Île-de-France Comments

Stay in the Latin Quarter if you want to see the "tourist" Parigi. Stay in Montmartre if you want to live like a Parisian.
Walk everywhere when possible. Go to all the major tourist stuff - the reason these things are so popular is because they really are that beautiful! But don't forget the rest of Parigi. Spend some time down by the canal, go to the Parc de Belleville & Buttes Chaumont, Chinatown in the 13th etc. Look up - or you'll miss a lot of the architecture. Sounds dumb I know, but you'd be surprised... Smile at people and make an effort to speak French. Enjoy!
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 Parigi for a full week, the travel pass isn't worth it. Just buy individual tickets or walk.
Parigi is wonderful. I just finished backpacking across Europe for 5 weeks and it is my favourite place! Try the Berthillon gelato on the Island. Accept no substitutes...it is the best stuff you will ever eat. Also try a Chocolate Crepe with real chocolate (not Nutella). It may be on the menu as Crepe du Chocolate du Maison. And try to speak some French! The locals will laugh with you, try to help you and overall be friendlier. Oh, and watch for the dog poop on the sidewalks!
Parigi is amazing, I fell in love with it and so do most people. I have to say the Eiffel Tower and the more touristy sites were a little bit of a disappointment. On the other hand Montmartre and places like the Sacre Couer were amazing. But seriously screw what they say about French attitude, people are fantastic.
You can't really go wrong as far as location goes when you're looking for a hostel in Parigi. 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.
