No soap in toilets. Good breakfast and located right by the train station. Beds are very good as well
Best location- 2mins walk 2 d main railway/bus/metro terminus but thr r lot of oder accomodations too.U pay for towels.Same sad breakfast everyday & closes b410am &normally d plates/crockery isnt available coz its gettin "washed". Lively atmosphere,brilliant bar staff, slow wifi.Dirty rooms-my wash basin was clogged &even aftr complaining not resolved. Reception Staff shud be polite &respectful,thrs a piano but untuned.In short shoddy management.Locker cages under bed,pretty nasty&get padlocks.
The bar downstairs was very nice and convenient, but the prices were kind of expensive. The free breakfast was good, typical of what you expect for a hostel breakfast. Spacious lockers underneath of the beds, plus outlets and lights above each bed with a curtain around it for sleeping. Good wifi strength all around hostel. Staff was friendly and outgoing.
A comfortably stay. The only fact that I did not like was that my room was supposed to be with bathroom and there was not any. The bathroom was general to share with all the floor. That should be specified. Besides, the bar is nice, but in my opinion would be better if it was only for the hostel and not for the general public. I wanted to take some beers and meet fellow travellers but I found more people from the city with no wishes to talk. Other than that the hostel is very worth it.
This hostel is really nice to stay, very good atmosphere at there Love it!!
I urgently needed a bed for one night when my couchsurfing host bailed on me, so I jumped in here. The staff were really lovely, the room was wide, the bed comfortable, everything was clean. And since it's apparently impossible to get a bed anywhere in Europe under 20eur/ night, there you have it. The area, around Gare du Nord is dodgy, as with all the train stations in the world, there's always a certain type of crowd that lingers around. I didn't feel unsafe, but just be vigilant.
It was very good, it's a good choice guys!

The location is really great, very close to Gare du Nord (north train station) and easy to find. The room is very good, I stayed in a 8-bed female room and they provide each a steel container. The bed was comfortable with power station and reading light, and also a curtain to create a private room for everyone, which is really a highlight. Bathroom is too small so it is kinda hard to find place to put clothes and there are too many peope so they dont have nice enough food for everybody.
It's situated near the railway station (different lines of metro and RER), not far from Montmartre. The breakfast is ok. The coolest thing here that your bed has a curtain, above your head there is a normal plug and USB-plugs! Wi-fi was so fast but enough to check the e-mail and facebook. I was in a roome for 8, the shower and WC was on the floor but in the room there is a sink.
GREAT location! Good social atmosphere in the common room / bar down stairs, great way to meet other travellers, whether it's over a beer of coffee. This place is so well organised, they've thought of everything. The beds are comfy and private, Bfast was nice & simple... fresh bread, cheese, ham, butter a variety of spreads, cereals and hot drinks on tap. Staff were great, when we complained there was no HOT WATER, we got a sincere apology a free storage locker. WOULD STAY AGAIN.
Very expensive Hostel. You only get your free shot if you buy another drink. You have to pay for the locker. I didn't like at all.
This was my first hostel and it was a great one. Very comfortable, no real problems to report of. The staff was really friendly and helpful, Aqid especially. He helped me find a banana when I was desperately hungry for one after midnight. It was a great banana! I would gladly return to this hostel in Paris.

Location next to Gare du Nord with good access to Metro and RER. The room 603 (4 Bed Mixed Dorm Ensuite) is on the top floor with open air entrance. It was pretty cold in the room during the night. No hot water in the shower in the evening. Belushi's bar has a great atmosphere with discounts for hostel guests (e.g. 2 for 1 beer costs 7 EUR). Free breakfast was simple but enough for start your day (although no fruits/vegetable). I'd stay here again cause it's a good value for 30 EUR/bed.
This is a hotel well worth living. It would be better if there is a lock casebox. I want to choose this hotel if I pay a visit to Paris next time.
Cleaning in room, shower, bathroom, breakfast area ( İt is a Bar ) are terrible.
The location near to gare du nord station was really handy and all the infrastructure was new and modern. The breakfast was really good and all you can eat. Some people of the staff were nice and worry to help and other people I just felt they didn't really care about helping. The rooms were always clean, but the toilets bins were always full, nothing that bothers that much. The price worths it.
I felt very safe at this hostel, a bunch of lovely staff that made me feel very welcome. I would definately stay here again and looking forward to visiting St. Christophers in other city's.

The facilities were very clean, very secured and very good looking. All the staff were polite to me (some of them were very friendly). The breakfast was good. The room was really good (the beds have individual plugs and lamps), spite of the fact that the shower curtain didn't cover all the shower. The atmosphere at the hostel isn't that good for you to blend in with another guests, except if they were at the same room as yours. In general, I've liked staying there anyway. Probably would go back!
Best Hostel I've ever stayed at by far! The atmosphere is outstanding and everything is so close. Definitely a party hostel and great bar and club downstairs with 25%off food!
The hostel is very clean. (I stayed in a single, which had a tiny but spotless bathroom.) Bed and included charging station was great. Bar/restaurant is good, too, and the staff were helpful. Wish the room had a locker. The area around Gare du Nord is not dangerous, but if you're looking for charm look elsewhere. (If you want great Mediterranean takeout, you're in the right neighborhood!) Not the fault of the staff, but I'd rather stay next to a smaller metro station.
