Backpacking / gap year

13 June 2011

Liked: Easy to find, good on a budget. Close to the train station, so you don't have to carry your luggage too far. Everything in Nice is fairly close together, so even from the hostel the beach was only 10-15 minutes walk away.

Disliked: They put us in a different building than the one we expected to be in (apparently Baccarat is owned by the same people), and also paid a different rate than advertised. The rooms were small and cramped, and not very clean. The air conditioner was broken when we were there, which was not great because Nice is very hot in the summer. We had to leave the windows open, which let in the mosquitoes.

Liked: Great location within eyesight of the train station. Nice kitchen and facilities. Supermarket, cafes and pharmacy just outside the front door. The morning manager Rin was very nice and extremely helpful. We decided last minute to stay a couple of extra nights and she was able to arrange it so we didn't have to move rooms. We were so happy here we stay 6 nights instead of 2!

Disliked: It was hard to say goodbye.

Liked: It is very near the Nice Ville train station.

Disliked: If you are in Nice to see the seaside, I think this is not the right place since you have to walk for 10 to 15 minutes.

Liked: The breakfast was pretty good and the location was great, about 15 min away from the city centre. We also got bumped up to a private room, when they couldn't find our reservation, which was great.

Disliked: The kitchen was a bit messy and the internet was kind of slow.
