Yves Robert hostel will give you a taste of how accommodation can be green and sustainable. Not far from the Gare du Nord and Gare de l'Est, the Youth Hostel is located in the heart of a new eco-friendly district, a model in sustainable development!
Located in an old warehouse of a French railway company, refurbished and transformed into a solar power station (photovoltaic panels on the roof provide the energy needed), the wood-fronted Yves Robert hostel opens onto a unique green area; mixing a covered garden, trees and ponds with aquatic plants. A complete haven from the busyness of Paris! The hostel hosts a theatre, a bar area, a restaurant - overlooking the garden. The complex is designed to foster shared experiences and friendly moments. At the heart of the City of Light, this lively place will seduce you with its modern look, green outlook and its location at the crossroads of Europe.
A few subway stops away are the main places of Parisian life, from Montmartre and the Sacré-Coeur to the Canal Saint-Martin. Discover Paris - from the sky at the top of the Eiffel Tower and the Boulevard Haussmann and its department stores, the Opera Garnier, the Tuileries gardens linking the famous Louvre Pyramid to the Place de la Concorde.
What travellers think
The encampment of refugees outside the hostel is a little disconcerting and intimidating at night although I didn't encounter anyone who had any problem other than persistent begging when you approach the hostel. Whilst the encampment remains I would not recommend a lone female approach the hostel during the hours of darkness. I would suggest you wait for a friend or someone else entering before walking through the encampment.

The staff are so lazy. Needs some customer care training.
