I stayed in this hostel recently with a group of 7 friends. We had booked an 8 bed female dorm room online on their website and had brought the email confirmation with us. Upon arrival the man behind the desk on the particular afternoon was not very welcoming. He proceeded to tell us that they were booked up and we... More

I loved this place! The free breakfast is huge, the building is gorgeous, and it's in a fantastic location. Yes, the facilities are super basic, but if you're only planning to sleep and eat breakfast at the hostel, this is your best option. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I'd definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 4 nights, all the staff are helpful and friendly. The rooms are horrible, old, and not clean! I have no problem with staying in a basic hostel, but this was dirty. The beds are made with only sheets, and then a wool blanket which is not washed in between guests. Also there is no ladder up... More

I initially booked into a location that turned out to be a filthy room in a bad location. The next morning I went online and found the BVJ-Louvre hostel and booked my reservation. What a delight. The facility is very well located, walking distance to le Louvre, Tuileries, l'Opera, Notre Dame, the Champs Elysees and the Eiffel tower. Also just... More

The hostel provide you acceptable things for your basic needs. But the staff in the kitchen were not so helpful. One of them ignored when my friend asking for hot water for her tea, another one was complaining in her mother language when she wanted to take a tray from the guests even though we had not finish our meal....

We arrived and realised we had booked the wrong dates, but Lucas the receptionist did his best to help us out which was really kind and we stayed for 3 nights. The hostel is right in the middle of everything in Paris, we walked to most places and often had a picnic on the Seine river!

It's a good hostel. Always has someone on reception. Don't use if you don't like stairs. Beds are comfy and close to the center of Paris. Sadly had to check our early so missed the free breakfast. Would stay there again

The location is just perfect, only 5 min walking to the Louvre Museum. There are a lot of rests and cafes near to the hostel. The street is safe and there is always someone so you can always walk even its midnight. There is a reception 7-24, and it always asks your room card while you re entering. Breakfast is... More

Place is perfectly located to see the sites in Paris: it's a two minute walk from the Louvre and just as close to the metro stop. Make no mistakes, it's very bare-bones and you'll have to be comfortable sharing your room with lots of strangers at once (and all the implications this has for hygiene, etc.). That being said, the... More
