Had a good stay at this hostel! The staff were nice, and they gave a coin for a free drink as a welcome gift. The WiFi is pretty good. In the women’s bathroom on the first floor, there are: 5 shower stalls, 2 toilet stalls, and one hair dryer. If you want to do laundry, it’s 6 euros. The aesthetic is pretty modern/minimalistic. They provide a full kitchen and fridge. They also have a cafe and bar. As for cleanliness, it was pretty good. The only thing I will say is that I came back one night and the sheets had a stain on them that I don’t recall...It was late so I just took off the sheets and slept as is.

Again staff was nice and great location. Issues: rooms were dirty. Floor was covered in hair and dirty, needed swept or vacuumed. The dorms were full of mosquitos. I mean full. I received almost 30 bites over the two nights and many on my face. The rooms were so hot that you had to leave the windows open (no fans, no AC) so that meant mosquitos. Pick your poison: mosquitos or cook in the dorms.

Overpriced and anti social
Well beds r hard as rock social vibe irrelevant, better and cheaper off having a party in ur own room than down in the common area. They need to organize a actual luggage room as well vs. Small laying lockers when u vould simply lpck the door to the luggage room like every other hostel on earth does. Staff are not as qualified as need to tlbe eother. Typical unorganized uneducated uncompfy french place.
