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.

    Nice small hostel very close to the metro (line 8). Our room was very stylish with its own toilet and bathroom. The bar serves many beers for good price. The breakfast included in the price is rather monotonous after two days, but it’s really good to have something to eat.

    Really lovely hostel, location was perfect literally 2 minutes from metro station which was perfect for seeing the city. The hostel itself is quite small and there is a bar downstairs which gets quite noisy at night. So if you want a quite night in I would definitely recommend ear plugs. Overall the rooms were nice though!

    For a short stay in paris this hostel is perfect. There are a few issues when it comes to how clean the shower is however everywhere else is so clean. The location is perfect. 20 munute walk to the effiel tower and then about a 30 minute walk to anywhere else. We didn't need to use the metro at all. The staff were so helpful and lovely in regards to any questions we had. The breakfast is okay as well. I would recommend it.

    Everything fine, excepting the Wi-Fi. The wi-fi network never seemed to work and it was useless.Everybody who was staying there confirmed that. I strong advise the management to fix this issue by adding a more capable internet connection and a professional router, else please remove the wi-fi from description, it’s either one.

    Just stayed here 2 days ago. Overall, it's a nice enough hostel but don't expect any luxuries. Wifi is non-existent. They'll give you an access code to get connected but it doesn't work. A staff member connected me to a private network - but that's not the norm. If you want a towel, you pay €6 and get €3 back when you return it. You'll also pay €5 deposit for your room key. The security lockers are tiny - don't expect to get all your belongings in there. Breakfast = basic, but nice.

    The WiFi DOES NOT work! Mold everywhere in the bathroom. 8 euro for the room card deposit, if you lose your receipt you don’t get the euro back even if you return your card. Sheets were nice, atmosphere of the bar is nice.

    Facility is clean and modern and a good breakfast is included. When we checked in we had booked a reservation and the staff member at the front desk tried to tell us we owed €100 more until we showed him the reservation with the price on it. He fumbled and explained there was some kind of error and charged us a few Euro less than the price we showed him. Seemed a lot like he was trying to charge us more, super sketchy. Also the hostel is 22 mins from the Eiffel Tower, not 10. Loud, creaky beds.

    Security - My room on the ground floor had a window which was open this meant it could easily be accessible for anyone who came for the bar to access the rooms. Location- is pretty good. Very close to stations.About a 22-25 minute walk to Eiffel Tower. Staff- Very Nonchalant and don’t care too much as they even said it’s “just a hostel” Now what I was displeased with the most was the Vibe. This place doesn’t even attempt to integrate any of the travellers. It’s more just a local bar
