Reviewed August 20, 2012

A friend and I stayed here as our first stop on our inter-rail trip, the hostel itself was grand. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm, there was sufficient space and was nice and clean and breakfast was ok. We chose to stay here as it was close to the train station, this was a bad idea as the area was very dodgy, we got followed and approached by several strange men, day and night, not a nice way to start our holiday, scary to say the least.

I stayed in a 4 person ensuite room that was clean and comfortable, had a set of table and chairs in the room which made for a nice spot to organise your paperwork etc. The staff on the from desk were helpful and answered all my questions as well as booked me a shuttle to the airport. Some of the house keeping staff (female rather than the male) were quite rude and really bought down the tone.

The area around the hostel is not the best but safe enough for me to feel okay walking and by myself during the day. Would suggest staying far away from the Barbes Rouchesarts metro area, especially after dark as is not safe. Don't reccomend walking from Gare du Norde to the hostel as is suggested on their website, catch the metro or a taxi.

All in all I found the hostel quite pleasant and comfortable (shame about the location and some staff), would stay there again though.

The location was great! We stayed at the end of June and it was a very hot Summer. We had a private double room with shared bathroom. We were on the first floor facing a busy street, not Sacre Coeur as the pictures suggest. Toilet is separate, down one end of the floor and shower is over the other side and almost resembles a cupboard. Facilities were alright. The street was very noisy so we had to keep our window closed - the room became unbearably hot since it was the middle of Summer and a hot water pipe running through our room! No fan was provided in the room so we had to choose between noise from the street or a hot, stuffy room. Also, the bed was not long enough and my boyfriend and I (and I am not ridiculously tall at 170m) struggled with our feet hanging over the edge of the bed.

Kitchen facilities on site were good and we were able to save some money by cooking our own meals. Free breakfast was a nice surprise. Lots of variety and good quality.

This hostel is in a great location, close to the metro station and tourist trap restaurants.

This is a good place to stay if you aren't staying longer than a week and want an awesome slice of Paris. Not for those that stay in their room most of the day or want to come back early in the day as there is a lock out from late morning until 4pm.

We stayed in Le Regent Hostel July 2012, it is located in the bad section of Paris aka Montmartre, where it is not advisable to leave your hostel after night. Let me give you an idea of the location, my brother walked ten feet from it down the street to the ATM and two gypsy children tried to cover the screen with a piece of paper and pressed more money than he was getting out so they could rob him of it. This was during the day. Also during the day as a woman I could look forward to all the unsavory male characters leering at me in the area. The hostel itself: we walked in and the room still was full of trash from the previous owners, we know because we were the first to check in that day. And their dirty towels were still in the bathroom. And the guy who works at reception is your typical snotty French guy who got mad at me for losing the tiny slip of paper with the overly complicated internet wifi code. So I recommend finding somewhere else in Paris, out of Montmartre, out of this hostel, so you can have a better trip in Paris than we did!

This hostel, although with more of a hotel feeling, is not so welcoming as others, maybe because it's Paris. There are locks in and out of the hotel. You have to ring to get in and the reception are is too small. There are 2 computers to rent and wifi is free if you have good signal in your room. Breakfast is rather poor, not hearty as announced, and laundry services are expensive compared to those in Montmartre district. But the view!!! Day or nite of SacreCoeur from our room was delightful. We were on 6th floor, mini elevator, and it was lovely.

Room Tip: If you may, ask for a room with a view to Sacre Coeur.

What you pay is what you can expect, the location is near a train station which is really helpfull to move arround. However, it is kind of far away from everything good in paris, exept for le monmarte. I didnt really like the location, it just feels like not paris.

We stayed here for 3 nights in July. The location was outside of the center of Paris but the Anvers and Pigalle metro stops were super close and it was a 5 min walk to the Sacre Coeur which was convenient. Walkable from gare du nord and easy to find. The staff were helpful but not overly friendly and all spoke English. 24 hour reception was also nice since we had to check out before 5am.
The room was small and hard to lay out all our luggage but there was a sink inside the room which was nice. Our rooms were cleaned and made everyday. The shared shower on the 5th floor worked fine and was decent but small. there were no hooks to put our towels. The toilet was on the 4th floor and that was kind of annoying especially because there was no sink in there.
The breakfast was tasty (croissants, cereal, OJ, coffee) and simple. There was a washer and dryer for 8 euros, a luggage check room, towels, hair dryer, hand soap, kitchen with silverware and hot plates. No AC but we opened the windows and it was fine. Overall it was a great place to stay in Paris,
