Decent place.
Good price my main concern is that there were not enough Plugs and the few ones were extremely far away from the bed. Also it was hot and humid. I know it’s not too expensive but little adjustments would make it better even for the price. Staff was helpful

When in Paris for short time... stay here.
If you're looking for that 'American' Paris experience of croissants brought to your balcony for breakfast with a view of the eiffel tower, this is clearly not the place for you. But for the price, and a hostel, this is GREAT. It's located close to Gare de Nord, two different metro lines, and the Sacre Coeur, has a nice area for chilling/meeting other young travelers and cooking, rooms are relatively nice and clean. They also (as any hostel should) held my luggage for me when I arrived too early to check in. Only con about this place, (which for me as a traveler, is imperative with spotty international cell service), is that the WiFi did not work at all for me. But other than that, this place was great! Fix the WiFi, and I would hands down stay again!

Perfect location, nice little hostel
We stayed with 2 adults and 2 teenagers in a double bunk bed room with private bath on the top (6th) floor. The elevator is teeny so we could only use it 2 at a time when we arrived with our bags, but most often we took the stairs. We did use the kitchen while we were there. The hostel needs to purchase more utensils for eating as they were in short supply, and they probably need bigger signs telling people to wash their own dishes because items were often left dirty in the sink. The WiFi was terrible and the security settings were done really poorly, so take caution when you sign on. Pros: Really close to Gare du Nord so easy access to local and international trains, good selection of restaurants nearby, but also a kitchen and refrigerator to use if you want to cook your own meals, clean linens and towels provided, quiet area of town and (mostly) quiet fellow travelers. Rooms are nice and cozy. Cons: Poor WiFi, need more kitchen items. All in all, would recommend!
