MIJE Fourcy Youth Hostel – Paris Marais

In the heart of the Marais district, MIJE youth hostels welcome you all year round in its 17th century buildings. Approved by Jeunesse et Sports for the collective reception of groups of minors, the hostels have more than 400 beds in private or shared rooms, a restaurant and two activity rooms. MIJE youth hostels are an ideal place to start your walking tours during your stay in Paris: only a 10-minute walk from Notre-Dame or the Opéra Bastille. Thanks to the numerous means of transportation nearby, you can also get to some of the most important places in Paris such as the Champs Elysées, the Eiffel Tower or the Sacré-Cœur.

Before becoming a youth hostel in 1978, the Hôtel Charpentier known as “Le Fourcy” has a long history. In 1500 it was under the authority of the Saint-Eloi Priory and was inhabited by a King’s Counsellor, a certain Christophe Ripault. Gilles Charpentier acquired it in 1677 and transformed the house into a hotel. It had many inhabitants (the widow of a governor, a button maker, a boilermaker, a dairyman, a liquor merchant, a shoemaker, etc.), was divided in two and then reunited. It then housed one of the most famous “brothels” in Paris, “Le Moulin Galant”, which was closed in 1946.

In 1978, the City of Paris, owner of the premises, gave the Charpentier Hotel to MIJE, who completely restored the buildings to accommodate young people from all over the world.

“In order to make the most of your stay, our teams have set up a health protocol linked to the Covid-19. The MIJE are signatories of the Caring Attitude charter and the Declaration of Health Protocol of the WYSE, the international organisation of educational travel actors”.


In our youth hostels approved by the Ministry of Youth and Sport, our association offers you guidance by an experienced counsellor throughout your group travel project.
