I stayed there for two nights and doubt I will return. I had a great room the first night, but thanks to their booking system I had to move to another room the second night. Separate washrooms for men and women, but each only seems to have TWO showers for the entire floor (100+ people). The location is pretty far out of the way so the only note on that is that you're closer to the CDG airport.
The free Wi-Fi was down the entire time I was there so I had to buy time on one of their terminals. They said it was because they were switching to a new system but I have seen other reviews with similar complaints.
The rooms themselves are decent. Each bed has a curtain for privacy, a light and an outlet. The lockers are terrible! They're under the bed and slide out like a giant cage, which make a terrible screeching sound any time someone uses them.
The bar downstairs has horribly slow service and wasn't very relaxing. They call themselves a backpacker's hostel but that's not the case at all. There's no kitchens, not enough facilities, and the place is overrun with noisy underaged lunatics at all hours. The rooms were littered with everyone's stuff and mess.
The biggest upside was the free walking tour for which the hostel is a pick-up point every morning at 10am. Do it!
