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: It is really well located and the breakfast is very good!

Disliked: no free wiffi, only one toilet and two showers per floor, only one key per room (so the doors has to be unlocked most of the time), no elevators...

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.

Liked: Accurately description in info, very good value basic accom right (RIGHT!) in the centre, you could almost fall out the front door onto the louvre. Staff was friendly, free breakfast, clean etc.

Disliked: They advertise that the wifi isn't free so I shouldn't realllly complain about this but... it is pretty cheap however, 2 euros for 3 hours, or 3 euros for 2 hours... Beware, people will complain endlessly about having to walk up the stairs, again this was advertised...

Liked: Location

Disliked: Very unclean showers and bathrooms. Weird key system where there's only 1 per room and it must be left at reception. Heaps of kids and school groups there so it's so noisy. Early check out and you have to check out each day and back in again where you are assigned another room. A very expensive hostel for what you get and not worth the money.

Liked: It's so close to many famous attractions in Paris! The breakfast provided was good and the staff there were very helpful.

Disliked: The facility was not good. The shower cubicle flooded every time I showered. Besides there was only one key per room which cause a lot of inconvenience like we can't lock the door when some roommates were still not back in the room yet.

Liked: fairly easy to find, near restaurants, it was a short walk from les halles, giant shopping mart and a skip and a jump from a bunch of metro stops. i didnt exploit this, but it is right next to the Louvre as well.

Disliked: my room was on the tippy top floor. not only that, but the room was lofted and the only space left was at the top. Paris is hot as balls in the summer and i think i almost died from heat and lack of air circulation. Put in a fan you guys! or, better yet, have a window that opens in every room. especially the rooms where there are ten people who sleep in them!

Liked: Good location right next to Le Chatelet, if you like to be connected.

Disliked: The staff used a paper-pencil reservation book for their bookings (in this big a hostel problems Will arise.) Somehow they'd managed to move my reservation to the night before and the receptionist tried to blame me for the mistake. Luckily I had the original reservation documents with me so I managed to get my room. I arrived late, before me some girls were not so lucky, a half of their 2-night booking had been changed to another place somewhere else in town. Apparently it's a normal practice there. Rooms and toilets are military style basic, the place is popular among drunken teenagers and there is no insulation on the walls. You do the math. Good for adventurous 18-year-olds, for the rest is steering clear warmly recommended.

Liked: The beds were so comfortable! The street outside was quiet. Overall just a great hostel!

Disliked: The showers left a little to be desired and the toilets were a strange kind without a seat. Internet only being available on the ground floor was a drag but not too bad.
