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

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. Also the staff were really friendly and accomodating. Despite the fact that my visit was in december and thus the hostel was not full,... More

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. The staff were very... More

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. When... More

Just back from a weekend trip to Paris and I spent 1 night here before meeting up with friends. I was slightly nervous about staying in a hostel alone in a new city but I felt really safe here. The staff were extremely helpful and I was delighted to arrive during happy hour and get a free croissant. Ear plugs... More

Dear guest Thanks for your review. In fact shared bath are cleaned twice per day, early in the morning at 7am and during our lock out from 11am to 4pm. Of course, we rely on the respect of everyone when using the bath but unfortunately we cannot assure a total cleanliness at every moment of the day. However we stay... More

Really good location in Paris near lots of bars and night places. Then in the day there are still other places to eat and enjoy. The staff are helpful and friendly, breakfast is a really good start to the day. Great drink specials especially in Paris, had great chat with fellow traveller's staying there. I stayed in a 10 bed... More
