The Regent Hostel is budget accommodation, so you shouldn't walk in expecting everything to be perfect. Some things could've been better, but I don't have many complaints.
The receptionist that helped us was very kind and helpful. He upgraded us from a 6 bed dorm to a 4 bed dorm at no extra charge, then helped us to store our luggage until check-in time.
The hostel is very close to Gare du Nord (hub for SCNF and Eurostar trains) and Gare de l'Est. It is also within a 5 minute walk to two metro stops (Lines 2 and 4). If you plan on doing major attractions like The Louvre and Eiffel Tower, buy a booklet of 10 metro tickets. It's a cheap option, and you'll be needing them after a few days of walking to the Seine from the Regent and back (a good 6km trek, at least).
Other than that, the free breakfast was an average French breakfast (croissants, bread, OJ, coffee, and jam). The bathroom was fairly clean, minus the two messy Australian backpackers who stayed with us. And the room/bathroom was cleaned daily.
The room could get hot, and it would get fairly noisy in the morning with the window open...so just prepare yourself for budget accommodation and you'll be fine. We had a much better experience than some of the reviews I've read.
