Welcome to 3 ducks Hostel!

The 3 ducks hostel is housed in a former 18th century coaching inn considered to be a historical monument and is protected by Les Batiments de France as such. Founded in 1987, the 3 ducks is the oldest private hostel in France. These almost 30 years serving millions of travellers around the world have earned the 3 ducks its international reputation for its lively and friendly atmosphere.

    Loved my stay at the 3Ducks. Facilities are nice/modern. The layout is cool with a bar right when you enter and a courtyard to sit outside. Very close to metro stop. Pretty close to Eiffel Tower. Cool neighborhood. But what sets this hostel apart from others is its friendly staff. 3Ducks integrates staff, guests, locals at the bar and staff treat us not only as guests but as friends, which is so awesome. Met some very cool, not to mention beautiful, people there. Would for sure stay there again.

    Stayed for two nights 20-21st of February 2015. We stayed in a room for 6 with three bunk beds and a shared bathroom. Room was clean and had all amenities we needed: there was a safe in the room and you could rent towels for 2 euros from reception. Location was great and lots of nice cafes, restaurants and bars around. Only a short distance from the Eiffel Tower (20 min walking or 5 min in taxi) Would stay again if in Paris. Lovely breakfast served in the morning as well.

    Gostei muito do hostel. Os quartos são bom e bem arrumados. Os banheiros são bem limpos. A localização é excelente na Rue de Commerce, a cinquenta metros do metrô. O staff é excelente, todos muito bem preparados para fornecer os melhores roteiros turísticos, além de que o staff é muito amigável. Um ótimo lugar para interagir, pertinho da Torre Eiffel.
