Great place! Fun atmosphere

Average hostel, and overall not bad. Staff are awesome, very friendly and helpful, that was definitely the best part! Biggest negative for me was the bathroom by my room...it was very dank/musty and smelled, and the drywall above the shower was either peeling, cracked, or fallen off, leaving exposed pipes to drip cold condensation on you while you showered. Another bathroom down the hall had already fixed this same problem and it wasn't smelly/musty so hopefully they'll fix the other one soon!

The rooms were quite nice. There were individual outlets, reading lights, and privacy curtains for each bed. The bar had a nice ambience as well. I do not believe, however, that my bed was cleaned before i arrive. It appeared to be a one off instance though.

An average hostel. Felt more like a hotel. Breakfast and staff were good. There are security concerns as people can walk into your room from another room on the balcony of the same floor through the window. In my first room a random guy was there according to a fellow roommate. Both myself and the roommate were given a free upgrade. This hostel has a loud night club. If you're into that then this will be fun. I came solo and made friends but this is a place to come in a large group, not solo.

No kitchen and the hostel is so large that nobody mingles. I've stayed at seven hostels in the last month and this has been my least favorite.

Overall, great space and spacious rooms! A bit out of the way but easy to get around via the metro system with the instructions they provide. Very helpful and kind. Great deals on the bar / kitchen if you're a guest. Room had a faucet with potable water which was nice. Great view.

It's a good hostel, the staff was very nice to us! The 12 bed room is big, but the bed wasn't that comfortable and the wi-fi didn't work well there. There's a good bar in the hostel. The hostel doesn't have a kitchen and you have to use a microwave in a room with many people playing and chillin, it's very unconfortable. Five minutes walking from the subway station. The breakfast is very simple, nothing special. The other st christopher's inn that I stayed in London and Amsterdam were better.

It was a nice hostel, we were in a private room and it was clean. The bathroom was a shared one, ans most of the toilets were broken in the ladies' one and there is a constant smell of humidity, but the rest was good: great breakfast choice, amazing common room/bar/resto. Good location!

Needed to watch our gear closely with some random people from outside the hostel roaming about

Beds have a privacy curtain and two outlets which were awesome. Only a 5 minute walk to the metro or food. The nightly social events are neat. Wish the showers were a little larger, it can get pretty cramped.

Our dorm was great and comfortable as the room was quite spacious. Great atmopshere and decent free breakfast where we could overlook the canal. We did however have a bad experience with cleaning staff and the reception has been incredibly difficult to get onto on the phone in regards to lost property.

Great stay at St. Christopher's, loved being by the canal and it was easy to get into the centre whether you wanted to walk, metro, or Velib. Comfortable beds, plugs, wifi that works, hot showers, free breakfast, what more could you want.

Our bus arrived unexpectedly early in Paris and we had been worrying about what to do few hours before our check in time, but the staff had been so helpful to allow us check in early and have the free tasty breakfast. Best part of all, we were so lucky to get upgraded FOC from a 12-bed dorms to 2 beds suite room which we are told they always do that randomly. Definitely recommend it! Can't ask for more!
