4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here with a couple of friendsand reallyhad a good stay.Philippe the owner is a greatguy,helped us a lot to what to do in Nice and where to go and avoid the expensive touristic places. His hostel is really the cheapest place in town and really offers a great service for the price you pay.

Compliments for what this hostel does: very competitive prices, good professional staff, great location (in a pedestrian area just in front of a beautiful church), good facilities (common kitchen with everything you need to cook), simple but clean air-conditioned rooms with new bathrooms. I just have to add that I read the bad comments about this place and regarding my... More

Location; Ideal, right on the main street, a 5 minute walk from the train station and a 10 minute walk from the beach. Supermarkets, or fresh fruit and veg markets surrounding the hostel. View of the church just beside. You get what you pay for, it's cheap, it's a decent place to sleep, create a basic dinner and visit the... More

Good hostel for the price you pay! Nice rooms, good view. A lot of people complaining - you get what you pay for. Its the cheapest hostel in Nice. But I have no complains, stayed for one night and met some cool people!

You always end up getting what you pay for. This place was incredibly cheap compared to the rest of Nice, but there was no expense spent on the hostel itself. Only 2 toilets for ~70 beds and no sinks in either toilet so you have to go back to the room for that. Pros: Cheap, very close to the station,... More

The hostel is clean and tidy. ordinary rooms with new bathrooms, a common area with free use computers, a common kitchen where you can do your own cooking, free wifi which... More

We were staying there for 2 nights during Euro 2016, firstly they cocked up our booking and eventually got it sorted but not the way we had envisaged. My friend described the hostel as a toilet! There was no air conditioning and the place was like a sweat box!

I first booked here for the very low price compared to others in Nice and was surprised to see what you get for your money. It's not a super beautiful place but just a simple and basic hostel where you get free wifi, a common kitchen with everything you need to make your own meals, a common room with a... More
