Just spent 5 days in paris (visiting daughter studying there for the spring), stayed at La Maison the entire time. For about 20 Euros/night(3-4 person room), this is a deal that cannot be beat.
Clean, comfortable & safe--room had private bath w/ shower, comfortable mattress & pillow. Does not include linens, but 'rental' of sheets & towel cost total of 3.50 Euros for the entire stay. Nice neighborhood with stores,patisseries, pizza very nearby. About 3 blocks (5-10 min walk) from Metro station. (I got a 5-day/5-zone Parivisitte, AKA Carte Orange, for unlimited Metro & Bus travel, including out to DeGaulle Airport, for about 49 Euros--very well worth the money if you kick around the city a lot) This was my first visit to Paris, and certainly not the last--I had a wonderful time. The next time I do go there, there is a very good chance I will stay here again: my experience was that good. In case you are wondering--No, I am not associated in any way with this hostel or travel industry--just a 43 year old guy who had an extremely enjoyable experience for a phenominal price. I normally do not send email reviews on anything, but I was so impressed with La Maison that I thought I would, this time.More
