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.

    I had a great time on my two night stay at 3 Ducks Hostel. It was in a perfect location with lots to do and many restaurants/cafes.As well as the price it’s just even more great! Getting around was super easy! Just a few mins from the metro station. Everyone that works there is extremely helpful, they gave great directions on how to get around the city! Can’t wait till I come back and stay here once again!

    This was my second stay in this hostel. The venue is located a 15 min walk from the Eiffel tower. The surrounding neighbourhood is lively with restaurants and boutique shopping stores. As it is a relatively wealthy area of Paris, the price is a bit high; however, the central location makes up for it by the added convenience. Will definitely stay here again if visiting Paris.

    It’s was great. I stayed in a studio. It’s was very nice. The door lock at the studio was a little complicated but I adjusted to it. Other than that it was great. I will definitely come back. I would recommend 3 ducks to anyone.

    I really liked it here! The location was lovely and the shops close by were cute! The 3Ducks was walking distance to the Eiffel and other Paris attractions; which was a huge bonus for us! The bar downstairs provided a great atmosphere, and the included breakfast was a blessing! Definitely would stay again when back in Pars! Thank you!

    The hostel was fine. Except it’s really more of a 30 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower and the WiFi was awful. I was also surprised they didn’t have the big lockers for your bag. But shout out to Pedro the bar tender from peru! He was outstanding and took such good care of my friends and I. I’d stay here again just for him!

    The hostel is in a good location just next to the metro station. Pity when we are there, an insane metro strike was going on in paris since 20 days, and this metro station and line is closed. Little the hostel can do about it but the commute to other parts became difficult. The hostel has a bar on the ground floor, but there are limits possibilities to socialise with others. They also serve breakfast but which is only till 9:30 which is again a bummer (should be till 10 atleast)

    The French local staff is terribly brisk, rude, unhelpful & short with the visitors that are spending there hard earned money worth them. Beak fest is at 7:30am - don’t even ask for a cup of coffee at 7:25am. On top of that, the room was not properly maintained, the heat doesn’t work. Simple really, stay somewhere else.

    The bunk beds were so wobbly and no charging cubby, your phone has to stay laying in your bed all night. Made my experience a forgettable one! Stay somewhere else!
