    As in the description...despite the fact that there's strong AirBnb competition in the local area, Generator was a boring alternative despite branding and marketing. There's a significant lack of atmousphere and rooms are bang-standard for the price.More

    Canal Saint-Martin
    The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point
    of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.
    Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and
    friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the
    bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to
    drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days
    lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and
    concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may

    The beds are bunks. The hostel provides towels! From memory it’s a €5 deposit per towel. Or you can buy them for €8 each.
