Breakfast was great! Staff were friendly. No air conditioning in our room and was kind of tight for a 14 bed dorm. Would definitely stay here again.

Central location in Nice, very clean ( I was in a 12 bedroom, power at every bed, 2 showers, ask for room 105. Confy beds and also, good wifi signal, which doesn't happen that often in hostel these days... easy to find and also, very easy to just go around everywhere.

my stay at the villa was good, but not as great as some other hostels. after booking my bed 3 months in advancebi had to check out from my 6 bed dorm and then into a 5 bed dorm which the lady at recption saidas an upgrade, but the room was extremely outdated with only 2 power sockets for 5 people. other than that happy hour at the bar was great including the walking tour.

It is in a really great location. However the place needs a definite revamp, the bathroom was pretty mouldy and the beds were awful. Individual powerpoints or lamps for each bed would be nice. That being said, the staff are great. There are lots of activities you can book through the hostel. The bar gets pretty lively (a lot of Contiki etc staying there). Just the facilities that are old. Up to you.

I had a fantastic stay. The staff was great- super helpful from the minute I walked in. I went on the walking tour of the city and the girl who led it (I can't remember your name- sorry- it was on Saturday 13 July) was great. Super nice, knowledgable about the city, and has great taste in ice cream. I met fantastic people and had fun. Maybe the hostel can put new strings on the guitars? I have referred this place to multiple friends already.

Very kind and helpful staff. Good cheap breakfast option at the hostel! Somewhat loud if your room is facing onto the street but that can be fixed with ear plugs!

Great location if you want to be near the beach! And not too far from the train station, or airport from bus. They have a bar with good downstairs which makes meeting people so nice in hostels. Rooms were clean, showers were nice, and you get your own locker in your room for your luggage you just need a lock! I highly recommend!

This place is soooo cool. Great place to meet new people and hang out. They got a pretty nice bar/restaurant. The wifi is great, but be careful, it can get spotty in some of the rooms, but generally, it's super fast. The facilities are awesome as well. Definitely would recommend this place to anyone looking to have a good time in Nice.

Overall, we had a good experience. The beds are clean and the €3.50 breakfast is a pretty good deal. Great location next to old town (about a 15 minute walk to the closest beach). We loved the free walking tour of old town. The 10-person hostel dorm has one toilet for the whole room, and two showers (however, both are in the same open space as the toilet so people only use the shower one at a time). The gym facilities were rundown when we stayed at the hostel, with weights scattered everywhere

Good hostel for people who want to stay near the beach and party. Has a great bar with cheap drinks, walking distance to the beach and area with nightlife. Also has good facilities (eg. workout room, sauna) available for use. Staff were generally pretty friendly. Cleaning of the dorms did seem a bit weak.

We stayed in the double private room. It was a few doors down from the hostel location and more quiet. The air conditioning worked well and the bed was comfortable. The room is very average and small - I don't think it's worth the price. We enjoyed the walking tour of Nice with Amelia.

It was quite hot in the dorms even though it talks about air conditioning, but really it's hard to complain when you're staying in the south of France!

The toilets/showers downstairs near the gym room were absolutely disgusting and the smell was foul

We booked this hostel for its location and for its gym which looks quite nice on the website. We stayed in a private room with bath and it was fine. However, the gym is a complete joke! The equipment was not even put together and there was not anything usable in there. That was disappointing.

This place is somewhat overrated. There are extensive renovations ongoing at the moment, which ruins the atmosphere and makes it noisy. The location is perfect, maybe that's why it costs so much to stay here, otherwise there's nothing particularly fancy, nothing to explain why it's more expensive than the other places in town. There's nothing wrong with this place, I had a fine stay, but if I came back I would try a cheaper place.

The hostel is extremely well located, just 5 mins away from the beach. It has a lot to offer, fantastic food, a cool bar, free computers and staff is extremely cool. Would definitely return.

Great hostel! Emma and Brick were amazing and super helpful. Good location, cheap food and drinks, plenty of things to do! The only pain is you can't cook Bertrand 7pm and 10pm because the chef is making dinners but is cheap food. Would definitely stay here again!
