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

My only piece of advice would be to pay a bit extra for a smaller dorm or you will be on the 5th floor with 8 of you in 1 cramped room. It has all your basics and is extremely central. If you are smart you can literally walk everywhere from your hostel. However, the constant noise meant I only... More

This was the worst hostel I stayed in, the boys at the reception were really rude and of no help... The rooms were huge but only single charging plug, which didn't work when confronted for help, the only reply I kept getting was to charge things in the lobby. They also made me change dorms 3 times. If it wasn't... More

We found BVJ through hostelworld and saw from previous reviews that it was a safe and basic hostel in Central Paris which was exactly what we were looking for on our interrailing trip. It was one stop on the metro from Paris Nord, and the location was PERFECT - opposite the louboutin shop and 2 minutes from the Louvre museum.... More

I was a little wary of how this hostel would be having never stayed in one before but this exceeded expectations! There was just two of us travelling and we had booked a room of 8, however when we arrived we were moved into a room of four. The hotel lobby is lovely and clean and has a really pretty... More

It is a cheap option for the location. The location is two minutes walk to the Louvre and really close to the subway station Louvre - Rivoli. The 24 hours reception is a great deal as well. All receptionists were really friendly and helpful, especially Lucas.

This was the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff were incredibly rude and unwelcoming. They acted as if the did not want us there and made guests upset with their language and behaviour. Additionally, the facilities were appalling and would strongly discourage anyone from staying here. When asked for help the managers were no help and were... More

This was the first place I stayed in Paris so I chose a place that seemed very accessible to all the museums and tourist attractions at the best price, and it delivers on both of these fronts. I had a pretty big room shared with two other people (St. Christophers had alot more backpackers or people staying there in general--... More

I only stayed in this horrid place for one night. I was shivering as there was only one blanket provided, which had the hair of at least 2 previous guests still on it. The toilets ran out of toilet roll and I was told I just had to wait as no one could replenish it as they were serving breakfast.... More

Literally a two minute walk to the Louvre, the location was perfect, I found the whole hostel to be quite clean, beds were practical and the breakfast was free, if you are after no frills budget accommodation then I would reccomend this place to you, otherwise you might want to think twice. Thank you for a great stay Remi and... More
