Hostelworld users rated St Christopher's Paris the most popular Paris hostel at the 2011 Hoscars, and it's not hard to see why. We like that each of their beds has an under-bed locker, privacy curtains, a reading light and two power outlets. This hostel contains a bar and club, with discounts on drinks and what visitors assure us is 'good-value, yummy food'. Our guests have said this hostel has a 'good atmosphere downstairs and always [has] heaps of people around', 'perfect for people that want to have some fun'.

    Superb

    Had a superb stay at their Canal branch! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Locker rental was also very convenient if you arrive early for check in or if u have to fly back late, so u dont have to bring your suitcase with you all the time. Just recommended it to some friends who are also going to Paris! Will definitely book them again for my next travels since they have branches throughout EU.

    My first proper hostel experience and i had so much fun. Staff were friendly and helpful, other guests were super friendly in the bar and very respectful and quiet in the rooms. Was very happy with everything, only critique- the bunk bed and doors squeaked really loudly which made it a bit difficult to not disturb/ be disturbed when coming in and out or getting into bed (they probably just need some WD40)

    Clean, good atmosphere in bar and nice being along the water. Rooms were very good and beds comfortable. Only downsides are there is no kitchen in the hostel and you have to take the metro to get into central Paris. However metro is reasonably cheap and quick to use

    Fabulous

    28 Oct 2021
    Hostel was super clean and tidy, with nice big cages to store luggage! Although if you want to lock the cage you’ll need a big lock not a little small one that you can use on a backpack. Ideal location, heaps of surrounding metro stations that easily get you into the city and to all the tourist spots. There is a bar downstairs with a pretty good atmosphere, so ideal for meeting people :)

    Good value, the beds are uncomfy though so I would recommend bringing a pillow or softer things to make the experience better. The bed was hard and the pillow was very thin it didn't provide any support. Other than that, it was a solid hostel at a good location.

    Nice spot, incredible location. Fairly clean and nice staff. Decent amenities available. I would recommend staying here purely based on location alone!

    This place nickels and dimes you for all they can. Towels, laundry, you name it. The showers automatically turn off every 30 seconds to get you out faster to save water. The elevator takes 5-10 minutes to go 1-5 floors, and there are signs encouraging you to take the stairs, and the “free” breakfast wasn’t free. I get it, you’re a chain corporate hostel that lives on margin, but wow did it really make it hard to enjoy my stay. You can find a better experience for the same/better price elsewhere.

    For the price I would recommend paying more for a hostel closer to the centre of the city. If you're looking for something further out than the location may suit you. Staff was friendly and helpful. The hostel itself is located on top of a bar, so you have to go through the bar to reach the hostel. The rooms themselves were clean, it was just the cleanliness of the shared bathrooms where there was a problem.
