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.

Great hostel! Very comfortable with great atmosphere to meet new people. Staff were exceptional and helped me on a number of occasions. Especially Romeo and Julie, fantastic service. Will recommend :)

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!

Very clean and pretty comfortable. Like the curtain on the bunks. This place has a lot of the accommodations but it's also kind of a big McHostel with loads of manufactured travel related art and a party scene that's like a high school dance. Clean though. Location kinda sucked.

Really clean and safe hostel but a bit far from everything. If you are traveling alone is not the best option, more like a hotel than a hostel. Staff didn't care that much about the guests. Although, the breakfast is amazing!

It was very good hostel. But the only bad thing is that everything has a cost. You book a bed which is 17 € per night and it's gonna be 20€ with tax, locker etc. But even these thigs, it is one of the most beautiful hostels.

Hi, Thanks for your review. Unfortunately Paris charges a tourist tax which is obligatory. Still really glad you had a great stay, Enjoy the rest of your travels!

It was fine if you wanted to party your brains out. We wanted a little more of a restful and social stay but met very few people as it was such a big place. Wasn't that bad but unless you want to party a lot I wouldn't suggest staying here. The staff was very nice when a roommate had a freak out and where helpful when we asked where to go and how to get there.

Really great hostel with fun vibes, and awesome facilities. The bar downstairs is huge with lots of things going on all the time. As I solo traveller I found it very easy to make friends, they have a cool chill out room with pool tables etc and a club in the basement. Main thing is how wonderful the staff are. Super friendly, and security was great to have, as there were a few incidents involving really terrible dorm mates that were dealt with swiftly. I will definitely book here again!
