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.

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.

Liked: Antares hostel has a great location, a stones throw away from the train station and the busy town centre as well as a short walk from the beach and Promenade de Anglais. We booked an 8 bed dorm and arrived to a 6 which was a nice surprise. The room was clean and comfortable with a newly furnished bathroom and towels provided. The social aspect was really welcoming with a common room where big groups would gather in the evening before going out, also connected to a hostel behind meaning even more people to meet. The hostel offers a spaghetti and wine night for 3 euros which although we didn't go to we heard good recommendations for. Wifi in the room is a bonus, although can be slow especially when everyone in the room is using it.

Disliked: The only negatives to note would be sharing a room with 5 other females and only having 1 mirror in the bathroom can make getting ready more difficult/time consuming. There were also only 5 plug sockets between the 6 of us and these were all in one place in the room, leaving those in a couple of the beds further away at a disadvantage.

Liked: The bed is very comfy. They clean the room everyday. Value for money i guess thought its a bit expensive.

Disliked: Should put curtain on the bath tub. The floor got wet every time after shower. And would be good to cover the window in the toilet, i felt insecure every time i bath. Not sure people from other building can actually look into it.

Liked: Antares Hostel was great! The location is ideal: right by the train station and in walking distance from the old town. The staff facilitate a social environment for travellers by hosting events such as apéritif meet-and-greets and pasta dinners. There is also a big common area for travellers to relax and talk. The kitchen facility was huge and fully equipped with everything you would need to cook a nice meal.

Liked: Nice Hotel converted to Hostel in decadent nice centre.

Disliked: Staff is a bit unclear about the rules, and instead of imposing them they just make you feel unconfortable. For instance: instead of saying to people don't stay in the garden, they just put out the lights and start taking the chairs. They made a spaghetti night, but if you didn't want you couldn't use the kitchen and couldn't use the terrace. Also, my room didn't had blinds.

Liked: This place is fabulous! We arrived to a welcoming staff member and were told about the free spaghetti night at 7pm. Every night something is happening downstairs (free wine, nuts and chips!) and it is the best place to meet other young travellers. The rooms were clean and fridges are available in both the downstairs kitchen and on your floor. Kitchen facilities were brilliant including several microwaves, gas stoves, toasters etc. The location is right near Nice Ville train station and Old Town is a 10 minute walk from the hostel. I would recommend this hostel to any one. Best place I have stayed so far!

Disliked: The only issue we had was someone stealing my friends fruits from the bedroom. Lock your things in the locker space below the beds and it shouldn't be a problem. Bring a lock with you if you don't want to purchase any on arrival! :)
