The Location

Belleville
What's Nearby?
The Belleville neighborhood is a mix of residential and commercial streets. Within a short walk from the hostel you can find plenty of local restaurants, shops, galleries, bars, and more. Chinatown is also not far away, and the Gare du Nord is also a long walk. A large park is also only one block away, and this makes for a nice area for a picnic.
Nearby Transportation
As this neighborhood is located in the northern area of central Paris, it is not walkable to the main attractions and sights within the city. However, several metro stations are nearby, the best of which is Belleville on lines 2 and 11. Several bus lines also traverse the main streets nearby.

Most nights this hostel has organized activities. As mentioned earlier, the bar has happy hours in the evenings, which tends to draw a crowd. Also, pizza nights are held fairly often. The breakfast that is served in the mornings is also a great way to meet up with other travelers before spending a day out in Paris.
