After backpacking Europe for 3 months this is the worst hostel I've stayed at because of the bed bug infestation I was subjected to, as well as the staff's condescending dismissal of my complaints and requests for a refund. I stayed here 3 nights with a friend in late August, and awoke after the first night to lots of bites,... More

This hostel is in a great location a few minutes walk from the train station. I booked a private room with ensuite and for what I paid for the Monaco Grand Prix weekend it was really unbeatable except for one detail. The room was basic but clean, a good size and came complete with a fridge. My only gripe was... More

Best thing about this place is the location. A 5 minute walk from the train station and short walk from the old town and beach. It's very central to everything. Rooms and beds are decent, each bed has a reading light and plug socket for charging phones/cameras/tablets Staff were friendly and there was a fridge in the room which was... More

The hostel is very simple and not too close from the beach, centre, old vile etc. Around 30 min walk in a kinda dodgy area... Didn't feel really comfortable walking around there at night when I had to look for dinner. Breakfast is the same as every other hostel, showers in the bedrooms. Helpful staff and you get your own...

This is a hostel. I stayed here in a 8 bed mixed dorm for 2 nights. Really clean, beds comfy, kitchen all you need, laundry nearby offering cheaper than hostel. Not a party hostel, people seemed to be long term here, quite a few French and majority male. I met one other female in the 2 days here. Staff are... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Easy to sleep. Quiet rooms. Unlike other places in Niza, the price includes an elementary breakfast. Unlike other backpackers, I am a seasoned one. Do not expect top quality and low fares during summer season or holidays... It was more than fine what I got for what I paid.... They have hot water and the... More

I don't know how this place is called a hotel and not a hostel. We've been staying in lots of hotels and hostels throughout Europe for the last 12 weeks and this was the most disgusting place we've ever stayed. We stayed in a 6 bed dorm, and when we first walked into the room it had the most disgusting,... More

The hostel was nice with really friendly staff. It was a refreshing change to see a hostel with an outside sun terrace and a kitchen plus fridges in the rooms. The beds are really comfy for a hostel. I would recommend it, just try book early as it gets very expensive the later you leave it.

Pastoral was the most expensive hostel we stayed at during our 1 month interrail, but also the most disappointing. It had OK rooms, beds and bathrooms, and the location was practical. Close to the train station, main streets and areas. Very pleasant staff. It did the job as a decent hostel, but I don't think I would stay here again.

Great location near the railway station. This hotel is clean and basic. There are no frills, except for a fridge in my room, nice touch. Two toilets shared amongst all non en-suite guests are not enough, especially when toilet paper runs out and is not replaced! Breakfast was all right, you have to pay for coffee. Staff were pleasant. I'd... More
