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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Poor cleaningness. Extremly expensive for a hostel. Stuff very kind. Entertainment quite poor. It could be done for the guests, rather than the invited artists playing only for the friends they bring along. Entertainment is a still a job.

I stayed two nights, and had one of the cabins that are advertised as "private rooms". Cleanliness and availability of sanitary facilities was good, but the cabin felt quite claustrophobic, stuffy, dark and also didn't give much privacy, since you could hear everything from the neighbors... From what it advertised on Hostelworld, it was not clear to me that it wouldn't be a real room but just a wooden box. Wouldn't stay in one again.

The cabin room was nice for visual privacy, but there wasn't much sound insulation so you can hear everything that was happening in the room (i.e. doors opening/closing and talking). For one night, someone was opening/closing the doors every other hour so it was practically impossible to sleep, but it's more a problem of inconsiderate roommates. The cabin itself was alright - it smelled fresh, but it got stuffy at night and was really dusty. The washroom was average for hostels. Only a couple of the shower stalls were open and the drain was really slow/clogged in one of them. The showers and washrooms are cleaned daily, but they get really dirty by the next morning because some people just don't clean up after themselves. The soap wasn't refilled everyday despite the cleaning so it was a bit disappointing since free toiletries were supposed to be included. I liked the lively atmosphere in the restaurant/bar area, it made the hostel feel more lively and welcoming overall, but you can also stay in your room if you do not want to participate. The staff were nice and able to speak English so I didn't have a problem communicating with them despite not being able to speak French well.

Staff was geniunely kind. Location was good for the price. Interior decor was a little too much for me (hallways, baths). Fridges and microwave (there is no stove!) were clean, but please change the dishcloth way more often, that was gross. Showers werent that clean. My room wasnt clean: Stains of whatever on bedlinen and walls and stranger hairs. Badly soundproofed, it was extremly noisy. No social atmosphere at all, could be better in summer. My stay was okay, but wouldnt come back.

Nice place, for an affordable price. Very close to the metro line. I stayed in an individual dorm, which was nice and private, but did get hot in the night. It had everything I needed and for the price, was well worth it. I will be returning here if I visit Paris again.

its not Paris and located in a very dull area, its outskirts which should be clear in description, hotel itself was good but neighbourhood is very dull. It’s along the railway line and didn’t even find a good restaurant around. Hotel itself was good.

I had a private room with a balcony that I booked. When we got into our room I went to take a shower and there was so much hair on the shower wall it was absolutely Disgusting, in the same bathroom the sink had also not been cleaned and had leftover toothpaste and gunk from the person before. The bed had hair in it all over the place. And our balcony didn’t have a door handle so we couldn’t access it. My boyfriend went to the front desk to tell them it was dirty and and they said we have to wait to complain in the morning and there’s nothing we can do about it. We immediately booked another hotel for the rest of our stay and checked out.

I found a great place, like just as I imagined, even beyond expectations. Modern, functional and relaxing. Nice evening spent eating a hamburger, drinking beers and cocktails with live music, then a night in the single cabin and the next morning a hearty breakfast. All perfect.

Serious issues with payment and trying to resolve I have stayed several times this venue since it opened and this is the 1st occasion I really have had problems . The excellent - This is within easy Reach of central Paris on RER , The adjacent area to the hostel is nothing special - But compared to some where like Gare Du Nord or even some areas of London feels safe and I have no concerns re returning to the Hostel Late at night on my own . It is excellent value for Paris and staff are generally friendly and helpful . The breakfast is good value and can be had if you book ahead for about the cost of a coffee elsewhere , the communal showers and toilets are clean - showers are hot . I would recommend the Hostel despite the negative review - remember this is about my experience on this occasion. On this occasion - Breakfast - Items were not replensished - I saw several occasions where family and individuals approached the counter to find no croissants or Chocolate Crossiants - at 8am in the morning - and walking away looking bewildered- the sole worker in the kitchen just ignored me - My cabin - fresh linen had been provided but it looked like the cast of Ratatouille the movie had eaten on the bed matress - no rodents seen so assumed not cleaned - not a big problem The bad - check in - I simply had to pay 9 Euros approx city tax and the balance of my sons booking 113 Euros approx - yet was charged a whopping 383.80 Euros , when I queried this I was told that my original payment had not been authorised - I explained it had - but this was ignored - more on this - I then asked if my son and I could share the same room where we had two separate cabins - and was no - THIS IS NOT A HOTEL you know - The sage continues checkout - My Son checked out on the Sunday Morning - confirmed he had checked out of the right Cabin in his name - and it was ok for him to leave his bag in my room - It was He left his case in my room as we were both running the Paris Half Marathon - On return I was unable to access my cabin with key card , on enquiring at reception was told I should have checked out and the receptionist just kept shugging her shoulders - I explained that I had checked with her colleague that morning and he had assured me all was correct, common sense would have allowed me to say in that room - but no I had to clear it out and move into my sons room which he had vacated - The receptionist explained they were unable to let rooms that had not been vacated - I understand this but explained the confusion arose with her colleague - to add further insult - quote - He ( referring to my son had better not be staying in your room and you need to be more careful ) Future booking - The hostel allows to options - pay in full at time of reservation and ave some money - pay more and the option to cancel - I opted for the latter - and the final fee came to to 4 nights Cabin one occupant including breakfast and cancellation fee a very expensive 246 Euros This seemed incorrect and I have subsequently checked again and its now 188 Euros I have no idea what the problems are with their website and bookings and staff using the check in computer I have to add that I did raise a complaint re the overcharge and was contacted quickly by Amandine who is trying to resolve the over payment Conclusion Compared to previous numerous other stays - The venue seems understaffed - from Kitchen to check in - staff seem unsure and over worked - just my opinion - They are all I am sure nice people as is the hosel - but on this occasion - not particularly pleasant Small things I can overlook - the booking and overcharged payments I find frustrating - that is the only thing that would make me hesitate to stay again - - I am considering cancelling my April booking and sadly staying Elsewhere With the forthcoming Olympics they need to get their act togather

Finally, as far as your refund is concerned, I can assure you that Amandine is indeed in charge of the file and that she will take care of everything as soon as possible, by getting back to you.

Staying in a private cabin was amazing! The bed was comfortable, I had everything I needed, and most importantly, it was super easy to let fresh air in! On the other hand, all the spaces could have been cleaner. When I first entered my cabin, there was trash left by the previous guest, and the floor was dirtier than I expected. The common bathrooms were a bit icky too — the toilets were spotless, but it felt like the sinks and showers were properly cleaned only every other day. Remember to take some slides with you! Another downside was, there are no lockers for the cabin guests. It didn't feel safe to leave money or personal belongings in the cabin. Overall I had a good experience. The neighborhood felt much safer than I expected, public transport inside the Paris zone was in a ten minute walk (but mind the bridges — for some reason some of them are closed for the night!), traveling from CDG and to ORY was super easy. For the price I paid, it was a real bargain.
