Liked: Very close to train station, really clean showers. Grocery store is right next door and only 10 min walk from boardwalk and the beach.

Disliked: A couple stains on towels and sheets. Guy at front desk super unhelpful and hates his job. Didn't provide us with any information so don't bother asking him for things.

Liked: The service was very good each time. The staff is really friendly and hospitable. They speak both French and English and ready to help you with any information. The rooms are clean, with air conditioner. The hostel is very well located, close to the railway station, bus and tram stops. There is a locker room where you can leave and pick up your luggage any time. There are also cage lockers in the rooms, you'd need a lock with a big hook. The touristic spots are reachable within walking distances. Convenience stores are just next door as well as pharmacies. I have felt very safe walking in the street around even late in the night. It is a very good choice.

Disliked: Dori left no negative feedback.

Liked: Opposite train station is useful for trips. Spaghetti dinner! Courtyard next to kitchen. Free wine and nibbles! The air con worked well. The lockers are cages under the beds so bring a lock.

Disliked: The dorms are quite cramped, and many have no windows. Spotlights in all the main areas make the place rather hot. You have to pay a tourist tax when you get there of about 1E per day: no big deal. The breakfast was a bit pricey.

Liked: Good atmosphere, great kitchen, always clean, lockers in the room, great staff!

Disliked: In our room just outside the back door, the freezer was all frozen and couldn't close the door and we couldn't keep our stuff cold. Other than that all good!

Liked: Good location near the train station, I didn't think it was dodgy at all. Nice & clean room with effective air conditioning. Helpful staff and good atmosphere, would be good for a group of friends or a longer stay too! I think I could've made friends easily with other guests because of the terrace, but we stayed just one night. The curfew is a bit funny (it's 3 am), I'm not used to curfews but since we went to bed early anyway it didn't matter. Good experience, you get what you pay for. :) I recommend, especially if you're coming/going by train. PS. Take the tram to beach/Old town/harbour, it's convenient.

Disliked: Room was pretty small but it's basic in France and the price is okay. We asked for a double but got a double+extra bed, we didn't mind but it made the room even smaller.. maybe because we're a gay couple they thought there was a mistake and gave us a different room.. Well, no problem.

Liked: if you wanna see more of cote d'azur than just nice, this is a great place to stay because it's just opposite the train station. (20 min. to monaco, around 30 to cannes...). it's like a mix of hostel/hotel, we stayed in double room but there are also dorms - mostly young people there who meet in the common area downstairs. if you travel alone you will surely find backpacking company.

Liked: Very close to the main station, next to a mini Monoprix, close to a lot of cheap restaurants and the main boulevard going through the tourist drag of Nice. Fairly dependable wifi for a hostel, and a great computer bay.

Disliked: it was a magnet for 20-year-old English kids looking to get sloppy drunk and throwing up by 10pm. Classy times.

Liked: The hostel organises champagne nights and spaghetti nights, which are a great opportunity to meet people and get some cheap food!

Disliked: It's a bit of a party hostel and some of the other guests were a bit noisy late in the evening, so if you like going to bed early then it might not be the place for you!

Liked: Good location - close to the station and only about 15 minutes' walk from the beach. Supermarket right next door. Staff friendly and most speak good English - normally someone at reception all day between 6am and 3am. Good kitchen facilities. Free internet. Bed linen and towels included. Clean. Nice patio / garden area for hanging out. Communal activities in the evenings which helps you meet other guests. Our room was a good size.

Disliked: Only tiny tiny complaints would be: my friend and I only got one key to share, no curtain on window (so sunlight came in in morning), no way of turning off AC (was a bit chilly on a couple nights), and no hand soap in bathroom (but we bought some for 60 centimes down at the market). But those were only tiny tiny issues.

Liked: La ubicación es excelente, a 2 pasos de la estación de trenes y de los principales servicios y playa. En mi caso, la habitación compartida de mujeres con baño privado, muy cómoda, tengo la sensacion de que no aseaban el baño todos los días (pero eso da un poco lo mismo si solo hay mujeres, no ensuciamos mucho jaja). Cocina disponible, wifi en todo el edificio, computadores.

Disliked: Los demás huéspedes, el hostal no tiene nada que ver. Soy joven y no me molesta la presencia de grupos grandes, pero los portazos, los gritos, cantos a cualquier hora del día o noche, no es agradable, realmente los gringos y australianos se creen dueños del mundo. Un sediento, después de su fiesta, me sacó el agua del refrigerador aunque después tuvo la educación de devolver otra nueva. En fin, la mala educación de las personas no tiene por que empañar el buen servicio del hostal. Solo lo cuento para que estén preparados.
