This was a great hostel, we got there way before check in but they allowed us to join in on the free breakfast while we waited for check in. There is no kitchen but the pub has good food and you get 10% off, they also have one of the best free breakfast I've had so far. The beds were great; especially because they had a curtain for privacy and your own light and plug in in your bunk. We also got a free beer while we were having dinner in the pub!

Best hostel I've stayed in by far! They have a rec room/bar on the first floor right when you walk in. So busy and filled with people at night and where we met the majority of the people we went out with. Beds were nice and cozy, had currtains, clean room. All in all, definitely recommend. Not too far from all the sights. You will like this place.

My experience as a first time hostel stayer was great, unfortunately the only thing that I need to comment on is the Women's floor toilet/ showers. There was an odd oder, perhaps cleaning it more then once a day or so would be helpful.

Always look forward to a St Christophers hostel, you know what to expect, and no need to worry. This one didn't disappoint, a great experience, lovely staff, great facilities, love the rooms, bathrooms arnt luxury, but adequate. And for the prices in Paris, this one is pretty reasonable! Thanks for another great stay.

Great environment for young travelers. Good price. Friendly staff. I would definitely stay at another st. Christopher's in another country if it's like this one. Only con would be the wifi. But other than that, amazing experience in Paris.

I travelled by myself to Paris in November and made sure I picked the most sociable hostel. It was really easy to meet people at this hostel and making new friends was definitely a highlight of my trip. The room was well heated (Paris was freezing!) And everything was pretty clean (I made sure I wore flipflops in the bathroom, do not forget them!). The location is ok, metro stops are closeby. The only think I didn't like was paying for lockers and I forgot to bring a padlock.

Well the St Christopher´s are great hostels. Very friendly. The staff is excellent and always helping. The rooms are big and have courtains in the beds, which is really nice. I made a Gig there cause I´m a musician and they gave me free drinks and a meal. It was really nice to stay there. I´ve also made some friends in the room where there was people from all over the world.

Fantastic hostel. I travel alone and have fun with the roommate and make friends at the bar on G/F. It is clean, big enough and good view. Watching football match on the G/F and have a beer is a must. The staffs are very nice, cool and pretty.

Old mate from Canada, goodluck in the French Foreign Allegeince, all the best champion, you deserved it!

Clean and secure, the room was quiet. There was a long queue for reception the whole time.

A bit outside the touristy parts of paris but beautiful and easy to get to. I stayed in 3 hostels on this trip and this was the only one with lockers under the bunks or curtains on each bunk, which I really appreciated.

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed...Very safe,very easy to meet other travellers,easy to reach with metro,the bar,the drinks...I think its perfect for those who want to party..The only two bad things was the location(its a little far from the center,but its ok) and the biggest issue for me was at the doorms the lockers..When you open them they make such a loud noise they are guiete old...The best thing I think is that every bed got its own curtain for privacy!would stay there again:)

some of the staff weren't very helpful, seemed a bit disorganized. Internet wasn't great, you were lucky to get a connection downstairs. But the rooms were great, the included breakfast was good, great atmosphere, everyone was very friendly!

It's a very nice hostel, very clean and the beds are private. Breakfast is really good and the staff was always attentive. It's not central location, but you can get the tube easly, so it's fine.
