I stayed for one night and everything was great. Overall feel is kind of corporate and clinical but everything works well and it had everything you need. Only problems I had were with the communal toilet sinks that were pretty grubby and the showers were on push timers that lasted 3 seconds.

Big hotel style hostel. There isn't much that stands out except for spacious rooms and pod style beds. The bar downstairs doesn't substitute a kitchen and as the main common area doesn't really contribute to a hostel atmosphere. Good breakfast. Close to major train and metro stations.

Hey, We're pleased to receive your feedback about your stay with us and it's great to read that you enjoyed the rooms in the hostel and our great pod beds too. It's disappointing to read that you didn't enjoy our bar, we generally get great comments as it's a good space for everyone to meet up. In the back restaurant there is also a microwave and kettle for use too. This allows you to have small meals there too. St Christopher's inn GDN

Great location, super close to Gare du Nord, supermarket right around the corner. Not a huge fan of the bathrooms though. No matter what you do - in the end everything is wet. And you get all the water (and dirt) from the person showering right next to you, too. Breakfast is great. Friendliness of staff is only average. When I had a problem with my key card they seemed annoyed that I interrupted them chatting.

Amazing hostel. I'd say the only downside is the showers with timers that are rather annoying. Breakfast is great and so are the bedrooms. All the other hostels pale in comparison

Hello, I'm pleased to see you gave us some positive constructive feedback, we will look to use your comments to improve the way we operate. We are firstly ecstatic to read that you thought we are an amazing hostel we are trying to be! The showers are our main focus right now because of the renovations in place and these will help us to improve in the coming months. Thanks again, St Christopher's Inn GDN

the lady at the bar was very rude and refused to let me order dinner at 9pm because the kitchen was "too busy" she didn't seem to care and kindof just shrugged like it wasn't her problem.

Salut, Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased to see that most of your stay went well, however to read your comments about the Belushi's bar we see we will have to communicate with them to help improve the services. A waiting time before ordering may well be a better way of informing guests of the wait they may experience. I hope that we will be seeing you again soon. Thanks again for your thoughts!

4 of us booked in 1 room with bathroom. Location is handy, very close to main train station, shops. Room is clean, bed is comfortable.every beds have 24 hours reception. Wi-Fi is good. There are 2 USB shocks, 2 European power plugs and light on each bed. We chose this place to stay when we came back to Paris.

Excellent facilities, especially if you book a four-person deluxe room. Little things like free earplugs, a modern building design, and a small shelf above your bed really made me love this hostel. Some things that threw me off: 1. Homeless people hanging out in the lounge room. The staff should've asked them to leave. Not sure why this was allowed. 2. One of my roommates being asked by the staff to move to another room despite having booked several consecutive days. I would recommend.

Fabulous and very helpful staff... Only stayed for one night on a stop over... But I loved the bed set up, and amazing staff.

Thank you so much for your great comments about our staff! They work really hard to make your stay one of the best and they are always there to help! It's a shame you couldn't stay with us even longer but a one night-er is as good as any. We are very grateful for your amazing review! St Christopher's Inn GDN

We was 3 and we booked to stay all in the same room . When we arrived, we had to stay in separate bedroom, disregarding what was combined

Got a private room here for two nights with a girl I know in Paris, no complaints, was a very good deal and super clean. The attached club throws a great party.

Hey, It's nice to hear we could hook you and your friend up with a decent few nights sleep. It's always a pleasure to hear such nice things about your experiences. It's also great to read that you loved the bar too!

It's a big hostel so is more conveyor-belt or supermarket style than those of the smaller variety, but the location is excellent and I couldn't fault the cleanliness in a shared dorm (including the ensuite). Breakfast was better than I'd anticipated. It did get very noisy due to a nightclub outside the dorm window but I slept fine once earplugs were in. Convenient 30 minute train journey from CDG. Lots of nice Indian restaurants a stone's throw away (good for vegetarians in Paris). Worth price.

Overall good, but the checkout time is too early in order to get back the deposit.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi, Sorry to see you found the check-out too early, it's a set time and unfortunately we are unable to change the times as the cleaners need enough time to get upstairs and clean the beds etc. Other than that it's great to see you enjoyed your stay. St Christopher's Inn GDN

The dorm room was large, and the beds were comfy, clean and well designed (the bunks were well built, and didn't squeak; there was a reading light, USB slots and a privacy curtain for each bed). One of the bathrooms was out of order, so the other was rather busy. Breakfast was simple but adequate.

Hi, Fantastic to read that you enjoyed so much of your stay and we were able to offer you a clean and comfy place to lay your head. I'm sorry that the bathrooms are under renovation it does increase traffic in the others but we hope to see massive improvements once all our renovations have been completed. The other facilities in the beds are great though, extra privacy and convenience there! St Christopher's Inn GDN team

Typical big hostel, has all the facilities- chill out area, laundry, wifi everywhere, big sports bar with pool table/ meals etc. Breakfast is pretty basic but fills a whole in the tummy, and bathrooms are tiny in the private rooms. Sports shown all the time in the bar is sweet. Not exactly cheap but pretty standard for Paris. All in all pretty good stay and has everything you need.
