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'.

    A great hostel with an amazing staff! Everyone there goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome. Everyday they have a free drink or food that really helps with socializing with others staying. Joris and Shemayah we’re the best! They both recommended local places for us to go, and made us feel like friends rather than just guests! This was by far my favorite hostel from my whole trip.

    My friend and I stayed here for five days and would have stayed longer if we had the time! St Christopher's Inn Canal is in great location to the metro, restaurants, and supermarkets. We stayed in a 12 bed mixed dorm and felt that the atmosphere provided by the hostel gave us so many opportunities to meet others to either do activities at the hostel or go out into Paris together. The staff were incredibly helpful in giving great recommendations for eating and activities during our stay.

    Location is further and we had an issue with mosquitoes, given how close it is to the canal. I stayed in a room without an ensuite bathroom and I felt that the showers could get a bit dirty sometimes but it wasn't unbearable.

    Friendly staff, nice area, the canal was beautiful, especially the view at night and breakfast was from and till a good time. The people I'm my room were loud all night, packing for 3 hours at 4 am and whispering, it would have been fine if they had an early flight or something but they stayed till like 9am, not the fault of the hostel but still annoying.

    Everything is perfect except for 2 things: 1- it’s very noisy at night. 2- it’s very expensive. Regarding the location, it’s safe and very beautiful you can really feel you’re in France

    The bathrooms are always moist and you have to keep pressing a button to shower. Nice rooms. Good staff. Good atmosphere if you want to party/go out to bars a lot. A little loud. Pretty good location.

    The place was ok. Some of the staff are super friendly and nice( mostly the women) men on the other hand.... seem like they don’t want to be there and it bothers them to help. If you want a good nights rest in a quiet and calm place... then maybe this is not the place for you. If you like to party and drink though, this is the perfect spot. Close to a subway station.... but relatively far away from every major tourist attraction.
