Great location. The hostel is located just a few blocks down from the Gare du Nord station. The attendants were friendly and as helpful as they could be. As an American, I was expecting a bit more english fluency from the people working the front desk, but with travel so straightforward in the city and so many people to talk to, it turned out fine. I stayed in a 2 person room. The accommodations were more than enough; there was even a balcony that over looked the street!

Location is great, just a couple of minutes away from one of the biggest train/metro stations in Paris. The room was clean and staff was nice. If you're looking for a hostel near the main touristic places, I recommend it.

We actually were upgraded to a hotel around the corner and had a wonderful stay there (Hotel Avalon I think?). We stopped into the hostel for local suggestions and were met with very friendly staff. Thanks for everything!

Great location in terms of practicality - only 5 minutes from Gare de Nord and also only 10mins from Monmarte. Area around the station so-so, but for the ease of the journey can't really complain! Secure entry and secure luggage room; friendly helpful staff (who spoke great English); free tea and coffee. Internet proved a bit temperamental to start with but not too bad in the end. I booked a bed in a 4-bed room but got put in a 2 bed room but that suited me nicely! Would stay again.

Had a hard time finding this place, but only because I turned down the wrong street after the traffic circle. I shared a room with a younger woman (one set of bunks) and she had no problem getting here. There was an elevator, late night desk clerk, a kitchen and in-room bathroom, and it was quiet at night. Plenty of dining options in the area. There is also a MonoPrix on the street, but it was closed down, not sure for how long. .

We stayed there twice during our trips to Paris. Definitely recommend Smart Place. Good value for money, nice atmosphere. The nearest shop is just around the corner :) Well-equipped kitchen.

The hostel was little far away from the train attractions' but metro system is very easy to use. I booked a 10 bed mixed dorm, but was put in a 2 bed private room at no extra charge. The staff were very nice and engaging, on my last evening one member of staff got me and two other people over and we played Foosball for about 2 hours! I would definitely stay here again.

A bottle of Water cost 4 Euros. Ridiculous for a hostel. Also the laundry machine made my clothes stink really bad.
