The location was great - not far from metro and also close to good eating places (especially Au P’tit Grec, which had very delicious crepes). The staff was also friendly, positive. The beds were not small too, which was also good. And in the hostel there was also soccer table which was also a good thing to spent time during... 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

The location of this hostel is great - close to sights by metro and located on a safe and great street with lots of restaurants and cafes. The staff are friendly and happy to answer any questions. The price was also really cheap for Paris, which included a free breakfast which was pretty good. The rooms were a little cramped,... More

The hostel is charming with a lot of character. It gets pretty loud when people come and go as the windows face the little courtyard in the building. Free earplugs at the front desk! You can see into others' rooms, so close the curtains if you want some privacy. My room is quite cozy but there's enough room for luggages.... More

I never write reviews but this was a super place to stay and deserves a big thumbs up. The location is good, the staff are great and very helpful and they create a great relaxed atmosphere in the place. It's clean and its great value. For a budget it's hard to beat.

The staff was super friendly esp Joaquin! Fresh croissants every morning. Quaint and cozy spaces to hang outside of the room. Located very close to everything. The rooms were super cozy as well. The building has historical charm. Hot showers. But, make sure you bring your own towels. That was the one thing I want prepared for. Other than that,... More

Hostel is fairly good for its price, considering that it is still within Paris City Center. Walking distance from place monge metro. And pantheon (a landmark). Hot shower is good, its push button so it shuts off after a few seconds. To conserve water. Front desk helpful. Place is safe. All day long playlist at the lobby gives it a... More

Stayed here for 5 nights at the start of a 31 day long backpacking trip. The staff are lovely, they will answer any questions and help you out along the way. The lady who does breakfast (English?) was brilliant and always saved a few crossiants after breakfast if you slept in like I did most of the time. The hostel... More

Overall, not a bad place to stay, and a great location (in the heart of the Latin Quarter, on the same street as tons of restaurants and bars) for younger travelers as it was a predominantly student neighbourhood. My room was quite small, and we had two toilets + 1 shower to share among 8 of us. Small storage lockers,... More

It's nice, cozy and comfy! Great location!! We went out every night to good pubs, cafés, restaurants, all just a 5-10 mins walk from the hostel's door. Stayed in a 8-bed mixed room and got nice, relaxing sleep. Shower's good, too. Easy internet access.

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.
