The location of the hostel was fantastic - right near the Cathedral in the Gothic Quarter. We had a private room/bathroom which was located away from the main hostel (about a 2-3 minute walk) - this worked really well for us, as we shared an apartment with just two other rooms (with spacious, modern kitchen & lounge with balcony). It was easy to self-cater as the kitchen was pretty well equipped and also as it was only shared with two other rooms (a twin and a four bedroom). The double bedroom was really big for hostel standards and the bathroom was very modern - all very clean as well. We had a fan which worked well (luckily it wasn't too hot while we were there). There was also a small courtyward off our room, which was great for extra cool airflow into the room & had a small drying rack for washing. No issues with the wifi. The staff were ok - we were initially given the wrong room (which was then a bit of a trek back and forth to the main hostel building to fix, but we got the right room after that!), and we had one issue with the hot water not working for the whole apartment, but were given instructions to fix it by a staff member and after that had no problems. Overall: I would highly recommend the hostel (for private rooms - didn't have any experience with shared rooms) and would stay again.
