The neighborhood is not as dodgy as some have stated. I felt totally safe, and I enjoyed Belleville. It is a truly local experience that you won't get in the center of the city. It is ethnically diverse and busy with local markets and non-touristy stuff. Those who call themselves "travelers" and have issues with the neighborhood should have their "traveler" label examined. You are a tourist. The Hostel is super clean and wifi works well. My only complaints are that the beds could be more sturdy and have own outlet and the lockers are small. I expect to fit my 60Litre backpack in a locker because hostel theft is just a part of life.
