Liked: It's really close to the station which was a bonus for me, the staff are really friendly and always there to help with tips on catching buses/trains.

Disliked: The bathroom in the 6 person dorm was tiny, the lockers are cages that slide under the bed so you have to bring your a big lock and there's no breakfast lol

Liked: A converted hotel that still uses the middle floors as hotel rooms that mainly train staff stay in. Very cosy feel and had plenty of areas for mingling and a decent sized kitchen even if the utensils and pots and pans etc in the kitchen left a little bit to be desired.

Disliked: They close the outside area fairly early and the inside area that is located in a connected hostel is fairly small.

Liked: Nice clean rooms with a bath room. Ok beds and a possibility to put your stuff in a basket and put a lock on it. A cosy courtyard.

Disliked: The staff weren't that service minded towards backpackers. I.g. I had to find out my self where the common areas were. Kitchen and courtyard closed as early as 21:00

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.
