The hostel lacked anywhere to securely lock up belongings and had no security for getting into the building or even the rooms and most of the time, the doors even to the rooms remain unlocked. That being said, I did not feel unsafe, but would have appreciated some sort of locker or more secure spot to leave my things. The breakfast was nice, and the building itself is very clean and pretty.

Free breakfast, great location! Overpriced, but you'll hardly find anything better in Paris.

The place and the staff is nice. The only bad thing is that only one bathroom for the whole floor is not enough. One more would have been a good thing.

The hostel is part of the experience especially if it's your first time in the city. The hostel is difficult to locate. As a lone traveler, I expected a more comfortable, friendly atmosphere. I did't see any area to lock up my belongings while I was away. The common area felt like study hall- no mingling. I thought it distasteful to ask customers to leave/go outside following breakfast. Facilities clean.

Awesome place, cool building, good location and staff. Only turn-off is lack of secure storage, but never was an issue.

My stay was very good in this place, it was the fiirst time I stay in a place liike that. The staff was very kind, facilities were clean, the valué for money was good for me, and it is 10 minutes walking from Champs ELysses. Maybe luggage security can be improve. In general terms, I recomend this place :)

Thanks for your "VERY GOOD STAY + KIND STAFF + CLEAN FACILITIES + GOOD VALUE" The BVJ CHAMPS ELYSEES HOSTEL P.S. : We well notice the little point, lugage room is already under camera contron but we are working to do better...

A clean and beautiful hostel aesthetically but the vibe is all wrong - there are no places to chill out and chat to people, there is no alcohol to be drunk on premises, the staff are disinterested and even hostile. This isn't the sort of atmosphere you want when backpacking and living in hostels. The price is ridiculous compared to the rest of Europe, but that is to be expected of Paris. All being said however - excellent location and a beautiful building. Free breakfast is always a bonus

The bathroom is not really convenient with the high shower only! It took me 30 mins for checking in since the staff couldn't find my booking, she is quite nice. They charged 1 € for a little bit hot water for my noodles, really disappointed :( the location is good. The linen blanket is dirty :(

Firstly, the positive things, fairly clean and quite quiet and in a beautiful building, that's where the good things end. They had messed up my reservation, so instead of a 10 bed with an ensuite bathroom I got a 12bed with shared, and no question of a refund. There aren't enough toilets or showers, at all, about 20ppl on 2toilets and 3 showers. There is no lockable space for valuables or anything, anywhere in the hostel. The rooms are almost always open with only one key per room.

FAIRLY CLEAN + QUIET + BEAUTIFUL BUILDING... thanks a lot... Please next time find somewhere esle, we don't have the level you are wishing !!! THE BVJ CHAMPS ELYSEES HOSTEL P.S. : as request by hostelworld and us, you are supposed to arrive with the printed confirmation of Hostelworld ; open your eyes on your floor 4 toilets & 5 showers... and about 20 more of each on the other floors ; a lockable room under camera control is at disposall ; one key per room our reality but it works !!!

like the introduction says, it gives u the basics and its true staffs are willing to help and friendly the door knob in my room looks like it is going to fall apart though it is still functional the door bang so hard when people going in or out, woke me up every night location is quite good, 3 minute walk from metro i walk from hostel to arc de triomph twice, i love exploring the city by walking around overall its an okay experience the price justifies i would say

I have been enjoying hostels all over the World for 45 years. I have been to Paris numerous times. It is my practice never to stay at the same place twice; so I know the choices in Paris. This one is at the top for staff, facility, cleanliness and overall experience. Two suggestions: 1) this hostel has average baggage security with no supervision. This can always be improved. 2) hostels should get away from the "youth" reputation. I have met many older, experienced guests, like myself.

Extremely clean and professionally run hostel. Very sweet and helpful young lady working there a few times for us and was great. Good breaky. Short walk to supermarkets, metro, arc du triumphe. Good value for money in an expensive city!

So they say it's a simple hostel, but we really liked it. The price was ony slightly more than much, much worse and dirtier hostels in Paris, surly close to metros/RER, a good walk to l'arc du triumphe, included very good breakfast, and was very very clean. The staff were very polite, friendly and helpful- especially the young lady who was so friendly! Beds were clean, lots of outlets, big common area which if people didn't use cell phones (guilty too) promotes social atmosphere. Very impressed!

The room key system is a bit odd as the last person in the room turns it in before leaving and then the first person back picks it up from the front desk. This wouldn't be an issue but there wasn't any way to lock up my bag while I was out, essentially giving that first person back unlimited access to my belongings. All of my things were fine but it seems like a poor way of doing things. Breakfast was nice and the location is convenient.
