Savvy travellers — even those who don’t normally consider themselves hostel-staying sort of people — know hostels are often a great option for accommodations, especially in expensive cities like Paris. All that’s needed for a comfortable stay is a little research…and we’ve done quite a bit of that for you.

Below is our list of the best hostels in Paris that are near a Métropolitain (subway) station. To make it to this list, a hostel had to score at least 4/5 in TripAdvisor, 7.8/10 in Booking.com, and be within 0.3 km of the nearest subway station. One other hostel — located 0.4 km away from two subway stations — was added to the end of the list (*) because of its otherwise outstanding features.

The Quick Look table sums up the most important things you need to know about these hostels but if you’re a more visual type of person ( *cough* Instagram *cough* ) the Pick by Pic section should be equally helpful. Finally, Our Choice will get into the details if where we would personally stay and why. Just click on the name/photo of each hostel to be taken to its booking page, where you can find out more about the property — including what previous guests have to say — and enter your travel dates to determine availability.

Our Choice

Given the chance, we would go for The People Hostel – Paris 12. It’s hard to argue with those excellent scores in both Booking.com and TripAdvisor, and its location is super convenient:

  • only 0.2 km to both Dugommier Metro Station and Daumesnil Metro Station;
  • a short distance from the River Seine;
  • close to a couple of supermarkets;
  • a stone’s throw away from Gare de Bercy; and
  • walking distance to Gare de Lyon.

There are a variety of rooms available — both dorm rooms and private rooms — and the price, starting at €21 a night, is pretty good for Paris. They also allow children in their private rooms, something that can’t be said for all hostels (so if you’re travelling with children, make sure to check!).

That said, there’s also a good reason why we included the Adveniat Paris in this list, even though it’s a bit farther away from a Metro station (0.4 km from both Franklin D. Roosevelt Metro Station and Champs Elysées-Clemenceau Metro Station, to be specific, but that’s not too far, and some exits might be nearer). The list of places from which the Adveniat is a 2.5-km walk or less is practically a roll call of some of Paris’ most famous attractions:

  • the Eiffel Tower
  • the Arc de Triomphe
  • the River Seine
  • the Musée d’Orsay
  • the Champs-Élysées
  • the Grand Palais
  • the Petit Palais
  • the Jardin des Tuileries
  • the Louvre

Not bad for a hostel, right? And the property is a credit to itself too: greenery, a lounge with bookshelves full of books, a score of 8.5 and 4.5 at Booking.com and TripAdvisor, respectively. There isn’t much else you could ask for, really.

Whichever you choose, make sure it fits your own personality, comfort level, and travel needs. And smile…you’re in Paris!
