About Young & Happy Hostel Latin Quarter

Young & Happy is a classic travellers’ hostel located in one of Paris’ most famous
areas, The Latin Quarter. In fact, when Earnest Hemingway (who lived nearby)
wrote “The Movable Feast” he called our street, rue Moufftard, “That quaint little
shopping street.” We’re happy to say that not much has changed in the last century
on Rue Mouffetard. If you’re looking for a classic Paris neighborhood, great social
atmosphere, easy access to fantastic local pubs and restaurants, then choose Young
& Happy hostel.
Young & Happy is fully equipped with all the amenities that the modern traveller
desires, including: FREE WiFi, a fully equipped kitchen, FREE lockers, FREE luggage
storage, 24-hour reception, and shared computers in the lobby.
Young & Happy also has a bar, a common room with a flat screen television, board
games, DVD’s, a foosball table, a book exchange, and soft drinks for purchase at the
front desk.
Our Young & Happy staff is very knowledgeable about Paris and the area. We live to
show our guests the best that Paris has to offer. However, there is no shortage of
entertainment within steps of our front door. The Rue Mouffetard is full of bustling
local businesses like cheese, vegetable, fish shops, and locally owned restaurants
and pubs. In fact, because the Latin Quarter is home to the world famous Sorbonne
University there is no shortage student pubs with student prices. You’ll quickly find
that prices in our area are much lower than other parts of Paris.
Because the area was frequented by so many writers and artists of the “Lost
Generation” at the beginning of the 20th century, there are also a few sights right
near the hostel. For example, just a short walk away, on the Rue Cardinal Lemoine,
you can see the building where Ernest Hemmingway used to live. But wait! There’s
more! Within easy walking distance is: Notre Dame, The Pantheon, Luxembourg
Gardens, Botanical Gardens, and The Marais.25 years ago, Young & Happy Hostel is unique and independent hostel in Paris. Since then, our concept has often been copied (but never equaled). Clean, warm, friendly atmosphere, allowing you to meet other travelers, and of course unbeatable prices ...

Our staff will be able to help and are English-speaking. You can also take our free maps, you'll never get lost! We’ll help you to plan your days so you can make the most of it.

The Young & Happy Hostel assures you a pleasant and exciting stay in the city of Paris always adventurous.
