St Christopher’s Paris Canal

Waterfront views of the city’s most famous canal while you eat your morning croissant? Sounds picture perfect to us.

Our multi-award winning St Christopher’s Canal hostel is located just 3 stops from Gare Du Nord station, overlooking the picturesque Canal St Martin. With 5 metro stations on our doorstep, we offer fantastic travel connections to the rest of Paris. And we’re just a 20 minute bike ride from The Louvre and Montmartre (home to the Sacre Coeur).

Offering a large waterfront terrace, we’re located in the perfect spot to wind down after a long day. Or better yet, to re-fuel for the evening, since the hostel throws epic parties in its very own Belushi’s bar. Our rooms are modern with comfy POD beds fitted with USB ports, plug sockets and privacy curtains.

The Canal hostel is where travellers come together to make friends, explore the city, drink and rest their heads.

Voted Hostelworld’s ‘Most Popular Hostel in Paris’ 2014, 2013 and 2012.
