I, a young solo female, stayed in a 15 bed mixed dorm in Peace and Love for three nights in October. I found it ....different! I've stayed in plenty of hostels but this place took getting used to.
Firstly, there was one key for the whole dorm so if you wanted to lock the door you'd have to open it for anyone coming in late to the room. There was no baggage storage in the rooms and lockers were in the kitchen in the basement for valuables.
There was one toilet/shower for the 15 people staying in the room so you really had to be fast if you wanted to shower/pee! The shower, although it was a bit grimy looking and leaked onto the floor making it treacherous to walk, was by far the best thing about the hostel! It was the perfect temperature and had the best pressure that I have seen in any hostel, or hotel even.
The beds were three story bunks without safety railings. I don't know what the top bed was like but my mattress was worn in such a way that I constantly rolled to the edge ....surprisingly I got the hang of it and didn't fall out!
Price wise it's the best you'll find in Paris, prone to budget backpackers. Note that wifi is only free from 8am-7pm. The location is as good as for the price, once you get the hang of the metro you're sorted! The park/metro station nearby did seem a bit dodgey come the evening but once you have your wits about you you're fine.
The hostel is quite noisy, between the constant hip-hop/pop/dub-step remixing going on in the bar and the sirens from the fire station across the road, they don't quite do the 'peace' part of their name justice! As for the love, I did find the staff working here to be friendly and helped me with anything I needed. They sleep in the bar/reception and greet you at whatever time you arrive back which was different but nice.
