Overview

Get ready to party in Paris, right here at St Christopher's Inn Canal – whether you're travelling solo or with your best mates. 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.

Extras and activities

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. Belushi's is open every night with live music, TV sports and fun events where you can meet new people. Our guests get 25% off food and 2-for-1 drinks deals all day (don't miss the famous burgers!).

    This was my first time staying at a hostel and I was pretty satisfied. It’s a little far away from the main sight seeing parts of the city but extremely close to a few metro lines. Pretty clean dorms, I was even upgraded from a 12 person room to a 6 person room!

    Fabulous

    Great place to stay in Paris. I went in August, so the hostel was quiet, and only one girl in my room for 8 people, due to coronavirus. However, the bar tenders are very chatty and create a great atmosphere. Location is good with two metro stations less than 5 minute walk away so you can be at all the big sights in 30mins. The bedrooms were clean and safe, bathrooms were ok but a bit dirty. I would definitely stay here again!!

    It’s a nice hostel and rooms are big and beds are comfortable. Unfortunately, they don’t have a kitchen and that’s bad once you’re traveling on a budget.

    Really didn't like the feel of the place. I felt like they were churning tourist meat. the place was very impersonal. They threw the locker cages in the middle of the room like they forgot they should exist then put them there in a panic. The bathrooms make me feel like i'm back in school. They have a room you can hang out in, away from the music, but they shut it at night? WWWHHHHHYYYY?!
