This seemed like a very well planned hostel. Storage facilities for luggage (3 euros/day) in addition to the personal wired cages you can use if you have a lock. Individual curtains, reading lights, and power sockets for beds, decent toilet facilities (places to put your stuff while showering), working wifi. Buffet spread of cereal and ham cheese bread (Nutella packs!) comes included. Noisy at times due to the bar downstairs but definitely would stay there if I ever visited Paris again.

I really liked this hostel. The location is brilliant, 5 minutes walk from the gare de Nord in the centre of Paris. The staff were very friendly on check-in. I liked the rooms, they are new and the beds are really comfortable. Each bed has it's own reading light, plug sockets and a privacy curtain. The rooms were like new and were very clean. The breakfast here was really good, the bar had 2 for 1 offers and they have a club in the basement. I would definitely recommend this hostel. Superb!

Thank you for your kind comments we are pleased to read that the staff were so helpful and great we try to encourage the best in them. They really do a fantastic job. We will assess the bathroom situation in order to improve it and prevent any water from leaving the showers, thanks for your comments on this. St Christopher's Inn GDN

Great staff, awesome hostlemates. On the pricey side, but allows more socializing than a hotel. Only detriment is the area can get sketchy at night, have been accosted at least once. But if you can make it back it's very safe inside.

Facilities in room were excellent, particularly USB charge ports, under bed storage lockers and curtains round bunks. Really good atmosphere in hostel generally. The free breakfast was quite limited with only bread and cereals. Maybe consider adding some fruit? Overall a very good stay and I would happily use st Christopher's in future.

We are looking into the idea of fruit with breakfast as it something we feel we can do without adding too much cots, so thank you for the suggestion. it's always nice to see that you enjoyed our large rooms with amazing pod beds that provide you with everything you need. St Christopher's Inn GDN

Lovely, spacious, modern rooms with cool pod beds (curtains a massive bonus). Great nights sleep. Only a handful of showers and toilets per floor but I never had to wait so not an issue. Half hour walk to Notre Dame to begin your day in Paris. Large bar downstairs with sky sports on too. Tip: Pre book a £4.50 full English online. Saves half the price and it's huge and tasty, especially given the normal free breaky is the basic ham, cheese, yogurts etc. Stay here!

We're so pleased to read such a nice review, we are working hard to see such results as these and it's clear to show we hit the nail on the head here. The breakfast upgrade is definitely worth it and if you do want a little lie in this is a great option to have after the free breakfast has finished. St Christopher's Inn GDN

Bar/Restaurant (Bellushi's) downstairs was fantastic and super convenient. Hostel is really big and modern, curtains on beds were great and beds were nice and large. Facilities were great. Gare du Nord is really close which is convenient but it is also a notoriously sketchy area, so I guess you have to be careful. But the hostel is really close and secure. Definitely would recommend and would stay again!

This is a big hostel. I got a private room with my traveling partner and it was small but clean and came with everything we needed, even a coffee pot. They also offer bedside USB outlets which is nice. The downside: its like a college dorm, the bathrooms feel like clean airplane bathrooms and it isn't located near any of the city's attractions. Expect a long walk or subway rides. It is close to a train station that offers frequent rides to the airport for about 10 euros

The neighborhood is not the best but easy access to the metro. The breakfast was good. Misses the hostel atmosphere. The rooms are good. Bathrooms miss some cleaning. The bar is expensive for backpackers.

Very clean and extremely friendly staff. A good location next to the main train station but not within walking distance to any major sites. Each bed had a locker underneath, charging station, reading light, and curtain. Key card access to the floor and the room. Very safe and secure. Would definitely stay there again.

I found this hostel to be very clean, safe and very close to one of the main stations which made it very easy to get around Paris. A bit expensive, yet this is on par with all the other nice hostels in Paris. It was hard to make friends with people outside the room due to the amount of people and the only place was the bar to hang out. A common room to chill would have been nice, but if you're a social person you should be fine. But good stay in Paris, I would come back no doubt about it!

Decent place, great staff, atmosphere and an awesome bar downstairs. Only downsides was the location - even though it is close to the metro, Gare du Nord is a pretty dodgy area, and it didn't feel the safest walking to and from the hostel. Also the room was very hot.

Each bed having its own set of outlets and lights was a fantastic feature.

The Hostel had no common places for you to meet people besides the Belushi's bar, which was quite expensive compared to others.

A pleasant enough stay with lovely staff. The area is however a little shady at night because of its proximity to two major train stations.

Really fun, friendly hostel. The bar was a bit expensive but there were good deals for people staying there. Rooms were super nice, with individual curtains for each bed giving a decent amount of privacy.

Unfortunately no kitchen no, however we do have a room where you can prepare some small dishes, there's a preparation area, a sink, a kettle and a microwave for you to use. Despite this we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. St Christopher's Inn GDN
