This is a no frills hostel but is perfect for a short stay in Paris. Great location, very clean and a great place to stay if you just need somewhere to rest your head. Great value for money, I was pleasantly surprised!

It was overpriced for what you got and you have to share a room key with 7 other people. You do not have a secure bagging area. Hot room and hot shower on a hot day. No kitchen or free wifi. Rude staff and basic breakfast but do not take a yogurt for later as you will get yell at by staff. At 35 euro for a Monday night you really are only paying for a bed near the lourve and not even a secure one at that. I read other comments and soap for washing your hands after going to the toilet is extra.

Lockers can't fit a bag bigger than a backpack. Breakfast was so so. Just not the best hostel I've seen. It was blazing hot and just pretty loud there. Stayed multiple days. Crazy amount of noise. Confused by the key system, but no deposit. Not a lot of electrical plugs in the room.

The staff was kind and willing to help. For the price, it was not worth it in my case. I was assigned to the top floor and I was the odd man out with a huge group of young girls. I was last in so I was supposed to sleep in a bed in the tower and had to climb a steep ladder to, where it was at least 10 degrees hotter, one small window on the other side of the room. I made friends with girls on the floor below and slept there instead. This room should cost way less.

Thanks for the KIND STAFF.... but please read what you rent : the cheapest bed... in the 1st, the oldest & the best located hostel of PARIS... with 5 floors, NO LIFT but a great view on the parisian roof & the Modern Art Museum... Regards, The LOUVRE YOUTH HOSTEL !

This was by far the worst/overpriced hostel I stayed at during my Europe holiday, the toilet/shower was disgusting and beds wafer thin. The location wasn't even that great as it took 5 minutes to climb the 5 flights of stairs and a ladder (like an actual ladder not a bunk bed ladder) to get to my bed. Save your money and stay somewhere else.

Bathrooms are all shared, and none have hand soap. Absolutely disgusting. Showers were cold. Only one key per room, regardless of how many beds. Breakfast was very mediocre. Staff was rude to us. No elevator. The only thing good (actually) great about this place is the location. But it doesn't justify the shortcomings at all. I'll never go back.

Great location and comfortable beds. A shame that the wifi costs, as one of the most expensive hostels I stayed in around Europe you'd expect to get that for free. Good basic hostel and you get exactly what you need. Great breakfast too.

Nice location. Basic facilities, worth the money. Clean room and blanket. If you are carrying a lot of luggage should think about it because there's no lift.

I never write reviews, but this time I have to. This is the worst hostel I've ever stay in my life!! The only good thing is the location, everything else sucks!!! No free wifi, you have to pay €5 and it only works at the lobby. Rooms are extremely small, to the point that when I needed to go from my bed to the door, the other guests had to sit on their beds cause there wasn't enough space. The room has nothing at all, no shelves, no hooks, nothing!! no kitchen, no fridge, showers are awful!

You for exactly what was advertised, clean rooms, the breakfast is decent and the staff are commendable there's 3 I noticed that work on the front desk in shifts and they're all so so helpful. This isn't the type of hostel you can meet people and socialise but ta a bed for the night at a price much cheaper than everywhere else in Paris. It is very close to the louvre as it states too so very well located.

I LOVED it here! The people working behind the desk are extremely nice and professional. Security is fantastic: they give you individual cards you must present every time to come into the hostel and they have FREE breakfast every morning (with a huge cup of coffee!). The rooms were extremely clean and overall very quiet. The community room downstairs is adorable, and frequently see people chatting with each other. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING LOCATION, literally a 5-10 minute walk to the Louvre!

I loved my staying in France overall and this Louvre Hostel had the perfect value for the location and the receptionist was a very friendly guy (Sorry cannot remember his name). When I get back to France next time, definitely I'll book with Louvre Youth Hostel. I liked very much there. Greetings from the U.S.A.
