Located a bit away from the center of Paris. I walked all the way downtown, some of the areas on the way are a bit dicey (especially late at night). Very close to the metro lines and not far from Gare du Nord. The price is good for Paris. Rooms were nice, the computer lounge area is very active. Rooms...

Loved it: good ratio quality/price, friendly staff, great atmosphere, nice food, everything was kept clean and respectful. I got injured during my visit in Paris and they helped me at all times and even gave me a free drink. Totally coming back there!

This is a good hostel. It was decently priced. The beds and bathrooms are clean. The breakfast included with the hostel was very delicious. It had a bar downstairs that was fun to go to as well. Average location--the metro was needed to go places, but it wasn't a big deal. Good hostel.

We stayed here recently as a group of four and LOVED it! The staff were incredibly nice, the beds were very comfortable, the place was very clean and it was a decent sized apartment for six adults and luggage, the entrance always smelled wonderful!

Stayed here with a buddy in a double room, compared to some other Paris hostels the beds weren't awful. However, US two guys got shoved into a women's only hall and were only allowed to use a handicap bathroom, which had a funky smell and was often covered with long black hairs, the bathroom also had no shower curtain and...

We were a class of 9 travelling to Paris, and St Christopher Inn were a perfect place. It's really perfect for young students with a lot of social games and things to do in the evening. Also it's close to the metro, so it's easy to see Paris. We also used Parc de buttes-chaumont that is about a five minute...

The St Christopher's Canal Paris hostel is located about 7 mins. walk from Laumiere metro station (zone 1). The area is so-and-so, a bit of a poorer part of Paris and not necessarily with the most interesting sights around, however, it feels safe enough. I can imagine though that a single young female traveller might not feel too safe walking...

Staying in La Villette

Neighbourhood Profile
La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to the futuristic space. Though on the outskirts of Paris, La Villette is worth the short Metro ride from the centre.
