“Easy”
Reviewed 10 September 2012 via mobile

With the open kitchen it's real easy to cook your own meals; the venues are clean and tidy in general. The rooms are simple and neat. Incredible location; walking distance to every tourist hotspot in Paris basically. There's free WiFi access but it really only covers the lounge area and not the rooms. Otherwise; nice place, whorthy of the price because of the location and the kitchen (and free breakfast I guess).

Le Regent is close to the main train station and reasonably priced. Our first room was ridiculously noisy until 3am-ish and I had a lot of trouble sleeping. Nothing was ever working in the hostel and the nice and friendly staff always seemed to be fighting their own computer system, door key system or elavators (which did not work across the four days we were there). Breakfast was basic but reasonable.

I stayed here mostly because i love the film Amelie and wanted to stay in Montmatre, and it turned out to be a nice little find! We stayed in a double room on the top floor with an en suite, the room is small and basic with the bathroom nearly as big as the room itself but for what you're paying its pretty good. A great feature is the balcony with an amazing view of sacre coeur probably the best you could get! Only problem is how hot it gets at night, and since it was august it was already boiling outside, so we had to sleep with the balcony doors open. You might want to invest in a fan when you get there!
i thought the breakfast considering it was free was perfectly alright, would probably advise to go earlier rather than later as the eating area is small and you might end up with nowhere to sit.
All the staff here are lovely and couldn't be more helpful in my experience, there were a few problems such as the lift being INSANE and room being an oven but overall can't complain.
As for the surrounding area its mostly nice however with all touristy areas you get weirdos trying to do weird things, would avoid sacre coeur after dark as i was approached several times by creepy men, and even followed at one point. However in the day its lovely and Anvers metro station is just over the road, you go anywhere in Paris from here.
I would stay here again, was mostly young travellers like me but there are some older people too so don't be put off!

I travelled to Paris on 2011 and stayed with my family and friends for 4 nights here mainly because of the excellent location and reasonable prices. We think the rooms are small and the cleaning should be better. At breakfast we had limited choices and 1 day we had to wait for a refill but the quality was ok.

Room Tip: there are rooms with a view to Sacre Coeur but more expensives

We stayed here at the start of our inter-railing trip and we really enjoyed the area. The hostel was decent but could really use some updating! Our 4-bed dorm was very small, but it did have the convenience of having a bathroom/shower in it. The bathroom itself had paint peeling all over and the shower was a bit mouldy. The room was facing the main road and had a small balcony that was nice to sit out on during the day, but when it came to sleeping at night..forget it. It was so hot in the room that you had to have the door to the balcony open, but it was very noisy, as it appeared that no one actually sleeps in Montmarte. The breakfasts were ok, considering they were free. Delicious croissants! To comment on the area, as I have noticed people have expressed concern: we found it to be very safe, even at night. I would be cautious about the area surrounding the Sacre Coeur, but this would be obvious for any touristy areas. If you are not an idiot tourist, you will be fine. I wouldn't stay at this hostel again, but I would stay in the area again for sure!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not on the main street if you want any chance of sleeping.

We stayed in a private double room for 3 nights in June. Our first impression of the hostel was not good. The guy that checked us in was incredibly rude. He told me to fill out a questionnaire then snatched it away while I was still filling it out. Later on we paid for a hot chocolate from the hot drink machine in the common room and it spat out a cup of hot water ... so we gingerly told the guy at reception, he slammed down some coins on the counter and told us sharply "Then don't use it! There's a kitchen!". The rest of the staff we met after our first night were very friendly.
The room was really quite good for inexpensive (for Paris) accommodation. It had a television, a decent size bathroom and a balcony. Not much of a view though.
The hostel is located in a pretty ugly and filthy area but it is very close to Anvers metro station and Sacre Couer.
The breakfast was nothing to boast about. Coffee, juice and only one breadroll or croissant. The laundry facilities were inadequate. Only one washing machine and one dryer for the entire hostel. It wasn't cheap either and the dryer didn't even work very well.
We didn't feel welcome here and I don't think we'll stay here again.

A friend and I stayed here as our first stop on our inter-rail trip, the hostel itself was grand. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm, there was sufficient space and was nice and clean and breakfast was ok. We chose to stay here as it was close to the train station, this was a bad idea as the area was very dodgy, we got followed and approached by several strange men, day and night, not a nice way to start our holiday, scary to say the least.
