It is not easy to find cheap accommodation in Paris, and usually the option of a Hostel brings up images of sweaty dormitories and unwashed students.
But now there is a new brand of hostel in Paris (and other European capitals) – the Hostel Generator Paris
Located in the 10e arrondissment, to the north of the city centre (metro: Jaures) Generator Paris offers interiors you might expect from a smart boutique hotel – stylish bar area, art deco side lamps, modernistic seating – but at a fraction of the price. As well as dormitories, there are smart private rooms – some with roof terraces and hammocks – and lively social areas including a rooftop terrace bar with views across Montmartre. Just a 15 minute walk from Gare Du Nord, you can take a stroll through Buttes-Chaumont park and mix with the locals, wander from art galleries to vintage shops or relax in a café by the Canal St-Martin just a 5 minute walk away!
