Exceptional value for money, very helpful staff and a free breakfast too! Wifi, a nice community lounge area, and the location is at the foot of sacre couer, so one of the best views in paris is only a 5 min walk. Gare du nord can be walked to or accessed in minutes via the metro. I was travelling solo and really enjoyed it here. It was a little loud at night [hence the sleep quality rating], but that was not really the hostel's fault. There's a nice outdoor seating area too that's a chill place to smoke a cigar.

Room Tip: Maybe a room further from the road would be quieter? I was in the room over the main entrance, which...

The hostel well connected with metro station, just 3-4 mins walk from Anvers. And very close to Sacred Heart Basilica of Montmartre. The staffs are helpful for guiding around the paris.The breakfast was reasonable. The internet was working good for sometime but sucks most of the other times.
The rooms are clean but need a complete cleaning again.
The room recent are reasonable for backpackers, being traveled solo i feel its a good place.

Decent standard budget accommodation.

Anvers metro station is 5 minutes walk away, it was 45 euros in a taxi early in the morning with no traffic to CDG airport although the hostel can book this journey for you for 18 euros each. 15 minute walk from Gare Du Nord. Decent location near Sacre Coeur.

The hostel itself was fine, with good security at night not letting in strangers. There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. Wouldn't say the area was great but we didn't feel threatened either. Lots of hustlers and street traders nearby but that is just Paris for you.

Room was basic with ensuite bathroom, aircon functioned poorly and wouldn't like to stay during the summer months when Paris gets pretty warm. Staff were fine and charged phones free of charge, rang taxis and helped with directions.

Hostel seemed very quiet and wouldn't have thought this was a great place for solo travellers.

Friendly staff, well prepared for all kind of inquiries. Cleanliness/ tidiness could improve in common areas. Rooms need a deep clean. I would recommend the place anyway for backpackers, easygoing travellers or the ones interested in nightlife since the location is near pubs area

Room Tip: More than 4 ppl in the room could be noisy

Stayed here for 3 nights and got exactly what I wanted from this little hostel + more -clean facilities, friendly staff, descent breakkie plus the added bonus of a funky little parisian terrace that looks out to the sacre coeur (which is literally just around the corner from the hostel!). Le village has really found a good balance between the homely+comfortable/social+party hostel dichotomy that often others don't seem to get right. It's just as easy to meet fellow travellers as it is to get a good nights sleep.

Oh, and just a small tip: and stay in the female 4 bed dorm if you get the chance! It's right on the terrace with a private bathroom :)

I stayed at Le Village with a friend for three nights and I must say it was a great experience. We had a mix up with our reservations but the staff helped us sort it out. The location was a bit sketchy at night but the hostel itself was great. We had our private room and bathroom which was nice. I would definitely go back there.

Located in Montmartre the funky, arty part of Paris Le Village hostel is basically at the foot of the Sacre Coeur (sacred church). It's a great area to be based in (kind of reminds me of the Lanes in Brighton a bit) however, it's a 30 minute walk to Central Paris and 45 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower for example. Having said that, In Montmartre itself there are lots of lovely restaurants, cafe's and bars so you don't need to go very far to get food and drink. There is also a supermarket directly opposite the hostel for picking up anything you need. Staff in the hostel were really friendly and always happy to help and give tips on where to go. Breakfast is included in the price (7.30-9.30am) which is basic but will fill you up until lunchtime.We met some great people whilst we were there (Egyptian, Taiwanese, Brazilian) and everyone who stayed in the hostel was friendly and considering it was my first ever hostel experience i felt very relaxed and at home. The bonus of being a bit further out of town is that you walk the street of Paris and get a real feel for the place (or if you're lazy jump on the metro which is 2 minutes from the hostel!)
