^ I stayed in the Woodstock Hostel on Rue Rodier in the 9th (near Rue Blanche and Place de Clichy etc, easy to find and not on the periphery!) and it was a great hostel. Friendly staff, cheapish, bars nearby, supermarket on the corner, free breakfast and computer use, I think there's a kitchen too, little courtyard....pretty standard stuff. Safe too- was walking around in the wee hours and felt fine.
We want to extend our summer holiday with a few days tagged at the end in Paris. DH and I have DS 8, DD 6 and DS 4 and want to show them the city but not have to pay out on hotel prices.
Anyone know of any hostels suitable for a family? We don't mind if we need to use bunkbeds (part of the fun right?) but want a private room, ensuite facilities and somewhere that is appropriate for small children.
Can anyone direct me to one or a good website to source one? I have google the question but keep getting hotels.
