There were some really good things to this hostel but also some rather negative ones as well.
Free breakfast (Note: mainly cereal and croissant, NO toast)
Door key didn't work, at first didn't lock then didn't unlock
Neighbourhood seemed very dodgy, didn't feel safe. Didn't want to leave the hostel.
Showers were very short timed and water went everywhere

- Halle Pajol consists of a youth hostel, a public library, local activities and a public garden in three distinct but related entities. The hostel was fully completed in May 2013, and is a unique Parsian spot. Commissioned by the residents, the project Halle Pajol began in the early 2000s, following the decision of the city of Paris. In order to answer to the resident's requests, the city hall of Paris decided to build a cultural facility in a sustainable and ecofriendly way. It is in this spirit of innovative and efficient building that the hostel Yves Robert was born. The hostel is located in an environmental-friendly-neighborhood one of the best examples of sustainable development in Paris, between the Gare du Nord and Montmartre. ... more less
