Perfect location - in the heart of old nice. Few steps from Colline de Chateau's belvedere. The hostel's building / stairs and common areas are quite old, however, the rooms are renovated and the toilets are bright and tidy! I would definetely stay there again!

Good value for the dorms. Good location. A little too noisy outside our room (but it was Friday night in the old town) Helpful and friendly staff. Showers were great. One of the duvets smelled pretty terrible and filled the room. Not for fussy people as there is no gender specific shower rooms and the two toilets had a hole... More

There is NO better place to stay in Nice!! Look forward to a warm welcome, perfect location, awesome staff, some family atmosphere, tasty breakfast in the lovely kitchen where you are welcome to prepare your own meals or just sit in the evenings and meet other guests. You'll be amazed what people you'll meet there that will share your best... More

This is a good place to stay for young budget travellers. The location couldn't be more perfect, in the heart of the old city, close to everything yet reasonably calm at night since it is in a very narrow street. The rooms are very simple, as are the beds (metal framed bunk beds, quite thin mattresses and squeaky but decent).... More

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
