Down with the hotel establishment! It’s all about really, really simple rooms for backpackers at this hostel homage to the ‘60s.
Pros: Funky ‘60s vibe. Complimentary breakfast. Clean rooms and facilities.
Cons: Very basic amenities. Some showers are outdoors.
The 80-bed Woodstock Hostel offers a cheap night's sleep and a young, fun scene. Conveniently located two blocks south of Montmartre and Pigalle, the hostel has been wearing a shabby-chic look since 1995, long before any other hostels in Paris followed suit with similar funky décor.
A twisting, wooden staircase leads to dorm-style rooms equipped with basic furnishings, sinks and mirrors. There are no amenities in these simple rooms. All rooms (including doubles) share showers and toilets. Some of these showers are located in the outdoor courtyard (which could be an issue in cold weather). Rooms, toilets and showers are cleaned and tidied up twice a day.
An homage to Woodstock, Flower Power, Jimi Hendrix and the Beatles, the Woodstock’s lobby is equal parts bar, Internet café and shrine to the “Groovitational” pull of the '60s. All this, with a psychedelic color scheme of green, purple and orange (not to mention Jesus, the hostel’s mascot kitty).
Breakfast is included in the room rate. The hostel also offers free Wi-Fi and a guest kitchen.
Note: The Woodstock accepts cash only and does not have an elevator.

About the Woodstock Hostel neighborhood
The 9th arrondissement has something of a split personality: On the one hand, it’s home to always bustling mega department stores like Galeries Lafayette and Printemps (and one of the city’s two Apple store locations) as well as the ballet and opera lovers landmark that is Opéra Garnier. But it also shares a 9th arrondissement zip code with Pigalle, home to the Moulin Rouge, birthplace of the can-can.
