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.

    Great place, I like the location which allows an easy walk to Eiffel Tower and other sites. I also appreciate the attention to detail regarding hygiene and Corona, they favor science and health here. Also the rooms are really nice when considering the rate, also modern and are kept up nicely, the property itself is fantastic and thorough update makes the 18th century place top notch, plus there's a popular bar. Merci merci!

    The best thing about this hostel is its excellent location: one minute walk from the "Commerce" metro station and less than 20 minutes walk from the Eiffel Tower. Diverse restaurants and shops are literally outside of the hostel. One of their staff, Valerie, is very nice and helpful. However, I found out on my last night that the lock on my room (103) was faulty. I did report it to the staff before I checked out. I stayed here 3 times in the past and would stay here again. Great hostel!

    Really liked the location! About a 30 minute metro journey to more central areas of Paris, but also a 30ish minute walk to the Eiffel tower and in a really beautiful and cute neighborhood that I loved walking through. Facilities were alright, classic squeaky metal bunk beds. Busy courtyard bar, which was a really fun atmosphere, but kinda hard to meet people as a solo traveller. The bar is open to the public, so it was hard to know who was actually staying there.

    Decent hostel. Pros: - Decent location - Most affordable place to be which was in town at late notice - Room facilities were good Cons: - Staff weren't as friendly/helpful as some other hostels - bunks have no edges on top bunks so don't roll about in your sleep - Heating was broken in room so we were roasted alive (opened door to outside in the middle of the night to cool the place)

    Great location cuz the place it’s surrounded by restaurants, bars and convenience stores. The room was okay but the cleaning should be better. The only problem what I saw there was the two Argentinian guys at the desk, they were grumpy like “forced” to be working or maybe the weren’t happy with their job idk but at least the French lady on my check out was completely different and she was so kind. Just to be clear about the guys is not a matter of nationality but the service attitude was.

    When we first arrived, the women at the front desk was rude, she seemed to be fed up with everything and it was a horrible welcome to the hostel, it left my friend and I wanted to stay at a different one. The location is pretty good. Our bathroom was not very clean and there was a ceiling tile missing over the shower which was unsettling. There are so many options for hostels within Paris and unfortunately we wish we chose another.

    Didn’t feel clean. Dirt on floor didn’t look swept. clock rings every hour and bar doesn’t calm down till late. You can hear everything. Rooms so small you couldn’t take out your clothes. Absolutely trash rooms and dirty. I went here do to the reviews but someone is lying. Just pay more for something else. Had to pay for room card and towels. Room card should be free with a hotel.

    Our bedsheets were not clean. There were no towels in the room. The room wasn’t even heating. It was a nightmare. We were shivering and couldn’t sleep. We explained this during check out. Very disappointed, after paying 100€ per night for private double room.
