Stayed in the private rooms of the hotel/hostel, rooms and ensuite bathroom were clean, reception staff very helpful with tour information and luggage storage. The location is convenient, a short walk from Gard du Nord and handy for taking the Eurostar. Unfortunately there was the occasional power short circuit and smoke alarms set off due to another person smoking in... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Hotel is good for Solo traveller. Good location. Near to Metro Station. Staff is not that accommodating. Room and washroom is clean but quite small. Lift is very little. Overall the Hotel is decent and I will recommend this.

Smart Place is located 5 mins from the Gare Du Nord metro station, this isn't the best or safest neighbourhood (not that i met any grave immediate dangers). You will see different characters lurking/loitering the area most of the time, especially after it gets dark. Do take note/into consideration if you are a solo girl travelling. That being said, i...

Excellent place. Just one block from Gare du Nord (Metro, RER B to CDG & Orly). Many restaurants around and a market across the street. Clean place. Friendly staff. Full kitchen and enough tables and chairs to eat or write. I was in room 14; 4 beds, bathroom with shower and toilet, small but OK for 26 USD per bed.... More

My favourite part about this hostel was the pokey little lift that barely fits you and your luggage inside and the picturesque balcony in our room. Though I only stayed here for one night before flying out I would recommend it for anyone passing through as comfortable hostel option.

Fantastic hostel with clean comfortable rooms, a good atmosphere and helpful 24 hour staff. The possible negative I found was the location was a metro ride from the main attractions of Paris but it was a simple 2 minute walk and an easy trip. Overall would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to experience Paris on a budget.

Great hostel with helpful staff! Close to Gard Du Nord for Eurostar travellers (5 min walk) Stones throw from Montmartre and Pigale. Great indoor market to the south that offers farm fresh food and lots of bars to the west. Great experience all round!
