No kitchen facilities worked. Very poor value for money, not very clean. Unexpected charges. Location close to train station and town. Common area closed around 8pm, making it very difficult to socialise.

Great security, no real common area, lots of fines and penalties posted everywhere, black mold all over a pipe in our room. Good AC and our 6 bed had our own bathroom with mini fridge which was nice. Good 20 minute walk from the beach but you can grab the tram

Overall a good experience. Our room had a small balcony which was enjoyable. The terrace was cute but we found it a little strange that it didn't allow alcohol. It wasn't as social of an experience as what we were expecting. Staff was extremely enthusiastic and a little intense at times, it gave us a good laugh. Squeaky beds. Loved the AC unit.

We stayed at the hostel for one night, which was okay. We came one hour before check in time and we should wait out from the hostel because we did'nt wanted to pay extra for getting our luggage locked in. That was a little bit wierd. Its good to be with someone if you walk outside in the night. The room was okay but no curtains out to the terrace where people smoke

A good hostel, with good wifi, a nice terrace area where you can meet other people, and a very helpful and friendly staff.

Good: A comfortable bed, hot shower with good pressure, good air con. To improve: The kitchen is available from 8 a.m until 10 p.m, so if U leave before 8 a.m. you can't take Ur food from the fridge or fill in your water bottle. The water in the sinks is on sensors, it only runs when you hold your hand in front of the sensor which makes it hard to normally wash your face or fill in the bottle. Dirty. Toilets are not working well. Smoking is allowed in the common areas like the patio, smells.

The manager is lovely and very helpful. Rooms are clean but the toilets didn't flush a lot of the time. Area is close to the main street but it is a bit of a dodgy area. I walked home alone one night and felt quite uncomfortable with all the men staring and calling out to me. Its a decent hostel though. I would stay again. Good value for money.

The man at the desk is super energetic and helpful. We met some cool people here and there's a nice terrace area. The AC works well and everything is clean. Our only issue was the beds.. Very uncomfortable and SO squeaky. Did not get a very restful sleep. Also a little far from Old Town and the beach.

Location was good, just a 5-10 min walk from the train station and 15 min walk to the beach. There was an AC unit which was really nice considering it was around 100F when we visited. For the price it was good.

Overall, the hostel is pretty good (convient location and clean). Be aware that they do nickel and dime you. Anything additional is charged and they have very strict check out rules. Of you are smart and know all this It is fine.

Staff are really welcoming and helpful! The common room is on the back terrace and is a great place to meet people, except they lock you out at 9.30! Located about a 15min walk from city centre/beach. Reliable wifi in the rooms and heaps of power plugs. Bunk beds are small and no storage space in the rooms.

Our air conditioner leaked on the floor, we weren't shown the common area so didn't realise there was one until we were about to leave, didn't seem to be any lockers or anything? Had to make up our own beds which is pretty hard in a bunk bed. Some of the other guests in our room were pretty rude but I know thats not the hostels fault. They gave us a really helpful map though. Not a bad place to say but not amazing at all.

The man at the reception was kind and helpful. He took the time to explain some of the places of interest in and around Nice.

I would recommend this hostel because everyone there was organized. We were able to leave our bags there for a very small fee.

Very small rooms. The six bed room was basiclly 2 bunkbeds with three beds each. The kitchen and terrace was'nt that great and nowhere to put your luggage. But the atmosphere was good. Lots of backpackers to meet and talk to. Air condition on the room is a big plus! Not to far from the trainstation or the beach.

I was disappointed by the rude welcoming of the younger employee and his indiscretion about something I asked him and that he repeated to the people living in my room (that I didn't know). No lockers in the room. Room wasn't cleaned, plus some sheets and pillow case were still in the room, even though I was the only one in it. Shower was clogged but then when I told the reception, they fixed it asap. Light in the bathroom was on the whole time, impossible to switch it off.
