Overall, I am very satisfied with the hostel. The people there are very friendly and helpful. The only thing I felt inconvenient is that in the dorm, they did not equiped with electric socket. Meaning that I had to wait in the common area (e.g canteen or kitchen) to charge my phone.

Rooms are very small and there are not enough sockets for such things as shaving and mobile phones. Not in a splendid neighbourhood but cleaning up the garden and open it all day to guests would improve things. People might want to rest there after a long day in Paris. Bonus: M-station Hoche is very nearby.
