Paris Questions: I want to stay in a hostel when I'm in Paris during the middle of a European backbacking trip next summer to get the full experience, but I want to make sure I'm in a safe area/neighborhood. Any suggestions?

You can even try short stay apartments. They are mostly located in safe areas and you can review neighborhood on the website itself. a few websites that help are: airbnb,, homeaway etc.

Your best bet is to go with popular hostels. You might pay a bit more, but you'll avoid the traps that you can stumble into if you go for cheap and less heard of. Good reputations usually mean safer hostels, and so places like the Hotel Eldorado stand in a league of their own. The Hotel Atelier Montparnasse also has a good reputation, but not as established as the Hotel Eldorado.
