Extremly well located, near mayor city landmarks. I would just tell them to make a key of the room for each guest as it is now a 1 key per bedroom which isnt very safe, although i didnt have any problems because i was in a two person room and the other bed was empty

This was my first trip abroad and as a young traveler I was worried about safety and location. The location was absolutely amazing and I never felt unsafe once here. located just minutes away from the louvre and close to metro routes. Just as you would expect from a hostel it was not "luxurious" by any means but the service... More

It is really well located. Staff is kind, attentious, helpfull. The breakfast came in a good amount. Bjv paris hostel is near the louvre, siene river, pompedou museum etc...It would be even better if there were toilet paper, however, it was clean and there were employees taking care. The room was a loft. It looked alternative. Nice work! Have a... More

Definitely, this hotel has the best location in Paris, a few blocks from the Louvre. The service of the staff is also excellent. It's a bit old and the Internet is paid out, but the location makes up for everything.

Very central, open 24 hrs, easy check-in procedure. I had no problem finding it at night, and the staff was very friendly. Internet was not included in the price, and my purchased internet only worked in the lobby.

This nice hostel is really well located, a few blocks from Rue du Louvre. Bedrooms are clean, people is friendly and you can leave your luggage at reception once you check out. The wifi service is free but only in the common area at the first floor.

The staff was kind but waking up with bites all over my side and arm was the worst. I itched all the time and hated going back to this hostel every evening. Also the showers were gross and should have been cleaned but WERENT in the 8 days I stayed there. I don't recommend this place.

It is indeed bare-bones, but we are used to it. We have retreats in preparations for each year in similar, rustic accommodations. We travel as an ensemble (choir) mulptile times, each year, both in the US and abroad. We were in Paris recording the Durufle Requiem, in Durufle's home church. Within the first night students began being bitten by bed... More

My bed and the bed of 10 other friends in different rooms all had bed bugs! My friend who slept in the bunk below me had bug bites all over his back. I had a lot too. Very uncomfortable. There was a lot of street noise and noise from party goers at night. Breakfast was fine, though.
