Alexandra
Very warm and welcoming hostel ..... Super well located 1 min from the metro not far from the small food shops and next to the sacred heart ... There we meet a lot of different nationality so very rewarding but also a little noisy some nights depending on the youth on the spot ... Perfect bedding kitchen equipment too ..... I advice

Everything went very well. Small downside however: soundproofing with the outside to review because very noisy!

Arlette
The hostel is in a very charming neighborhood (9th arrondissement). Perfect place for those who want to see beautiful buildings (Moulin Rouge, Garnier Palace, St. Trinity ....). As soon as you enter the building, you are charmed by the "royal" decoration of the hall. The outdoor courtyard has nothing to envy the hall since it also has its charm with its wall decorations. A delicious breakfast, no frills and enough proposal to please everyone. As for the rooms, they are fun. personally, I did not feel crowded with other people; but it may displease those who are used to large rooms. In addition, the number of shots is really limited. I just have a little problem with the toilet I found too small (it's my claustrophobic side talking) and the fact that there is no locker for our things.

Paris – Student accommodation, hostels and coworking spaces in Paris (France). Maps of Paris, photos and reviews for each place in Paris.

Welcome to Paris

What is it about Paris? Aspiring artists want to hang out there, lovers want to propose there, foodies long to eat there. But let’s go beyond the classics – when you book a hostel or student acommodation in Paris you’ll also discover underground bars, digital arts centres and pop-up parks by the river. And since the city is enduringly popular with backpackers and students alike, there’s a great range of cheap and central places to stay to choose from. Discover the side of modern Paris the films don’t show. And if you still fancy dining on steak frites and stealing a kiss as the sun goes down over Montmartre, you can do that too. It's a win-win!

Les Berges de Seine

This string of quirky features and free attractions is bringing new life to a 1.5 mile stretch of the river, attracting a mix of backpackers, tourists and locals. Don’t miss the floating garden designed by artist Niki de Saint Phalle, composed of five islands connected by bridges.
