Paris is a great city. Don't believe the hype about the attitude. Check out the Eiffel Tower at night. The lights and hundreds of people drinking in the park all night can make for a fun night. Walk up the tower instead of the elevator. It's easy and cheaper. Try French, it's easy and you'll get a much better attitude, as you will anywhere, when you use just a little of the lingo. Merci is not hard to say. Don't miss out on a great city.
Just two tips for Paris: Take a bottle of red wine, some bread, and cheese up to the top of Mont Martre to the steps of the Sacre Coeur at dusk and just gaze. And two: do a Fat Tyre night bike tour from the base of the Eiffel Tower, a great way to review everything you've seen that day as the sun sets in summer!! A truly beautiful city!
You can't really go wrong as far as location goes when you're looking for a hostel in Paris. They're pretty much all within a few blocks of a metro stop, which means you're always about 10-15 minutes from anywhere in Paris. By the way, buy a multi-day metro pass rather than paying for each trip to save money.
My advice is stay in the Latin Quarter for total funkiness! Also, go up the Eiffel Tower at night, other places like Notre Darme and the Arc will give you great views of the city too, so do those in the day and go up the tower in the night time. They do a light show and it's gorgeous. Also, unless you are in Paris for a full week, the travel pass isn't worth it. Just buy individual tickets or walk.
Paris is truly a beautiful city, give yourself plenty of time to see it or you'll miss out. Travel is easy with the Paris Metro, just grab yourself a map and you'll figure it out very quickly. Never be afraid to (politely) ask questions -- the rumors about the typical French coldness is decidedly untrue, and most people will be more than willing to help! The Arc de Triomphe is breathtaking when viewed during sunset, while the Eiffel Tower is best viewed at night. Take the stairs if you're looking for a bit of a workout! Most importantly, don't be afraid to try out a little French! You'll amuse the locals a little, and they will be a lot friendlier with you and overall much more helpful! Bonne chance!
Paris is great! There's a fine cabaret in the Latin Quarter called "Les Trois Maillets" -- be sure to swing by. It gets crazy in the basement later at night and, frankly, just a little bit sketchy.
