Reviewed 16 February 2012

Wish we had read reviews before booking and staying here. Horrible area, horrible hostel...smelly, dirty, tiny, broken beds, more beds in room than booked.

Room Tip: Don't go for the cheapest option, and research the area.

Just a few blocks from metrostation and sacre coeur. This hostel was very cute. We stayed in 4 bed room. There was a shower and a toilet in our room. We had to firts go to the secod floor and then outside through the terrace to reach our room. The terrace was cute too and the view magnificent! Breakfast was ok and service too. The hotel was very colourful, stairway quite narrow. I really enjoyed stying here and would recommend to everyone that are not that picky :)

I have stayed in many hotels, hostels, B&B's in cities all over the world and this one definitely takes the prize for the worst. Dangerous, dingy neighbourhood, unfriendly and often aggressive staff, and putrid dwellings that I wouldn't even deem fit for a homeless person!!
AVOID STAYING HERE AT ALL COSTS!!!

Room Tip: BOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE!!! Cancel now, even if you lose your deposit, trust me I'm doing you a favo...

If u have paid a deposit please please please cancel your booking, the neighbourhood is a gang hang out and the hostel would not pass any legal standards in the western world.

First off way too expensive for the size and quality of the rooms, quite bad location unless you like your pockets getting picked and lots of gangs around at night... Not a good look for Paris.
