If you're coming by taxi from the airport, it should cost around €40. If you're arriving by train, take the RER B to Gare du Nord station. Trains run every 6 to 15 minutes and it’ll take about half an hour. A one-way ticket is €9.75.

From Gare du Nord, it's 15 to 20-minute walk to the Paris Generator hostel. Or just hop on The Paris Métro Line 2 at La Chapelle and hop off at Colonel Fabien station.

If you’re using the bus, take the 350 to Gare de Paris-Est. Generator Paris is a 15-minute walk from the station.

Generator Paris

Hip galleries. Boutique shops. Pastoral cafés. Canal St. Martin in the 10th Arrondissement is everything you’d expect from the French capital, but with more than its fair share of contemporary cool.

Generator Paris stands opposite Oscar Niemeyer’s iconic French Communist Headquarters. The hostel is just a few steps from Canal Saint-Martin and Buttes-Chaumont Park and only a 15-minute stroll from Gare du Nord train station. With an intoxicating mix of cinematic design, rich colours, a sparkling reception and the Moroccan chill-out space with artwork by Pieter Ceizer, you’ll feel like you’re on the set of a Parisian art-house movie.

On the hostel’s ground floor you'll find Café Fabien with its canteen and conservatory overlooking the garden. A curved staircase leads down to the vaulted ceilings of Le Club, inspired by the Paris Metro. Head up to the 9th floor to discover Le Rooftop, with its bar and awe-inspiring views of Sacré-Cœur and Montmartre. Our Paris hostel represents the very best of Paris, all under one roof.
