Liked: Very easy to find when arriving by train; very close to main road leading to the sea; nice common room areas

Disliked: The bedroom was very small for five people; the light fittings are in awful positions that would shine fully in someone's face in certain beds; instead of lockers, the rooms have lockable cages under the beds - but there are fewer cages than beds, you cannot access the cages if someone is sleeping in a bed above because you must lift the bed to pull the cages out, and the cages have a gap large enough to get a hand in, even when locked; the addition of a soap dispenser in the bathroom would promote better hygiene

Liked: Conveniently close to the station and to a stop for the airport bus (although this is now further away than it was)- Nice mixture of hostelly atmosphere, with shared kitchen and lounge facilities, and lowish-budget hotel for couples wanting a double room.

Disliked: no breakfast. lack of clarity about facilities. wifi not reaching to the room.

Liked: The hostel is super near to the train station (within walking distance). It's located in the town so it's very convenient and easy to walk around Nice. You may walk all the way to the beach through the main street. All in all, a very ideal location.

Disliked: There's no individual private locker in the room.

Liked: Good value. For the price paid usually you won't expect to get a hairdryer in the room, towels and aircon (the aircon worked well which is a plus point!)!!Antares has it all, even a fridge in my 8 sharing female dorm. I was surprised that even though it is listed as 8 sharing but it turned up to be 6, no complains!

Disliked: The staff who worked at night wasn't really friendly. The Internet connection was horrible even in the reception, it is fine if I can't get it from my room but they need to improve the wifi signal! The computers in the common room are slow too

Liked: Well! The receptioners are good with instructions but there's something saw in the site of areas like elevator is very dirty, our room have a dust under the bed, the frames and the lamp cover. The position of the bed is not good even though the type of deluxe is same like dormitory. I think you should consider the comments of the clients like me to do the best for the next time.

Disliked: Kindly to clean properly the room before the clients arrivals in each room. Kindly to clean the elevator and avoid disputing your workers in front of the clients.

Liked: Nice, clean, air-conditioned room. Very close to train station and grocery store just next door. €3 euro spaghetti and wine night. I originally booked a mixed room as there were no more only female rooms when I made the online booking but they offered me an all female room on arrival for no extra charge. Wifi access in rooms.

Disliked: Shower and toilet together. Bin in bathroom started to smell.

Liked: El hostel es muy grande y tiene buena onda ya que se aloja mucha gente. Hay noches que organizan spaghetti party ;) por 3 euros. Esta ubicado a metros de la estación de tren y de la calle principal.

Disliked: El staff no era muy agradable y la ridiculez de cartel pegado en el posnet de las tarjetas de crédito, que de noche no lo tenia, tira abajo el Hostel, ya que es evidente que lo hacen para no blanquear tu estadia en perjuicio de quienes viajamos con la tarjeta de crédito

Liked: The spaghetti and wine night was great a fantastic way to met new travellers . The hostel was so easy to find from the train station. Supermarket next door was a great added extra. We booked a 8 bed room and got given a 4 which was a pleasant surprise. We had a private bathroom which was clean and nice and big.

Disliked: Although the rooms were clean you could tell it had just been converted from a hotel with headboards still on the wall in a different position to the beds. It was a little bit ofvavwalk from the beach.

Liked: SO SO SO GOOD. Free aperitifs, an awesome spaghetti dinner, they basically do a lot to get everyone in the hostel to hang out together. Clean, nice bathrooms and rooms, decent wifi, great kitchen, amazing location - you can see it from the train station. There's a locked room to store your stuff before and after you check out. Staff are great in English and French. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Disliked: No soap in the bathrooms, and the outlets were a set of power strips by one side of the room, when I personally prefer an outlet right by my bed. But, like, that was no big deal.

Romantic getaway

10 July 2014 James would recommend this property

Liked: Centrally located near train SD tation, easy walk to nearby sites, low cost

Disliked: Staff very abrupt and shady Insisted we pay cash because "our machine is down," raising many questions about their honesty. Insisted we re-register again for second night stay... credit card machine still mysteriously not working, surprise! Stiff small bed gave us sore backs, rroom small and constantly bumping elbows on headboard and nightstand. Shower stall so small that you cant bend down to pick anything up from the floor.
