stayed four nights in 8 bed dorm
the staff is brilliant at this somewhat quirky little hostel.
the dorm rooms are not overly tight and mine at least had one full bathroom with a second (very tight) separate toilet. the kitchen is in basement and is pretty basic. the Wi-Fi is a bit of a joke as you need to be in EXACTLY the right place to use it. hostel is clean but not obsessively so, and the stairs in this old building are diabolical.
What sets it apart from most and makes it a GREAT place to stay is the location which is a 10 min. walk to Notre Dame, 20 min. to Musee d'Orsay & 15 min to Gare Austerlitz for trains south, and the staff who are terrific who are helpful, energetic, and fully prepared to spend an hour finding accommodation for drop-ins at other hostels.
The hostel had a really good range of ages & nationalities which always make for an interesting environment and late night discussions!
One of my best hostel experiences ever & I would happily recommend this hostel to friends.
