I have to thank the front desk staff because without them my stay would have ended up differently. Great location and have a comfy area for guests to enjoy. Wish they have a faster elevator but it's not anything too bad

We spend a week in a private room and was perfect! We made 3 reservations bc we weren’t sure how long we will stay and kept extending it.

Smack in the middle of the city it was waking distance to the public transit stations. Room was too small with 4 bunk beds and literally no space to move. Same with the miniature toilet. However the common area in lobby was comfortable especially when no one os using the common kitchen

This is nice hostel with a bar downstairs. The room (6 bed female dorm) was pretty small and dark but it was clean. Although it was only on the first floor above the bar, it wasn't noisy at all.

Alternative Accommodations – Hostels

 

Best Hostels in Paris

 

Travel is all about experiences, whether you’re trekking across the world or just miles away from home. And while you may think of backpacking students when cheap hostels come to mind, modern-day hostels appeal to a much more diverse group of people. Hostels are traditionally beloved as a great way to meet fellow travelers and as a more affordable option to hotels. They’re the perfect place to rest for the night and then get up and go on your next day of exploring Paris and beyond.

 

What is the difference between a hostel and a hotel?

 

It’s customary for hostels to contain multiple bunk beds in a dorm-style room to be shared with friends (or strangers). So, can couples stay in hostels? The short answer is yes. Some of the best hostels in the world (and maybe even in Paris) are private room hostels that feature larger beds and more privacy. There are even bookable accommodations that offer family hostel rooms that provide even more space. Hostels are more commonly found internationally, but USA hostels are beginning to pop up around the country.

If secluded quarters and quiet accommodations are a priority to you during your travels, there are boutique and luxury hostels that offer upgraded private rooms, elevated décor, and higher end amenities. It’s possible to get the affordability and energy of a hostel with some elements of privacy that you’d usually only find by staying in a hotel.
