Very small hostel. Not bad location, on the quiet road near Anvers, no mrore than 10 mins to get there. My room was on the G/F, toilet is located outside. My bed was a bit noisy but I can sleep well :P It's easy to make friends here. Service is so far so good, staffs are nice. Not much choices... More

How to convince a budget traveler not to stay here? This place was so horrible my friends and I slept in jeans, long sleeved shirts, light jackets, & socks to avoid touching the bed. It was physically impossible to shower (it was FREEZING & DISGUSTING!) Others have mentioned the weird cleaning lock out.... pretty rough when you want to have... More

I have to warn others about Woodstock's cleaning policy. It might be ok if you plan to be out during the day but it's something to be aware of in case you sometimes like to sleep in, like me. This is the only hostel I've stayed at so far that has a cleaning lock-out policy: that is, you can't be... More

Let's get the negatives out of the way first because that's why you're really here. The showers are cold unless you're prepared to wait for 10 minutes. There's no lift and the breakfast leaves a bit to be desired. Now onto the good things! I have never felt so welcome as I did at Woodstock. I found the staff to... More

I would totally recommend it, the location is perfect, near montmartre, you have several train/metro stations(gare du nord/pigalle) nearby connecting you all through Paris. We talked a lot with two of the receptionists, they were very friendly and gave us lots of tips on where to go and what to see. The breakfast was also quite nice.We had a regular... More

Overall I enjoyed my stay at Woodstock Hostel. The free breakfast was quite nice, you get a bread roll, a croissant and a selection of cereals. This is quite useful because Paris can be a bit pricey when it comes to buying food. Having said this, there are several small supermarkets located very near the hostel which does come in... More

Got there during cleaning hours so had to wait an hour or so until we could get to our room. 3 bunks in our room, comfy but needed cleaning. Full of hairs. Bunks got soaked one night because the skylight directly above one bunk was left open, bad location for one. Very expensive for what we got. Free WiFi, free... More

I will never stay there again. Rude and indifferent staff, no outside drinks allowed, which does not make any sense, since the whole purpose of hostels is to provide travellers with an affordable stay and not to lock them into a prison cell which this hostel was 100%. Me and my friend got a private room which by all means... More

Had mostly what you want in a hostel: a bed, toilet/shower, wifi and a cat. Also had free breakfast of croissants, bread, cereal, OJ, chocolate milk, tea and coffee. Cons: one toilet and shower per level (about five dorms per level!). But you can walk up and down to hopeful find one that is free. Also have to pay for... More

Friendly staff and a welcoming atmosphere make this place worthwhile. It is located in one of the most bustling districts of Montmartre. The walk to the closest metro of Anvers is only a few minutes so getting there and around is fairly easy. The room I stayed in was a six-person share and remained clean throughout. The hostel attracts a... More

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
