Overall the experience was pretty seasons as this is my first hostel stay ever. However it was very hot in the room as it's summer and there are no fans in the room. Except that it's the best location, good facilities and security,enough space for luggage and you, good food(but I'm not much satisfied as there isn't anything for me to eat as I'm a vegetarian and i can only find bread,Jan and something like that on addition to cerealjuices) however you have many Indian restaurants available nearb

Hey, we do have a few rooms that have an A/C unit but not all, we will have to double check the website to remove such information, we are sorry if you were mislead. The temperature in Paris is really warm right now and we hope you understand we are doing all we can to help reduce the temperatures in our hostel. The fans available at reception are useful too, so please rent one if you need one. St Christopher's Inn GDN

Great hostel, very clean with great security - key cards and huge lockers under the beds- and each bed has its own curtain. Breakfast was ample and the hostel is so close to Gare du Nord. The only let down was the air conditioning in most peoples' rooms was broken so it was sweltering at night.

Very bad location in a bad neighborhood-I was afraid to walk around at night. Also was very expensive for such a poor location. Breakfast was good, though, and the beds with a charging station and curtains were nice

Hey, thanks for your feedback. It's a shame to see you found our location a poor one. There are very few places in Paris with better connections to the rest of the city than here between Gare du Nord and Gare de l'est. We understand that you may have worries but our area is overall a safe place with no reports of issues from our clients. Despite this it's great that you enjoyed our hostel facilities overall and our great free breakfast. Thanks, St Christopher's Inn

Gard de nord is not the nicest suburb but the hostel is very close to the main train system so you can hop the tube to anywhere easily, including airports and the Eurostar. The hostel was lovely, clean and fresh. Great security and comfortable. Breakfast was a bit messy and underwhelming but otherwise good.

IT's great to read that you found the area a very convenient one in terms of access to the rest of the city and Europe too. It's ideal! We are also happy to see that you appreciated our security, cleanliness and breakfast, we will be careful with our presentation though thats for sure. St Christopher's Inn GDN

The hostel is awesome, the area it is located could have been better. It feels a little unsafe in the night, not that I encountered any issue, just a general observation

The room (4-female bedroom) was really small, but clean and had a bathroom. Would definitely stay again.

St Christopher's was my first time experiencing a hostel as a lone traveller! It has a great environment to meet new people, as they offer walking tours and tours to popular monuments across Paris! The area itself is accessible to public transport (Gare du Nord station), however I felt quite un safe. The area is not the nicest place to experience Paris and altered my thoughts on Paris! Staff are very friendly also and the bar is great.

Thanks for taking sometime to leave your feedback, we are pleased that overall you enjoyed your first hostel experience and despite some concerns about our location you loved so many other aspects. The Belushi's bar connected is a great place to meet fellow travellers and we hope to see you back again soon. St Christopher's Inn GDN

St. Christopher's Hostel is comfortable and convenient. All of the beds have built in electrical outlets, lights, & privacy curtains. The staff provides prompt service and is always available if you need any recommendations. The location of the hostel has many metro line connections, but the area surrounding the hostel isn't ideal so I would suggest taking the metro to another area for dining and entertainment. Alexander at reception is super friendly and can give you helpful travel tips!

They charge you for all the standard things, like left luggage. I haven't been anywhere else that does that. And they're a bit cold.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for your feedback, we do have some charges for things like left luggage as it is the only way we can guarantee the safety of your belongings when you are away from the hostel. We do however provide free breakfast, towels and wi-fi unlike many other hostels you may visit. We regret to see that you weren't able to see our great value elsewhere. We hope you will return to us in the future to have a great stay. St Christopher's Inn GDN

Great staff, location, breakfast! If I visit paris again - thats were I stay. A bit pricey when I booked in last minute but thats how it is in big cities.

The staff were all great, the bar is really cool, good food with the discount it's well worth it,breakfast is free if you are up before 10.I met loads of nice people whilst there, definitely good for solo travelers.Only major downside is the location. For me I felt on edge walking around there(not just at night)Glad I met people there or I probably would have hardly left the place as it was so sketchy.It might just be me not being used to big cities, wouldn't wanna put any1 off,just be prepared!

Thanks for your very kind mention of our staff, they are very good and we appreciate the hard work they put in to offer our guests a great time. It's a big shame that you didn't enjoy the location, we understand your concerns yet must emphasise the fact that we do have great security plus the convenience of being next to Gare du Nord and Gare de l'est really outweighs the con.

Churchillian hard work and preparation have obviously been put into this very British offering - with 586 well fashioned beds, and such conveniences as Eurostar disembarking literally across Blvd La Fayette. So much is so generously offered to everybody at breakfast that the accountants must be furious !

We really appreciate your feedback, it's great to see that you enjoyed our British offerings. We are very proud to be able to offer you such a great place to stay and we hope you will return soon! St Christopher's Inn GDN

Even though this hostel is not located in the best area of Paris, it is only a two minute walk from the station so that I felt safe nonetheless. I really liked the friendly staff and the good atmosphere at the hostel. What's more, I appreciated having some privacy despite staying in a 8-people dorm room, thanks to the curtains at each bed. The big locker room to store my luggage in before checkin was very helpful as well.
