We booked three nights at short notice, it was priced well for a hostel in France but certainly not for what you get. Small grubby rooms, there was plenty of floor space for a mop to wash it. Wifi does not work in rooms. Locker is only big enough for valuables. Reception lady was pleasant but you do need cash.

The location of the hostel is good, but that is the only good thing about this place. The reception is closed during off-hours so you cannot check-in early morning. The rooms are not well maintained, neither are the electric sockets. There was one kitchen, but it was not clean and the bad odour forced you to move out of sight... More

I'd rather spend a little bit more money through airbnb rather than staying here. Offer poor service, bf and didn't clean the sheets. The terrace is next to a little courtyard full of pigeons and consequently really gross. I wouldn't stay there again. Staff wasn't very welcomed, didn't have the possibility to pay by card.

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst travelling with a friend and unfortunately it wasn't the best. Clean bed and sheets which was great, but other than that everything was in quite bad condition. Sockets were pulled out of the walls and so the wires were all exposed. They still worked but we were quite nervous plugging in power supplies. Bathroom... More

The hostel is situated in a bad area of the city although central. It ha a a bas frequentation, bad people are around the hostel and me and my friend were very scared to return at the hostel in the evening. The rooms are very hot, and there's no solution to alleviate the temperature. We will never return there!

The hostel is in a good location and the rooms are ok, but the service is bad if any problems occur. The wall plugs in our room didn't work properly and caused a short circuit in some of our electronical items, and they broke completely, didn't work at all. When we told about that to the man at the reception,... More

There is bad service. Air conditioning, wifi and plugs not worked. Room is very hot and locker are so small. Only one toilet in the whole hotel and there is no washbasin. The kitchen is very dirty. The staircase smell tobacco and it is very dirty.

To be honest, I didn't expect much since you usually get what you pay for. But this time I feel completely screwed over. To start with, the hostel it's completely dirty with who knows what going around. Secondly, the staff has very little interpersonal skills, so they treat you like your not worth their time pretty much. Last, but not... More

Really basic room set up, functional yet questionable security. Altair is situated in a central part of Nice but not necessarily in a Nice place, excuse the pun. Hostel staff were welcoming and pleasant but were void of explaining the ins and outs of Nice but it didn't matter because we only stayed there for the beach.

We booked 4 beds in a 6er dorm for 3 nights, which was surprisingly clean and modern, compared to the outsides of the building. The shower was super nice, and for us the room was big enough, we only spent time there sleeping basically. The surroundings never bothered us, and the building seemed safe. Of course some beggars on the... More
