Thank you Altair hostel for the good price and service you offer to low budget travelers. I read some really bad comments about this hostel and honestly these people must have had a big problem with the owner or the staff because I didn't see anything that can allow someone so many mean things. As I'm concerned many thanks to... More

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!
