Excellent location, the room was nice, clean and quiet. The Staff were really friendly and professional always willing to assist us. We really enjoyed our stay here.


This is a great hotel/hostel. Situated right in the town centre on a quiet street. Main Street and old town less than 2 mins away. Staff were very friendly and very helpful and knowledgable about local area. This is a definite ban for buck place. Will definitely recommend here to family and friends.


I loved the hostel; it was very nice and clean and safe. I felt very comfortable and at home. The only thing that I wish there was more of was interaction with other people in the hostel. There wasn't really a 'hub' to hang out in with all the people there nor was there a kitchen or social aspect.

Clean room, including a large well kept bathroom. Great location close to the beach and walking distance to the train. Only down was nowhere in the room to lock your belongings except cheap Ikea stand that did not fit a backpack. Luckily I didn't have sketchy roommates


A serious negative point is the shower (cold and a ridiculous amount of water flowing) and a not so serious one is that there's no social area in the hostel. Apart from that my room was really clean and tidy and everything seems to be ok.


Worst shower in my whole life, freezing water alternating with scalding water. Poor wifi (it doesn't work in some rooms). No lockers. No plugs close to my bed to charge appliances. I wouldn't recommend this place, unless you want to stay in a really cheap hostel.


Hostel Paradis was the best thing in Nice. It's easy to find and it's easy to get somewhere from there. The entrance area makes you feel welcome. My room was nice and clean and the bed was comfortable, though it made some noises when moving (metal frame). Toilet and shower were in the room and also very clean. The staff remembered my name even though I only stayed two nights.


The lady in the reception is pretty and helpful.


Location is excellent, close to beach, restaurants and shopping.

The Aussie receptionist deserves a pay-raise. That's not a comment on her wage nor an assumption that her wage is poor, just that she is exceptional at what she does.


Can*t say much as they shifted us to another hostel with the reason that others had trashed the room. The other hostel which was apparently meant to be better my travelling friend was eaten alive by bed bugs. Hotel Meyerbeer.

Good hostel overall. Great location but it doesnt have a common space or kitchen. Staff could be better.


Clean and functional. Very close to the water and the old town. We were in the top floor... I kept hitting my head on the ceiling (I'm 6'1"/1.85m). One of the female staff members was rather unhelpful and agitated both days I encountered her. Said staff member was not especially helpful when I mentioned that I left an item behind after checking out either.


Nice location, but nothing you should go if you want to have a typical hostel experience.


No common room or kitchen but you can use their sister hotel down the street. We were in a dorm and it had A/C! Had a kettle and small fridge which was nice. But the shower water flew out the curtain and made a sopping mess on the floor every time. Private lockers in the room a plus! Down the street from the beach and old town. Worth it.


What the hostel lacks in terms of common space, it more than makes up for with its amazing location. It is literally 5 minutes to the beach.


We showed up and our hostel room was dirty or ruined by the people who had just stayed there, so they transferred us to a different hostel about 5 minutes away that they also own. That place was really nice. Both were super close to the beach. Never saw the actual rooms at this location, just the other one that they transferred us to.


I stayed in a four person mixed shared room. The hostel was clean and tidy and actually looks like a hotel. The strong point of this hostel is its great location , although it could be a bit cheaper

Amazing hostel. As I become more experienced as a hostel user, I realize more and more how great my stay was. Right next to the beach and in a good comfrtoable part of town and they have a basket of beach goods for you to pick from on your way out. They come in everyday and clean the rooms which includes making the beds and leaving a clean shower towel for you. My room also had AC! Which was a wonderful surprised. The staff was excellent. Very helpful and very cute migh I add.
