Not perfect, but better than most

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 24, 2007

This was the first place I stayed on my first solo trip and I made sure I went back as the last place on my most recent trip. It's not perfect, but to be honest you're not going to find a perfect hostel in Paris; they all have things like lockouts, curfews, charging for linen... I don't know why these things seem to exist in Paris but nowhere else. But it is a good hostel, and I'd definitely recommend staying here.

Unique Quality: Nice bar area, small courtyard for smokers, a cat, beds are pretty comfortable...It's in a really nice area, close to the Sacre Couer. And there's half a VW Beetle in the bar. They play the Doors when they put you on hold on the telephone (it's THAT kind of place); I get the feeling they'd like to make it a lot more relaxed rule-wise but that doesn't seem to be allowed in Paris. The staff do vary though, between extremely friendly and helpful and downright rude. Linen costs extra, which is a pain.

Directions: Nearest Metro is Anvers, cross the park/square, down the hill a bit.

Nice cozy entrance, the staff are obliging. Breakfast is not that great, you know, bread, jam and butter, hot chocolate, tea and coffee. As always! But bread is good, at least you don't get the sandwich type bread. Showers are fine, though you have to watch out cause it can get very hot.

Rooms can be noisy if you're next to the bathroom and you have to carry your own sheets, but they are clean. Kitchen is fine as pans and stuff you may refer. It gets a little bit smelly once used cause it has little ventilation.

It's not a party hostel, but you can here noise from now to then. Bad thing is the curfew at 2am, but anyway, who the hell wants to be out more than that as expensive as Paris is?? lol

Directions: As you go out from Gare du Nord turn right to rue Maubege until rue Condorcet where you turn right until rue Rodier, then left and you got it (5-10 minut walk). From Anvers just go down, and a little bit to right to rue Rodier (5 minut walk).

Typical Hostel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 20, 2005

I really don't know... I went in and went to sleep or talked on the phone. The shower kind of sucked. It was push-button operated, with no temperature choice (if I remember correctly). You push the button, warm-hot water comes out for a few minutes and then it turns off. Repeat.

There is a little courtyard and a kitchen if you feel like cooking. I didn't stay long enough to cook, nor would I on a trip like this---it was important to me to experience cultural food wherever I go. Breakfast included.

Unique Quality: Close to the subway, not a bustling part of town. Near the Elysee-Monmartre (Does anyone remember that line from the Roots song?) Near lots of bakeries and a grocery store. Narrow, quaint street. Near the Sacre-Couer.

Directions: Montmartre:
Exit Metro: Anvers

Hostel Woodstock

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 23, 2003

After travelling around Europe with a stack of Aussies and Kiwis it was a a welcome relief to arrive at Hostel Woodstock. Not an antipodean in sight! Instead, I met Colombians, Quebec-ers and a Californian hippie who all spoke fluent French. Such a change from drunken oafs from Newcastle wailing 'Waltzing Matilda'!

Woodstock is located in the heart of Montmartre - the district where Picasso, Braque and their 'boho' buddies used to hang out in the 1910s. Montmartre still retains a bohemian vibe, with jazz music wafting into the hostel at all hours and conversations likely to turn to philosophy or avant-gard film. Pretentious? Maybe. But at least it offers something different to most of the hostels on the Western Europe Contiki-fied route.

Unique Quality: Like many hostels, breakfast is included, but at Woodstock it is a very generous serving of hot chocolate, coffee, brioche and jams or butter. Also has a kitchen (very small) and a courtyard. Great, and friendly, reception staff. A huge supply of 'Minute Maid' (both orange and apple) and some alcohol. Only qualm was that the showers were a wee bit cold ... Oh yeah! And it's right near Sacre Couer, a supermarket, the Moroccan Quarter (les goutes d'or) and a whole heap of bookshops!

Directions: Ummm get off at METRO stop Anvers and it is a short walk from there.
