I stayed in Hostel Smith for four nights while I was backpacking around Europe, grateful for its cheap prices - I paid €54 for my stay, which I deemed to be quite reasonable! I initially found the hostel with some difficulty: after taking careful directions from the taxi driver, I then found myself having to ask a waiter for further... More

We have a very nice time at the hostel. They offered us coffe when we arrived, and the breakfast was nice. The staff was kind and gave us indications about the city and the night life, according to our style. Clean, small, cheap and confortable.

We got upgraded to a private room, due to it being the off season, for the same price. That was nice. The staff waa very friendly. It is located in a great area. However the security is lacking. The outside doors didnt close, our door locked but could easily be broken into. The bathrooms were not that great. It was... More

To sum it up, the experience I made with this hostel was terrible. We came there, reserved for 5 persons in a 6-person room. What we got was a 14 people-dormitori! (because of any security), but still paid the same. The owner said there will be only 1 to 2 people more in the room, so we will have it... More

I stayed at Hostel Smith as a very last minute stay in Nice, as I had to take a flight out from there the next morning. I arrived there at 9.30 at night to find that the photos and reviews that I read online did not meet with the reality that existed. Being late I did not want to try... More

2 of my friends and I stayed at Hostel Smith recently on a trip to Nice. I was a little worried when I walked in, because it does not look like the safest or cleanest building when you walk in. The owners were FABULOUS and so helpful, giving us recommendations for nightlife in the town as well as the city... More

Really great hostel, lovely new bathroom and bedrooms that are kept very clean. The owner's are lovely and were able to give us great tips on things to do, not just in Nice but for the rest of our journey too! The hostel is situated in a great part of town, and the surrounding nightlife was amazing

This was a well located hostel to the beach and lots of cafe's and restaurants. I stayed in a 14 bed room which was fairly spacious to say the amount of people were in it. However there were only 2 plugs in the whole room and only 2 showers and 1 toilet. There was no air con and because we... More

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
