It was an ok hostel. The facilities were ok, the dorms were a bit too small and so was the kitchen. The breakfast consisted of bread with jam and coffe. The wifi only worked in the reception.The staff could have been more friendly and helpful. The location was good, not too far away from the train station, in the heart... More

The hostel itself is very near to the sea and the nightlife is very amazing! The staffs were very friendly and fluent in English. The problems are the Wi-Fi is super slow, it can be quite noisy during the night, (the hostel is above a bar) and the shower doors are see through, which can be quite uncomfortable.

I stayed here with a friend in April.The staff were very helpful and could speak good english.We had a room seperate from the main building.(Only a 2 min walk).It was basic but clean and ideal for an overnight stopover to visit the city.I would recomend this hostel and would stay here again.

Hostel Smith is in a great location in the old town of Nice. Staff was very friendly and helpful when it came to questions about the city, and it seemed to attract a very friendly crowd of backpackers. Stayed multiple nights. Accommodations were adequate and the kitchen space was small but worked well as a gathering area.

My friends and I stayed in Hostel Smith in Nice and we had a really splendid time here. Our room was nice and big. The price was low and the location was really incredible! Right in the city centre! Hostel Smith is definitely the best hostel if you go with a group of friends. Unfortunately we didn’t get the chance... More
