    I haven’t stayed in a hostel in a long time, and I had the worst experience when I stayed at a hotel in France. I wonder how prices compare to AirBnb… Thanks for sharing!

      I think that difference between hostel /airbnb is not only a matter of price. It also depends on the kind of experience you are looking for

    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.
