I am looking at a few different locations for my stay in Paris in mid October. I realize that many people may not have stayed in the specific hostels I am more wondering about locations. One location says it is 250 m outside the Latin quarter the other is Montmartre. What do you think about these areas?
The one in Montmartre is on rue Rodier. We used to pass it when we stayed at an apartment on that street. Very nice location, lots of restaurants, bakeries, etc. it is in the 9th arrondissement, transportation close by and convenient. As for the hostel itself, I know nothing.
Here's one take on Paris neighborhoods, from EuroCheapo: http://www.eurocheapo.com/paris/hoods/
Thanks Norma that one is my second choice I am looking at the Plug Inn in the abbess neighbourhood on rue Aristide bruant. The location seems great and it has good reviews as far as hostels go.
