    Very nice hostel located close to the tram for those arriving from the Airport. Staff were very nice, everything was clean, rooms had AC, the only surprise was that you had to pay the rest of your deposit in CASH. Other than that, overall very nice hostel

    I chose this hostel because it was the cheapest one in Nice. The location is perfect for day trips along the French Riviera being a 2 minute walk from the train station. There is a small free breakfast and happy hour wine included, which is a plus. The beds and rooms were clean, but the showers could be updated. For the price, I had a great stay.

    The location is really good. Near the old town, and the main attraction and really close to the train station. They have elevator which is rare in France. So if you have big luggage’s it’s like haven. The WiFi is really good. They have lockers as well, available for all guests for free. The breakfast it’s not so good. Only cereals and bread. The room is small. Although they have air conditioning (I stayed in a private room). The staff could give more infos about the city.

    Hostel is in a good location next to the train station, on the tram line and 10 min walk in to old nice. Ok for the price I only stayed one night. Rooms a little dirty no windows in the rooms. Security was ok and showers in the room which was a bonus. Not the best but for the price you really can’t argue

    Great hostel! Lovely and very helpful staff. Lockers for storage didn’t really work and it was awkward to get your stuff out as it was quite cramped. Doors were also a little challenging to open. Beds were not assigned either which could lead to awkwardness within dorms. Overall, amazing location and value for money. Just be prepared to not be the most comfortable in your room which you shouldn’t be spending a lot of time in anyway! 🙂

    Amazing staff. They were very helpful and so kind! The rooms had the option of turning the AC on or off. The cleaners came to the room regularly. Right near the train station & the tram. Overall a good stay.

    Very Good

    I had a good experience and would probably stay again. The hostel is in a good location right by the train station. Most of the staff I encountered were great and helpful. I did have one issue. I asked for a blanket as some of my roommates had the air conditioning really high. They said they didn’t have any blankets .... which was interesting because a few of my roommates had them. They just looked at me and told me to turn the AC down. Really not helpful at all. So besides that It was fine.

    I stayed in the 6 bed mixed dorm and on my second day when I went back to my room late at night, I found that there are 4 more people hanging out in the room although the room was already full! And when I asked they said that they’re from couchsurfing and they kept talking and talking until 1AM and I couldn’t sleep then they went out but left their luggages. At 4AM they came back and made noise again in the room and as a result I woke up! Seriously? couchsurfing in a hostel?
