My friend and I are looking for a nice, cheap hostel near the Gare Montparnasse (train st). We found the Three Ducks Hostel, has anyone stayed here and is it nice? The reviews are mixed.
Does anyone know of any other hostels close by and around the same price of (22 Euros). Any input would be great. Thanks

I’ve stayed there and liked it a lot. It certainly isn’t the nicest hostel, kinda run down and not the cleanest. It did have a great social atmosphere and the location was definitely good. Overall I’d recommend it.

I’ve stayed at their “sister hostel” the Aloha (also not too far from Montparnasse), and have visited and hung out at the 3 Ducks. While certainly not “top notch” like the MIJE hostels, it certainly is pretty decent, and the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff surpass the MIJE.
