"Great location, particularly its close proximity to the train station. We were upgraded on the second night to a private room instead of a six bed dorm which was a huge bonus!"

Liked: The location is very close the the train station and not far from the coast or the main stretch. The kitchen has everything you may need to make a meal. The beds were comfortable. Great hostel to meet fellow travelers. Nice is a great location for making base to check out Monaco, Cannes, and other locations on the French Riviera. Free champagne one night!

Disliked: More outlets in the rooms would serve well. Internet connection was touch and go, with not a lot of touching. Kitchen was fantastic on several levels, but if you try to make a meal anytime after 19:00 it is utter chaos, as everyone else is trying to do the same.

Liked: I'll be honest if you're looking to stay in Nice it's going to be expensive, which is why Baccarat was perfect for me and my friend on our interrailing trip looking for a one night stop to get us from Italy on our way through towards Spain. It's cheap with a lively atmosphere being on one of the main roads with plenty of bars all around and even one inside the hostel itself! It's also a very short walk from the train station which is what you want with big bags. There are also plenty of PC's with Internet access downstairs.

Disliked: The location comes with a compromise, it's noisy so bring your earplugs. Roommates crawling in at the middle of the night turning lights on didn't help matters either but this is a bit of a party hostel and can be expected. Staff at check in we're a bit awkward only having a hostelworld list to hand and took a while to sort us out.

Liked: It had a great party atmosphere, close to the station, near the main shops and 10 min walk from the beach. The owner of the place would pour free wine during the evenings which made every night a fun night. The kitchen was nice and there backyard court was a nice setting to have your meals. You can also walk up the stairs and cut through another hostel to reach the road near the station, really handy since the supermarket was right next to it.

Disliked: The rooms were quite small and was very dark, can get quite humid in there. Wifi is hit and miss, you need to fiddle around with the various connections to get a decent connection.

Liked: Great atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff and some brilliant pasta and champagne nights that make a cheap and tasty meal! Excellent location and so easy to get everywhere.

Disliked: Bathrooms were not in the best state and guests can often be loud and rowdy. A good party atmosphere though if that's what you're after. Wireless internet was also not terribly reliable.

Liked: The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms were fine, with comfy beds (although make sure you turn the air con on in the daytime as Nice obviously gets pretty warm!). The cooking area has plenty of utensils you can use and two gas ovens. There is an area with about a dozen computers which are free to use. Although the best thing has to be the spaghetti evenings which seem to be done pretty frequently. A big thank you to the staff on that one, who cook and serve it for you! It's a great way to meet other people in the hostel, oh and you get loads of free wine too!!

Disliked: James left no negative feedback.

Liked: I like the young female receptionist. I forgot her name. She seemed to be the only one there who was friendly and kind. the hostel has a lift, which is good for you if you have heavy luggage. you can use the wifi from your room. it's convenient

Disliked: the facility was not so good. it looked very old. i expected to pay less for a place like that. i also had some problems with the shower there. the water suddenly stopped running when i was showering. but when i switched to another shower room, the water ran normally. dont know what happend

Liked: It was nice how close it was to the station and to place Massena (20 minute walk or else two minutes on the metro). The staff were very friendly and flexible and they seemed to do as much as they could to please their customers. This along with the great hangout facilities made an impact on the atmosphere which was friendly. I felt very relaxed while there and compared to other hostels I met a lot of very nice travellers.

Disliked: I did not like the toilets in the place and you could tell that it was a 2 star hotel (bad stove, some doors would not close etc). Even though it was cleaned every day, the bedroom areas did not seem to look it! It was not aesthetically nice! But if you are staying for a few days this really does not matter!

Liked: great kitchen with an area to eat outside! great hot powerful showers. really good location!

Disliked: only one safe basket to lock under each bunkbed. (to be shared by 2 ppl if necessary. wifi was dodgy (kept going on and off) and computers were all really slow. also i wasnt told that there was a breakfast ( 4e extra) it seemed that only some of the staff knew about this as one said they didnt do breakfast and another said they did... and they did! it may hae been down to a language barrier.
