STAY AWAY!!!!! if i could give this place negative stars, i would.
you've been warned. this was by far the worst experience ever in paris-and we were mugged on the first night there. i'd take another mugging over dealing with the staff here.
they refuse to give you a receipt for your payments (regardless if it's 20 bucks or 300-like we paid), they're rude, not helpful, disrespectful, and bitchy. it by far basically ruined our stay there. we tried not to - i've been there and i know it's a great city, but it just put such a damper on the begining and ends of your days.
in addition you won't find any negative reviews as the receptionist (who says her name is melanie but i wouldn't count on it as she refused to give us her name numerous times) has control over the reviews on hostelworld.com. (she was stupid enough to point that out to my bf)
apparently the company busabout has a stop near by, as that's how our roomate booked this place. according to him they only mention this place because it's close by-all the busabout passengers know to book there as a last resort to avoid problems. a previous busabout passenger actually left early after paying for 3 nights after a huge argument with the same b***h. (who has a reputation but you wouldn-t know because she deletes all the reviews)
that's another thing-they refuse to refund money for night's not stayed there-saying that it says "no refunds" on their hostelworld.com page--which it does not-i've checked numerous times. we told them 3 days in advance we needed to cancel-we still have not received our money back yet. we were told we need to write a letter with our cc info to the manager and leave it with ms. melanie who would deliver it in order to request a refund.
they also do not accept credit cards-which was not on their website either until another roomate we stayed with had an argument regarding that with them as they would not accept her card when she showed up. after she had numerous fights with them-it's finally on the website.
towels are included-sometimes-whenever they feel like apparently as one day the bathrooms were cleaned and re-stocked and another day they were not.
there's two big cats they lay around everywhere and get hair on everything and everywhere.
if you're just looking for a place to crash, it's decent enough. but once you have to talk to staff for ANYTHING, it's ruined. and further ruined when you have to stand there and waste an hour and a half of your day arguing with them. seriously the worst experience ive had by far.
STAY AWAY-you've been warned.
