St Christophers was our first ever experience staying in a hostel and we were only were there one night so whilst we didn't get to experience it in great depth this is what we thought.
St Christophers is well out of central Paris in the 19th district so it is abit of a trek to get there. The area did appear to be abit sketchy and dirty but we did not really get a chance to explore it as we were only there one night.
The hostel has a large bar which we put to good use. The bar was not for the exclusive use of the guests so there were a few locals in it, as well as a few sketchy looking characters.The bar overlooked a canal which was very dirty which was a shame to see.
We stayed in a 12 bed dorm and didn't have any issues with our room. Each floor had a key card and there was even a females only floor which I'm sure some travellers would appreciate. Each bed also had a large locker underneath it which you needed your own key for.
One of the negatives was the cost. As a general rule, everything in Paris is pretty pricey, but before this we had a hotel room in the Latin Quarter which was only slightly more than the cost for 2 people in a 12 bed dorm. The price itself was pretty standard for a hostel in Paris though so I think it depends on what you are looking for.
The bathrooms were pretty standard and I remember them being pretty clean.
Overall we had a pretty good experience at this hostel. The bar was definitely a highlight. The downside was the location and distance from the centre of Paris. As I previously said, we were only here for a night, so it may not be a clear indication of the hostel. The only reason we stayed here was due to a tour picking us a from this location. Although our experience was pretty good we probably would not stay here again mostly due to the location.
