This is probably the best hostel I've been at. The location is good, the staff is kind and fun. Commom areas are cool and fun, so is the bar. The dormitory is GREAT! Good bed with courtains, you can easily sleep at any time and not bother with outside light peaople walking around. Theres even a power socket inside your...

I stayed in the youth hostel here with my school during our trip to Paris. The beds are large enough to fit me comfortably (I am 6"5') and they are soft enough to provide more than adequate levels of comfort while sleeping. I stayed in a room with 6 other guys and we never felt cramped. It is well located...

Awesome hostel, great staff, great deals, great people! The location is a bit out of the center of the city but the hostel made up for it. The metro is close by so its not so much of an issue. Would recommend to anyone!

If you feel young, like to make friends et spend a loud evening, this is a place for you. If you want to spend a quite night to rest, please do not go. Average customer age is surely under 25, beer is the drink for everyone, but the place very friendly and personal competent.

After having spent a night in St Christopher's in Berlin we had high expectations of the hostel and we were disappointed. Our room was ok, but bathrooms were dirty and disgusting to shower in. Breakfast did not include a lot of the things that Berlin's did. the area was creepy and made us feel insecure. Lockers were more expensive than...

The hostel is easy to get to and the rooms are clean and large but the hostel is miles away from the main attractions (50 minutes to the Eiffel Tower). Additionally the bathrooms are regularly dirty and the day staff, whilst nice and friendly, were very slow and consistently gave wrong and outdated information about Paris. The bar and restaurant...

St Chris's is in a true colorful area of Crimee a vibrant bustling area with muliticultural demograph. It's a skip and a jump from the center and can be reached from Gare du nord one of the main stations by the 54 bus a 10 min ride, I find it easier on the bus with bags rather then the metro...

This is the perfect place if your keen on lots of socialising, interaction and partying. I stayed for two evenings in a 12 bed female dormitory and I was actually impressed. Was my first time staying in a hostel (rather than a hotel) and I was very happy with the room, the cleanness and the privacy you have even in...

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.
