I really enjoy, it's a nice, clean place, I sleep very well, and it has super friendly and funny receptionists👌🌞 Estrella and Simon always made me feel welcome.

I was in a room just for girls and everything was quiet, there's a good atmosphere, it's a good place to make friends

I miss you Paris jajaja 🌻😀🗼

I have already stayed 2 times at this hostel when I visited Paris.

Finding a place to stay in Paris is so difficult because you'll never find a completely clean, accesible, cheap, high-quality place to sleep unless you pay more than 100euros for a room in a chained hotel.

So for travelers who just want a place to sleep on their Paris trip, Young and Happy Hostel is OK.

-Metro7 (Place Monge) is 2 blocks away (a near metro station is always important)
-The hostel has an excellent location (Quartier Latin, Department 5)
-In general, the hostel has a reasonable and affordable price
-You can choose with how many people you want to share your room (all- female, mixed room)
-Wi-Fi free and it works perfectly
-Friendly staff (english, spanish, french)
-Friendly environment
-Baggage Room available (if you want to leave your baggage before/after your check in/out , is possible)
-No Limit of age for the guests (it's not like an Auberge of Jeunesse)
-Personal towel and bed sheets included
-Supermarket just beside the hostel (Perfect!)

Things to consider
-No elevator
-Share the same toilet and shower with all the rooms of your same floor
-Possible noise from the bars and restaurants infront of the hostel
-Check In: 15h / Check Out 11h
-The hostel is highly booked

I reserved a bed in a shared room with Four bunk beds and also shared bathroom and toilet . The hostel hasn't elevator. The WiFi bandwidth was good. If you want to visit Paris for long duration I do not recommend this hostel. But same as me just for one night sleep it's not bad.

Stayed 3 nights. Location was nice. It’s not too far from bus/metro stops. No A/C in the rooms but I think some other hostels don’t provide that as well. Windows open definitely helped at night to cool off but if noise bothers you just know during weekend nights it gets kinda loud outside and weekday nights were quieter in terms of street noise (there’s a few bars on the same block and it gets a bit loud sometimes - not many cars go down the block so not a lot of vehicle noise). Overall the noise wasn’t an issue to me but a roommate of mine was clearly annoyed he couldn’t have the cool fresh air and the window closed at the same time.

Beds were standard. I don’t know if they wash the red blankets they provide between guests though so watch out for that (they collect the sheets to wash but not blanket too?).

My room (#31) had 6 beds and 4 outlets but the outlets were in strange locations that didn’t make it easy to charge stuff. Only one was on the floor. The other three were in the middle of the walls. They should also provide power strips/extension cords in each room so at least every guest has an outlet. But they willingly chose not to after many guest complaints (I know management reads these reviews) and that annoyed me. Rooms also didn’t have individual lockers for guests to use in their rooms - the lockers were downstairs near the lobby.

Lastly, the bathrooms/showers could use a little TLC. The one shower I always ended up using on the 2nd floor (I guess because the other shower was always in use by another guest, probably because it worked properly) was in poor condition. The shower head was missing! It shot the water out in a jet that had excellent water pressure which I appreciated but it would shoot the water over the edge of the shower, push the shower curtain out and then water would flow onto the floor where you’re supposed to dry off (hard to dry off and get dressed when the floor is all wet). Because of this the floor also got dirty real quick. You have to also press the shower button every 10 seconds for warm water to continue to flow. It’s not a handle to turn or a faucet or anything - it’s just a button on the wall to start the warm water. Can’t adjust temperature but I thought it was perfectly warm (thank god).
The showers had in them a free shampoo/body wash dispenser which I really loved but the bad side was the shower and the shower room had no shelves or anything to put your stuff on. There were a couple hooks on the door to hang your clothes and towel but that was it (no where to place my phone and room key except the wet floor). I was annoyed by the fact they didn’t install more hooks and a few shelves in each shower (that’s cheap to do too). Also, I noticed a toilet on the 2nd floor had a large chunk of porcelain missing from the tank part. Like a literal hole in the toilet. Strange to not fix that.

The hostel is also undergoing some renovations, I know because I heard it going on at 6am and the lobby area ceiling was being repainted when I check out (it clearly didn’t need to be repainted though). Hopefully they add these small but important (and cheap) things to their “To Fix” list and I bet their reviews will get better. Overall, I’d definitely come back if I was in Paris again but I might ask to be on a different floor.
