“It was perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

The hostel was clean and the people working there were very friendly. I felt very comfortable there, making my first time in Paris a wonderful one. I walked A LOT from there to different attractions, and there are TONS of cool places nearby... Definitely recommended.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Stayed at Smart Place for 10 days in Paris and I have nothing to complain about. The hostel is really close to Gare du Nord station, which can take you anywhere in Paris and outside Paris. Very crowded place, with a lot of tourists, but beggars also. I didn't feel threatened not a single time in that region, but I can't say I felt comfortable as well. Lots of places to eat: pizzas, kebabs, bakeries. If you prefer saving money, you can buy some food at one of the supermarkets around the area and cook something at the hostel.

The staff is great, always there to help you with good information about what is going on in Paris.

The room was a little bit small, but that was no big deal. Both the room and the bathroom were super clean - also, hot water available.

Close to Gare du Nord, that's great, the staff always answers with a smile , the rooms are a little small , is very clean , close to sacre coeur, no breakfast, wifii,etc the only thing that i didn't like was that there's no fan which makes the room very hot in summer.

Room Tip: Bring your own earplugs cause the street noise won't let you sleep.

Hostel is situated close to the city metro line, making it easy to reach all of the tourist attractions. The rooms are tiny with barely enough room for more than one person to move at the same time. Bed's are uncomfortable and shower is also very small.

This place was great - close to Gare du Nord, within walking distance of the Seine (30-45 mins depending on how fast you walk) and the sights, nice and clean. The bathroom itself was nice but the shower was tiny. Lots of really great bakeries and grocers around too and close to Montmartre so going out late at night is 10 min walk down the hill. Doesn't provide breakfast

It is just close to Gare Du Nord; 5 minutes walking distance to the hotel. It is cheap and clean room with attached bath. Staffs are friendly; they described the places of tourist attractions for a visit. They have free wi-fi service at lobby. It is great value what you paid for.

Very close to Gare du Nord, and a short walk to Sacre Coeur and Montmarte. The rooms are small but clean and nice, the staff was very lovely and gave us great info on places to eat and visit. The WiFi is limited to the lobby but the signal was good. Could hear some noise from other rooms, but really it IS a hostel. Nothing too loud though.
