This hostel was downright cozy. I felt really at home. The rooms are colorful and light, with big open windows. I never left old town. I spent most of my trip just sitting on the upstairs terrace talking to other guests and staff. They have one of the nicest hostel kitchens I've ever used. It felt like staying in someone's...

I stayed there for almost a week there. i was planning to stay for couple of days but the place had such a great atmosphere that I decided to extend my stay for a bit longer. Staff and the owner Frank were awesome and always friendly. Kitchen was always organized and even though sometimes it might be full of people,...

Hostel Smith is in a great area, close to the beach and many restaurants. The hostel could get quite busy at times, but made for some fun nights drinking wine on the terrace. Lorenzo (worked at the hostel) spoke English perfectly, and was able to help us with any questions or problems we had! Thanks again Lorenzo you rock! Hostel...

I stayed at Hostel Smith for 2 nights in June last year and was covered in bed bugs. They promised to reimburse my costs of EUR 244 as had saved for a year for this holiday. Despite ringing daily, and promises, no money was ever received. We would NOT recommend this Hostel if you can stay anywhere else. It is...

Good price, free bread and coffee in the morning. Very crowded sometimes, and internet did not work properly. No toilet paper on the bathrooms late night (happened twice). However, friendly staff and well located.

Stayed here for two nights, whilst backpacking between France, Monaco and Italy. I flew into Nice and took public transport to Hostel Smith. It was so easy to take the bus from the airport to the Promenade des Anglais, and walk to the hostel from there. It's old town centrality makes this so. The staff are extremely friendly and hospitable,...

It was a bit hard to find the hostel, as my gps got a bit lost in the old town.. so many little streets, but once I got there I wouldn't need it again. Great location, with shops, la plage and the castle so near you. Bus stop and train station whithin walkinh distance to other places. I have gone...

The staff were incredibly friendly and the place overall had a positive vibe. However, the beds and bedding weren't the best, the showers and toilets were not always clean or stocked with toilet paper, and the lights to go up the stairs didnt work very well. The location was nice in the old town but it was a little close...

The location is really good, right in the centre of Nice and close to supermarkets, the Promenade and the beach. The staff is really nice and very helpful. There is a small breakfast with bread and jam and coffee in the morning. The terrace is also very nice! You won't get a hostel like this in old Nice for that...

Amazing place to stay while in the French Riviera. Located in the middle of Old Nice, 3 min walk to the Promenade. Great shopping & dining footsteps from the front door of the hostel. Very clean, safe, & welcoming. Owner & staff go above and beyond to make sure you have most necessities on site.
