    One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Perfect location...walking distance from everything. Amazing staff, carrying and accommodating. There was breakfast every morning and some nights they offered free drinks. The atmosphere is great, very friendly and nice. Rooms were clean and had AC and were cleaned daily with fresh towels. Highly recommended this place. The host and staff were super nice and accommodating.

    Had a great 4 night stay here during the women’s World Cup. Was easy to get around from the location- ideal for my 5am train to Paris! 20 min walk from the Promenade de Anglais to. The hostel itself is good, provides a free breakfast and the staff are great. Would defo return when in Nice again.

    Antares is conveniently located right near the train station, is next to a supermarket and a nice 15 minute walk to the beach. The staff were friendly and good at giving recommendations, the rooms were a good size and the beds were comfy. It would’ve been good to have more organised activities and the curfew is a bit inconvenient if you want a night out on the town. Other than that I was happy with my stay and would recommend it for staying in Nice!

    Was an amazing place to travel post undergrad with a friend. Nightly happy hours that brought the guests together allowing us to make plenty of friends to go out with. Really nice rooms with clean bathrooms. Would definitely stay there again!

    Very Good

    The hostel is right by the train station and a short walk from the beach & old town. There were lockable cages for your bag, but we had only 4 for 8 people (and one was broken). The bathroom was a bit musty (no window/fan). There was an A/C unit, but it was never very strong. On the morning I left, the bathroom light didn't work, too? The other travelers definitely skewed towards a younger drinking/party crowd. I was fine, but I've had better facilities for the same price in other cities.

    Hostel is at great location just opposite main train station & short walk to the beach. Staff is friendly. However hostel is about 10yrs out of date. The rooms - beds, mattresses, bathrooms, all need to be upgraded. Wifi didn’t work everywhere which was annoying. Hostel says curfew 3-6am. But drunk roommates came in at 4am & woke everyone up. Don’t think I’ll stay here again.

    When you compare this to other hostels, Antares' rooms are quite run down and the hostel had a weird atmosphere. There's also a 3-6am curfew which is the worst thing if you're a young traveller who likes to go out at night (like 90% of the people who stayed there). If you're solo, you can meet people here but the hostel doesn't have any social events other than a free rosé hour. The dorm I stayed in had mosquitos and small moths in them, and the aircon didn't work properly.

    The staff was really nice but the 8 person room was not as nice as the photos shown. There were bugs in the room and there was no AC. Several people staying were bitten by mosquitoes and many could not sleep through the night due to the severe heat.

    Utilities in bath room are too old, could not generate warm water for showering and hands washing. There are insects in bathroom. Pillows and blanket are very old. New and clean towels were provided only for the first day. The ones for the days after were old and did not look clean. Smell in the room was not clean smell. There was desk phone in the room, but was not working - could not contact reception by desk phone from the room. Staff was not willing to help when assistance was needed.
