Property Description

Known worldwide for its bars, cafés, restaurants, parks and galleries, the Latin Quarter is a popular destination for travelers. Centrally located, Notre Dame Cathedral, Luxembourg Gardens, the Botanical Gardens and the Pantheon are all within walking distance of the property, and all Paris attractions are easily accessible through the Metro.

Young & Happy opened its doors over 20 years ago as the first independent youth hostel in Paris. Located on the historic cobble stoned Rue Mouffetard, the area is the perfect mix of tourists, locals, and students. Our neighborhood, which Earnest Hemingway refers to in “The Moveable Feast” as that, “quaint little shopping street” is well equipped to meet the desires of adventure seeking independent travelers with its scores of authentic pubs and restaurants. Enjoy the deals at our nightly Happy Hour where our guests meet and mingle while enjoying one of the most picturesque and lively areas in Paris.
Let's Go Europe 2007 called Young & Happy, 'A backpacker's home away from home. The lively atmosphere, clean rooms and relaxed staff make for an enjoyable stay.

Latest Review

" We had quite a good experience with this hostel, mostly because of the location. It's so close to the metro and there are so many bars, shops, and restaurants surrounding the hostel itself. Lovely little square up the street with cafes. Hostel staff was cool and hung out with us some evenings. Showers are terrifying- you press a button and are blasted with cold water. Beds are creaky, earplugs a must. Overall safe & fun environment, would gladly stay here again. "
