Liked: The location can hands down not be beaten.. It really is beautiful to have the Lourve right in your backyard.

Disliked: Had multiple issues with security that resulted in feeling unsafe which was less than ideal for a first time solo traveller. The staff check you in and that seems to be where their duties cease.

Liked: Great location!! Breakfast is included and it's very good. They have nice and clean beds, and showers with hot water. The price is awesome.

Disliked: The staff isn't very friendly or helpful. Some toilets didn't have paper and there wasn't any hand soap or clean hand towels. They don't have free WiFi. Only one key per room.

Liked: Incredible location! Right next to the Louvre and walking distance to Notre Dame, the lock bridge (pont de arts) the Latin Quarter, and much more! The breakfast is very decent and is a full meal instead of just a coffee and some cereal, the rooms were very specious (with a great view too) and the staff members were very helpful!!

Disliked: They advertise about having free wifi but this is not the case, there is free wifi but you literally have to go stand on the corner outside and use the cafe's wifi. There were also no lockers in the room. That being said, it was a very safe environment and I didn't not feel as if my bags would have been stolen anyways. Still a great place to stay, the location can't be beat!

Liked: It is very warm snd friendly. Hostel has great character and is quite comfortabe. Breakfast is excelent as well.

Disliked: The showers could be a little cleaner, but all in all they are pretty decent and should not pose a problem for anxone who has ever camped. Security is not that good, but there are steel safety lockers big enough for cabin sized baggage (they charge 2 euros every time you open them, so be sure you have everything when you close them). There is no elevator.

Liked: Clean, excellent location for me by the Lourve. Beds were comfortable. Showers were fine except for the small space afforded.

Disliked: No lockers so personal belongings were kept with me all the time. The hostel didn't have any character as well. No space to mingle with other travellers apart from the dorms itself.

Liked: The location is perfect and the bed is clean. I paid 20 euros per night, breakfast included, the breakfast is good enough.

Disliked: There is only one key per room, which means the door is never locked. And the luggage room is free access without any security. The shower room is tiny in 1st floor but okay, however, the shower room on 4th floor is very bad. You can never take a comfortable shower with a shower head like that.

Liked: AMAZING location! Free breakfast every morning was great - lots of variety and good quality. Staff were always happy and willing to help

Disliked: the showers were terrible! You had to hold your hand on the button for the entire time whilst showering. my room was also six flights of stairs up, right in an attic, and the WIFi was only available in the lobby. Also, there are basically no lockers available. The ones there cost 2 euros per use and are fairly dodgy and hard to use, not to mention that they hardly fit a day backpack in.

Liked: The location is the best, 4 min of walk next to Louvre, and 2 min walk to a large connection point for metros and rer - Chatelet, which makes it perfect for commuting within Paris.

Disliked: well, i am not sure, but on the website of hostelbookers, it was not written that the bathroom and the toilet are not in the room, but r outside and common for the wing of rooms. Also, the sink was in the room, instead of being in the bathroom. I disliked the organization. As regards the breakfast, I was totally dissapointed. The v ariety of what to choose to eat is soo little. On top of this, i think I was robbed (connection, charging cables) also in the hostel, when I left my backpack in the luggage room, without supervision, before checking in :( THere were no video recordings.

Liked: Location was very good. Free breakfast was nice.

Disliked: I'm pretty sure the staff at t his hostel go out of their way to make your stay unpleasant. Not very secure--there was only one key for a 10-person room, so the door was left unlocked pretty much all the time. No laundry facilities or kitchen. NO FREE WIFI. No sink in bathroom and sometimes no toilet paper... yuck. Cold showers that turn off automatically every 30 seconds.

Liked: On a European “globe-trotting” tour, I spent one night in Paris. The short period necessitated a great location. Beyond expectations, BVJ Louvre excelled in this. Within two-three block’s distance (i.e. max three minutes’ walk) the following eminent highlights surrounded the hostel, clockwise: Ministry of Culture, Comedie Francaise (where according to urban legend Moliere died on stage), Palais Royale (where the French Revolution broke out), the Bank of France, Bourse de Commerce de Paris (commodities exchange), Chatelet Les Halles (the largest underground station in the world), Rivoli (with heaps of shops, bars and restaurants) and the Louvre (which is awesome both inside and outside). The great location allowed seeing numerous attractions in a time-efficient way and when exhausted from all-day sightseeing and a few pints, I was awaited by a basic but clean room to complete a terrific day.

Disliked: Gabor left no negative feedback.
