    The hostel was amazing. Great food. Awesome staff, the main manager, Gonzalo was top notch in his way of treating us. The bar staff was always attentive and in an excellent mood. The reception was smooth and fast, the room was clean, the showers were okay, pressure of water was nice. Could be a little bit "complicated" to work in the lounge or the bar due the loud noise of breakfast or finding a table can be complicated too... but internet works okay to hold conversations on Zoom/Teams good

    Pretty great Hostel! I got a good deal, so it was also cheap. It has an amazing view to the canal, a big locker for every bed, people are mostly travelers, and the vibe is really good!! If I ever go somewhere that has St. Christopher's, I'll surely look it up before I look other hostels up!

    The location isn’t great, but it was clean, good beds, had lockable cages under the beds for luggage which is great, hostel-organized social events each night, the bathrooms were clean, staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was coffee, juice, cereal, extremely hard boiled eggs, small baguettes, cheese, yogurt, and fruit syrup.

    It was a cool hostel. A little bit away from the main attractions but very close too two metro stations that bring one right into the center of Paris. Nice people and very good atmosphere. The only thing the could be slightly improved upon is room cleaning a bit more often and shelf’s in the shower for soaps. Otherwise great place.

    Very Good location, but otherwise very dirty and overpriced with a not good breakfast. Bathrooms and dorm rooms kept dirty. No common work spaces and Wifi was scattered depending on where you are in the hostel, so hard to work
