Pro: the location is very central and nice, full of clubs and restaurants, the price is pretty cheap to be in Paris and there is a nice breakfast included. Cons: The common bathrooms are a bit of an hell, the price of the drinks at the bar at definitely not cheap (6 euros for a 33cl beer and a 500ml... More

This is the perfect hostel for young travelers who want to get a mix of an old-timey parisian atmosphere, but also be able to go out to bars at night. Also, the breakfast is really great; there's a nice spread of croissants, coffee and oj. The staff is really friendly and helpful, plus they always play the coolest music. The... More

The Notre Dame is a... More

The hostel itself is very good. As another reviewer mentioned, they make the best of the space they have and offer a free continental breakfast. Myself and a friend stayed in a five bedromm female only dorm and it was very nice and clean with my only issue being that perhaps it should only be a four bed dorm as... More

I've stayed here twice now. Once 2 years ago and again last week. The staff are brilliant, so friendly and helpful. The Portuguese chap on reception was lovely and remembers everyone's names. The lockers use 50c pieces but you get that back so they are free. And you choose your own passcode so they are very secure. They let you... More

Excellent location for traveling and has lots of pubs, cheap places to eat and grocery stores at your door step. They've made the best of the tiny building space available in the heart of Paris and it feels very relaxed, homely and clean on the inside. A good place to meet new people everyday and have interesting conversations. The breakfast... More

Me and my best mate decided to go to Paris just for the hell of it, and thought that getting a hostel was the best idea. We settled on Young & Happy because it was in a great location, reasonably priced and offered breakfast (something which not many hostels do). The location was perfect, it is nestled on a fantastic... More

this Hostel is pretty great all around. The location is perfect. Walking distance from Metro, which can take you anywhere in the city. Rue Mouffetard is a great street, with a lot of places to grab a bite and/or drink. It's super safe. I walked back to the hostel almost every night and never felt unsafe. My room was spacious....

We arrived at the Young & Happy hostel to find an exquisite beauty sitting behind the desk. She was both friendly yet beautiful, something so hard to find in this day and age. We had a fantastic time. The hostel was good to.

Very good price for Paris, and the area is good for cheap eats and student bars, it's just a shame about the hostel: Was in a 6-bed mixed dorm which had only 1 working plug socket and a ceiling too low so you couldn't sit up on the too bunk. The hostel is advertised with a kitchen, however this was... More
