MIJE Hostels in Paris (Marais)

John Saxon

Past OR future Camino
On my Camino journey in 2019, I stayed at one of the MIJE hostels in Paris (Marais). Although I haven't heard anything about their being closed, I was unable to book on their website or via hostelworld.com this fall and still not able to do so for upcoming Camino in May 2022.
Question: Has anyone stayed at MIJE hostel in 2021 or otherwise have info about whether or not they are open for business?

The more "official" hostels in France like mije seem to have taken a mix of reactions to the pandemic. Some allow online bookings, others are only by phone. They generally have less space as well, with some not offering dorm beds at moment. As MIJE also is for groups from schools etc they may be limiting space for independent bookings. But I also suspect they simply aren't taking bookings yet for May 2022 (not unusual even in normal times for some accommodation providers). Personally I would book somewhere elsewhere with free cancellation and hold onto hope that MIJE will have availability if you want to stay there. Or phone them to find out.

No new information to add, only that I hope the MIJE will start taking bookings soon, and haven't been closed down by the pandemic. I first stayed at the MIJE 20 years ago and it's my go-to landing spot in Paris. What a wonderful hostel!
