Welcome to 3 Ducks Boutique Hostel and Bar.

3 Ducks is housed in a former 18th century coaching inn considered to be a historical monument and is protected by Les Batiments de France as such. Founded in 1987, the 3 ducks is the oldest private hostel in France. These almost 30 years serving millions of travellers around the world have earned the 3 ducks its international reputation for its lively and friendly atmosphere.

In April 2014, after two years of extensive work The 3 ducks has been rebuilt.
Thanks to the restoration of the external facade under the direction of the Vieux Paris building commission, and a complete renovation of the interior in collaboration with a renowned French architect and two graphic artists, the result is spectacular.

Today the 3 ducks today offers all amenities a traveller could expect including rooms with shower and toilet , hairdryer, wifi , safe, reading lamp with USB ports, and air conditioning, all in a uniquely decorated environment. With its magnificent outside terrace and exclusive services the 3 ducks hostel is likely the most comfortable and well designed hostel in Paris.

    The location is great - 10/15 min walk to the Eiffel Tower but its easy to walk to any place from there. It is above a bar which is busy and loud all night which I dont mind but a fair warning to others. All of the staff was super nice from start to finish though and the place was really clean. I would definitely stay here again - it was a cute place!

    Loved the room! We stayed in a private 5 bed and the space was good, restroom and shower were nice. Staff was also nice. Location was right by a metro stop which is always ideal. Good food in the area that’s not so touristy. Would stay again!

    Very nice place. Beds are clean and comfortable, showers are in the rooms, easy check-in. No lockers in rooms but there are safes for your belongings. Breakfast was great, lots of food. Wifi was quite slow. Two metro stops to the Eiffel Tower and the metro is 2 seconds of a walk from the hostel. Lots of restaurants right across the street and grocery stores nearby as well.

    Only concern was no ticket/check for keeping luggage in the bag storage after checkout. Other hostels give you a ticket/number.

    Not the best of places and could use some upgrades and renovations. The staff is super nice and helpful!! Compared to the location and price - you get what you pay for. It would have been nice to have some hooks on the wall - that would lessen the clutter on the floor and give guests a bit more space.

    I really enjoyed my stay! It’s super close to a metro station which made getting around very easy. It’s a 20 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower so that’s the first thing I saw in Paris. My only complaints are that the bathroom needs a good scrub because for some reason bathrooms in Europe have terrible ventilation. Also I found a lot of hair in my bed that I know wasn’t mine.

    The location was great and an easy walk to many places and to the metro. The rooms were not the cleanest and it didn’t seem like they were cleaned that well each day. It has a bar within the hostel that many people not staying in the hostel come to, which makes it a busy spot, but fun. Breakfast is free if you’re okay with very simple (toast, yogurt, oatmeal, cereal). Overall good place to stay while in Paris!

    Very Good

    WiFi sucks. Beds are metal so very loud every time someone moves around. The shower curtain in my bathroom was disgusting. There’s small safes in the rooms but a few of them didn’t work. The kitchen is TINY. Very close to a metro. The breakfast was nice (cereal yogurt bread juices coffee tea). Luggage storage for free.

    I paid extra for an all girls room only and on my last night staying at the location, there was a couple who stayed in the room a young lady and gentleman. I went the next morning when I was checking out and told the gentleman at the front desk that I had paid extra for a girls only room and he blamed another employee and said that they can not descriminate. I asked him why the offered the girls only option then and he brushed me off and continued to blame a different employee for the booking.
