Overview

Check in to Young & Happy Latin Quarter and meet travellers from all around the world in our impressive 18th-century building. Hang out in the underground common room, complete with vaulted ceilings, and play a game of foosball – then have a drink or two at our on-site bar before one of our fun events! Set yourself up for the day with our delicious 6-euro breakfast and if you're hungry later, cook up a feast in our shared kitchen. Let our friendly staff help you plan your sightseeing in this chic, romantic French capital!

Location

We’re in the 5th arrondissement, close to loads of Paris' most famous sights. The hubbub of the Latin Quarter, a cool district packed with boutiques, galleries, restaurants and bars, is a 15-minute walk away. The Notre-Dame Cathedral, Gardens of Luxembourg and the Panthéon are all within 10-20 minutes on foot, while the Place Monge Métro stop is just 2 minutes around the corner. We’re easy to reach from Charles de Gaulle Airport: take the RER B train to Châtelet-Les Halles, and then take Métro line 7 to Place Monge station. From there we’re a 2-minute walk.

Rooms and Dorms

We’ve got mixed and female-only dorms with comfy bunk beds and with private bathrooms. All dorms come with free linen and you can rent a towel from us for a small fee (no drip-drying here!). Our rooms have housekeeping visits every day, so you can trust it'll be nice and clean.

Extras and activities

Wi-Fi is free throughout the hostel, so you can update your Instagram anywhere you please, and we’ve also got washer/dryers so you can get that laundry done. Feel free to check in any time of day, and our 24-hour reception staff will be happy to help you. Lockers are free and big enough for your backpack (just remember to bring a padlock). If you fancy a quiet night in front of the TV, our sociable common room is the place to be.

    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!

    Staff was really helpful. Everyone behind the counter was extremely helpful. 4 Euro breakfast was good and they offered washing facility for 8 Euros which is fabulous. Television to watch live sports and it was nice experience. Just one thing which I hated...I booked 8 dorm and it was damn on 4 the level and room is really small.

    Although the facility isn’t the best the staff is! The location is perfect and the atmosphere that I never had before ... one night the entire hostel went to a party spontaneously just by walking into a conversation at the kitchen ! The staff helped me with everything from tips to help planing trips and great company!

    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.

    I really enjoyed my stay at Young & Happy. It’s not the best hostel you will stay in but the location is great & staff extremely friendly. If you read the reviews & you know what to expect before you book then you won’t be disappointed.

    Very Good

    09 Dec 2019
    Staff is very friendly and helpful! Regarding the location, the area surrounding the hostel is nice but it’s far from a lot of the main sites of Paris. I don’t know how transportation from the hostel is because all transportation was closed due to riots. Regarding hostel facilities I don’t understand why there are only 2 showers for all the shared rooms of the hostel. I stayed on the 4th floor and there were only 2 showers on the second floor. That was annoying. Also the room was freezing!!!

    Location cannot be better. As for facilities, the shower was the worst (you have to push several times and wait to get warmish water, but it wasn’t the hot shower I was hoping for after a long day in cold Paris). The rest was okay except for my super loud and uneducated roommates, but that has nothing to do with the hostel itself.

    The hostel is ok but there isn’t any comfortable seats or lounges in the common area and not enough plugs both in the room and in the common area. The beds aren’t super comfortable but it’s in a nice location close to a train station
