Need urgent help today please for hostel in the Marais area

My daughter just called a few minutes ago and said she has just landed at CDG airport about to make her way to Paris for a few days but hasn't booked anything (long story).

Can anyone please suggest a clean, safe hostel for about $80 per night? She wants to stay around the Marais area.

Thanks for any advice.

I think that for a last minute reservation she can't have such a restricted choice ("wants to stay in the Marais area"), she will be lucky enough to find a bed in any hostel! Tell her she should go to the tourist info and ask for help. There are branches in the train stations, here are the adresses:

If you want to help your daughter, but quite frankly it won't be easy with the jetlag issues, try this useful website to check availabilities in any hostel (or tell her to help herself with this website):

Thank you very much. She just sent me a text msg saying she managed to get a bed (last one left) at a hostel in Marais. Hotel des Jeunes (MIJE) - Maubuisson.

I think she was very lucky. Now I can get a good night's sleep.

Thanks again!
