We're the first non-profit youth hostel organisation in Paris – so you can have a budget stay in a beautiful district. Based in an 18th-century townhouse (built by explorer Bougainville and gifted by Napoleon to his mistress – there's a story for you!) our hostel is full of authentic French culture. Use the original décor of our lounge as the backdrop to your ‘Bonjour Paris’ selfie before jumping on the free Wi-Fi to post pictures or Skype home.



From our location in the 9th arrondissement, you can catch most must-see sights on foot. Jump on line B of the RER at the airport, get off at Gare du Nord and walk two minutes to Gare de Magenta. From there, take line E to Gare Haussmann–Saint-Lazare and you're just 8 minutes from our door. Check out the local bars of the Pigalle district, a 10-minute walk away, before you head to the Moulin Rouge, 12 minutes down the road. Round off the day by getting a view from the Sacré Cœur, 18 minutes away on foot.

Rooms and Dorms

Choose where you want to snooze – we have mixed or female-only dorms. You’ll find under-bed lockers to keep your backpack and belongings safe (and out of the way). Plus, linen is free, so you can save space in your luggage for souvenirs. Need a towel or travel adaptor? Rent them from reception for a few euros.

Extras and activities

Come and say hi to our multilingual staff at our 24-hour reception! They'll help you navigate the city and give you a free city map so you can get to know the local neighbourhood straight away. Once you’ve done the sightseeing, settle down with a book from the exchange in our café. Or, pull up a seat in our historic courtyard and have a cold beer with friends.

    The hostel was great for staying a short term. I was in a female dorm with more or less 8 other women. We had two connected rooms and the bathroom and showers were on the main floor. My bed and the blankets were enough for a short term stay. The only thing is you can´t lock up your things. However I left my things in the room and nothing was stolen. There were plenty of showers and bathrooms. The good thing was you had a single cabin for you in the shower. The breakfast was also good.

    BVJ Opera-Montmartre has a super great location and the staff was really friendly. The only reservation is that there were no lockers in rooms. Otherwise the lobby and courtyard are extremely beautiful !

    Good place to stay for a weekend trip. No locked areas to put your stuff. The shower rooms didn't have curtains in the room so you have to hang up your clothes on the towel rack because the water covers the entire floor and gets all over the room. Only had bread/pastries, fruit salad, and cereal for breakfast but it was free so it was okay. Overall it was a good place to stay.

    You get good value for what you pay. The breakfast is good, but the staff on the Kitchen could be more friendly.

    This place is really below average - don't expect too much. Although Paris is a very expensive city, I don't think I can justify the money I paid for it - remember, there are tons of other hostels in Paris that offer a much better experience at similar price range. The atmosphere was dead, facilities from the 80s, and staff was not helpful. Again, it's a hostel - so I was expecting budget facilities or budget beds - but what I cannot stand, as a traveller for years, was the budget attitude.

    We were left trapped and scared in our hostel room for 5 hours, if there had been a fire we could of been in serious danger. NOT HAPPY! I have since tried contacting the hostel but I am clearly being ignored!

    If youre looking for somewhere cheap in Paris to stay, this is fine. However, it was not secure at all. There were no lockers or any way to lock your stuff, and in my room there were only 2 charging ports, for a room with 8 bunks. So you had to either leave your phone across the room while you slept or not charge it. I didn’t feel secure leaving my stuff around in this hostel.

    The staff wasn’t helpful and moreover the hostel does not let the guests use kettle for having warm water. Basins just have cold water and showers just has super hot water without any temperature setting. Heating in rooms wasn’t proper
