This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Friends Hostel offers good value for the price they ask. It is basic, but it is clean and neat and everything you would expect in a cheap hostel.
I had a room on the side of the courtyard, but I can imagine that the rooms on the side of the street are rather noisy.
If you are afraid of people of colour and their livelyness I would not recommend you to book a room at Friends Hostel. If, on the contrary, you are ready to get to know all the different facades of Paris there is no place better to go. Yes, there are a lot of immigrants hanging around at the metro and on the street, but I did never feel myself uncomfortable or agressed at all.
Finally, apart from its good price/value ratio Friends Hostel's main asset is that it is close to Montmartre and only a 10 meters walk from the metro (on the very important north-south line no 4) so you can basically get anywhere in Paris in no time.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I made a reservation for a four bed room for six nights, but when I arrived they put me in a six beds room. The reservation page says the room is ensuite but the toilet is outside, only two toilets for the whole floor. Inside just basin and shower. After two nights they put me in a four bed room, without telling me, I found it at night because my bed was occupied.
Next day they told me I must return to the six beds room, with no refund because they say travellerspoint keeps the 10% advance so in their opinion I just paid for a six beds room! After my complaints with management they let me stay in the four beds room. I think they moved me from room to room to accomodate groups, but my money was as good as theirs. They were almost ruining my stay in Paris.
In the travellerspoint site the description of the facilities of this hostel is untrue: there is no breakfast available, either free or paying, towel is paying, fax service is not free, and check out is 9am. The kitchen closes at 10pm, which was inconvenient to me, but opens at 5am! In their brochure they even show a "bar and tv room with satellite" that does not exist!
If you are traveling alone, beware!

DO NOT STAY AT FRIENDS HOSTEL! UNLESS YOU LIKE PAYING FOR A BED WHICH YOU CAN NOT SLEEP IN. we arrived from the airport to the hostel at night(10pm), and had already booked reservations in advance. when my friend and i got there and gave him the name for our reservation, the desk attendant said he didnt know or have my name. he gave us the run around with a stack of reservations in front of him, saying he had too many reservations and no rooms..of course ours was in there. finally he showed us to a dorm with three empty beds per order..which would have been fine if it ended there. however at 2:30am the desk manager comes loudly storming in with a cot and throws it down, opens it up in the small space between the two already crowded bunkbeds. then 2 boys who just arrived spend the next hour loudly hauling in their many bags and suitcases and rifling through them as though there werent 4 people already in the room sleeping. we got 5 hrs sleep before someone came in to make sure we were checking out at 9am.
