Oops! Hostel Paris Reviews
Mixed feelings, but I sure wouldn't say, 'Oops! Staying here was a mistake!' May 11, 2013
While the Oops! Hostel is not situated very close to the city centre, it is by no means difficult to get around from its location, having access to a metro station with lines running direct to many major sights and attractions.
The hostel itself is a little bit small, especially the lobby and dining area, which could result in a somewhat unpleasant over crowded feeling at busy times like breakfast or in the evenings. The rooms, too are a bit on the small side, but are otherwise clean and comfortable, with nice shower and toilet facilities.
The staff is friendly and helpful enough, although not overly so, but I have nothing to complain about with regard to their service, since they were pretty much to the point, and efficient in attending to what I wanted.
The atmosphere for the travelers in the hostel was not all that warm, possibly because many of them, like me, may have wanted to get out of the cramped social areas rather than socialize there.
The room rates, while not the lowest I came across, are borderline justifiable, primarily considering that the location was not too far away from the city centre, and that the rooms and beds were comfortable and conducive for some good rest.
All in all, I would say that this hostel is definitely worth a visit, as long as you don't have high expectations of socializing with the staff and other travelers staying there. Of course, that being said, you might just be lucky like I was, to have a great bunch of roommates.
