The staff was fantastic, always helpful when it came to asking for direction or recommendations of sights to see. The location was ideal! 5 minutes away from the beach, within a couple minutes walking from the train station & close to main historic sites. The bathrooms could use a plastic seal or bath rug for the bathroom to avoid slipping. Facilities were simple & met your daily needs. Note that beds have no curtains, bring your own towel, and outlet plugs limited in the room.

Really great to see you enjoyed spending time with our staff. We see you mention our location and gave us 5 out of 5 for our location. We are right next to the main city square Place Massena, just a few minutes walk from the beach. The 17th century old town of Nice is just a few minutes walk from our hostel. All main transport is close by, for example the airport bus, and the nearest tram stop is just 1 minute walk from our entrance.

Such an amazing hostel! Don't look anywhere else - stay here! The staff, location, and atmosphere can't be beat! And neither can the price! I would never stay anywhere else in Nice!

One of the staff changed our room without telling us and moved all of our belongings without our permission. I was very annoyed by this. My iPhone was left in the previous room where it could have been stolen.

Dear guest. Thanks for the feedback. It is not our policy to touch guest belongings or move them without the guests permission and we shall be investigating this further. Security is very important to us. The entrance to our hostel locked and opened only by guest key card access, the floors and rooms are only accessible by key card access too and there are lockers in every room to protect guests valuable items. We have a night security too to ensure the safety of people staying with us.

Great location! We had a great stay even with quite the variety of ages in our room! Everything you need! Don't expect super clean bathrooms but the extra ones in the basement are awesome. Great breakfast too.

Hostel is in a very good location, in the centre of Nice. Food was nice and breakfast was good. Only problem was the prison like ensuites in the room, the floor was wet and dirty for the majority of our stay. Apart from that hostel had good facilities and promoted a good atmosphere. Would recommend

Thanks for the recommendation to other travelers. We see you mentioned our food. dinners and food are available in the evenings from our hostel bar. Our lively bar is open until 2am in the morning and is full of backpackers from all over the world. We see you gave us 5 out of 5 for our location. We are next to the main city centre square, Place Massena, just a few minutes walk from the beach.

Really nice to see you enjoyed staying at our hostel. We see you gave us top marks for our location. We are right next to the main city square place Massena and the main shopping street in Nice Avenue Jean Medecin. The beach is just a few minutes walk away through the main city square and all transport is nearby too. For example, the nearest tram stop is just 1 minute walk from our entrance!

wonderful experience. location is reaally good! Cheap beer in happy hour. Atmosphere is quite nice. Can meet many young people in bars.

Great to read you had a good time staying at our hostel and in our hostel bar. Our bar offers our guests pints for 1 euro and cocktails for 4 euros during happy hour. Dinners and food can be bought too. Our bar is a great place to begin the night and to meet other backpackers during dinner time. During the weekends, there is always a big party happening at our hostel bar.

Initially I booked two beds for one night. After that extended the stay for 1 night more and after that for 1 night more. At the third time probably happened some kind of mistake because all beds in the dormitory seemed to be taken and there were some delay while getting the beds. I guess this can happen when booking at the last moment but probably a check can be done in order to be sure that the beds are free. Overall it was a nice stay.

I stayed 5 nights in 13 female room. There is only one toilet for 13 persons. Usually, you can open main door without key and also one more door to room are unlocked. I think it is not that difficult stranger get into your room. Receptio said they will shut the room right away but they didnt. Kitchen sink was out of work during my all stay. Location and bar is really good

Nice to see you enjoyed our bar. We serve dinners in the evening in our bar and our prices suite the backpacker budget. We see you liked our central location too. We are right next to the main city centre square Place Massena, close to all the main transport. Please understand that all our rooms have bathrooms inside, but we also have extra showers and toilets available in our basement, next to our Gym and sauna. We will be making sure the two doors you mentioned remain locked in the future.

Pretty good value, but very strange vibe. No refrigerator, so advertising kitchen a bit disingenuous. Very clean, comfy beds. Not-so-great encounters with staff - scammed by taxi driver they suggested, wasn't allowed to switch rooms when harassed by 50 yo man, me and other backpackers not given advertised food when everyone else (wealthy families) was. Overall it's like they can't decide between budget hotel and hostel, and it's not great if you're looking for the hostel!

Hands down most comfortable beds I have slept in inside a hostel. They have a bar with a happy hour that gets you some of the cheapest beers around. All the tables in the bar area are separate, so if you want to meet people you have to be a bit aggressive. I found the staff to be quite helpful.

The location of this hostel is absolutely perfect! Walk out the front door and walk about 5 minutes to the beach. It's also located very close to buses that can take you to Monaco and other nearby cities and sights. The staff was very knowledgable and friendly. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that I was in a room with 12 people and there was only one shower. There are more showers in the gym in the basement, but this could be very inconvenient.

Great to read that you liked our hostel. We see you liked our central location. We are right next to the main city square, Place Massena.The train station is within 10 minutes walking distance, or you can take the tram, as the tram stop is no more than 1 minute walk from our front door. We see you gave us 5 out of 5 for our staff. Our staff are always around to help out or answer any questions. We like to try and make sure our guests get the most out of there visit to the French Riviera.
