REMIND :

Even if we’ve got one of the best location, in the real city center, just a few meters closed to the Louvre Musuem and the King Royal Palace Garden, the Louvre Youth Hostel is still a simple and basic place intented for students, teachers, and youth travellers, where you will find just the necessary. For a the service of a 5 stars Palace, the silence of a church, or a romantic honey-moon… Honestly, you make the wrong choice. You should find an other address !!!
