The hostel is too far from everything and shuttle bus does not run before 8am or from 12 to 5pm which means if you are leaving to the airport with lugguage at these times you have to walk a good 15 mins and take the tram before reaching the airport bus or train stop. The place is very dirty with used cups and food containers lying everywhere especially on the computer area. The towels have to be hired on deposit and they are very old, from originally white to be grey or black. The bed is terrible as it is unstable and it moves and gives terrible noise as I make a slight turn. The mattress is sagging. I booked a room with private shower but instead given one with shared facilities with no mention or apology as if it does not matter even though I have the confirmed reservation. The food in the restaurant is terrible and very salty. There is no 24 hr reception. If you are likely to leave early in the morning and do not want to pay around 40 euros for taxi, it is better to stay in town as it works out much cheaper and at least the bed or towel will be more acceptable. If you can only afford a dormitory bed, then make sure you don't leave in early morning or in the afternoon unless you do not mind to walk such a long journey with your luggage. The ttoilet and shower are in general very wet or with rubbish every where. It seems that they do not have full time staff to run the place at all and so everything is so sub standard. It really ruins my stay in Nice for those few days.
