This is a perfect accommodation if you would like to be close the the train station and the bus to the Nice airport. We had a private room with a bathroom. The room was a bit outdated, but it was clean and tidy.
Loved it here. But the shower area is tiny
Good location and excellent people. Great atmosphere, I met a lot of people here. Wine and spaghetti night was good too. The only thing was they allow school groups so it was really loud till 2 am and started up again at 8 am. Little kids running around everywhere banging doors.
Was great for the price and there is lots of free alcohol to enjoy.
I could feel the springs in the bed. So a little uncomfortable.
Key card room access and cages for storage. Located 2 mins from the main station. Staff were also extremely friendly and helpful. Cheap well cooked meals were also prepared for guests who wished to eat well for €3. One bathroom between up to 6 in each room is only draw back.
unfortunately there is only one bathroom for each room and no communal showers so in an 8 bed female dorm you must wait for each person to use the bathroom individually, which takes time!!
Excellent location very close to the main train station. Dorm room was very spacious and towels provided which was nice. Wifi was very patchy at times.
Nice staff and always they want to help you and make your stay the best. It is really close to the center by walking and to the train station as well. You can always find people from everywhere if you are a solo traveler.
Very good hostel and facilities!

Nothing of special...there are better hostels in Nice. The wifi didn't work...and reading the reviews, it seems that it has never worked!
Good place to stay helpful staff, only thing is place is run down but it is cleaned regularly.
The atmosphere was great and it was value for money. The place is a bit old but that doesn't take away from it at all. The staff were so helpful and always tried their best to accommodate you.
We barely stayed here a night because it was a sort of rest stop between long journeys but still can say that the staff were so friendly and helpful. Room was clean and facilities were good. Super close to the train station too. Would be good if they responded to their emails though, couldn't get directions there from where we were arriving which made it tough to find the place.
Very popular with young folks, the staff is excellent. They host free champagne nights on some weekends, and it's a cool ice breaker. The rooms could be better maintained, and the space in the toilets needs to be utilised better. Feels a bit cramped. Overall, with the excellent location, staff, ambiance and crowd, a definite yes from me.
Great hostel. The train station is about a 2 minute walk from the hostel, and the staff were very laid back and friendly. They have fun activities at night; when I stayed they had a free all you can drink champagne night were everyone from the hostel would get together and have a great time. Definitely recommend for a fun, cheap stay.
Sickest stay ive ever had at a hostel! The free champagne night they had that night they easily gave away about a 50 bottles, they were giving away sticks which glows in the dark, and also they had these sticks that gives out sparks (cant come up with the word for it) The music was great, it was packed with people, they were giving out free champagne, and then the blond receptionst took us out to different bars. Loved this place!

It's hard to imagine that the rooms were cleaned at all. I saw the cleaning woman indeed, but she was talking on her phone while 'cleaning' the rooms. Moreover the bathroom was full of moulder, many facilities like the toilet lid were broken. The beds were squeaking and the mattresses were saggy. The WIFI wasn't working constantly. All in all, I wouldn't recommend this hostel, although it's hard to find affordable accommodation in Nice at all.
This place is awesome. I've stayed numerous times and it's an awesome atmosphere and very affordable. It's right by the train station and a short walk away from everything. Staff is great and they give you towels (which is a huge bonus for me). The owner is very cool and they throw dinners and champagne parties. Best hostel in Nice I think.
Loved this hostel. It's a fantastic place for lone travellers to socialise. The spaghetti nights and wine nights are a great idea. The staff are super helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend.
