The reason I had chose this place was due to it being one of the more affordable places and for also being at a very convenient location. This hostel is located in the Marais right along the Canal St-Martin and is about a 5 minute walk from the Republique metro station which can bring you anywhere in Paris. Despite its... More

Worst hostel I've ever stayed at. Room and bathroom were absolutely disgusting. They clearly aren't cleaned thoroughly (hair in bathroom/on toilet/shower) and stuff dripped and smeared on walls that were not cleaned. Shower does not stay running, you have to keep pushing the knob in every 20 seconds or so. We also had to move rooms because of bed bugs... More

This hostel would have gotten a nice three, as it is an okay okay place overall if you're not too fussed with looks or it being a little dirty. But then, I got back after a long day out to find that some coins, two necklaces (not even worth much, just sentimental value), a pair or sleeper earrings (but not... More

The place was very good. I travel with a group of teenagers in a school trip. The rooms were clean, they had their own bathroom, also clean. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. The place is centric, very close to the metro station, next to a supermarket and a lot of restaurants around. I recommend it.

When a friend left us stranded for a night, we found this hostel at midnight that had a room available. The staff were friendly and price was right. We booked a private room which was comfortable. However, it was a bit snug, there was no tv and the view was of a brick wall. Well, with the low price, we... More

I was in luck to get checked in a two ppl room while i booked for four ppl room. The room is clean, has a private bathroom and with towels provided, which may not be the case for more ppl room. There is no locker in the room though and the lockers in the hallway are tiny ones. Breakfast is... More

The rooms are little dirty, the bathroom was nice but the shower was terrible. Dirty and not very good. The rooms are not that big and the price is high, when you see what you're paying for. The staff was nice and breakfast ok. The hostel was close to the Metro which was good.

The rooms are clean and neat. Bit smaller than our other hostels we stayed in but it was still okay. Nice private bathroom and no noise when we wanted too sleep (end January). Staff is not super friendly but they are very helpful. What was outstanding though - we already booked on-line and paid the deposit, something came up so... More

Absolute is close to metro and McDonalds + food shop. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the breakfast you get in the morning is perfect to start the day. Wifi connection also great in the rooms. Room was clean and bathroom cleaned everyday. Overall I will recommend Absolute Hostel to anyone.

It was crazy hot in the rooms at night due to radiator being constant but you can open windows. Only real problem with the hostel is it directly next to a nightclub and you can here everything! It isn't operational every night, I was there 2 nights, nothing on the Monday but was going to at least 1 in the... More

Staying in Canal Saint-Martin

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris. Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may explore hidden gems down nearby streets, from local bars to futuristic architecture. With its enriching mix of people of all ages and backgrounds, this neighborhood has a dynamic, inspiring vibe.
