I stayed at this hostel for 5 nights in Febuary, everyone that works and stays there is very friendly, there are a mix of all ages, from every nationality you could imagine, the location is perfect, just down the end of the street is the beach and the promenade, bars restaurants and shops are on the doorstep. I have traveled...

The only redeeming quality this place has is that it's close to everything. Other than that, it sucks. The beds are horrible, the bathrooms are worse. Security is lax to say the least and it's hot. They have no air conditioning, so you have the sleep with the window open. If you have the window open, you will not be...

As a hostel goes everything was supplied as expected. It's a really good price for what you get. Breakfast is toast and coffee which I was a little disappointed by. However this isn't so bad. The gentleman at reception is extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. All the service from the staff is friendly and enthusiastic. I lost my key. Luckily...

We stayed here one night in July 2011. Pros - Close to everything (but a bit far from the train station) . Cons - My sheets were wet and came with little curly hairs on them! It's obviously a party hostel, so if you want a good nights sleep don't stay here, but you should at least expect clean sheets....

We were booked in a 6 bed female dorm. We booked only for a night first coz were apprehensive of the place. But we reached and the place was nice. We had the dorm to ourselves but a girl came just for a night. The rest of the days it was like a private room for the two of us....

Even though the location seems great, in the middle of the old city centre, the hostel is anything but cozy and the staff was just rightout unfriendly. When we arrived, we were frankly shocked to see that the entrance of the hostel is a dirty gloomy back door, without anything but just 1 little sticker note on a doorbell with...

We took this hostel in Nice because it was really not expensive but when we arrive we were totally feeling not safe, the room was really smelly, the bed as well and we couldn't enter the bathroom because of a horrible smell! The walls were really dirty. But that wasn't the worst! When we were sleeping someone was ringing over...
