Hello,

I have paid a deposit for one night in November for one dorm bed at AIJ youth hostel in Paris (bastille area). Visit their website here: http://aijparis.com.
Basically I found free accomodation and asked to cancel the booking and they said they could not refund me the deposit (which I knew) but I could transfer it to someone else or another date. Since I have no plans to return to Paris in the next few months I'm offering to transfer it to someone here. The loss of the cash isn't a big deal to me (13.00 Euros) so I wouldn't ask for anything in return because either way I'm out the money.
However, if you're ever around Nottingham, UK I wouldn't turn down a drink.

This is seriously not a joke and I will send you all the email communication between me and them. I just figured someone was nice to me by letting me stay at their place for a few days for free, so I'm going to pass it along. Reach me however you want. Right now the booking is for November 2 but they said I could move it to any date more than three days away from the day I email them requesting the change.

It's in the bastille district, closest metro is Ledru-rollin (line 8). Close to shops, metro and sights.
It does not look at all like a party hostel. I basically chose from the price and that is was close to a metro line that made it easy to get places. Cost includes linens and breakfast.
If it's terrible, you can just sepdn the one night and go somewhere else. Or even not spend the night. It's paid for either way so it wouldn't matter to me. If it's good, you can add more nights on once you're there.
