Amazing location! Near to the lovely beach and on such a beautiful little street. Great friendly atmosphere throughout the hostel. Good facilities, kitchen etc and good showers and toilets. Only downside is the wifi - mine didn't work til the second day and my friend's phone didn't connect at all. However it did work for some people! Would recommend this... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. First about the good things. The hostel is located in the centre of Nices old town and the beach is quickly and easy accessible by foot. The (changing) receptionists are friendly and helpful. The beds and bedsheets are clean. But still there are some points that make this hostel unstayable. The major point is the... More

Reading reviews of this hostel prior to getting there did make me a bit cornered about my stay there. However upon our arrival at the hostel we met Frank the owner of the property. He was really hospitable, friendly and very knowledge about the area and nearby places to visit. He surely made our stay more welcoming. The location of... More

I stayed here for 3 nights, I slept so badly due to drinking in rooms all night and music. Floors although cleaned every afternoon, was covered in beer puddles and rubbish every night. Location was ideal for us, but I would have rather have had an extra walk and a few hours of sleep.

The people who work here are wonderful, in particular Frank who knows EVERYTHING about where to go, places to eat and interesting facts The traditional and delicious French jams as part of the free breakfast are a bonus, and the hostels location in "old nice" which is the best part of nice, is perfect!

Booked a 7 night stay in a 2 bed private en-suite room. Arrived on Wednesday evening to be told our room had been double booked. We were shown a tiny room with a bunk bed in it. The guy on reception said it was for one day only. Went back to reception the next day and another staff member didn't... More

Hostel Smith was very clean and comfortable, and great location in Vielle Ville, all for a great price. We were especially impressed with the clean and new showers! Extremely helpful staff who showed us places to go and which buses to take! The only downside is it's a little hard to find.

The location of this hostel is absolutely brilliant - right in the middle of Old Nice, near to the beach and the bus/tram. The accommodation is VERY basic, and it can be very noisy. Cheap and cheerful!
