Location is not the best but the Meininger is definetely setting the bar for youth hostels in Europe.
Le Lys d'Or is not your regular hotel/hostel. Its more like your own little appartment. Very clean and proper, lacks a bit of color and cheerfulness though. It was a bit difficult to find. Location is not the best.
Hotel Marignan is a modest hostel, ran by a friendly older french guy. Staff and decoration are not its best traits but if you have been in Paris before you know those are not easy to find on a budget. I highly recomend this hostel for in PARIS is difficult to find something that has more value for the money.
