A clean new hostel. A little far from sites, 15-20 minutes by train. Train stop a few minutes walk. Great to meet fellow travelers.
Many small local shops and food places from different ethnicities are within walking distance.
The hostel bar Belushi's is convenient, and doubles as a common space but prices may be a little rich for those trying to stay on a budget. There are local markets close by but with no cooking facilities you are subject to cold prep food ie. sandwich, finger food.
The accomodations otherwise are fantastic. New, clean, modern, and plentiful. Wi-fi, computers, lifts, card keys, tours. A small after hours bar downstairs off the small common room opens up for the night goers without disturbance to the rooms up above. The prices are well within reason (almost cheap) considering the relative cost of Paris.
The sleeping quarters are the best I've seen for a hostel and the staff is informative, helpful, and pleasant.
My only dislike would be location, but after learning the underground this is easily overcome.
