Internet connection was not very stable at 3rd floor.


Great location next to the train station and a close walk to the water and old town. Easy to meet people with free drink night and €3 spaghetti and wine night. The kitchen is half inside and half on a terrace which is very nice during good weather.


The towels were not clean enough. I saw a cockroach in the stairs. The staff was friendly. Overall impression of the hostel was disappointing. The hostel is close to the shopping street Jean Medecin which was good.


Was a nice clean dorm, the ensuite bathroom was quite large with a nice shower. Very close to the Gare with a grocery store next to it. Right off the main street with all the shops and walking distance to the beach. Very nice hostel!


This hostel is located at the very nice location, lots of common space (kitchen available for use with plenty of space), helpful staff, the only small downside would be a little bit too packed dorms, although bathroom is very spacious.


Diane was great she gave me a good price and was very helpful. The other staff was also nice but I didn't like the manager who was flirting and saying inappropriate things. The location is great. Close to beach, trains and buses. They offered 3 euros pasta nights with wine and also free champagne nights where you could drink a lot of it. I found the hostel clean and with a good kitchen and nice little backyard. I recommend the Antares hostel!

the staff were nice. they allowed me to change my room. but it's inconvenient as there is only one plug in the room. if you choose down-bed, there is no light. it's really dark. by the way there is a four-bed room on first floor is pretty small and dirty. there are even some fly in the room. besides it was quite bad that i could smell everything from restaurant (on the street) the whole night. if we closed the window, there is no fresh air came inside. wifi connection didnt work in room.


Solid place, right across the street from Nice-Ville station which is really nice. Good staff, the room was alright, a little cramped even by hostel standards and the shower needed some work. Decent downstairs facilities. I may have been there at a bad time but there just weren't that many people staying there so it was pretty quiet.


Great location near Nice Ville train station, great staff, super clean rooms, kitchen facilities and lots of lounging areas! Not hard to get to the main sights and there is a super market just next door and lots of restos too! For a classic, reliable hostel experience, this is the place!


Very clean, very professional. Helpful staff. Great facilities, fun kitchen with hostellers using and enjoying it. Now I am returning with a friend on the 20th May.

Staff were very helpful and friendly. They allowed us to stay in the same room when we extended our stay


Excellent location, dos minutes away from the central station. Kitchen and common room big and well equipped. Rooms clean, spacy, towels included! I didn't have wifi in my room, though. In general, excellent price/quality relation.


Excellent Place to stay. Located directly opposite to the Nice Railway Station-one can see the hotel from the station itself. Staff can converse in English as well. Neat restrooms.


In a great location right next to the train station and on one of the main roads that leads to the beach. However, it´s more of a 2-star hotel than a hostel. Community feel only really comes out if you´re cooking dinner (kitchen that opens to a courtyard). Otherwise, you´ll be left on your own in this place. Couldn´t get the A/C to work in our room. Decent place, but the worst we´ve had out of 7 so far on a two week trip.


Would be good if curfew was enforced. Lost sleep with partygoers well after 2am.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Kitchen facilities were excellent. Free wine at 7pm was excellent - very social! Rooms were clean and showers had plenty of hot water. Hostel is across the street from the train station with a supermarket next door. Wifi in rooms but sometimes patchy.


The hosts of the old couple are very nice, and give us lots of information. The location is great, many stores and restaurants nearby.


Basic but very good. Limited locker space. The luggage room is never locked.


Although it is a hostel (and a hotel), it doesnt have the atmosphere of a hostel. Good thing was that it was very clean. I didn't like the room where you could sit downstairs, it was very dark. Also didn't i like the kitchen very much. For the same price I had a hostel in Marseille, where the breakfast was included, which was a delicious and good organised breakfast and a good start of the day for travelers. The hostel is very close to the trainstation and main shoppingstreet.
