I arrived late at night, needing a place I could relax, as my journey had been very demanding. Originally from Urumqi, in Xinjiang Province, China, I had a 6 hour wait at Istanbul airport before catching a flight to Paris. On arrival at Charles De Gaul airport, I had a change of plan. Instead of booking at 11 am as indicated in my original request, I travelled by train to Lyon immediately on arrival, as I needed to catch my bank open. I took a return train the same evening. No problem with the r
I booked this hostel three weeks before I planned on getting there. It was my final night before heading home. I had gotten to the hostel in late afternoon. Upon my arrival, I was told that they had a problem with the booking, so I had to be moved to a different hostel. I had a friend staying at this hostel on the same night, which was the main reason why I had booked it. I really wasn't impressed with how they handled it. They can take a reservation, they just don't know how to keep it.
The hostel is a great place to stay overall. The staff is wonderful and I had a great time. Breakfast is a little primitive but it's free.
Had all the facilities that we were looking for including laundry and a kitchen. The guests at the hostel were all friendly and it was very easy to meet people. The staff were welcoming and informative about the places we wanted to see.
Had a great stay at Le Regent! Everyone was welcoming and kind. Great location, super close to two metro lines and steps away from lots of restaurants and things to do. Bed was comfy linens were fine, bathroom was fine. My only qualm is the lack of power outlets in the room, not a super big deal though.
Fantastic staff, very helpful. Easy location to get to, activities to socialise with other guests were thoughtful and well done. Happy hour was great for travellers watching their wallet. Breakfast was busy but well organised. All round it was a lovel stay.
They had no record of my reservation upon arrival. Had to pay more than promised on hostelworld.com. was charged three times for services not rendered (i.e. triple charged for the same night, a night I did not stay at the hostel). I had to change rooms and make three separate reservations after arrival because there seems to be no communication between employees. the manager was extremely rude. the breakfast was very scant. There is no quiet time. Strongly recommend St. Christophers.
I loved the atmosphere and bright colors in the hostel, but it was dirty and run down. The room was fairly nice, but the shower area was very dirty, to the point that I wouldn't even step foot in it. The luggage closet wasn't very secure, as the staff just handed the key to anyone who asked and it wasn't supervised at all.
This place resembled a seedy hotel. My room looked run down. (Not necessarily visibly dirty - it just looked used. For example the rug was severely stained. And the whole decor looked nothing like the photo pictured.) There are no lockers in the room. There was also very little atmosphere. I think that during my month of hostel stays through Europe that this was the worst. By far. The staff seemed nice. But that was barely a redeeming factor. I would not stay here again.
Rooms were good especially liked having the big French doors opening to the street and table and chairs. Fairly standard facilities - just don't expect anything new and fancy. No complaints really. If there was one disappointment it was the bar - they kinda make it seem like a backpackers bar but when it went it was literally all locals and the event was a comedy night - all spoken in French! How is that aimed at international travelers? Haha minor inconvenience.
Great location and very helpful staff. I'm not used to the sliding scale of rates for hostels so I found that hard, unfortunately that is the way of the world in Europe.
the carpets in hall need to be removed....they are filthy...staff were very helpful

Very clase from the metro station and good places to eat. The atmosphere is very nice, the staff is helpful And the breakfast is pretty enjoyable. I would definetely return!
This was my first ever hostel experience and it was amazing! Great atmosphere, rooms are a little tight but it worked. There are lockers in the rooms. The bathroom was very spacious I also had an incredible view of the Sacrée-Coeur. The breakfast was pretty basic, but free and good! The location is great, metro station steps away! The staff was super friendly. I'd recommend this spot to anyone going to Paris.
About as perfect as a hostel can be for this price. I've stayed in many other Paris hostels and this was better than some that were more expensive. Here there's more space available per person, in the dorms and the common areas, even during breakfast. The bathroom in my 6-bed dorm even included a bathtub (!). And lockers are large. The staff are consistently friendly day after day -- they're clearly trying their best. Unless they raise rates significantly, this is my new favorite in Paris.
Breakfast was lacking and so was the comfort of the beds. You get what you pay for.

Good for a one night stay! Really great location right across from metro station and super easy to find. Staff more than happy to help with airport shuttles and recommendations of places to go.
The hostel was great. It was my first hostel experience and was exactly what I expected. The place was clean and served a good breakfast. It's right next to a metro stop that takes you directly to all major tourist locations. The staff is friendly and ready to answer any questions you may have. I would recommend this hostel to anyone and will return if I go back to Paris in the future!
If you get out of the train at Gare du Nord station, you have to go through a sketchy part of town until you reach the hostel. I felt a bit unsafe, so I would recommend taking the metro to a station closer to it. However, once you get closer, it is a nice area for tourists,near the Moulin Rouge and Sacre Coeur and Anvers metro station is pretty much outside the door. The hostel itself is nice, great staff, lockers, a bathroom inside the room, decent breakfast and nice common areas.
Clean rooms, Nice staff, secure and well localed. I am very satisfied about my stay. Tanks for all !
