From Nights People


Young & Happy Hostel is located in the heart of the Latin Quarter on Rue Mouffetard, known worldwide for its lively student life and its numerous cafés, bars, markets, restaurants, parks and galleries.

Psssst...we have some of the best happy hours and inexpensive bistros within sight of our front door. In other words, our neighbourhood is perfect for the budget traveller. We’re located within walking distance to some of Paris’s most famous sights, such as Notre Dame, the Luxembourg Gardens, the Pantheon and even the Louvre. We’re not saying the Louvre is a five-minute walk but it’s perfectly doable.

We strive to be a fun and social hostel where our guests can meet one another and get the most out of Paris. Our English-speaking staff members are on-hand to help you with any questions and are looking forward welcoming you to Paris!

The receptionist is on duty 24/7 for your safety and to check you in whenever you arrive.

All of our guests can enjoy our free breakfast!

We have FREE Wi-Fi and Internet at a rate of €1 for 30 minutes, €2 for 1hr, €3 for 2hrs.

If you’re looking for an unbeatable location and a fun and friendly atmosphere, then book your stay at Young & Happy Hostel now to start your Latin Quarter experience.

Please note that we don't accept guests under the age of 18 without an adult companion.

If our hostel is full, we suggest that you try the other HipHopHostels located in great areas in Paris.
These include Le Village, Le Regent Hostel, Vintage Hostel, Caulaincourt Hostel, Le Montclair, Woodstock Hostel and Plug-Inn, located in Montemartre. Our other hostels and budget hotels include Oops! (which is also in the Latin Quarter), 3 Ducks and Aloha over near the Eiffel Tower and Absolute Hotel which is located on Canal St. Martin. Each of us in the HipHopHostels family. All HipHopHostels are consistent in that we have friendly and knowledgeable staff, we’re all located in convenient and authentic areas of Paris and offer great value for the money. We are not cookie-cutter in that we are all the same. Like any family we all have our own personalities but we are sure a HipHopHostel has something for every type of budget traveller.
