This is not a walkable hostel to any of the sites. Location is decent, breakfast included is always good. I do notice that there are people coming off the street to enjoy a free breakie as well. Wifi is weak in areas of the hostel. Really loud at night as there is a club downstairs, they get really rowdy. Make...

Hello, Thank you so much for writing a review for us, we always love hearing feedback from our guests as it's what helps us continually develop our services to our guests.

Overall the hostel itself was no problem. The room was clean with a sink and a community bathroom. A basic breakfast was provided. You can take a short walk (5 -10 min) to the metro to get to the major sites. This was our first time in Paris so we wanted to see the major attractions, so overall the location...

Rooms get warmer than 30°C and so clammy it's impossible to sleep in. We were 10 people in the room, everyone having problems with it and most of the other people I talked to. After two gruesome nights I just couldn't go to sleep on my third. Asked if there was anything reception could do. NO! No help finding other...

I recently stayed at St. Christopher's Inn and my experience of Paris was ruined by the location of this hostel. It isn't located in a very nice part of town and you have to take about a 30 minute metro to get to the central part of Paris. I didn't feel safe even walking to the metro. The hostel itself...

This hostel is one of the best st. Christophers that I've stayed in. There're six floors so you can meet a lot of people. The rooms and the bathroom are all very clean.

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.
