We stayed at Smart Place for three nights (from Sunday, April 6th 2014) and the Smart Place ambient is excellent. The location is great, only 5 minutes walk to Paris Nord Train Station (Gare du Nord). Recomendable 100% for youngers couples that search a comfortable Hostel (good relation quality/price). PS. A detail, Wifi is not for free (€5 for 24...

Thank you for taking time sharing your impressions about Smartplace Paris. We are glad you enjoyed the atmosphere, the metro connections at Gare du Nord and the Montmartre District up the street. Regarding Wifi, the access is free and available in every room but the cost you mentionned is for the computers' usage. We are glad you enjoyed the stay...

I stayed in this Hostel for 4 nights well I was in Paris. The location is brilliant, as it is just a 5 minute walk from the main Paris train station Gare Du Nord, and from there you can get to any other station in the city quite easily. Hostel had a good atmosphere with people playing guitar sometimes at...

Really good ambient, clean rooms and everything but, one night we had a really bad experience with the reception of 18/02 at 01:30 he was really hateful and didn't cooperate with us with a simple demand of music, reAlly bad of you think about it.

We stayed here during christmas and new years, for 9 nights, in a private room on the 5th floor. The hostel is very close to Garde du Nord station (exit through the "rue de dunkerque" exit or you might get lost), so it's easy to move around. The room was cleaned every day if we were out around 11am and...

The stay was great from arrival until check out: welcoming, great choice of music, very helpful (multilingual staff), nice rooms/facilities and a wonderful kitchen/dining area. Above all, best location in town to explore Montmartre, walk down to the Seine and catch the international trains at Gare du Nord

I stayed here for 17 nights. I had read that it was a very good hostel but the surrounding area was lacking and dodgy. I found the hostel to be the best I have stayed in during six months of hostels. Highlights included the staff, the room being more like a hotel room, and the lift, albeit very small. My...

Thank you so much for your glowing review. We really try to make everyone feel at home when they check in to the Smartplace. We'll take your suggestion about breakfast into account. We offer tea and coffee but so many of our guests like to discover typically parisian boulangeries around the hostel for delicious french pastries. Thanks again for sharing...

Great little place in a fantastic location really close to Gare du Nord. Staff was really helpful (specially the brazilian guy who checked me in super early).
