The hostel, run by the Religious of Mary Immaculate, is a place of welcome and sharing, where girls, students or young professionals from 18 to 24 years old, can find a warm family atmosphere in a Christian environment and an atmosphere that is both friendly and conducive to study.
More than just accommodation, they offer a simple way of life, where the organisation (which focuses on active participation and awareness of the common good) allows for collective responsibility, friendship and collaboration, through the activities offered and the involvement of each person in daily life.

In the hostel, you never feel lonely thanks to the sisters and the other girls. Here I have been able to meet people from different parts of the world and I have had the chance to make some very good friends. The activities that are organised allow us to share fun moments with the girls and the sisters.
While I was away from my parents, the hostel became like a second family for me.
I think it’s the ideal accommodation for a student: in addition to the security, it’s a real asset to be able to discover so many different cultures and personalities!
The hostel taught me to live as part of a “community” with girls from several countries.
It allowed me to enrich myself by discovering other cultures and, above all, life in the hostel reinforced in me the values of friendship and altruism.
Initially, when I needed it the most, it was a refuge that welcomed me, then it became a second home and finally, a launching pad when I was ready to spread my wings.
My stay in Paris was an extraordinary experience for me!
This was especially thanks to the hospitality of the Religious of Mary Immaculate who welcomed me into their home.
What I appreciated most was that I really made me feel at home from the very first moment.
I found in this house a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and so many people available, with great girls, several of whom became real friends and with whom I shared unforgettable moments.
It is really a type of accommodation that I would recommend in particular to those who enjoy living in a multicultural environment: the hostel, indeed, welcomes girls from all over the world.
It is a lively place where sharing and laughter are perfectly balanced with quiet moments and respect for more personal spaces.
The hostel is very well organised: there are several common rooms, a fully equipped kitchen, the laundry room, the refectory and everything you need to have a perfect stay just a stone’s throw from the Eiffel Tower!
But what will remain engraved in my heart are the people who take care of it and make it live: they are the ones who, with their smile and their joy of living, make this home special!
When I arrived in Paris for my studies, I felt quite lonely, as I was far from my family and I didn’t know anyone in this city.
Fortunately, the Hostel and its community welcomed me with open arms and I immediately felt guided in my new life in Paris.
Thanks to the Hostel, which is now like my second home, I have met great people from all walks of life, with whom I have had the joy of travelling a long way, sharing unforgettable moments of my life.
The Sisters, who are very endearing, were always ready to listen.
This experience, excellent for me from a personal point of view, really helped me take off and find fulfilment and serenity!

Help at home
Through this place of listening, we bring together two needs that answer to each other: that of people (especially young women) who are looking for a dignified job as “family collaborators”, and that of families who need help at home, for cleaning, cooking, looking after the elderly or children (baby-sitting), etc…
We thus help:
– families looking for:
- Domestic help, internal, external / part-time (cleaning, etc.)
- Home help for the elderly
- Baby-sitting / help for children (au pair, baby-sitter…)
- Attending medical appointments
– and young women looking for work in domestic services and home help.
