Liked: a lot of computers to use, a big kitchen, location, all the other hostels in this price class are the same...

Disliked: we had a attic room - so the person who must lie above in the bunk bed had NO space!! (the other rooms are better), it was very loud outside (construction site noise)

Liked: It was very close to the train station and the kitchen facilities were good (try to cook early or late because it does get busy).

Disliked: The shower flooded the room out. The staff seemed a bit moody, we arrived at 11pm after a long day of travelling and one of us didnt have enough to pay for the hostel but were staying 3 nights so would have been able to pay the next day but the man at the desk sent us out (it is not in a nice area) to a cash machine which was out of service. It all just seemed a bit unnecessary. Make sure you have the cash with you! It also advertised free internet, but it never seemed to work, but there is an internet cafe across the road.

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.
