No kitchen... which is a major bummer for backpackers trying to stay on a budget.

Awesome staff, loved that the beds had privacy curtains and lockers underneath. Hot showers and free breakfast. Only complaint was location being a tad far from everything to the west.

Hi, Thanks for your nice comments about the hostel and the staff! We are a bit up north but we can enjoy the peacefulness of the Canal which is also very appreciable along with the multiple choice of activities in the neighbourhood. Warm regards St Chris team

Stayed in a mixed dorm this time in the 4th floor were the wifi connection was bad. It wasn´t as clean as the last time I stayed there. But free breakfast was good! Staff even recognised me after 3 weeks. Unfortunately they charge you for everything: 10€ towel (4 depost + 6 charge), using the wifi on their computers 3,50€ for 30min, store your lugage 2€ for 3 hours but in general it was a basic hostel. Not perfect but okay. They don´t have a kitchen! So no watercooler, fridge. only a microwave

standard st christopher's fare. good points - staff were really nice. cheap and quick laundry. bad points - location is pretty ordinary, there are two metros close by but at least half an hour to anywhere of interest. wifi is woeful...any floor, even sometimes poor in the bar area.

Nice hostel, clean rooms, good beds, the bar is a lot of fun with good deals. The wifi is SO bad though. It fails all the time and does not reach the rooms.

This isn't the first time I've stayed in this hostel which says something. That being said, I feel like it's lost a bit of it's touch - the room I was in wasn't too clean and smelled of beer... I'll probably try another hostel the next time I'm in town.

St Christopher's is one of the best hostels to book with. Unfortunately this hostel didn't really have a 'kitchen' (just a microwave). The bar was pretty cheap and the people were friendly, including the staff who seemed lovely. It is easily one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at except it's a little out of the way (not really a problem with the metro) and there aren't any cooking facilities (can be a problem for backpackers).

Hi, Thank you so much for the great comments about the hostel and the staff. Cooking facilities are very difficult to handle in terms of hygiene especially having a restaurant in the venue but we will consider every comment. See you soon in St Christopher's Kind regards from St Chris Canal!

Not a bad place. The first time was better. We had a moody person in our dorm. Maybe their Garde du Nourd location is better.

Stayed on a Friday night. We walked in and were greeted with live music and friendly staff. Definitely a very social atmosphere which was perfect and exactly what we wanted after a day of touring. They encourage you to meet new people. The pod beds were great in a mixed dorm. The curtain allowed for some privacy in an otherwise public dorm room. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay and relax book a smaller room on an upper level.

Breakfast time till 10am strictly is not pleasant. If it was up to 10.30 or 11am it would be much better.

Owner Comment (Hide)

Very nice hostel. It is a little bit far from the city centre, but that is no problem because there are 2 metro stations nearby. The breakfast is incredible, I ate like a king. The hostel also is a very nice bar were you can hangout if you want to. I totally recommend St. Christopher's Inn Canal!

Great location and accomidations! Pod beds are also excellent! The WiFi range could be improved, as well as perhaps a more organized refrigerator system, but all-in-all, a great hostel!

Hostel is in a beautiful location, great atmosphere, really glad they had curtains on the bed and bathrooms are decent too (at least really good compared to another hostel I stayed in). Only negative is it felt really far away from the city center. We bought a 3 day Metro pass and had to ride in about 30+ mins each day. Staff is super nice.

The location isn't ideal. There's a metro stop nearby but you're really far from everything. The bar is ok. Every night it was packed, but the prices are ridiculous. They have "deals" - 2 for 1 alc & mixer, but 1 is 7 euros to begin with. Beds were pretty comfy & the bathrooms seemed clean. The wifi was pretty crappy in rooms. Luggage storage is a pain cause you have to pull the entire thing out to open the lid. Sucked cause when my storage was out I blocked the entire pathway to leave the room

Thanks a lot for taking time to give us your useful feedback I was really sorry to read your stay with us was not what you expected Our cleaning staff try their best to keep the bathrooms clean, minimum of three full cleans per day and regular cleaning between 7am and 11pm. I am suprised about the bed cause all our bunks have ladders...Did you inform reception staff? We are curious to know the website you booked on? Thanks again for your time and I am looking forward to hearing from you!
