I stayed here on two separate occasions during my one month backpack around Europe. The first time was in a mixed dorm of 5 people. The hostel itself is very clean; although no sheets are included with the price and the price of a dorm for one night is kind of pricey (21.5 euros for one night in a 5 bed dorm), I definitely enjoyed my stay in this hostel.

There are bathrooms in each room with free showers (since most of Paris charge extra for showers, this was definitely a plus in the hostel). The hostel itself has kitchen facilities with cutlery and crockery for guests to use, and so this helped me save on a couple nights' meals The staff are very friendly, and breakfast is included.

The second time was three weeks after my first stay, in a private twin room (for 25 euros per person per night). Once again, there was a bathroom in the room and the room itself was very clean.

Definitely one of the best hostels I've stayed in.

Thanks for the info. I'm thinking of staying here. Do you know if they book up fast in late May? I'm wondering if I should book my complete 4 night stay in advance or just reserve 1 night and hope they can accomodate me if I decide to stay there all 4 nights.

I stayed here 4 nights at the beginning of my trip and 1 at the end. Very clean. Awesome to have own bathroom. One of the girls working there was a total bitch but the others were pretty nice. Didn't meet cool other travelers there but oh well. The location is really nice, there's a view of Sacre Coeur. Overall, I'd recommend it :)

I stayed here while I was in Paris and really liked it. My room opened onto the patio, which was great in the evenings as it has a fabulous view of the Basilique Sacre Coeur. Stayed up late on the patio talking with some cool people I met there. They said that the patio closed at 11 (or midnight, I can't remember) but they didn't enforce that.

Keep in mind that there's a curfew at 2am and a midday lockout from 11-4. This seems to be the norm at most Paris hostels, which makes hitting up the nightlife a bit difficult... First off with the curfew, and then the fact that you have to clear out during the day when you could be sleeping if you came in after curfew!

There are a number with no lockout/curfew, but most of them are pretty nasty from what I've read. I did like the BVJ Louvre: Excellent location in the middle of everything, but the showers are a bit funky; And while the breakfast is excellent, there's no public use of the kitchen facilities, making for a lot of "floor picnics." I hear that in the summer, it's full of high school groups, which may not be too fun.

21.5 euros a night! thats steep compared to my home currency, spend that price for a week, and you can rent a 4 bedroom house here for a week by yourself...gee sus!

I can see myself going broke in paris, guess im not staying there long huh.

I'm planning on staying at this hostel! =)
A few questions...one, is there a limit to how many showers you can take a day?
And also you mentioned you didn't meet any other cool travelers, is it not a very social hostel? Should I look elsewhere for that?

thanks!!
