Very nice hostel, really in the heart of Paris! I never expected such a nice place for such a small price! Nice room and fantastic staff! They even have a little kitchen if someone wants to cook or store something in the fridge. I recommend to everyone!

I stayed one night in Smart Place and I would definitely return. It is situated very close to Gard du Nord which means all Paris has to offer is only a metro journey away. I shared with three girls and had a wonderful time. I would really recommend this place.

Nice Hotel/Hostel in the Heart of Montmarte, close to both Gare de L'Est and Gare du Nord (which you both reach by foot). Nice clean rooms with TV, daily room cleaning. Our matress was a little too used, but still okay. No breakfast but the most beautifully (and cheap) cafes nearby.
