I had a reservation for one night, arrived in the evening, no problems at check-in. I feared the 10-bed dorm could be noisy, but we were only 5 guys that night (friday) in this dorm, so it was not very crowded. Rooms are basic with bunk beds, but were quite clean, including a basin. Toilets and showers are outside the... More

It had the basic needs. The bathroom wasn't the cleanest and the shower didn't drain well, at all! So I would turn the water on for just a bit so I wouldn't have the dirty waters receding on my shower shoes. Again... Basic needs. Great location.

Bit pricey compared to usual hostel prices (stayed in mid October) but not so much for Paris. Lack of the usual social area and staff can be somewhat distracted (usually because there's only one of them on). However rooms and bathrooms were clean and tidy (no towel) and breakfast was very nice continental affair. No free WiFi. Not a bad... More

Checked-in for 4 days knowing I was sacrificing the social side of other hostels for the location BVJ Louvre offered. My expectations were very low, all I was after was clean sheets, a hot shower & someplace quiet to sleep. The showers were cold & sprayed every direction except at you & ensured there was nowhere dry to hang your... More

The staff a nice, but they need about two more working at all times, the wait is like 20 mins everytime just to speak to someone. Very very basic. Clean mostly but there are way better hostels to stay.

Great location, about 10mins from the Louvre. Have to pay for wifi and showers are look like they're from a prison, but functional. If you stay on the street side there is a lot of noise late at night and early in the morning.

Don't try booking here as a family. Even though I double checked whether they could garantee a private room for a family and the answer was yes, when we arrived they had relocated us to the BVJ Opera where no private room was reserved for us and only by the good grace of the manager we were "allowed" to sleep...

You get what you pay for. The location is great, the breakfast is okay, and the staff is very friendly. All of the children definitely get annoying and the showers were dreadful. I wouldn't recommend a long stay here, but if you just need a place for a few nights, this isn't a bad choice.

Ok so all I can say about this hostel is it is a great location! That's about it... The atmosphere is poor, there's constantly children staying here, breakfast is not great, terrible value and staff are not friendly at all or helpful. A girl stole my travel wallet, passport, iPad Etc from my room when I went to the toilet... More
