And also enjoyed the 14th of July fireworks in the Eiffel Tower. The neighborhood around the hostel is wonderfull, full of bars and restaurants and good ambient.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. We arrived tired after travelling on train from Germany. The hostel was a 5 minute walk from a metro stop. And I found the directions on the website very clearer to follow. We were very pleased to find we had been upgraded to a twin. This may have been because we had... More

This hostel isnt in the centre but still a great location. The latin quarter is very pretty and very french with lots of cafes around, also not too touristy, which is nice. There are bakeries and supermarkets and a metro just around the corner too. Its a ten minute walk to the river then a very pretty 40/50 minute walk... More

This hostel was exactly what you'd expect from a living situation in the middle of Paris - great location, tons of young travelers crammed into a small space together. The shower is a bit iffy - you have to press a button which releases hot water for all of 20 seconds before turning off. Also, I'm pretty sure they tried... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
