I chose to stay by the Gare du Nord for my last night in Paris so I was close to the Subway station to get to the airport. I stayed at the Smart Place Hostel which I loved! Amazing location! Seriously, anyone who only has a night or a few in Paris should stay by the Gare du Nord. This...

My sister and I stayed while we were backpacking and it was everything we were looking for. The location couldn't be better. Only a 5 minute walk from Gare Du Nord which is the central most transportation hub. There's a supermarket right around the corner which goes perfectly with the fact the hostel has an adorable kitchenette. We got the...

Convenient location, pleasant quiet rooms, very helpful staff. Having the lift is really helpful. Pleasant, shared common area makes it easy to meet other travellers. A little difficult to find but it is just past the intersection on Rue De Dunkerque which forks off to the left. Highly recommended.

I had a room for myself. It was clean, tidy, with a flatscreen. But you dont really have any room for more luggage than a small bag. Also there could have been a lamp in the ceiling. The room was very dark when I shut the curtains. Dark curtains though, you dont wake up in the morning because of light...

We only stayed one night but it got the job done. The staff is incredibly kind and helpful, and the hotel is about 5 blocks from Gare Paris Est, which is very convenient. The rooms are super tiny, so do not expect any frills, but they are clean and comfortable. We had a private bathroom which again was very tiny...
