    Peace and Love Hostel


    An expensive place in comparison to other hostels in Europe, but Paris is an expensive city. The rooms were tiny with 3 bunk beds in each room, but all had en-suite bathrooms. There was a bar on the ground floor that doubled as a reception area and a kitchen in the basement. The location was not great for walking around Paris, but it was right next to a metro station so getting around Paris was fairly easy.

    Like Sleeping in a Sardine Can!


    Out of all the hostels I have stayed in throughout Europe I would have to rate this one of the worst experiences I have had with a hostel. For one the rooms were extraordinarily small, even by European standards. What makes it worse is that they jam three bunk beds into a room that really could barely support even one bed. The showering facility was inset into the wall and was about the size of a fridge. The housekeeping was poor, I stayed there four nights and only once did they turn down the bed. The front desk was run by a bunch of twenty something guys barely old enough to drink and barely equipped to pour a drink much less run a hostel. I would not recommend staying here at all, regardless of the cost.

  • THE Hostel to stay in


    I have stayed at this hostel twice now and it is by the far the best hostel in Paris.
    There is a bar downstairs where the travellers hang out and where other people from the district come along to drink as the atmosphere is so great.

    The price of the stay is relatively cheap, but is well worth the extra couple of euros for functioning toilets, great service and an amazing atmosphere.

    Unique Quality: Internet downstairs at the bar. About 2 euros for twenty minutes. Cheap beer. A kitche. A room to store luggage.

    Directions: From Gare de Lyon: Take Line 1 towards Château de Vincennes and change at Nation. Then take Line 2 and get off at Jaurès. It is a five minute walk from the metro station.

    Great bar w/ a hostel


    Peace & Love is basically a bar with a guest kitchen downstars and some rooms upstairs. That being said, I had a great time during my stay here. Our room was very clean and modern, and suprisingly quiet despite being only 2 floors above the bar. The staff was great and made sure that everyone was having a great time. The drinks were a bit pricey, but everything is in Paris. This is a great place to stay for anyone looking for a youth hostel. However, with the bar being the only common area and the drinks being so expensive, a long stay here could prove to be quite costly.

    Unique Quality: Offer guided tours of Sacre Cour and the Montmartre area for a very reasonable price

    Directions: Montmartre

    I just love the name


    I haven't actually stayed here but it's right across the street from where I live and I can see it from my window. I'm posting this tip because I've read some negative reviews about the neighborhood (on tripadvisor) which I think you can safely ignore. The area is transitioning; canal Saint Martin is getting ever trendier, there is a big new cinema complex etc. so I've posted some photos of it and the bassin de la Villette for you to check out if you are worried. Of course you must be a young "party" type person to enjoy your stay here but all the same the neighborhood is not that bad. Even if you don't want to stay here I suggest you check out the website. It's excellent!

    Unique Quality: Convenient to metro. The Juares station right across the street on line 5 is direct to Gare du Nord and Gare de l'Est. There is a little café downstairs. I stopped by and they seem friendly enough and said that yes I could visit a room (but only in the morning and I haven't yet had the time to go).

    Directions: 10th arrondisement, metro Stalingrad or Juares

    Peace & Love Hostel


    Ok, I looked on the web for somewhere cheap to stay & close to the Metro.
    Ta-da, I picked the Peace & Love Hostel.
    The staff there were great! They had plenty of tips and info to talk to you about.
    The facilities were pretty bland, but you get what you pay for. The rooms are small and so is the stairwell you need to carry your stuff up to ur room. But they are relatively clean and warm in winter.
    Things can get a little crazy as there is a bar downstairs, but I meet plenty of great people and I'd stay there again.

    Unique Quality: *Cafe/Bar in hostel
    *Close to Metro
    *Friendly staff

    Directions: Jaures

    Try and book accomodation prior to arrival.


    It is adequate, but the brochure makes this place look like a palace and that it is NOT!
    You have to climb several flights of narrow,steep and rickety stairs to get to most of the rooms.

    Unique Quality: Has a cool bar and nice staff except for this one *** that couldn't speak any language. He was scary looking and made us uncomfortable. All in all a nice bar, but internet is a piece of junk and it gets crowded at times

    Directions: Lafayette Region
    245 Rue La Fayette,

    It's pretty affordable for a double here, only €50 a night. And dorm rooms are €18 for a mattress and €22 for a bed in a triple.

    Unique Quality: It's a backpacker's hostel, what else can I say? The staff was friendly and not too boring or uptight, it's next to 2 subway lines. There's no curfew which is great and they don't kick you out of your room for the day.
