Lift wasn't working, apparently hasn't been for quite a while. Not in the best location felt quite unsafe at night. Hostel beds good handy having the privacy curtain and own PowerPoint.

The best hostel we've stayed at across Europe abs there's been a few! The only downside is no kitchen to use but the bar offered great meals at reasonable price. Staff were incredibly helpful especially with metro directions! Defiantly stay here again!

10/10. So clean, so well organized, great value for your money. Includes free breakfast in the bar, showers and beds were clean, rooms were big. Very impressed overall. They also give discounts to Paris attractions if you buy tickets in advance. Would definitely recommend. Seems a little far on the map, but it's not - the area is beautiful, and you were going to get on the subway anyway ;)

Good Hostel located not far from the underground. Makes it easy for traveling. Has coin-op laundry(€3/€1.5), computer access and foosball table in chill area. Usually have something going on in the evenings(welcome drinks, beer pong), so it is very easy to meet people as a solo traveler. Also has wifi, but service wasn't the greatest on the 5th floor. Nice curtains for each of the beds(which lead to there usually being someone sleeping at all times, but w/e), and each bed has light/usb/wall plug

The hostels best features is def. The rooms, I have never had such a big room in a hostel before, wich was really nice since i was in a 12 bedrom dormetory. A Nother nice fature were the fact that you can sit by the riverbank and eat you breakfast, drink coffe, wine..(: The only downside, It was qite noicy at night, bec . My dorm Were on first floor, and right above the bars enterance and a busy road - Windows had to be open All the time (or Else the room would get to hot), so not Best sleep.)

The lift the was broken at the time which sucked and I feel like the rooms need some sort of aircon or fan in them as they get way too stuffy even in the cooler months. I also feel it is a little overpriced considering how far out of Paris it is and compared to other hostels.

Great hostel with a bar and lounge on the first floor it was easy to meet people, also the staff was nice and helpful, offered to check trains. Good deal for solo travelers!

Pretty far from everything, but nice if you don't want to be in the centre. The staff care more about their bar then the actual hostel which is annoying. And the bar is really pricey as well. It was clean, but for my money I would try somewhere else next time I'm in Paris

It's quite a pricey hostel, and without a kitchen, it was a bit disappointing, but that's about the only negative. The rooms are fantastic, curtains to give yourself some privacy/space, large lockers under the beds, and charging ports at each bed. Bathrooms were clean and good. It's a fair way out of the city, but Paris is massive, so that's to be expected. Close to metro, and the trains are super easy to navigate. Breakfast was good, and common / chill areas and computers were really handy.

This was an incredible hostel. The rooms are large with lots of space. The bar, restaurant and club are all very enjoyable and provide a great party atmosphere. I met people from all over the world and the mojitos are killer. The staff are astonishingly attentive, they spend a lot of time to really get to know their guests. If you want to have a good time in Paris I would suggest this hostel.

Staff were friendly and helpful. In the bar while ordering lunch, I saw an insect which did look like a small cockroach on a menu on the bar. The member of staff serving me just threw it on the floor behind the bar and looked quite worried. Certainly killed my appetite for the food I'd just paid for!

The hostel was easy to get to from the metro. The dorm had curtains across the bed for privacy and the toilets were clean. The room had a lot of space as well. Wifi worked well through the whole building. Would stay again.

The staff were really friendly and helpful and the common space was great to chill out in. In the future it'd be nice to have more events for solo travelers to meet others at the hostel (maybe a mixer.)

Good Hostel

Location was amazing! Situated right on the canal in a suburban style area between two train line stations,..perfect for travelling in and around the Paris area. Staff were brilliant! Bed was very comfortable, amenities were clean and operated efficiently. Free breakfast was a bonus.

Good hostel but the location is pretty inconvenient. As a solo traveller at night I always got a bit stressed thinking about how I would get home because walking from the central paris (Eiffel tower/Notre dame etc) you have to go through lots of dodgy areas to get home which is a shame. The staff are friendly but aren't very specific when they help you. A bit more detail on how to get to places once off to metro would have been good.

Thanks for your feedback, we are grateful that you took some time to leave us these tips. We understand that being in a new place you may struggle to find different sites, however they are all very well sign posted once you exit the metro stations. As for our location we understand that getting back from the eiffel tower can be tricky as it too is also a little far from the centre. In all everything is very spread out and requires the metro ot taxi unfortunately. St Christopher's Inn Canal
