What did you think about booking hostels with curfews. I've heard a lot of good things about the 3 Ducks in Paris but I notice there is a 1 am curfew. Does that make it difficult, for a 21 year old who wants to have fun and go out in Paris? Did this bother anyone whos stayed at a hostel with a curfew? If so, is there any hostels you can recommend in Paris without a curfew?

if you decide that your staying at the 3 Ducks you could try going to bed at 3pm, get up 8pm/8.30pm, have somthing to eat get ready be out by 9.30/10pm and stay out clubbing until 8.30 am

This will be my first time going to Europe but i'm looking for hostels with no curfews. I don't want to have to think about that if i'm having a good time!!
sorry if that wasn't any help

Personally, I would go for a hostel with no curfew. Because there are some great bars which are open till 6am near to where the main train station is!!!

OK I'm kinda dealing w/the same problems. I'm staying @ the Young and Happy Hostel in Paris. It has a curfew of 2am but I am going to be in the Latin Quarter so I figured it wouldnt matter as much. Does anyone have any thoughts about it?

What you could also try is just stay at the 3 Ducks for a night or 2 and get all your sightseeing out of the way. Then hunt around for a hostel with no lock out time.

Cause lets face it, when you've partying till 6am the last thing you want to do is drag your ass out of bed and walk around in the hot sun!
