I lost $900 because it wasn’t safe enough to stay. That was the main problem, though it was also dirty, sterile, and cold. After reading some good reviews, I booked a week before arriving from Dublin. Upon arrival, a man in the elevator going up was holding a letter stating how “he was required to sleep in his own bed.” My room did not have a manual internal latch (only an automatic lock, which the staff could still open). The door handle/latch were flimsy, and the lock on my window was messed up as well. At 3am, a loud fight broke out below my window. The staff was cold, rude, and unhelpful, and wouldn’t allow me to cancel the remaining 6 nights, even though I felt in danger as a solo female traveller. I ended up just leaving because my safety was worth more than the $900 lost. Stay literally anywhere else but here.

We’ve stayed at several hostels in the past, and this is by far the worst! We were a group of three travelers. The private dual-bunk bedroom was way too cramped for three people, and what more for four persons? It was a mistake to trust other online reviews. Upon arrival, we were greeted with rudeness (this was after a whole day of train travel), the unpleasantness was already a red-flag by then. There was a female reception that was the exception for she was cordial and warm. The linens were thin and ratty, we couldn’t sleep as doors were banging loudly each time another guest(s) exit their room. Imagine this going all-night long. The showers were clogged so dirty water would pool above ankles, thank goodness, other guests weren’t into showering everyday. We worried about getting athlete’s foot (disgusting!). Breakfast buffet was mediocre with hard-boiled eggs, croissants (first day croissants weren’t fresh), hot & cold beverages, cereals, whole fruits, and a baguette that was handled by the entire hotel community (gross!), hostel should provide a bread cloth to protect the bread from microbe-laden hands, no bread knife either, there was a butter knife to cut the baguette. We ordered dinner on our first night from the hostel’s restaurant, our burgers and fries must have been cooked on the Dead Sea as it was superlatively salty. Do NOT stay at this hostel!

Firstly it’s a hostel so there are multiple people to a room and it can be noisy. This should be expected. St Christopher’s i found to be perfectly clean and the inclusion of a bar on the ground level is convenient for a beer when you get back. There are multiple screens showing sport which when j was there includes football and NFL Each bed is allocated a metal cage to keep your belongings during the day and in the basement are lockers that can be used after checking out. There is an option to add continental breakfast which is highly recommend. I opted for this and set myself up well until mid afternoon. Lastly the location is slightly further out than some but is within 10 mins of the metro. If you are used to walking around cities this should pose no problem at all. Overall i will likely stay here again when i return to Paris in the coking months.

Visited St christophers Inn Paris, lovely efficient, clean and comfortable. Along side is belushis bar.also known as beds and bars.Last Saturday evening we were excited to watch the rugby world cup and soak up the local atmosphere. I sat at a table reserved, so moved to another, this too was reserved, so I moved again to a table with no reservation. After one drink, my partner joined me. Along came another 3 people who sat at the same table. All of a sudden a man came up and directed his conversation at me. He said he wants the table I am sitting on, as he has a NICE family of six. He will show me another table I can use. I said I did not want to move as this was the third time. He then became most irate and said he wanted the table, I asked him why he was just asking me and no-one else siting at the table. There was a table infront of us with one man at a table of 6 but did not ask him. I had to use the lavatory and on my return decided to go to the bar. On my return he, whom I since found out is Keith Knowles, blocked my path, I said I needed him out of my way, he then called security and stopped the bar staff to serve me. My partner then interveened and told him that he better not touch me. I said, I am not worried about buying a drink, but I am still not leaving my seat. He did not leave it at that, he came back in my face while seated, and still tried to argue. I told him not to speak to me, then he left. I believe this man is dangerous and do worry for single female travellers. This could have escalated out of control. He is a manipulator and really should step down from his job. All female travellers please be careful of this man.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Bad service, elevator still doesn’t work. Drunks and drug addicts bring the noise and the down-and-out ambiance. Tijuana atmosphere from the guests to the trashy end of the road feel including the receptionists (who don’t speak French or have customer service training) and the club downstairs. If you have an ounce of self-respect avoid this heartbreak habitat. Save up for something nice. Treat yourself to a real accommodation.

Overall, it's an ok hostel. Decent breakfast for an alright price. The evening activities to get people talking and involved is a great idea and it works. Staff are friendly. Rooms are hot, no air conditioning. The door handle on our room was finicky, but once you got the hang of it, it was fine. It's in an ok spot

I recently had a highly disappointing experience with St Christopher's Inn Paris - Canal, which compelled me to share my feedback. After booking a stay with the hotel, circumstances changed, and I promptly requested a cancellation and refund within 24 hours, in full compliance with consumer protection laws. Unfortunately, the response I received was far from satisfactory: the hotel proceeded to cancel my reservation without issuing a refund. This decision not only contradicted the regulations set forth to protect consumers, but it also left me feeling deceived and frustrated. The lack of transparency and failure to honor the refund rightfully due to me was deeply disappointing. Moreover, the hotel's refusal to provide a clear explanation for their actions only exacerbated my dissatisfaction. It is disheartening to witness such disregard for customer rights and fair treatment. If the hotel was unwilling to refund the money, the booking should not have been canceled in the first place, as it gives the impression of unjustly withholding funds from consumers. I believe it is crucial for potential guests to be aware of the hotel's inadequate customer service and disregard for consumer rights. I sincerely hope that the management of St Christopher's Inn Paris - Canal addresses their flawed approach to customer service and takes necessary steps to rectify this matter.

Hello Fabiano, As we have discussed in several emails, you chose a non-refundable fee when you booked online and that is why we are not able to refund you for the reservation you made. Furthermore, according to the law, those 14 days to withdraw from an online purchase in the EU do not apply to the tourism industry, which is why most hotels / airlines / train companies offer non-refundable fees. Your reservation was restored as you requested in an email. Please, do not hesitate to let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with. Have a nice day

This hostel is fantastic! All of the staff have been amazing, very friendly and professional, lots of fun, and very helpful. Particularly Lys at reception, and this one very kind security guard who’s name I believe was Momo. Lys was super cool and made the stay that much nicer. Momo rescued us from some sketchy characters who were bothering us outside the hostel late at night, and he was really funny. The other reception staff were also super cool but I don’t have any of their names. It was just a great time, the facility was very nice, the hangout room was perfect, the social events were awesome including the night club downstairs. Also, despite the odd people you tend to encounter at night in any big city, the area seemed relatively safe. My friend I made here has stayed in 8 different Paris hostels and said this was the best one BY FAR. Not to mention the price was very reasonable. I would recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Paris.

Hello 👋! It was okay in general, apart there was no locker nor fridge and also no plug-in in my bed. Guests and hosts were nice but not as friendly as in the UK "ST. CHRISTOPHER INN FOR YOUTH" in Scotland, Edinburgh 🇬🇧 👀 😇. I forgot to add there was no lift / elevator ...! One advantage was the location near the metro 🚇.
