Description

The Hostelz.com Review

Hôtel 'Le Régent Montmartre' is a cute hostel tucked away just a block downhill from Sacre Coeur in Montmartre, an adorable, artistic, and truly French section of Paris that can't be missed.

The Location

The hostel is literally half a block from the Anvers metro station, which is extremely helpful, since the Paris metro is one of the best in the world.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorm rooms have metal bunk beds and a desk. Around the room there are book lights and power outlets placed near the bunks, so you can easily charge your stuff under your pillow while you sleep. You get a keycard to open your room as well as the lobby door, so it's pretty secure. The bathrooms have large shower tubs and a nice mirror and sink, and the water is hot and strong all the time, so no worries about cold showers here.

Common Spaces

There is a common room in the front where the Wi-Fi is available, with lots of tables and sitting chairs, and vending machines for snacks and drinks. There is also a kitchen and a public dining room for those who want to cook their own meals. A continental breakfast is included, and its pretty good, with croissants or toast, cereal, hot and cold drinks, and fresh fruit.

Summary

Overall the Regent is a great place for someone who needs an easily accessible location, clean and effective housing, and some quiet time, since it doesn't seem to be much of a party hostel. If you're traveling alone or looking to make new friends while traveling, this hostel is pretty quiet and not very full, so you might want to look for a more happening place.

Great staff, great environment
After traveling around Europe for 3 weeks and visiting 7 different cities, this hostel tied for first. They had very helpful staff and a good atmosphere. The WiFi worked great (definitely a rarity in hostels) and the accommodations were clean and well maintained. The location was great and made seeing the city a blast.

Hostel very well situated in Paris and with a very nice staff
My time in Paris became a very nice one, also thanks to this hostel with a very helpful and skilled staff. I had a nice and clean room with very spacious lockers in it and from the hostel I could walk right to the Sacre Coeur and the Moulin Rouge and to very nice pubs and cafes. At the reception I could always ask for directions or for advice what places were nice to go, for both eating/drinking or sightseeing. If you want a cosy and nice hostel in a central location, this is definitely the right place to stay.

Very nice and clean hostel
The hostel was easy to find and right near the metro stop. I really liked the people I met there, and the room and bathroom were very clean. The free breakfast was enough to last me for the day.

Your average accommodation
This is a classic hostel. You have dorm bunk beds in crowded tiny rooms. Overall the sheets were clean and the beds were comfortable enough. Bring your own towels and shampoos -- nothing but bare basics is provided. Strangely a lot of older people were staying in the hostel -- not your usual crowd. Downsides -- not enough plugs in the room to charge things, bathrooms need MAJOR updating. Plus sides -- great location near Sacre Cour and metro station, pastries and coffee provided for breakfast.

Excellent amenities
This hostel has anything you need. I received courteous service, but was taken aback when I asked numerous questions about the laundry equipment. I guess I could say they made me feel needy. Probably just a "Paris" thing.

Great location and staff
Has a great location next to Montmartre/sacre coeur and close to gare du nord. They encourage a fun social atmosphere with good common areas, i met people there who have become my closest friends. The staff at the time were very helpful and even hung out with us after their shifts. The room was clean and nice with comfortable beds, although the en suite in the 3 bed dorm is a bit cramped. Very good security. All round great hostel.

Good location -- that's it
This place has an ok price booked online, but the facilities are really quite poor. I stayed in a double room with my girlfriend, and the bedroom was much smaller than displayed in the pictures online. There was one tiny cramped toilet on our floor -- so designed as that you couldn't sit on it properly -- and again, one tiny cramped shower on each floor. The location was pretty good, but really, there's about 50 other hostels in a 100m radius, so yes ... maybe it's just Paris, but the facilities really let this one down. Nice staff though.
