Remind:

even if we’ve got one of the best location, in the real city centre, just a few meters closed to the Louvre museum and the king royal palace garden, the louvre youth property is still a simple and basic place intended for students, teachers, and youth travellers, where you will find just the necessary. For a the service of a 5 stars palace, the silence of a church, or a romantic honey-moon… honestly, you make the wrong choice. You should find an other address!!!!

    Pros: The staff were really friendly and polite. The breakfast was great. The beds were comfortable. The location was the best thing about the hostel. It was a 5-10 minute walk to the Louvre and in a very safe location. Cons: Despite being comfortable, the beds were small. They said they had lockers which they did, in the lobby and there were only a few, 4 of which were broken. No lift and I was on the fifth floor. On the night before check out 180 school kids were staying there and were loud
