- “ The location is great but be forewarned that an "en-suite bathroom" does not include a toilet, our drains backed up every time we ran the water, there is no enclosure (curtain or door) on the shower in your room-hope you know the person you're staying with well! Front desk seemed to be annoyed by any questions, except one wonderful Asian woman who was super friendly and helpful. Breakfast is pretty basic, don't expect much, and little to nothing healthy. ”

- “ I was actually staying in the BVJ in Opera,the building and the rooms one of the most beautiful i have ever been. Very good location, very clean, expensive as all the hostels in Paris, and the main disadvantage:no free wi-fi.. But overall a great place to stay. ”

“ It's really a bad service for what it could be. The double rooms are rooms with two awful (the mattresses are extremely soft) separated beds. The shower is kind of filthy and the toiled is outside the room and only one per floor...
The only good point of it is really the location. If you're NOT planning a romantic weekend in Paris, then go for it :) If you're looking for a bit of comfort, stay away! ”
As you wrote, we've just got one of the best located YOUTH HOSTEL of Paris, open 24h non stop and reserved for 18 to 35 year old travellers, students and teachers. We are just a few meters from Notre Dame Cathedrall, in the hurt the the "QUARTIER LATIN" the student district... full of bars, restaurants, night-clubs... For sure we don't have any matrimonial beds, and we never pretend to be a romantic matrimonial 5 stars hotel. We are only a simple and basic YOUTH HOSTEL, with rooms for 1 till 10 peolple, but so well located... all can be done on a walk... To clea the point, as wrote : our double room are always made of 2 separated beds, and some time with 1 bunk-bed. Shower and washbasin are always in the room... and toilets are always on the floor... and we've got 3 toilets per floor... For comfort, stars and honey moon... for sure you should choose an other place... Sorry for the missunderstanding... but for sure, we never pretend what you where dreaming on...
