Worth to stay and really near to Gare du nord station”
Really nice place to stay but the room a bit small if you wish to stay with 2 people. The bathroom also very small but the cleaner will clean your bathroom everyday which make me happy at least they make sure the bathroom clean and comfortable for the customer. The location itself very strategic, takes you about 5 minutes to reach to the hotel from gare du nord station. For muslim traveler you dont have to worry about food. There are a lot of halal restaurant near by. you can have your breakfast before you start your day and also dinner before you end your day. Will choose this place again next time.
safe, clean, great location shared kitchen, staff”
The dorm room had 5beds and lockers (take your own padlock) and a bathroom. A lovely housekeeper came in each day and cleaned them. Make sure that you book ahead the days that you want to stay and don't leave it until the last minute or you may have to find elsewhere. I sense that this is based on the price that you pay somehow (which changes). You could pay between Au $25-50+. Something that isn't related to the hostel: a German backpacking couple (who weren't happy when I arrived to shatter their privacy in the dorm room) decided that they would sleep together on the top bunk.. No too bad until they decided they might like to have sex in it in the morning. I growled at them to get a private room, and they left without saying a word to me (talking to each other about finding their receipt. And didn't come back to the room Overall, the stay at the hostel was great. I was able to cook a meal, have a hot shower (hand-held shower in a bath-tub). Aircon as well as a window and curtains. The place was really clean. The staff are attentive and actually give a damn. When I had to leave because I hadn't booked far enough ahead, (even though it didn't look booked out on the internet) they referred me to their sister hostel (Vintage Hostel, audio a really nice place) a couple hundred meters away (which looked booked out on the internet.. Thank you Julien who arranged a good price there for me for the first night!). At Smart Hostel, The common area is quite small. It's close to Gare du Nord Metro station. Very close to Sacre Coeur and walkable to other major attractions. Plenty of places to eat and supermarkets around. There is a library of books to read. The place is comfortable and well looked after. I know that I already mentioned it, but the staff are truly attentive and will do what they can to help and answer questions (a bonus these days)
Great hostel ever!”
I will absolutely come back if I go to Paris. Very nice staffs. Very near from Gare du Nord. Very safe for female. They have all facilities that I want to. Thanks all for making my trip so remembered in memory!

Clean room and did not have any noise issue at night (or perhaps I was just very tried). Location is great, very close to metro and Paris Gare du Nord, so it's very convenient. Staff were good and helpful, they answered all questions and gave good suggestions. Overall, it was a good place to stay and great value for money.
Great location & price”
Excellent value for money, 2 mins walk from Gare du Nord & 10 mins walk to Montmartre. Lots of bars, cafes, patisseries very close by. Good wifi too. Double room was very small & the property is very noisy but to be expected in a hostel. Ear plugs are a must!

We are glad you had a nice stay and could enjoy our facilities and convenient location. We hope you'll think of us if you ever need a place to stay near the Gare du Nord! Warm regards, The Smart Place Hostel Staff
Place is very close to Gare-du-Nord station which is very convenient to travel. Clean and nice/quite place. Easy access to Asian/Indian restaurants. great value for money. recommend to future bookings.
- the space is very very very narrow. We bring 2 big luggages, then we have to walk carefully because almost no space to walk - the space for showering also very narrow. my hands always knock the glass wall. - no AC or fan, in Agoda app said there is AC in the room. So We have to open all the windows - the lift is very narrow, only for 2 persons. Because we bring 2 big luggages, is only enough for 1 person 1 big luggage - no hairdryer, toothbrush and toothpaste + the location is very close to Paris big station: Gare Du Nord + 24hours front desk + the area around hotel is very nice Overall 3/5
Good location and Friendly Service”
Close to Gare du Nord but away from the hustle near the station area. Rebecca (receptionist) is very friendly, great recommendation on restaurant choices nearby. Just that the 4 beds room for females is a bit small and for the lockers inside the room, bring your own padlock. The shower is great, strong and hot.
The hostel is situated close to the gare du Nord and gare de l'est, which is good for the transport, but at the same Time, its not the safest place to be. Keep in mind that a lot of bus stop are also in a different location because of the Works road. The staff is Nice but not really helpful. The girl at the reception wasnt able to help me with anything, she had just no idea of the neighbourhood. The room ans de bathroom are clean.

A really useful , clean, friendly place to stay.”
This place is well situated near metro stops and places for food. It honestly only takes 20 or so minutes to get into the heart of Paris to do any sight seeing, your also very near some places of interest already. I felt very safe in the hostel, with nice bathrooms and a comfy bed, the communal rooms are great and the staff were wonderfully helpful. If your looking to see Paris on a budget, you cant go wrong here.

Location is great! It’s just a few minutes walk from Paris Nord, which is linked to many places around Paris. When I checked into the hotel on the first day, I was disappointed to know that my room was not prepared. The previous guest’s rubbish was still in the bin, and everything was a mess. I told the receptionist on the ground floor and he helped to call someone to clean the room for 30 minutes. The staff was friendly and apologised for the matter so it was fine for me. Kitchen is small and it would be great if there were more utensils (spoons and forks) to be shared with guests. It was an okay stay.
Close to Paris Nord, nice service!
friendly staff but hot in the summer”
Paris is very hot during the summer but the room has no air-conditioner and even fan, that's make my friends and I a little bit of uncomfortable during the stay. My friend who couldn't stand the heat in the middle of sleep, ended up borrow a table fan from the staff. Overall, the staff was friendly and the place is very clean. Highly recommend this place (except if you're gonna stay in June).
