Me and two friends stayed for 3 nights at this kooky little place smack bang on one of the touristiest bar streets in the Quartier Latin.
Choose this hotel if you want a cheap, clean place to sleep, in a convenient location by the foot of the Notre Dame. Expect no luxurious Parisian romance or frills.
The hotel is quite run down, but very clean. The décor in the reception/breakfast room is a full-on jungle theme. Don't miss the minuscule "roof garden" by the reception.
The staff is friendly, if a little quirky. We shared a double room with an extra bed, which was a foldable, moderately comfortable IKEA-style cot. The double bed was 140 cm wide, and to normal French comfort standards. Again, no frills, but perfectly adequate.
Our room had a shower in a makeshift bathroom corner, but no toilet. The shared toilets are tiny, and a bit outdated, but spotlessly clean.
The location of the hotel is very convenient, if you can stand the hubub of the street below. Note that the bars and clubs in the neighbourhood are very noisy during the night on weekends, bring earplugs if you're sensitive.
