Bvj Paris Louvre
Ranked #53 of 190 Specialty Lodging in Paris
Reviewed January 2, 2013

So well located, a few meters from Louvre Museum, just in front of Christian Louboutin main Shoe Shop... and Claus an amazing breakfast corner if you expect a late breakfast... Just ask for white chocolate it's so great...
The Hostel is open 24H non stop wich is very good...
The staff is good and helpfull, they give free maps and they've got so many spots to recommand... You should try the street art tour... an other way of visiting the city !
Rooms are simple, clean and basic rooms, just the necessary... showers are still on the floor but functionnal...
And breakfast is very good for a Youth Hostel...
What esle can you expect from a Youth Hostel...

Room Tip: Ask for Suite des 2 empereurs it was just renovated !!!

The staff was nice enough but that is the only thing going for this hostel- wifi is charged by the hour, and the hallways are long and unlit at night. Make sure to bring your own towel and soap. And prepare to put the sheets on your bed and take them off.

The location was excellent and the people were very nice. It reallt cuts your transit expenses.. Lockers in the luggage room fit my knapsack which was great for when I left. The wifi is not free but there are cafes and Starbucks just a walk away were you can get it for free. Some people could not get the wifi to work on their devices and I was one of them.
One key is shared but it never leaves the hostel so you dont have to worry about losing the key.
Be warned that these people sometimes overbook and when they do they send you to their other hostels located farther from the city center. These llocations are not worth the same amount as this one is but they all charge the same. So be warned you may be moved to a different location bvj hostel.

After a near disaster of the staff giving away our reservation (after we had made them aware of the time of our arrival), our stay was decent. The rooms were clean and had nice windows. The place felt safe and the location was great. It's right across the street from the Louboutin store!

Remebering this is not a hotel and that it is only 35€ per night (nothing in Paris under 98-100€), this is by far the cheapest accomodation you will find. It is friendly and i was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness. It felt safe and staff helpful. (i am a woman traveling alone) But it can be noisy which is amplified by the very echoing of the building and inside courtyard. Bring earplugs!!! It is only for people under 35 years old. Its right in the heart of Paris by the Louvres and walking distance to Notre-Dame which is awesome.

Inexpensive, clean, on a quiet little street, the location is just perfect! minute walk to the Louvre, five minutes to the Seine, 2 minutes to the metro. BOOK less than one day prior to arrival - no problem. Furniture in the rooms of a bed and a chair - the cabinet is not enough of course. in general, only a positive impression! never regretted that stopped it. staff assisted in every way and answered all the questions. thank you ))

This hostel had potential with its location and the fact it was an economic option, but there were some attributes I was not ready for. First, the location is decent, and the price is right. Paris is pricey, and this was a good option if you're on a budget. I found the woman at the desk witty and helpful. French breakfasts are simple, and breakfast was filling if you went back for more. The breakfast staff spoke no English, but that's part of the charm.

I stayed here two nights, and the second night was fraught with noisy school groups. They shouted out windows and ran through the halls until after midnight. If you're looking for an early turn-in, this could spell trouble. Not sure why there aren't guidelines for groups, especially school groups...or why they aren't enforced. The internet was expensive; therefore, I didn't purchase it. The common space was, well, common. Nothing fancy or inviting about it. I wish they could put a door on the storage room for better protection of bags. The rooms were unclean, but the beds were fine.

Bottom line, this is an inexpensive place to rest your head, but there isn't much else about it I would recommend.
