JO&JOE unveils its new open house in Paris Gentilly and announces further launches

May 6, 2019

Yes, we’ve made it!

After first launching in Hossegor in 2017, JO&JOE opened its doors on April 6, 2019 just a stone’s throw from the Cité Internationale Universitaire, in the south of Paris.

Only 2 minutes from the RER B line, 20 minutes from the Arc de Triomphe and 20 minutes from Orly Airport, JO&JOE PARIS-GENTILLY is a new living space, open to all, locals and travelers alike, where youth hostels meet hotels.

Here you can enjoy a drink, cook, share experiences, have a good time, chill out… and you can even sleep there!

This is the new place to be!

Regarding the design, JO&JOE has developed its interiors with global architecture and game-changing design studio PENSON.

At the Open House of Paris Gentilly, street art is everywhere thanks to the work of 9 local and international artists who have covered the walls with their creations.

What’s JO&JOE Paris-Gentilly?

EATING: A restaurant that seats 140, a varied menu of fresh, simple and generous dishes offered throughout the day. Dishes for sharing, like the XXL quiche and ultra-indulgent burgers.
Culinary treats guaranteed – tasting them is a must!
The cashless payment system lets customers pay with their mobile – it’s as easy as that!
Dishes from €7.

DRINKING: The bartenders are always available to welcome customers for a coffee or a colorful cocktail.

Different types of accommodation are available:
– “Together” are shared dormitory-like areas where several people can sleep while maintaining their privacy thanks to modular spaces. These spaces can be made private for 4 people or more – from €25 per bed
– “Yours” are private hotel-style guestrooms for 2 or 3 people – from €70 per night for two people
– “Cabins” are a unique concept in France offering a private individual space with access to a communal bathroom and restroom. The perfect solution for those undecided between a bunk bed in a dormitory and a private room – from €30 per night
