Firstly I want to say how friendly and helpful the staff are. They really take their time to help you, which may mean at times there is quite a queue for reception.
The hostel itself; it had a good atmosphere. We stayed in a 6 bed dorm and the room was clean and spacious. The beds and pillows were memory foam, really comfy!
We had a toilet and shower (in seperate rooms). The toilet was clean, the shower was 'alright', could have done with a bath mat for the floor so it didn't get so wet.
We had a locker each, bring your own padlock.
We were right next to the 'common room, which is a lovely, spacious, social room. It was however very noisy at night and being a light sleeper I couldn't sleep until the noise ended.
It is about a 15 minute walk (uphill) and a quicker walk down, from the tramstop. There is a free shuttle bus which is brilliant, although be prepared that it may not fit everybody in and have to do a few trips. The drivers did really well given some people got in and out of the bus without even a word of thanks.
We found this location fine, we did probably spend quite a bit on transport, however enjoyed the location of the hostel.
Cost: £40 for 2 nights during Cannes film festival and Monaco, bargain.
All in all, I would definitely stay again.
P.S, do not leave electrical items charging unsupervised, a member of our party got their ipod stolen. Lockers with power points in would be such a good idea. To be honest though if you are stupid enough to leave you valuables in view they probably will get stolen. The hostel can't be responsible for dishonest guests, however they could provide better facilities for the charging of electrical items.
