There are always friendly people hanging out on our terrace or relaxing in the chillout room – we even have a world-famous Belushi's bar downstairs. With food and drink discounts, an on-site travel kiosk and free Wi-Fi throughout the building, our hostel is an ideal base for exploring the ‘City of Lights’.

Location

Travelling around Paris is easy from our hostel. We're on the Rue de Crimée, just three stops from the Gare du Nord train station and a 5-minute stroll from the Crimée Métro stop. If you're heading to a gig at Zenith Concert Hall, you can walk it in 15 minutes. The canal-front promenade is right outside our front door; ideal for getting fashion tips from those famously chic Parisians or for joggers taking a scenic route.

Our mixed dorms are airy, modern and clean, and each bed has a privacy curtain to use whether you're sleeping, changing or perfecting your Downward Dog. There's a reading light and two power sockets by each bunk, so you can charge your devices while you snooze. The under-bed lockers are handy for keeping your valuables safe while you're out and about, and the in-room Wi-Fi means you can update your friends on last night without even getting out of bed.

We have a big outdoor terrace, which is the perfect place to hang out with fellow travellers or enjoy the view over the canal. The chillout room is always buzzing too.

    PSA: If you’re booking this hostel do it directly from the St. Christopher’s website to get free breakfast! My hostel stay here was fantastic! The staff were all so kind and helpful and made the stay extremely enjoyable. The restaurant and bar in the hostel adds to the experience and people staying in the hostel get special deals at both! It was also extremely clean and ran very smoothly. My favorite hostel yet!

    Great Location by the canal. Bed was comfortable and clean. Downstairs cafe has a nice view. Staff are super friendly. Only downside is the Room smelled like 12 people's shoes after a long day walking in Paris to the point where my eyes hurt and I had to perfume spray around my bed to sleep.

    The hostel is situated in a really beautiful area. The sunsets from the bridge were truly beautiful. The staff were very friendly and even helped us print some of our bookings. The rooms were pretty clean. The bar downstairs offers some good food but the overall atmosphere was quite and calming. I wouldn’t say this is the hostel to meet people.

    I wish I had booked the Gare du Nord location since the transit strike was happening during my visit. So I had to walk a lot more, but the neighborhood is really quiet. When I came the first night, my bed wasn't properly made which is concerning but that was fixed the next day. Overall I found the staff quite accomodating. My favorite was all the nightly deals on food at Belushis. Who doesn't love cheap, accessible, good food?

    Got a private room for me and my partner which was quite nice but had holes and cracks all along the ceiling, plus the plugs didn't work. The staff were friendly however seemed annoyed whenever we didn't take up on the offers they provided like transport as we preferred to walk. The key cards often didn't work and I got locked on the stairwell trying to head to the toilet as our shared one was completely out of order. Overall worth the money but the connected bar is the best part of the hostel.

    Bad smell all over the place, not as clean as expected. It has more than a hotel vibe than a hostel one. The area near the hostel doesnt have many night options
