    This is a hostel that offers basic dormitory rooms with bunk beds for 4, 5 or 6 people as well as private rooms with double beds. The dormitory places are very cheap, but the double rooms are around 80 euros. There's a common area with kitchen, games, computers and free wifi. It's a great place to meet other young travellers. The place is just off Gare du Nord, which is convenient if you arrive by train, but otherwise this neighborhood is not the nicest in Paris.

    If you are a young backpacker, you might find the place amusing, but if you want a double room, there are better, real hotels available at the same rate.

    Smart Place is a great, inexpensive option for lodging in Paris, especially if you're looking to meet other young travelers. The common room has games, laptops for rent, a guitar, a kitchen space, drinks, and allows guests to sit and relax together. The staff is international and friendly and as far as rooms go, the options are 5 beds, 4 beds, and even doubles, so no dormitory style here.
    Smart Place is right near Gare du Nord, which is practical is you're coming to Paris by rail. Otherwise, this neighborhood is slightly out of the way, but very well connected by metros and buses.

    This hostel is located close to Gare du nord, making it a great place for backpackers to stay while in Paris before heading off to Belgium or London.

    The common areas include a fully equipped kitchen, a computer area, a small inner courtyard where you can enjoy a drink in the summer, and a lounge complete with storage lockers and a foosball table. Flags of all countries are hung outside and around the lobby, making everyone feel immediately welcomed. The staff is also very young and bubbly and is happy to give you directions or answer any of your questions while in Paris.

    Shared rooms range from 4, 5 or 6 people, so they are not too crowded and you are sure to meet friends. The private double rooms face the courtyard but aren’t much cheaper than a budget hotel so I don’t really see the appeal.

    While nothing fancy, this is an excellent budget hotel option that is located just a few blocks away from Gare de Nord train station which makes access to the rest of the city very easy. The rooms are quite small as expected in Paris and the shower is even smaller. While it is a tight fit, it is comfortable enough. I especially liked the large windows that you could open up and look down on the street from. The hotel attendant can offer you some great travel advice on what to see and how to get there, but he is definitely friendlier with women than men. i guess all french men are like that though.
