All I have to say is that out of all of the hostels I stayed in, from Prague, Rome, Vienna, and Paris, this one was the most dingy. I should have definitely paid attention to the reviews about the cleanliness but alas, I was in a hurry and the Paris portion of my trip was not my best planned leg.
Rooms were OK, beds weren't bad. Rooms were a bit stuffy though but if you open the window, especially in my room, we were facing the main street..so I think every evening I was there, the noise was quite bad if you wanted to sleep early.
Here's the worse part though...the showers were absolutely disgusting. I don't know how to describe it..just don't go there. Even if I overlook the cleanliness of the showers, there is only one temperature setting...o wait...its a push button that spits out water either cold or warm...if you get warm...you are having a great day...otherwise...its like water from the arctic.
Aside from the actual living quarters, the staff were very nice. Paying for internet is a bit of a hassle....lame sauce. Breakfast was good...Location was good...especially for if you want to buy some fresh fruits...the supermarket is right next door. However, it is not open on Sundays....which is a Paris thing I was told. If you feel hungry...grab yourself a crepe down the street...not particularly expensive.
