100% eco-sustainable hostel opening in the heart of Paris

As you probably know, Paris lacks affordable guest accommodation and finding a family friendly place to stay on budget (especially for those feeling the pinch) can be a very difficult task. However, this is no longer true.

In May 2013, we have opened our brand new Paris Pajol Hostel, situated conveniently within a five minute walking distance of the Gare du Nord and providing affordable accommodation all year round. The hostel is located in the heart of a new eco-friendly district and aims to be a role model in sustainable development. Situated in a refurbished warehouse, previously used by the French Railway company, the hostel is able to generate its own power (with photovoltaic panels on the roof provide the energy needed) and includes an autonomous unique green area (see images above), mixing a covered garden, tree lines and ponds with aquatic plants – a haven in the turmoil and bustle of busy Paris! The hostel has its own restaurant and bar, as well as self-catering facilities.

Prices start from £46 per night, for a double room including breakfast.
