I stayed in this hostel a few years ago, and by the looks of the reviews below not much has changed. The website says "an international hostel in the centre of Paris" - I would call this false advertising. Although it is in Paris, it is a trek away from any of the tourist attractions that a hostel-er would want to see! This was the first hostel I stayed in on my interrailing trip, and it was also the WORST!
The bunkbeds were SO small you could not sit upright in the bottom bunk - they were children's bunks only! The curtains and bedding all had holes in them. The shower was SO small. The linin was dirty. Breakfast was a bread roll every day - that was it. And some days even that was stale. The staff were not quick in coming forward to help either.
The one positive thing I can say about this hostel is that there was a social area so I did not have to endure the awful room! We met two fantastic people here and it was only bearable because we made it so. Other than that.... I would urge anyone to stay away! It may seem cheap, but it's no deal! RIP OFF.
