    Superb

    Its an amazing property with really great views of the canal, the church and everything. Its conveniently located near to Metro. Not too far from the tourist spots, One could easily take the Metro. It was all super fun , except that the Elevator was broken and had to climb 5 flights of stairs with luggage. But the staff was good and offered the help with luggage and everything.

    Thanks for the stay at your hostel. I really enjoyed, though it was a little expensive for a 6 bed dorm. It was clean, but a bit loud at night.

    Overall a good stay. Liked having a quieter common area but wished it was open 24/7. The under bed lockers were loud and there was no way to prop them up so you had to hold it up the whole time while digging through your stuff which was hard if it was dark and you needed to hold a flashlight.. Always saw them cleaning but the hallway always smelled. The bar was busy Friday and Saturday. Be prepared to walk or metro 30-45 minutes to all major sites. The area around it has shops and restaurants

    THERE IS NO KITCHEN OR FRIDGE BEWARE! It’s a shame too because it means you’re forced to eat out and spend more money in this expensive hostel.

    It is quite noisy at night, but it is Paris. You would expect a little bit better facilities for the money too, but it is Paris!

    I think the price is too high for the place. The showers didn’t drain and the bathroom was flooded with dirty shower water. My room had a weird smell. Nothing was overly clean and there was a lot of maintenance that needed to be done. The plug in and light in my bunk did not work. Location is fine. Not spectacular but close enough to buses and subways.

    left 3 days in to a 5 day stay. bad roommates, but that’s not the hostels fault. what was their fault was the whole room smelling like mold, my original sheets and pillow smelling of mold, my original blanket covered in stains, and bathrooms that smelled horrible. i had to ask twice for the bedding situation to be fixed. elevator was broken as well. location is pretty inconvenient to walk to anything, so need to be confident with the metro. picked this hostel because it was the cheapest option in paris, but

    This was the most disgusting hostel I’ve ever stayed in. Every corner of the place there was a new disgusting smell, there were constantly drunk and puking guests in front of the building, the shared bathrooms were vile, and I was beyond scared to even touch the free breakfast. I would never stay here again and feel sorry that St Christopers name has been used for a place this horrible.
