This hostel is in the worst location, not only is it far from the centre (about 20-30 mins tram ride) its also situated at the top of a massive hill, so in the hot summer months walking up the road to the hostel is a NIGHTMARE. I needed to go and buy water from the supermarket and I had to do a min trek to get to it, I guess it's ok if you like a work out but I certainly did not like the mini workout every day. Breakfast is simple, bread cereal etc nothing special. I stayed on the top floor in the twin room Very very basic beds, shower was small but ok, curtain was useless water went everywhere but whatever you can just put towels to stop it getting too wet. The reception staff, some were polite and helpful but some were just stuck up and arrogant so it's 50/50 who you deal with. Thr dinners are lovely and very reasonable about €6, great chef. The kitchen facility is good as well. My room was cleaned once in 10 days but it's okay I think you can get sheets etc from downstairs and do it yourself. Overall I think this hostel is overpriced as its certainly nothing special and the location is so awful, I would have preferred to stay in another hostel more central to nice, if you staying a week I would recommend the one week tram pass as paying a euro everyone can be excessive as I was paying up to €7 a day. I recommend this hostel for younger people definitely as it is not a place to relax at all, gets very loud and hectic and is purely for fun I felt.
