Very helpful staff. Excellent showers

Staff wasn't very friendly, Internet was shut off between 11-2 and all guests were forced to leave while she cleaned. Also bathroom had no sink so you would have to walk all the way to the kitchen and wash your hands there. Internet was slow and there was no real common area to meet other travellers.

Tried to check in at 11 (on website I was given the option) but was not allowed until after 2pm. Staff was very polite and friendly- but very small common area for socializing with other backpackers.

A decent enough hostel, but limited facilities. The reception lady had good English, and was very helpful and approachable. Rooms were clean and tidy, but pillows were a bit small and hard. Microwave and fridge came in handy, but not as convenient as a proper kitchen. Cost €10 to use the washing machine, which is really high cost! Takes a bit more than 20 minutes to walk to the beach. Not a bad choice for 1 or 2 nights.

A good stay

Staying at the backpackers hostel was good! Patrick is so kind and gavea us loads of information. We chose this hostel because of the AC but it kinda sucked. Plus the wifi was shotty and you couldn't be on it past 11:45 pm which is when everyone is home? So I thought that was strange. Overall good experience though!

No personal lights/outlets · No lockers · Surcharge for using credit card · 1 shower for all the dorms. There is no sink with the toilet, but there is one in the dorm. · Less than 5 minute walk from the train station, and right off the main street in Nice. Maybe a 20 minute walk to the beach. · Wifi was accessible from my dorm, but that may have just been because I was in the room closest to the reception area · No real central area to hang out, sm

I had an amazing time. It took me a bit to find the place at first, as you have to ring the bell. My room did not have a safe and there were only 3 showers, but the hostel was very clean and had air conditioning.

Very strict and weird rules. Wifi only on between 8-11 and 14-00... Also a weird checkout routine. Everything else was fine.

Thank you so much for our stay and all the help you gave us. Was nice to stay in such a clean hostel. Maybe look at tightening screws on bunk beds extremely noisy every time we moved.

The hostel is clean and the staff are very friendly. The problem is that it is a small hostel so the staff are only available when someone is checking in, so if you have questions or need help you have to ring an "emergency only" buzzer. There is also no common area just a small kitchen with room for two people and a few benches in the hallway so there isn't much space for meeting people.

Great location for train/airport - 15 min walk to old town/beach. Very clean and super helpful staff. One shower for all building which was fine as it was quiet when I stayed but can imagine it getting pretty busy! All in all would recommend

Dscent place. Decent location. Asian lady that works there is awesome, old white dude seems kinda lazy. Nice comfortable bed. Lot's of security protocol. Fast internet. Only negative is there is no atmosphere. There is no real common area, organized activities and none of the other people there really talk to each other.
