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.

    Awesome hostel! An easy straight walk to the tour! The staff was awesome and always welcoming. The location was great for the tour but pretty far from everything else but the subway and bus station are close. I would stay here again because the tour was my favorite part and we went every night!

    Love how cute the courtyard is and the fact the bars is filled with a local Vibe. Room photos are a bit deceiving, and the beds are too squeaky for a hostel (Metal frames with little to no support) great for a quick place to stay to see the sights, not for an extended period of time.

    The hostel is very conveniently located beside 2 metro stops in a safe neighbourhood close to the Eiffel Tower The bedrooms are clean and rooms are decent with the bathrooms inside the bedrooms. If you are a solo traveler it is probably not the place for you as it is difficult to meet other travellers since the hostel does not run activities and the bar/common area is a local hot spot for the neighbourhood.

    Very Good

    Overall a good place to stay. If you are looking for good sleep this is not the place for you. People were heard partying until 2:47, yes a very specific number as we had to be awake at 6AM for an early flight. Very annoying.

    The staff wasn’t very friendly at all except this older lady. They were really friendly to their friends that came into the bar tho lol. It was more of a hangout spot for locals rather than a hub for travelers to meet and mingle. Way overpriced if you ask me. Rooms were clean tho and the beds were better than most hostels.

    Stayed at multiple hostels in other cities and always found people to speak with, etc. Nearly everyone I saw staying here already spoke French so the whole concept of social hostel went out the door immediately. I was charged a deposit for my towel (fine) - but I have to pay for every towel change after? What a joke. Rooms were stuffy and awkward. Shower and toilet were like cardboard box sizes. Shower floor was constantly soaked in a puddle of water. I’m just happy I got a hotel later.

    Absolutely contemptible staff; facilities not worth the cost; Typical overpriced Parisian spot. I was assigned one bed the first night, then came back the next night to find that my things were moved from my bed to the side of the room. And someone else had placed their belongings onto my bed. All of the surrounding beds were either dirtied or being used, so I went downstairs to let the front desk know. The scum at the desk wags his finger at me and tells me I had chosen the wrong bed.
