Best Hostels in Paris – dorm beds and private rooms

With our Best Hostels in Paris list, we want to help people find the best place to stay in Paris on a budget. Paris was always a problem area to find decent value and good quality hostels. Fortunately, things are changing with very cool hostels in Paris. What defines luxury today is not a comfortable bed, lots of accessories or a private bathroom. It is more a combination of stylistic design, cool vibe, and good facilities.

What are your main criteria to find good hostels in Paris? The hostel’s location? The hostel’s atmosphere? Its facilities? The hostel price? Look no further, we have listed below the top hostels in Paris (in our opinion), the perfect places to start and finish your days in a good atmosphere, good company . . . and everything on a budget. The list includes Paris hostels for couples and family hostels in Paris, with beautiful private rooms for those looking for more privacy while staying on a budget. If you are looking for party hostels in Paris, there is also something for you.

Unfortunately, central locations mean higher prices so there are not many cool hostels near Eiffel Tower or Le Marais. We see this as an opportunity to discover other lesser known areas of Paris and enjoy Paris Like a Local. Our Best Hostels in Paris List is classed by Paris Arrondissement, with a short description about each district of Paris. If you want to know more about the districts of Paris before booking your Paris hostel, check out our quick guide to Paris Arrondissements.

NB: hostel prices may change depending on the season, week /weekend stay or hostel’s internal promotions

    I think this is invaluable for backpackers to Paris. The prices are ok in a city that’s well know for being so expensive. Some years back, I remember staying in a no-frills hotel for about 30Euros I think. but I forgot the name of the hotel . It was close to big bus stand.

    This made me realize the Parisian’s flair for artistic design. These hostels are so charming and cute! I love the play of colors, I’ve been wanting to design my apartment this way but I can’t do it.

    It’s nice to see that hostels are stepping up their game. Just because they cost less, doesn’t mean that their quality has to be bad. I especially like when hostels offer female only dorms or ones with curtains, just to have a little bit more privacy. Location is also very important. You have a great list here, but I think my favorite would have to be Saint Christopher’s Inn Canal.

      Good pic, perhaps it is less intimate but they have a great location 😉

    My son is heading to Paris and I have to say this is perfect timing since he will be staying in hostels. This is a great list and huge help in this circumstance. Thanks so much for your post!

    I’ve never stayed in a hostel before and perhaps I have preconceived notions about why it is not right for me but these are really superb! Paris certainly does hostels much better than some country’s I have seen. Really beautiful accommodations.

      thank you! let’s say that hostels have worked hard to improve its comfort standards and visitors’ general experience 😉

    We love staying in hostels, they always seem to offer so much more than hotels and at a friendly price! Although these are more expensive than we are used to staying in, but I suppose it is Paris!

      Yes, Nic . . . this is Paris 😉

    This is a very useful guide to hostels in Paris. Hotel rooms can be extremely expensive in Paris and that is where hostels come in as the more affordable alternative.
    Just to add, love the photo of Le Village Hostel with the view of Basilica of the Sacred Heart.

      yes, it must be great to wake up with a view like this 🙂

    What a helpful resource for budget travelers! I love how all the rooms look so clean, but they never really look like that in real life 😛
    I like hostels that are close to the city center and that are safe. I generally like to stay in female only rooms, just for my own peace of mind, but I’ll stay in mixed dorms if I have to.

      Yes, I also prefer female rooms. And if they are ensuite then I have everything that I need 😉

    Wow all of these hostels look so chic w/t such lovely and modern decor. Would love to stay in one of these. Especially liked that St christophers inn has curtains – SO imp to have some privacy in your dorm, eh!

      Yes the curtains in the bunkbeds are a big invention! 🙂

    This is a great list of hostels at affordable prices and awesome locations!! I remember researching for hours on neighborhoods, hotels, hostels, airbnbs, attractions, how far everything was from everything…it’s a complicated city for someone who’s never been there. This is a great post to lay everything out and help someone like me make a decision!!

      Thank you very much for your comment Lyssie. I am also a traveler so I know on my own skin how difficult is to find a good accommodation option when you don’t know about the city, the different areas and main sights. I am happy to know this post can be useful 🙂

    I love that these all look so clean and nice. My biggest criteria for hostels was a private room that was exceptionally clean and that wasn’t a rowdy crazy place. I don’t think it’s too much to ask for in a hostel. Paris is definitely more difficult because of the prices, but you’ve got so many great options here.

    Très bonne. It’s been a while since I have been to Paris but great to know you can still get a private room under 70 euro. I was noticing from the pictures that some of the dorms look like they offer lockable storage. Is this a common feature or something that varies from hostel to hostel. Locking my camera equipment and laptop while I roam the city seems like a must have feature to me.

      Jenn, at the end of the post there is a comparative table where you can see which hostels offer lockable storage 😉

    Wow, some of these look like 3-4 star hotels! I remember Paris hotel rooms being quite pricey, maybe next time we will try one of these! Thanks for the tips.

    • WorldInParis
      02/18/2017 at 8:12 pm

      Yes, hotels still are quite pricey 🙁 Luckily you can find in these hostels here cool options for all ages and states of mind

    Thanks for sharing this I have been wanting to go to Paris but it always seems so expensive so maybe I could look at saying in a hostel as these look really nice. I don’t really do sharing so would have to find one where I get my own room lol

    • WorldInParis
      02/18/2017 at 8:14 pm

      Most of these hostels propose also private rooms 🙂

    Hostels came to be a wonderful option to run from the hotel high prices, specially in cities like Paris. Thanks for sharing this list and all the information.

    As I was scrolling through this admiring all the hostels I was thinking to myself what a struggle it would be to pick between them and to remember my favourites! Thanks for adding the comparative table at the end, this was really needed! I really like you’ve got a range of hostels with varying prices, tastes and locations. If you can’t find a good hostel from this list you’re too fussy! Brilliant, informative article.
