First of all the location is fantastic. you can find the tourist attractions walking 2 or 3 minutes, and if you don't have problems with your legs you can walk more to see the " Tour Eiffel" and " Louvre Museum". The breakfast is simple but nice, and the room was cleaned and organized. The worst to me was the staff: especially the young boy receptionist, he was very impolite and rude. He avoided eye contact with me all the time. he shouldn't be working in that position.

Beautiful hostel with an amazing interior courtyard. The staff was nice and helpful! The bathrooms and the rooms and very clean. The breakfast was AMAZING! The only negative point is that it doesn't seem to be a party hostel, but I must say that I only stayed there for one night.

No kitchen, if you want then €1. No cheap restaurant nearby, you have to walk a bit. Due to many people using the internet, sometimes you cannot get the IP, and you have to set static IP.

PERFECT VALUE... VERY GOOD SECURITY, STAFF& CLEANLINESS... as informed on the micro web site, as confirmed 2 times by mail : NO PUBLIC KITCHEN ACCESS.... the first cheap pizza restaurant + one sushi restaurant just in front of the hostel... and at the end of the street severals small cheap french restaurants : JUST OPEN YOUR EYES, READ WHAT YOU RENT or ASK US !

Definitely for a crowd under 18 years of ages. Felt a bit like a boarding house. No lockers for valuables, one key for the WHOLE room. Showers had some serious flooding. Pretty nice common area though. Breakfast ended around 8 or 9am and then they kick everyone out of the common area to clean.

Very Good! It is clean (WC, showers, bed linen) and looks fresh renovated - the building is historical. They offer a very good breakfast, which includes flakes, fruits, sandwiches (you make your own), yogurt, cakes. If you come before check-in you are allowed to put your bags in a luggage room.Unfortunately no WiFi in the rooms, but it is fast enough in the lobby and corridors.Location - in the city center, district 8, close to the Metro. I am very pleased and I will definitely recommend it.

BVJ Hostel is amazing! The location is unbeatable and the building itself is beautiful! The staff, Adel, Khelaf, Laetitia and all the others are friendly and helpful. They all work hard to make sure that everyone enjoy a nice stay. I booked 3 nights in the beginning and ended up staying for 10. Will definitely return here when I visit Paris next time. My Thanks to BVJ for their hospitality!

This place is incredibly beautiful and in a phenomenal position. Staff were kind but not above average. No lockers but personally felt safe leaving my bag in my room. There's a locked room for luggage if you prefer. Breakfast was basic but free so can't complain! Wifi only in common area but that didn't seem to help with the social aspect as everybody just had their nose in their phone or laptop. Would stay again.

The hostel is in a great location - convenient to the metro and a short walk to the Champs Élysées. Fantastic breakfast and common area! The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean, but the one key per room system is a little strange. The security was great because yo hhabe to show a resident card to get in to the hostel.

I loved staying here! My room was big and airy with lots of natural light and there was more than enough space for the number of people staying in the room. The staff was friendly and helpful and the courtyard and dining area were really clean and well maintained. There was secure storage for my luggage and overall the place was very homey feeling. As a first timer in Paris (and France) this place seemed to really have a lot of local culture built in without trying too hard. I'd stay here again.

2 outlets in a room of eights! I really don't what they think people are supposed to charge their phones and stuff. The outlets were right next to the door so that anyone who opens the door sees your phone charging and nothing stops him from putting it in his pocket. (They only have one key per room so if someone is inside he leaves the door unlocked). The main room also only had 3 or 4 outlets. everyone was waiting to charge their stuff. I wonder how much is costs to get some extension cords.

The place is true to what they say, just a quiet hostel. But it's clean, in a beautiful place and you run into people who are like minded. There is no ac but it's worth it for the location and to be in the space. You feel like your in a French home. It rained one morning and was just a treat to be able to sit and watch the rain pour in the courtyard. They were helpful with recommendations and the morning breakfast was great.

As soon as we got there, we loved the layout of the hostel. However, when checking-in, the afternoon/evening staff were working not so great. I did not feel welcomed at all, they were very rude! the morning staff was the total opposite very friendly and accommodating. The food simple: toast, cereal, and coffee. The rooms were spacious. The atmosphere could have been better, but with all the restrictions not so much. Other than that, it was in a good location but far from airports =Taxi €30-50

THANKS for the GOOD LOCATION... FRIENDLY & ACCOMODATING STAFF.... GOOD FREE EARLY FRENCH BREAKFAST... SPACIOUS ROOMS... but for sure all our crew can't feat with every body & we've got a minimum of rules of respect... to be able survive in a youth community !

Disinterest staff. Our 'private room' had a joining door to another room that was not lockable and people kept walking into our room. Toilets weren't very clean and showers didn't have any place to put your clothing or towel. Simple suction hooks weren't strong enough to hold my towel. Yes, they advertise BVJ as a simple hostel with 'just the basics',but you'd expect the basics to be perfect for the money you're paying.
