I really love this part of Nice. Busy and pretty with lots of restaurants and shops. The hostel rooms are clean enough although it's a little difficult to find. My main problem with the place was the lack of a central meeting area for people in the hostel. This would really be a shame if you were visiting alone but... More

I was really happy about the beautiful under-the-roof terrace where I could rest and read during the day and which was full of lively backpackers' exchange every evening. The hostel is clean with new furniture, very friendly and helpful owners and staff and located marvelously 3min walk from the seaside in the heart of the charming historical old town and... More

I was unsure about this hostel at first, but it was better than expected. Rooms were quite clean and so we're bath room, common room etc. At 20 euro a night it was worth it. Good location 2 min to beach. Breakfast is bread with jams which is ok. Lucy who works there is lovely too - she gave me... More

The rooms were fine but there was no place to store your bag, only a little safe for the most important things. The bathrooms were pretty clean so that was nice. The kitchen was the worst part! So dirty and untidy everyone had their stuff every where. The who place just seemed like it was run by backpackers who didn't... More

DO NOT STAY HERE!! My partner and I were forced to leave this hostel at 2am after finding an infestation of bed bugs in our beds. We told reception who offered us a refund or a new bed, we took the refund and left, mind you there were 3 other girls in our room that they did not notify about... More

Good location, free breakfast and wifi, nice washrooms. The staff are really friendly and if you ask they will try to accommodate for you :) Hostel is clean and has a nice little roof top terrace. Lots of travellers coming through so you get to meet loads of new people. A bit disorganised. No one at the reception between 8am... More

Appalling hostel and easily the worst I've stayed in. It was very old and dirty and noisy. It was overcrowded and in a 12 bunk bed dorm they also put mattresses on the floor and in the corridor for people to stay on. Bathroom absolutely shocking too. Wifi very poor signal as well and pretty much pointless. Only good thing... More

Just stayed there with 8 friends during the Euros. Cheapest in town but you get what you pay for. Great location, which is noisy at night, but perfect for exploring Nice. Bring your own bedding if possible as the beds are disgusting. Staff friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for 3 nights in June. The ONLY thing it has going for it is that it is close to the beach and central to Old Town. The rooms are not kept clean. The pillows are as flat as a pancake. I could not connect to the wifi at all, but have not had a problem anywhere else... More
