The hostel is in a decent location right near the station and a twenty minute walk from the beach. It's quite a busy place with a lot going on but the kind of people that stay here are the kind you'd expect in Nice. It's right next to a supermarket and has a really good kitchen which makes it easy to save money by not eating out. A good hostel overall for a short stay in Nice.

The manager is lovely and hands out free wine! Comfortable beds and decent bathrooms. Not much happening in the common areas except on the spaghetti nights. Great location especially if arriving and leaving via train.

Hostel is in a great location so close to the train station and only a short walk to the beach. Staff are friendly and the rooms clean.

Upon checking in, we were upgraded to a private room when we were booked for a dorm at no extra cost- such a blessing! The staff were lovely and check-in/out were very easy!

It was awesome. As everyone says, the location is key here. Walk out the station. Bear left and it's there with the red sign. Honestly cannot miss it. So close. It does mean it is a little away from the beach but only ten-fifteen mins walk and it's a lovely walk down the high street. I did think the room was quite cramped but I've stayed in worse. And spaghetti party was awesome too.

Not so safe zone is the biggest concern and there is no safety guard so that is minus. Staff is not very helpful and I always saw only one person for a rather big hostel. Rooms are not that big either. On the plus side, facilities are cool and is close to the Gare.

Wifi was very slow, if connecting at all.

The location was good! 3 minutes from the station.I was in a 4personsroom. I think it was actually a 3-personsroom but they just put a single bed in it. That made the room a bit small for 4 girls and their stuff. The good thing was that we had a private bathroom and toilet for the 4 of us. I missed a plug by my bed to charge my phone at night. The spaghettinight was great! Nice food and a good opportunity to meet new people. They didn;t have breakfast included, but the supermarket is next door.

Hostel was good, nothing special, but god value for the money. You can walk to the beach from it, it takes 20 min or something. Room for the three of us was pretty small, no walking possibilities, just lay down and sleep... bathroom also very small. They say they accept credit cards, but hey "suddenly " their pos terminal is not working, so bring cash with you!

Nice hotel, close to station and supermarket, fair walk to beach. Rooms locked by card key, and include air conditioning and a nice bathroom. Relatively pricey but for South of France it's to be expected.

Being right across from the train station and a block and a half from the main pedestrian/tourist street in Nice, it's a very convenient spot for a backpacker. The hostel does an amazing job of bringing everyone staying there together to socialize with their pasta and wine nights and the basement is nice and big for drinking and meeting people. It's 30 seconds to the main drag and about 20 minutes on foot to the beach. I'd stay here again for sure!

Second time in nice. We stayed before in the old town area but enjoyed a different type of area here. We were upgraded from a larger dorm to only 4 person which was nice. Not much room to place bags but bathroom was large and spacious. Kitchen wasn't all that clean- but no doubt that was from the people not cleaning up after themselves. Really enjoyed our stay here.

A good place to stay. Wifi in the rooms. A fantastic meal provided for only 3 Euro. Not a bad choice at all.

Location and staff are great! Across the street from the train station and an airport bus stop. Shops and restaurants are around the hostel. Two tram stops or 10min walk away from Place Massena/waterfront. The staff and reception are really friendly and helpful. The private double with ensuite was clean, air-conditioning worked well, and TV was nice. My only complaints were the Wifi did not work in our room (we had to go down to the lobby) and there was only one electrical outlet in our room.

This place was very close to the amazing sea. The 3 euro spaghetti dinner was a fantastic way of meeting people plus it was delicious and cheap. Kitchen, rooms, bathroom were all good. Staff was great, except one guy was rude when I was having an issue with the electronic key card unlocking my door. And my dress that I left on my bed disappeared my last day there when I was out for a couple of hours. Could easily have been a hostel mate, but maybe the cleaning staff so lock everything up.
