I really left this hostel with a non-decisive taste in my mouth as to whether I actually enjoyed my stay here. There were certain components of the stay that I enjoyed such as the customer service and friendliness of staff at the front desk but then there were other glaring issues that detracted from that positive experience. TIPS First off,...

Staying in La Villette

Neighbourhood Profile
La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to the futuristic space. Though on the outskirts of Paris, La Villette is worth the short Metro ride from the centre.
