtains), and the shared washroom/shower was decent as well. There's also an elevator, which is handy. A key card is needed to enter the room section of the hostel which is nice for security, though the main floor of the hostel seems to be open to the general public.

Overall, nothing wowed me and with the bug bites and dirty bed I won't be going back unfortunately but there's room for improvement!

Great stay! Stayed in a 6 bedroom coed with 2 friends. Beds are comfy and have a privacy curtain which is great. Large storage in the rooms that you can lock up yourself. Bathrooms are super clean and separated by males and females, then showers, toilets and sinks are all separated! Awesome bar and chill space with great atmosphere.

Only downfall is no kitchen so wouldn’t be great for an extended period, but they do provide great food service!

A little out of the way because Paris is so big. Strikes were on so we did a lot of walking and took an Uber, location would be better once metro is running fully again.

Overall great stay!

Stayed for a night while visiting Paris for a weekend. It is next to 2 metro stations, very easily accessible and personally I love Belleville as an area. It is close to many beautiful places to visit in Paris without the overflow of tourists. Servixlce was kind and friendly. Room, bed and bathroom were very clean. Especially the bed was very comfortable with clean sheets, personal light and charging area, with cabinets for personal items. Downstairs area is also very lively with a nice bar and several events if you travel solo and want some socialising. Would definitely stay again

Great Hostel I would recommend, very modern and thoughts had been given to it.
It has a cafe/bar which locals as well as travellers use to do their work or to do things.

The hostel is spotless clean and beds are very comfy and has all you need.

The area is very popular part of Paris so you can get good cheap meals around. There is a market also that takes place If I am not wrong on Tuesdays

Friendly staff.

I would recommend this hostel .
