First off the bit that goes without saying. Nice is a fantastic place to spend a week if you get the chance. The weather is beautiful, the seafood is beautiful. It's just awesome. That said the time I spent in this hostel was unforgettable and two years later I finally have brought balance back to the universe by giving this... More

I stayed here the first time based on a recommendation in Lonely Planet, and found it to be one of the best hostels ever. It's a bit out of the centre of Nice, so it's quieter, and they run a shuttle to come pick you up from the tram stop - very convenient. The breakfast is standard but plentiful, and... More
