Anyone know any cheap, fairly central youth hostels/hotels in paris?
The cheaper the better.
so don't stay there.
change that to "cheap hotels/b&bs".
The people im going with arnt allowed to stay in hostels because of "rape".
chain of French hotels called 'formule 1' (I think) they're OK. Cheap...kinda like travelodge. I pressume there are a couple in Paris.
they're taking over the world!
stayed at a place called the hotel winsor opera. as far as i remember is was cheap and quite nice and a short walk (through the red light district) to the city centre. there was also a tiny and fun indieish bar very nearby.
the Goofy Lodge.
go to a jazz club on Rue De La Huchette (sp?)
called Caveau De La Huchette (acually that's definately spelt wrong)
but it's full of 60/70 year olds dancing harder than you've ever seen to amazing jazz. seriously worth it.
it's a little french run hotel - they dont' speak english there - but is family run and has a rickety old iron elevator, is in a central location to die for, AND is cheap - about 25 Euros a night for a room.
And take me with you.
