“Not worth it”
Reviewed 22 September 2010

Recently stayed at the Regent Hostel in Paris...not worth it. I believe there's a hotel portion and a hostel portion. Not sure if the hotel side is any better but the hostel portion was not worth the money. The directions on the website/reservation actually led us to their 'sister hostel' which looked much nicer. The beds are not labelled so it is difficult to tell which beds are being used/which are not. The 3 nights we were there, none of the sheets in any of the beds were changed so someone new who came in the last night had to sleep in dirty bedding. Where our room was located (2nd floor) it was ridiculously noisy. I understand in a hostel there's going to be noise, but this was so bad you couldn't sleep at all and there's not even an on-site bar. I would not return.

We got a double bed room. We had our own bathroom. The room was clean, and spacious. We were able to leave our bags for free before checkin and for the day after we checked out. The staff was very friendly. The hotel is located near a pickup for the hop-on-hop-off bus route and the metro which was convienent for us.

We were on a tight budget for a week in Paris and we looking basically for just a clean room with a private bathroom to let us sleep at night. This is pretty much what we got. No frills, but it was clean and we had a clean bathroom with hot water.

It's not a hidden gem. I believe the TV remote was broken, but the tv worked with limited french programming. Unfortunately we were on the second floor...so every morning we heard the delivery trucks or garbage trucks come by. As a fairly heavy sleeper...it was easy enough to wake up and then go back to sleep.

We spent the rest of our time outside traveling Paris from breakfast (7-8am) all the way up until 10pm or midnight.

The nearby sex shops didn't bother me, and it was in a decent walking distance from other locations.

I would stay here again based on the price and cleanliness if my goal is to just have a room for the night.

Turn left out of the tiny, cramped lobby and you're just a few minutes walk from Moulin Rouge and all of the sex shops you could want. Not quite the perfect vacation with a teenagers. Beautiful view of Sacred Couer from the balcony in the cramped, rundown room with the bathroom that leaked when our neighbors ran water. No towels, no sheets without paying extra. No laundry facility. Poor breakfast of cereal or croissants and coffee (no tea). No fruit. No cheese. No convenient refrigerator for my leftovers. While the French have a reputation for being rude, the staff surpassed that, offending each member of our party with newer lower standards of service. The boulevard outside the hostel stinks of urine, which given the number of sex shops in the area is not a surprise. The hostel is far from Charles deGaulle, but quite convenient to the Metro. The tiny rooms were quiet, if damp. The elevator was large enough for 1 person with a suitcase, otherwise you'll be lugging your things up a spiral staircase.

I stayed at this hotel over a long weekend with three friends. We were in town for an LCD Soundsystem concert and a few big nights out, so we really weren't too worried about star ratings. This is where I note that the Regent probably has more in common with a hostel than a hotel - large communal areas with refrigerators for backpackers to keep their food, etc.
The Regent is well situated on the main street leading through Montmartre, a short walk from the Sacre Coeur and 15-minute away from Gare du Nord train station. We booked a 4-bed room and actually ended up with 5: two bunks and a single. Bedding is given to us in a plastic bag: make your own.
There was plenty of space for our backpacks, but not much in the way of natural light (a good thing in our case). The bathroom was a bit run-down, but clean enough. Looking back at my review so far I can see I'm hardly pouring praise on the place. But I would stay here again as long as the people I'm traveling with are happy to ratchet down the expectations. This place is cheap and practical. Not romantic.

I would happily stay here again. The surrounding area was vibey and the Sacré-Cœur is beautiful and fun at night. The hotel was clean and as expected. It is close to many different forms of transport and is a very quick walk from the gard du noord train station. Our room's window looked into a court yard, which blocked in noise at night. If it is your first time in Paris you will enjoy this area and the morning vista from the Sacré-Cœur.
