St, Christophers passes the essential hostel requirements. It's clean, safe, provides free lockers, and decent showers. Aside from that, the beds are comfortable and the staff is very helpful. The price is decent, the only setback is that the location is a little out of the way but I would DEFINITELY stay there again.

Stayed with 2 friend in a 6 bed dorm. The room itself was excellent, super clean and very nicely decorated for a Hostel. We could only access the floor we were on (with the room key) either using the elevator or stairs so we felt quite safe. The hostel is in a short distance from 2 different metro stations which...

My boyfriend and I (both 25 y.o. Backpackers) enjoyed our stay at St. Christopher's Canal. The access to the city was great as the metro stop was only about 1 block away, and we found the metro's really easy to get around. The breakfast and evenings in Belishi's were also great. A few cons: - everyone else seemed to have...

The hostel was very nice, I stayed there with a big group of people in a dorm but since we were on an organized trip it wasn't a problem. Metro was a 5 minutes walk from the hostel but the area itself was beautiful, especially near the river. Apparently it wasn't the safest one but it also wasn't dangerous, especially...

We booked a ten bed dorm for a friends trip to Paris.

One of my favorite hostels, gorgeous location on the canal! Kicked my feet up and drank wine with a beautiful view of the canal, when in Paris... The rooms were clean, drinks were reasonably priced and discounted and the staff made my stay memorable. Big thanks to Joan who was extremely tentative and always smiling, the man deserves a raise....

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.
