The Auberge Internationale des Jeunes hostel is in Paris's super-cool Bastille district, and is a hot spot for young travellers (18-30) to hang out. Tell tales of your nights on the town over a free breakfast, or sleep in until our 11am cleaning time. You can hang out in the common room with your new travel buddies and grab a snack from the vending machines.


Our hostel's in the 11th arrondissement, a 10-minute walk from the Place de la Bastille (a huge historical square full of eateries and an opera house) and less than 15 minutes from the Gare de Lyon train station. The Bastille neighbourhood is full of cool cocktail bars and chic restaurants. Our nearest Métro station is Ledru Rollin, where you can hop on line 8. If you're flying in, it takes about an hour to get to us from Charles de Gaulle and Orly, or just under 2 hours from Beauvais–Tillé.

Rooms and Dorms

You'll be able to choose from a shared or private room for bunking down. The larger ones have en-suite showers and toilets, and there are bathrooms on each floor for everyone else to use. If you want space for yourself and your partner or friends, you can book into a private room. No sleeping bag? No problem. Bed linen is provided, and towels can be rented for 3 euros.

Extras and activities

With our 24-hour front desk and no curfew, there's no time limit for making the most of Bastille's buzzing nightlife. And when you're out in the daytime, we clean the rooms daily between 11am and 3:30pm. We've got a microwave if you fancy a quick lunch, and there are four supermarkets a short stroll away. There's also free Wi-Fi in the rooms 24/7 and the lobby from 1pm until midnight, so you can post your best Eiffel Tower selfies!

    Great location, great if you’re with mates for a short time. Perfect for a basic hostel. Well connected on the metro, very friendly staff. Free breakfast was a GEM. Showers didn’t really work well but everything else was fine

    No hand soap or towels/hand dryers in the bathrooms which in similarly priced hostels their usually are. Only one of the 4 safes in the room worked. And the age limit of 35 years, which is advertised on the website was not adhered to. In fact there were a lot of people 50+. In my experience older people snore louder, are less considerate, and more difficult to make friends with. Which is why when a hostel advertises itself as being for youth I expected it to stand by that.

    Very Good

    We stayed in a three bed room on the top floor. It was good as it was spacious and clean in the room. But in the shared toilet there’s no soap and no soap in the room sinks. The walls are very thin so you can hear the shower from 4 doors down and the lockout from 11-3 was a bit annoying. However the location of it really does make a difference. It’s not in a touristy spot so prices are low and the people are nice.

    Not flash or fancy, but it's a decent base for any traveller. Does the job (although breakfast gets a bit repetitive) and perfectly reasonable price wise.

    The shabbiest hostel I’ve ever seen. You can tell that the owner don’t want to put an extra penny into it. I was in a two bed mix dorm. Big room with nothing. No chair nor table. Lights very dim. Only two sockets on the top of the shelf (I can’t even reach it, and since there’s no chair...) Shared shower (very dark) with no hooks, you have to put your clothes and tower on the shelf IN the shower. No access to your room from 10am to 3pm. No soundproof. Unpleasant staff.

    The word I would use to describe my stay here was uncomfortable. I originally liked this hostel because of the age requirement, 18 to 30 only. This is completely not true. There were little kids screaming at all hours, running around. And a lot of older people. It was loud constantly. On top of that discomfort, the rooms are dingy and gross. The four hours they kick you out of your room, it’s impossible to tell you what they actually do. The staff is not very friendly. I wish I had not stayed.
