    This place is great! Only problem is that it gets expensive riding the tram up.. though liked this place more than their beach one, as I think this one was a bit more relaxed and quaint! Loved this place, we booked a private room and could not have been happier. We had some problems with the wifi... but dont think that was normal. Room was quite! Food and drinks were good price in bar. CLEAN KITCHEN!!! Great communal spaces. Bar was chill for ALL ages. Was nice to be out of the crazyiess of Nice

    Clean rooms, great atmosphere: there's a very big common room where you can eat something - there's a sort of restaurant/pub - or just chill out. The breakfast is also very good. Plenty of young people :) Just one weakness: it's quite far from the city center: from the train station, you have to take a tramway for 5 stops, then wait for one of the hostel staffers near the supermarket, who picks people up and down all day (it's a 5 five minutes trip, by car: the hostel is upon a hill).
