Had a good stay in this hostel and enjoyed discovering the only district I hadn't stayed in so far, the 20ème arrondissement! You should not be put off by some of the sceneries taking place outside, I actually felt very safe in this neighbourhood and I feel it is one of those new hip booming places. Lots of Asian restaurants! Pro's & cons of the hostel:
Pro: stylish and design interior; free & fast internet; nice courtyard to hang out in (no noise after 10 pm, understandably since it is surrounded by rooms); nice shower with towel dryer & hair dryer; simple free breakfast with croissants and baguette; helpful staff (some friendlier than others though).
Con: squeeky beds; although it might seem a good idea to have a bathroom in the room, i do prefer to have them in a communal area outside, this because i felt bad waking up in the middle of the night and flushing; definitely more of a hotel feel to it - if you're staying at this place just to sleep and get up early, it's perfect for you, if you're looking for your typical socializing hostel, this is not the ideal place; breakfast lounge is tiny and at peak hour, it's difficult to find a place to sit
