it was a great hostel. My friend and I booked an all female dorm but on the last 2 nights there was a guy in our room. I don't really understand what happened there? I wasn't really bothered by it, until he ended up being that real obnoxious room mate who had no consideration for the other people and got up and crashed around, not even slightly attempting to be a bit quite at 4:00am. But thank you for the stay!

The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Booking trips took some time since printer/mailing never seemed to work.But the discounts off those trips are worth the waiting. The bar has great offers too. The room was always way too hot, the room included a ventilator, which didn't work every time. (Of course it always worked when we wanted to show it to a staff member.) Also the cleaning ladies always left the lights on after leaving the room. Other than that I highly recommend the hostel!

Our stay was ace! Very helpful staff and the facilities are top notch! If you're not sure what to do in Paris, they offer all sore of tours right at their desk! We did the Montmartre walking tour, the boat tour, and the big bus tour in just two days and feel like we really saw Paris from quite a few perspectives, totally worth it! The staff can book it for you! The bar is always lively with amazing food for good value (something that seems to be a welcomed theme of St Christopher's!)

Thank you so much for such an honest review! We are happy to see you took advantage of the trips and tours we can offer at reception, they are really cost effective, just like the food in Belushi's which you can use your 25% discount on the whole menu! We really appreciate your feedback! See you again next time, St Christopher's Inn GDN

Best Hostel I've stayed at in Europe. The security is great and safe. The beds are personal with a curtain and outlet.The lockers are huge enough to store basically two huge backpacks and more.The staff is very good and helpful.The showers are personal with a place to put your stuff without it getting wet! Yes the location is a little scary outside the hostel but you have to be smart of your surroundings and you will be fine. The food at breakfast and downstairs at the bar is good!

Had a surprisingly good 1st time hostel experience with St. Christopher's Inn. It felt like an upscale college dorm.

Nice hostel. Good value. Great free breakfast and super clean. It's a bit hard to meet fellow backpackers. Good location.

Thank you for your thoughts we really appreciate the feedback so we can improve for our future guests! Did you know we offer a "chill out lounge" where you can meet others in a more laid back environment? Or you can party with other guests and staff in the bar and club! Hope to see you next time!

The hotel location is execellent less then 3min to Gare Du Nord train station. Friendly staffs and towel provided by the hostel. The only problem was, bathroom is super small it just like the flight toilet, hope my next visit to st. Christopher hostel it will change, definately come back again 😊😊: )

The environment at this hostel was not very conducive to interacting with other travellers as a solo traveller. The bar was open to the public, and none of the people I ended up talking to were actually staying at the hostel. Also, I had done online check-in so that I could just drop my bags in my room and go, since I had to meet someone on the other side of the city shortly after arriving, and I had to wait 15 min because they were letting anyone use that line. One of them didn't speak French.

The overall stay is good. Facilities are good and clean, decent breakfast, convenient location and friendly staff. The downside is that there is no much common area for eating and chill out but a bar and also one day there was no hot water.

Thank you for leaving us your thoughts we are always looking at ways we can improve! The free breakfast is perfect for every traveller wanting to fuel up for a day of sight-seeing. You may have missed our "chill out lounge" which is opposite the reception where you can eat and meet other travellers. The staff are always here to help you and make you feel as welcome as possible. See you soon! St Christopher's Inn GDN

I have stayed in the Canal hostel a few times before so it was time to stay at Gare du Nord. Friendly, helpful staff. Great location, right near the train station. Free breakfast was great. Rooms very clean and I liked the chargers and lights in each bunk. One suggestion I have is to have a kettle in the chill out room. Other than that, a great stay!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your thoughts! We are happy you decided to try our GDN site after your experiences at the Canal location. We have both kettle and microwave in the back area of the bar which is available to use for all of our guests! We really appreciate your feedback, see you soon! St Christopher's Inn GDN

The bed pod things are cool, but they could present a situation where you are trying to sleep, but since you have the curtain closed your roommates do not realize it and make lots of noise (note that the curtain does not block out noise). And the reception was busy (the place is gigantic), but was nice enough to let me go back and fetch my forgotten towel.

Thank you for sharing you experience with us! sorry that your roommates weren't as considerate as they could be during your stay! We can provide you free earplugs as well to help with the noise in dorms! We hope to see you again soon! St Christopher's Inn GDN

A good price and good location for Paris accommodation. Good security and the POD beds are good. The showers aren't very hot and don't drain well. It would be good if there were some kitchen facilities. Would recommend to both people wanting to party and those not so keen. Very close to a major metro station making travel very easy.

Thanks so much for leaving your thoughts online for all to read. We are pleased to see that overall you enjoyed our hostel and we appreciate that some guests do require kitchen facilities, we are unfortunately only able to offer the use of a microwave and kettle, however all guests receive excellent discounts in the bar. We are grateful for your recommendations! St Christopher's Inn GDN

It's a great place to stay. Considering all the immigrants there, the neighborhood is a bit sketchy for woman, but not a problem for men. It has great train access. It also very cool and there is value for money ethnic food around there. The beds are comfortable. I slept really well. There is a roof you can chill in. They don't allow alcohol on the roof, but in France you can drink outdoors, so it's not like you are stuck choosing between their bar and outside bars. There's a roof too!

We are grateful for your comments, we are pleased to read that you appreciated the area in the end and managed to try out some new cuisine in the area. There are lots of great places to eat nearby as well as our very cheap bar and restaurant where you get all the discounts. We hope that you will be back to try us out again. St Christopher's Inn GDN

Staff was fantastic, being attached to Belushi's creates a social atmosphere making it impossible not to have a good time. Maintenance issues lead to an entire floor having to share a single male bathroom, not the most cleanly situation though. Everything else was wonderful.

Good stay overall. There were a few problems, such as the door to the room had a funky handle that would occasionally fall off. Also the bathroom flooded a couple times so you had to be ready to check it out before entering. There was always another bathroom that was clean. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Other than that excellent. The best hostel I have ever stayed in

Pro: The hostel is well located and is 20 min walk away from the Louvre. The bartenders are awsome and you will always find someone to talk. The beds are clean and have curtines. Con: Too expensive for a hostel and a room with 8 other people. The breakfast is bad. Bathrooms are average. As usual, sharing a room with 8 people can be hard, but there are lookers for ur personal stuff. I recomend.

Thank you for your review, we are pleased to read that there were so many positives. The staff are great so thank you for adding that in! We hope that despite some negative aspects you found you will still come back, we honestly find our breakfast a decent one for free as many other hostels do not offer such a thing. We will also be adding in some hooks for your personal items. St Christopher's Inn GDN
