Top Paris Hostels, Including Maps and Prices

The Ultimate Accommodation Guide for Paris

Paris is one of the most exciting cities for travelers to visit, but it's definitely not one of the cheapest. The best way to save money on a stay in the City of Light? By booking a stay in a hostel! Hostels in Paris range in price from $25 for a dorm room to $80 for a private room. Here are some of the best options in the city.

    Le Village is located in the Montemarte neighbourhood, which is a bustling area with fantastic views over the city. The hostel is close to a metro station and the famous Moulin Rouge -- you may need to take the metro to other areas of Paris unless you like exploring a city on foot. 

    One of the best features of the hostel is its lively bar where you can drink for more affordable prices than other bars in the city -- the staff sometimes even put on free wine tastings for their guests! 

    Dormitory: $30 (prices may vary)

    Le Village hostel address: 20 Rue D'orsel, 75018, Paris, France

    If you want to save money on food while you're in Paris, opt for a stay at the Absolute Hostel. The breakfast is sizeable and will keep you filled until the afternoon, when the hostel offers free croissants for its guests! 

    The hostel is in a good location, with many cafes and bars nearby, as well as a supermarket to pick up food. The neighbourhood is safe, the staff are friendly, and there's a safe that you can use for free in the hostel, too. 

    Dormitory: $29 (rates may vary)

    Absolute address: 1 Rue de la Fontaine au Roi, 75011 Paris, France

    Avoid party hostels like the plague? If so, Le Montclair Montmarte hostel is for you! This family-friendly hostel is small, quiet, and cosy, and popular with families and couples. 

    It's located close to a metro station, which is useful when staying in Montmarte, many of the rooms have a great view, and the staff are friendly. 

    Dormitory: $29 (rates may vary)

    Le Montclair Montmartre hostel address: 62 Rue Ramey, 75018 Paris, France

    If you like staying in vibrant areas of cities, Young and Happy hostel is for you. The hostel is surrounded by fun restaurants and bars, so you'll never run out of things to see and eat while you're staying here. Be aware, though, that street noise does drift into the hostel, so you'd be wise to pack some earplugs with you.

    The hostel is in more of a local neighborhood, which could be an advantage or disadvantage, depending on what you like. It's far from the tourist attractions (although easily accessible by metro), but gives an authentic look into French life and culture. 

    Dormitory: $29 (rates may vary)

    Young and Happy address: 80 Rue Mouffetard, 75005 Paris, France

    If you want to stay close to all of the tourist attractions, opt for a stint at 3 Ducks Hostel. Just a couple of blocks from the Eiffel Tower, this hostel is clean, conveniently located, and affordable. 

    Breakfast is included, there's a bar to help you meet other travelers, and the kitchen is well-equipped. My favorite feature is the technology in the dorms, where each bed has access to a power socket, light, and several USB ports. 

    Dormitory: $25 (rates may vary)

    Three Ducks address: 6 Place Etienne Pernet, 75015 Paris, France

    Square Caulaincourt offers a free breakfast, free Wi-Fi, and is close to a metro station. It's one of the cheapest options in Paris, so definitely one to look at if you're traveling on a tight budget. It also has one of the best hostel locations in Montmartre, so if you're looking to stay there, this is a good option.

    The rooms are quiet throughout the day and evening, the staff are friendly and happy to help out with recommendations, and the bar is a great place to meet other travelers. 

    Dormitory: $24 (rates may vary)

    Square Caulaincourt address: 2 Square Caulaincourt, 75018 Paris, France
