    AMAZING. This was the second hostel I stayed at in Paris and it was by far the best. I first stayed at St Christopher’s Gare Du Nord Hostel but left early because it was terrible. I chose Young and Happy hostel randomly and it was amazing. Beautiful location, very friendly staff, nice facilities, and great vibes. I will 100% be staying here again in the future because I loved it so much. Highly recommend this place!

    I had a good time! I was a solo traveler and stayed in a 6 bed female dorm. The beds were pretty comfy and the bathroom was clean. The staff was great!! I would stay again.

    Fantastic location, very friendly staff. Rooms were a bit dark and cramped. Cellar kitchen is atmospheric, but not as clean as it could be. Plenty of secure storage.

    The location is great, it’s a lively street of bars, restaurants, stores, street food with multiple subway lines available. The staff is really nice and helpful. The facilities are just going to be smaller and tighter because it’s Paris so the shower and bathroom situation can be tight but it works, the water was always hot. I was here for 5 days and was fine.

    Enjoyed my stay at this hostel overall but nothing great to write home about. Didn’t feel like a great hostel environment to meet other people. Great location which was key.

    Way overpriced and when I first arrived the staff weren't very helpful or approachable. This changed with shift changes. The facilities weren't great either.

    Staff were amazing, location fantastic, bar was great... but I had to check out a day early and go stay elsewhere because the other two mornings of my stay I could not take a shower at all! I booked an 'en-suite' 4-bed dorm room, but there was nothing besides an open tap there, where you couldn't wash. The wait for a shower was way too long, to the extent that I had to give up - and it was a really hot weekend, so this was horrible. 'En-suite' is not any sort of en-suite - unacceptable.
