20, Rue d’Orsel , 75018 Paris
Philippe, founder of the Village Hostel Montmartre has created quite a gem of this old Parisian building by inviting the spirit of the neighborhood into the very corridors of the hostel. The hostel is tastefully decorated, with exposed rafters and wooden flooring which make one feel quite comfortable. It is ideal if you are looking for a cozy and warm, cheery atmosphere. You will adore sharing a meal in the modern fully equipped kitchen on gingham-covered tables which give the place an air of one of the riverside cafes French impressionists were so fond of painting! In the common room you can play a few notes on the hostel’s guitars, exchange experiences, or send your emails from the computers available for our guests.
Whether you are visiting Paris as a couple, with friends or family, the Village’s dormitories and rooms are modern and spacious. If you are visiting Paris alone, there is a good chance that you will meet up with traveling companions while you’re here!
In the morning have a leisurely breakfast in the lobby or on the sunny and lush, green terrace where the view of Sacré-Coeur is breathtaking. Don’t be surprised at the Village if the staff receives you with a paintbrush in one hand, a baguette in the other, a beret on the head ready at any moment to burst into a rendition of Piaf, Montand, or Aznavour.
Discover the Montmartre of yesteryear where bohemian artists and merchants used to tell tales of the neighborhood over cups of coffee as they would greet those who had come from the countryside to buy fabric at Marché St Pierre. Have your portrait done at place du Tertre and drink a latté in the bistro facing the butte Montmartre. In the evening, if you are in a festive mood, let the street artists guide you and come meet up with the globetrotters and share a fresh beer at “On the Road “the hostel’s pub. However, beware, you might never want to leave the Village.
