Property Description

Young & Happy Hostel opened in 1983 and it was the first independent hostel

It's located in the historical and famous Rue Mouffetard, a perfect district for the local people, the tourists, and the students. Ernest Hemingway refers to it, in “The Moveable Feast” as that, “quaint little shopping street” Known worldwide for its bars, its galleries, its restaurants and its atmosphere, the Latin quarter is a wonderful place of Paris. You could visit the Cathédrale Notre-Dame, the gardens of Luxembourg, the Jardin Botanique, the Panthéon , because they are near our hostel. Moreover, all the activities, and touristic sites of Paris are easily accessible by the subway.
The Young and Happy Hostel,is the perfect hostel of the traveler: we sleep in its dormitory, we play at its football table, we cook there, and we sit together with travelers from the world,making friends for an indefinite time or for the life..
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.
Enjoy our Happy Hour where people meet and make memories in one of the most beautiful place in the French Capital.

Great neighborhood. The hostel it self was not really suited for meeting new people. No walking tours / activities where organized despite a pub crawl but that did not run on sun- and mondays. The staff where really nice except for the night-guy who was the least helpful guy i’ve met in a while. The bathrooms etc. were not great and during my stay halve of the showers were out of order because of an rebuilding. At least is shows they are doing something about it.

The Hostel staff is super friendly, they allowed me to leave bags before Check-in. The location is nice, very close to other bars and restaurants. The atmosphere is cool, lots of nice travelers and people are generally friendly. The lockers require a lock, I did not have one and one of my items was stolen by some guys that arrived into the room over night, so that was a bit of a negative. The bed is SUPER small, I could barely fit on it, if you are >1.90 consider it wisely.
