I stayed here for 4 days in early October at the beginning of a 32 day euro trip. The place has a great vibe and the staff is super friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hostel in a heart beat. It has everything you need: free breakfast, happy hour, 2 minute walk from the metro and not to mention... More

This is, by far, one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The staff is very friendly, speaks tons of languages, and are always willing to go above and beyond their responsabilities in order to help out. Young and Happy has a great ambiance, and me and my brother made great friends there. Thank you for everything.

I picked this hostel because of location and good price for its quality. The location is really great, because it's 10 minutes to Pantheon and Jadin de Luxembourg. I didn't have to use transport to get to all the main sights, because they are so close. The street is very picturesque (I've even seen it in a movie) and has... More

hello thanks for your review. Wifi works everywhere, in the dorms too so did you have trouble to connect ? It could be busy with all the connections at the same time. That's right, no elevator within Parisian buildings, they are all the same in the district. Sorry for the use of the shared bath, cleanliness service stops at 4... More

Really enjoyed my stay at Happy and Young hostel, the location was great (within 5 min walk to metro and 15 min walk to st michel) and there was a real sense of fun about it.

This hostel is in the best location in Paris. The latin quarter is full of cheap eats which are fitting for a budget traveler. You can easily walk to the pantheon, luxumbourg gardens, notre dame, st germain...and alot more. I found it to be a very safe area and always lively. The hostel itself is basic.

I stayed in the hostel for 5 days last week and had one of the most uncomfortable stays yet. While it was nice that instead of the 10 bed dorm I booked, I was put in a 6 bed dorm, the service ended there. Most of the people working there seemed to be only interested in their own affairs.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
