Looking to stay in a hostel during your next trip to Paris? Luckily, we are here to tell you about your three best options! By staying in one of the best-value and nicest hostels in Paris, France, you can save money and have a unique and adventurous travel experience.
The 3 best hostels in Paris:
Why stay in Les Piaules? This is our number one recommendation out of the hostels in Paris, France. It is located in the heart of Belleville, an artsy and cosmopolitan neighborhood in the 11th district of Paris. The hostel is walking distance from the Belleville metro station and just a short ride away from Le Marais and the Louvre. Their “the cosy one” option, which includes a private bathroom, is an excellent choice for solo travelers and couples. You can choose a private room with rooftop access, which we recommend if you’re visiting during the warmer months (Don’t worry, there is air conditioning everywhere in the hostel). You can also stay in a room with 4, 6, or 8 beds if you’re traveling in a group or want to save some extra money. Each bed contains a blackout curtain and a power plug to make your stay more convenient and comfortable. They also have a restaurant and bar, with affordable breakfast, snack, dessert, and drink options. Be sure to try one of their homemade alcoholic slushies if you go to the bar!
Beautiful Belleville Hostel
Another great option in Belleville is the Beautiful Belleville Hostel. It’s located on a relatively quiet street near the Parc des Buttes Chaumot and the metro. While Belleville is not walking distance from many of the main tourist attractions, it provides you with a relaxing, local neighborhood to return to after an exhausting day of adventure. This hostel has private hotel room options starting at 60 euros and shared room options starting at 30 euros per person. All rooms contain a private bathroom and are equipped with towels. Children are welcomed to stay in the private rooms, but not the shared hostel rooms. Breakfast is offered each morning for free (breakfast at Les Piaules is not included) and communal kitchens are available for use 24/7. Lastly, Beautiful Belleville has an elevator, so you don’t have to worry about lugging your suitcases up the stairs!
Le Village Hostel
Le Village is located in the charming, hilly Montmartre district, just a few minutes from Sacré-Coeur. They offer private rooms, triple rooms, quadruple rooms, co-ed dorm rooms, and women only dorm rooms. If you are a solo female traveler looking for a cheap hostel option, we recommend the all-female rooms for you. If you are travelling with small children, baby cribs are available for free upon request. You can also rent a bike or a car and organize your airport transport through the hostel, although we recommend utilizing Uber and public transport once you are in Paris. Each room is serviced with daily housekeeping and there is an elevator, terrace, and shared kitchen. The communal spaces are vibrant and fun, with northern African décor, making this a particularly good option if you are a young traveler looking to socialize with other guests.
When browsing your hostel options, be sure to look out for reviews about the cleanliness of the beds and bathrooms. Also, do not assume that all hostels have elevators – many require you to take the stairs!
