Quick Introduction to Paris

Average price for a bed: Hostels in Paris cost 23€ – 35€ per night for a bed in a dorm. A private room starts from 45€ up to 130€ per night. This is a rough average, just to give you an idea.

Prices always depend on the season and holidays. Please always check the exact rates on Hostelworld.com and Hostelz.com. Hostelz compares prices, so this is a good hack to get better prices.

City Tax: Like other very popular tourist destinations, Paris has an extra ‘tourist tax.’ Some Paris Backpacker hostels do not include this city tax in their shown price. The city tax in Paris for a hostel is 1.90€ per night. Please keep this in mind and check before making your final booking!

Check-In and Check-Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3 pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11 am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.

Best hostels in Paris for Couples

The best hostel in Paris for couples is The People – Paris Belleville.

It is the best boutique hostel that comes with a romantic touch as well as that social factor we all enjoy in hostels.

It is the kind of luxury hostel couples will love for sure. There are different types of private rooms, so carefully check when booking.

All private rooms come with real double beds. A real double bed means one king-size bed (and not two separate beds pushed together as one!). Hostelz also says it is one of the best hostels in Paris with Private rooms.

One type of double room has shared facilities. The other one comes with a private bathroom. 

All private rooms (and all dorms) feature super fast-WiFi.

  • social ambiance

Stay at FIAP Jean Monnet, and you’ll be just 20 minutes from the Latin Quarter and Eiffel Tower – grab your free city map and explore!

Tours & Activities in Paris

We highly recommend joining some tours and activities. Just ask at the hostel reception for some handpicked recommendations.

Here’s our guide to 27 fun things to do in Paris, including a night cruise, a “fight bar” and restaurants.

However, you should book three things to do in Paris in advance. Obviously, the most important ones not to miss are the first two:

1. Eiffel Tower

The most famous symbol of Paris cannot be missed.

There are plenty of people who want to visit it. Therefore, we recommend you get your ticket to the Eiffel Tower.

This way, you will be able to skip the 2-3 hours line.

Book Eiffel Tower here

Best Hostels in Paris

2. Louvre Museum

Same goes for the world-famous Louvre. You know, the museum in the heart of the city where the Mona Lisa lives.

Just book your Louvre ticket beforehand and skip this long and annoying queue.

This way, you save 2 hours of your travel time. We recommend booking with Get Your Guide. It is our preferred way to book tickets around Europe. Tiqets.com is another good website for buying sightseeing tickets.

Check here our review of Tiqets.com

4. Paris Catacombs (unique!!)

Legendary, scary, and interesting!

The Paris Catacombs are quite something and are incredibly unique. Go underground and experience the dark side of the French capital. Night tours are also available – a perfect thing to do in Paris at night!

Good to know: There is also an audio guide, which we highly recommend!

Even better to know: Make sure you purchase your ticket beforehand. There is usually a looooong line.

You can skip the line by getting your ticket beforehand.

Things to Know before you go

If this is your first time travelling to Paris, France there are a few useful and important things to know and consider before you arrive.

Here is a list of what we think will be helpful for your planning.

Best areas to Stay in Paris

For more of an arty experience, we recommend staying in Belleville – it’s full of bars, restaurants and shops.

Belleville has a metro station which links to all of the major sights in Paris. The historical centre is also only 10-minutes away on foot.

Marais is the trendiest area in this city. Expect hipsters everywhere you turn! It is uber cool to be fair, so head here if you fancy some good dining and a cool place to enjoy a drink.

7th Arrondissement (neighborhood) is where you want to be situated if you prefer to be close to the top sights such as the Eiffel Tower and Musee d’Orsay.

How long should it take to visit Paris?

Honestly, we’d say you need a good 3-5 days to explore Paris properly.

As you can imagine, this city has so much to offer! Obviously, the longer you stay, the more relaxed your time can be here.

In 3 days, it’s possible to visit the Eiffel Tower, climb the Arc de Triomphe and stuff your face silly with street food. For those who love to watch the world go by from the comfort of a coffee shop, add an extra day or two!

When is the best time to visit Paris?

If you can, avoid the peak summertime! This is obviously to beat the crowds (and heavier price points)

We’d recommend visiting between April and June when the weather is just fine. June tends to be more stable weather-wise, and this is when the tourist crowds haven’t yet gone too crazy yet.

The cheapest time to visit is during the winter months – December, January, and February.

Transport in Paris

Believe it or not, Paris is actually great for walking. To get from one end of the city to the other will only take 2 hours!

Otherwise, you can get around using these other methods:

  • Velib – a huge bicycle-sharing system dotted around the city. Super cheap (1€ for half hour)
  • Metro (1.90€ per ticket)
  • Tram
  • Bus & night bus (64 different lines)

Tickets for all of the above (except bicycles) can be bought at automatic ticket machines in metro stations, in tobacconists, and online at the website parisinfo.com

What are the best hostels in Paris city centre?

Generator Paris, The People - Paris Belleville (ex Les Piaules) and St. Christopher's Inn are all within a short metro ride to the city centre.
