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!

During our travels we stayed here for a couple of nights. This was a friendly place with helpful staff. Secure luggage storage and great communal kitchen. On the nights that we stayed we say a great mix of age and nationality staying there. We were in a 6 bed mixed dorm with ensuite and the room and facilities were clean,... More

I chose to stay by the Gare du Nord for my last night in Paris so I was close to the Subway station to get to the airport. I stayed at the Smart Place Hostel which I loved! Amazing location! Seriously, anyone who only has a night or a few in Paris should stay by the Gare du Nord. This... More

My sister and I stayed while we were backpacking and it was everything we were looking for. The location couldn't be better. Only a 5 minute walk from Gare Du Nord which is the central most transportation hub. There's a supermarket right around the corner which goes perfectly with the fact the hostel has an adorable kitchenette. We got the... More

Convenient location, pleasant quiet rooms, very helpful staff. Having the lift is really helpful. Pleasant, shared common area makes it easy to meet other travellers. A little difficult to find but it is just past the intersection on Rue De Dunkerque which forks off to the left. Highly recommended.

I had a room for myself. It was clean, tidy, with a flatscreen. But you dont really have any room for more luggage than a small bag. Also there could have been a lamp in the ceiling. The room was very dark when I shut the curtains. Dark curtains though, you dont wake up in the morning because of light... More

We only stayed one night but it got the job done. The staff is incredibly kind and helpful, and the hotel is about 5 blocks from Gare Paris Est, which is very convenient. The rooms are super tiny, so do not expect any frills, but they are clean and comfortable. We had a private bathroom which again was very tiny... More
