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

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.

Hostel Smith is a very nice place in the Nice's Old Town. I have been there for 3 nights in June 2014 with my brother, and we have very enjoyed the place. Even if the hostel seams to be tiny from the reception, rooms are very nice and clean (cleaning every day). The price is very low for the location... More

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

Great welcoming, helpful staff, cool atmosphere and perfect location. If you are an easy going traveler, this is your place. You can count on friendly staff to give you some good advice on the things to do and places to see. I'm going to choose this hostel for my next stay in Nice.
