Paris, a city which can be overwhelming. But there’s so much history in this city, so much beauty, so much love that you once look past the cliches, you find Paris is one of the few cities in the world that truly lives up to its hype.
Typical Costs in Paris
Hostels in Paris aren’t cheap. The hostels that are closer to Paris’ main attractions are more expensive – around 30 EUR per night for a 6-bed dorm. You can find better-priced hostels in neighborhoods like Montmartre or the Latin Quarter (like 6-bed dorms starting at 20 EUR and 10-bed dorms at 17 EUR per night). During the summer high season and on weekends, prices tilt towards the higher end. Private double rooms begin at 80 EUR per night.
Lots of hostels provide free linens and many offer free breakfast (which in Paris typically consists of pastries, croissants, and other baked bread with spreads like Nutella and jam to be washed down with strong coffee). There aren’t many good hostels in the city, but my suggested places are:
Budget hotel prices
You can find two-star budget hotels starting at 50 EUR per night that are within a mile or two of the city center. These hotels have free WiFi. Rooms with more amenities like air-conditioning and free breakfast start at 60 EUR. On Airbnb, you can find shared rooms in apartments for an average of 23 EUR per night, while some are as low as 17 EUR. You can find entire apartments/homes for an average of 54 EUR per night, while some are as low as 23 EUR.
