Abstract: In this paper, we show that the convex domains of $ \mathbb{H}^n$ which are almost extremal for the Faber-Krahn or the Payne-Polya-Weinberger inequalities are close to geodesic balls. Our proof is also valid in other space forms and allows us to recover known results in $ \mathbb{R}^n$ and $ \mathbb{S}^n$.
