Liked: Downstairs facilities are great - common areas are v comfortable and additional showers etc. in the basement. Location is ideal for Nice Ville.

Disliked: I think I was unfortunate - while I was there, the elevator was broken (not ideal if you're 6 flights of stairs up!), the A/C and Wi-Fi went down and a guy in my dorm was violently sick everywhere. The dorm bathrooms are pretty mouldy and don't seem to get cleaned.

Liked: The location is perfect if you are a fan of the beach. The facilities provided at the hostel are great. My room had a private bathroom with a hot shower. Rooms and beds were cleaned and linen was provided. I liked the bar as it created a great atmosphere for socialising and meeting new people. My favourite thing about this hostel was the free walking tour which gave you a really good insight into the city and a bit of history too. I made all the friends that i then continued to travel with in the region there so that was perfect. Wifi worked in the room also which was an added bonus.

Disliked: The breakfast provided was average but i figure it would be hard due to the room sizes. Compared to other hostels, this was my most expensive one, however its facilities, location and general atmosphere made up for the expense.

Liked: Excellent location, very close to the beach, the old town and the main square (Place Massena). Supermarket nearby and a handy connnection to the buses and tram network. Bar is quite good, particularly happy hour. Very good free breakfast to offer, and good prices for dinner.

Disliked: Staff weren't very enthusiastic, no real vibe at the hostel - quite dead at times. 16 bed dorms aren't too bad, but queuing up for the shower and toilet facilites in the morning was a bit of a hassle.

Romantic getaway

09 July 2014

Liked: We liked the bar, breakfast was ok, and the walking tour was good.

Disliked: We couldn't believe that there was such a terrible plumbing issue in the bathroom which was also extremely dangerous given the potential electrical consequences. The night porter did not know what to do, fortunately it subsided after a time. The hostel did not formally apologise until requested by myself, and we have received no compensation.

Liked: I really liked the atmosphere and the free pasta with a drink!! Always good for travellers especially on a low budget!

Disliked: I thought at the time it was a bit short staffed it took ages to get a drink and we wanted some information at reception but there was only one person working and was really busy that weekend so maybe more staff but that's it!
