A group of three of us stayed in the "guest house" that is detached from the house. It was wonderful!! It's small but clean, up-to-date, and overall nice! It has a small kitchen, a futon that turns into a bed, a full bathroom and an upstairs loft that sleeps two people. Another benefit is great WiFi! The metro station is a 5-10 minute walk away which is very convenient when traveling into the city and to the airport. Overall this was a great place to stay, I wish we stayed longer!

Staying at Chez Godo was more like a home stay than a hostel. It was shoulder season and we had a large private room upstairs for the price of two beds in a 6-bed dorm. Godo is very friendly and speaks excellent English, so we were able to have many conversations and to meet friends who dropped by occasionally. He seems to be a natural at being a great host. Excellent wifi reliability. Close to Metro. 30 min. to the heart of Paris.
Godo is the best! My girlfriend and I stayed 5 night and would gladly do it again! I would recommend that you do a Google map search of his location so you know what you're getting into. He is in the city of Villejuif which is outside of Paris. He is a short walk from a major metro stop and it takes about 30 minutes and costs about 1,30 Euro to get into the city. There are several grocery stores in his area, and many banks.
The owner, Godo, is a great guy. You are staying in his house, basically as a family guest. Location of his house is 20 minutes outside the city center by metro. The metro station is just 5 minutes walking away from the house. Print your directions before you leave home.
Chez Godo is a very good hostel for travelers which can give you a warm atmosphere in France. The host is a charming man and very friendly. If you cook for him, you can try to request of his French Kiss... :)
