The building was dirty & smelly but once inside, it was ok. We stayed in a superior room which was comfortable but had no lights except 1 lamp which was bizarre! Bathroom was new &clean except that the shower rooms were 95% see through!(quite the scandal!)Location was PERFECT! Staff was very friendly except the lady who asked us to pay to use the toilet after checkout and then turned off the water supply half way through the shower because 'we were finishing their water'! I MEAN WE EVEN PAID!


Only women room's toilet couldn't be locked. So I told staff. And that day It was fixed.But toilet was toooo small. And wifi was not working very well. Also, there is not air conditional. So I don't recommend this hostel. And Old woman staff and very tall man staff who can't speak english were very rude.

Had a really good stay, loved the location in the older part of town, and the staff was extremely helpful with good recommendations. Would have been nice to have a fan or some A/C in the room though, it was pretty stifling. Overall, we would definitely stay with you all again!


That the staff are very unhelpful. There was one lovely lady from the UK i think that helped us a lot. Other than that there is no information displayed about Nice and when we did ask someone something he was to busy on the computer to even turn around and look at us.


Best hostel that I've stayed at thus far! The staff were very kind and helpful!

We booked a private double room and when we arrived we heared that our appartement was located somewhere else. I think you should tell this in advance because we booked this hostel because of it's location. Luckily the location of the appartement was fine as well but I still think people should know this before they book! The beakfast was terrible, coffee was all days finished and there where no plates ect.


Ratio service/money was poor: no place to hang clothes in the room, awfull stench from the toilet. On the other hand staff was young and nice.


Rm 115 is directly over a bar which played very loud rock until very late, miserable trying to get to sleep. Otherwise good stay 2 blks from metro station.

We were very disappointed with this property. We had an en-suite private room which was quite a walk away from the actual hostel. The look and state of the room was quite poor, very rundown. We weren't given the Wifi password, it wasn't written anywhere, we tried calling the hostel office to get it but the phone didn't ring. Ended up having to walk all the way back to the actual hostel just to get the Wifi password. This property is severely overpriced for what you actually get.
