Not the cheapest but had a cracking time here. Have a night club and bar attached so it's easy to meet other groups here, would definitely reccomend to others.

I was eaten by mosquitos all night and couldn't sleep. I had to wait 15min to check in because the staff were just laughing with each other and didn't notice me. Checking out was the same. There are loads of people walking around not paying attention the the huge queue of people wanting to escape this place.

Hello, Thank you so much for your feedback regarding your stay. We're sorry you felt that our staff weren't attentive enough, we absolutely pride ourselves on our customer service and will be sure to pass this feedback along. In regards to the mosquitoes, it can be an issue during summer seeing as we are located right on the Canal, and we hope you managed to find some mosquito repellent to help you out!

Hi there, We're glad you loved our hostel! Whilst we can definitely vouch for the area's safety and rarely hear of any trouble , in any big city it's always best to take care after dark if you're out on your own! Safety is always a priority for our guests, and we hope our service and facilities reflected this. The Team at St Christopher's, Paris Canal.

It should have at least a small kitchen (just to have some knifes, forks, ...) or a fridge in the dorm room (12people).

Bedrooms were so hot and so many mosquitoes. So far away from anything but everything else was great

Thank yo so much for the feedback. We're definitely aware that during the super hot weather mosquitoes tend to lurk around seeing as we're situated right on the water. Whilst there's not too much we can do about it, we could perhaps look at offering mosquito repellent at reception or something similar. We're thrilled you had a great time with us none the less and we hope to see you again in the future! The Team at St Christopher's, Paris Canal.

Stay at St. Chistopher's Gare du Nord instead, it's so much nicer and cleaner. St. Christopher's Canal Street was gross: very unclean toilets, showers, stained sheets, dirty tables at the restaurant. ZERO wifi anywhere, ever. Unless you're here traveling with your frat buddies, really miss playing beer pong at home and are under age 24, don't even bother.

Atmosphere is good, lively bar area with seating over looking the canal. A bit out from the main sites but only 5min walk to metro station. Very expensive hostel, although everything in Paris seems to be expensive.

The beds are comfortable and the wifi good. Although there is loud music in the bar until late, I didn't hear it when in my dorm on the first floor. The hostel is a little far from the city centre and many of the big attractions, the metro is close by and easy to use. The bathrooms were kept clean. Expect to wait a while at check-in/out as there are always lots of people coming /going and only one or two people on reception. expect to pay to store luggage before check-in or when changing rooms.

St Christophers was a bit out of the way from the main city, but the canal was nice and there were nice restaurants around. The hostel had a great atmosphere and it was really easy to meet people and hang out. The showers were a bit mouldy but the rooms were good and it was nice to have a curtain, light and powerpoint in each bunk. A bit expensive but I guess that's Paris!

A bit far away from downtown Paris but close to metro. Check-in process takes way too long. Spacious dorms and clean facilities.

I loved this hostel, it was fantastic on it's own, but the staff were absolutely amazing. They helped so much in a situation where a friend had their stuff stolen, which meant we were able to get there stuff back. Thanks again, would love to return one day! (:

Not central but easy to get around with Metro stations 5 minutes away, and a Velib dock (the city's bike hire scheme) just outside. The hostel was relatively clean although the male bathrooms on our floor were all out of order for the whole 3 days we were staying there, and there was some suspicious mould growing around the metal of our bunk bed. The bar and restaurant were lively and relatively good value for money.

I stayed here because of recommendations from many friends who stayed at St. Christopher's as well. One pf the best hostels I've stayed at, atmosphere wise. The bar was such a great place to meet so many other backpackers. The beds are comfy with privacy curtains, and the lockers are the biggest I've ever seen at a hostel! The staff is so friendly and they have so many helpful flyers and sheets at the front desk including a helpful metro guide. Love this place and wish I could go back!

For Paris it's fine. Location is near two subway stops which is convenient since its far out from the city centre (but you're not going to find better prices closer).it's a party hostel so be aware. Lot of up late at night roommates if that's your thing. WiFi was perfect in rooms. Privacy curtains were nice. Each bed has AC outlets (not sure why others have been saying USB plugs...). Nice big lockers under the beds - bring a lock. No complaints about free breakfast - decent spread for the price!

Really nice place, slightly far from the centre, not too bad though. Terrible wifi though, didn't work for me at all

I was checked in and given a keycard to our private room, however I found it already occupied. Sorted by reception. The room's door would not lock from the inside, one night we had a man come into our room at midnight. Our balcony door also would not lock - a huge safety issue as the balcony could easily be climbed from the outside. Only 1 locking female shower for whole corridor, and 2 (UNISEX) toilets for 20+ rooms. Taps leaking loudly all night. Bed bugs. Wifi was useless. I could go on..

Great hostel but no fans or air in rooms would make me reconsider staying here again!
