Paris is one of the most visited destinations on earth and welcomes close to 20 million tourists each year. Boasting some of the world’s most famous attractions, museums, cuisine and shopping, accommodation is often a last concern. Staying in a hostel offers many great benefits that you will not find with a hotel or apartment rental. Here are 5 reasons to stay in a hostel in Paris.
By global standards, Paris isn’t the cheapest of cities, and it’s easy to find yourself spending beyond your budget. However, with a bit of foresight, you can save yourself a significant sum. Hostels offer a an affordable solution to your accommodation. If you’re travelling alone, a bed in a shared dormitory can free up hundreds of euros from your budget to can spend on food and fashion.
Even if you’re not travelling alone, meeting other travellers can be a rewarding experience. Paris attracts people from all corners of the world and hostels are a meeting point for people you’d probably never encounter anywhere else – and never in a hotel. In a hostel you can enrich your cultural experience with conversations you’d likely never have in any other situation. You might also make new friends and find new travelling partners!
Hostel staff will more than likely not be locals, but travellers themselves who have decided to stay in Paris a bit longer. This makes them a useful resource for insight into the city, insight you might not be able to get from your hotel concierge or airbnb host.
Most hostels also have kitchens, which means you can spend your money at the supermarket for the days you don’t want to shell out on a fancy French restaurant. If you’re making multiple stops around Europe, you might find Paris is your mostly costly destination. However, the French capital is famous for its wines, cheeses and breads, all of which can be bought cheaply and enjoyed back at your hostel.
If you’re travelling solo, or in a couple, hostels contain multiple accommodation options, including single and double rooms. Hostels in Paris also offer the possibility of travelling with multiple friends, and staying in a multi-person private room. For groups of four or more, this is a fantastic option to limit your expenditure and still have privacy.
