Myself and 3 friends stayed here for 1 night when we were in Nice for a football match during Euro 2016. We had a 4 person room to ourselves which consisted of a triple bunk and a broken camp bed. We paid 50 Euros each for what can only be described as worse than a prison cell. The triple bunk...

Went there just for one night. The possitive side: it's cheap. The downside: the rooms are very small and crowdy, we had to pay in cash because the concierge didn't knew how to use the card machine, we made a booking for two and she insisted it was for only one person (even we we showed her the mail with...

Cheap, organized, fairly clean hostel. Room has electronic locks and air conditioning. Compared to other hostels in Nice, it's clean and very organized. It's very close to the train station. Overall it may have minor faults, but considering it's a cheap hostel, I'd give it 5/5.

Pros: its fairly central, it has a nice terrace and above all: Its cheaper than most other hostels in nice. Cons: The beds are squeaky. The bathrooms are disgusting. There was a small water leak. there is no real kitchen, just a bunch of weird pizza-ovens that dont work very well. Breakfast consists only of two types of cereal and...

The man at the front desk is extremely rude and unhelpful. Upon checking in I was told that my booking was not valid because I booked through booking.com. I was told off for forgetting the code to the front door even though all he has to do is buzz you in from his office. I can't stress enough how bad...

It was my first time visiting Nice, France- I booked my stay through the hostel's website. I was a safe, relaxing and pleasant stay. The owner was a very nice gentleman and I had very friendly roommates too. The beach is not too far way, you can even take a tram and its close to Monaco, Cannes and even Marseille...

If this place is going to be your first experience travelling - your diving in the shallow end. Some may think the area dodgy with the one sex shop one block away, to them I would suggest trying a backpackers in central Bangkok first and whilst your there go and catch the ping pong show. The Altea hotel ? I...

3 cockroaches, dirt in the bathroom, no lockers! not quite sure what we paid for, the signs in the room say take your own trash out, take your sheets off the bed and take them downstairs, dont wet the bathroom floor (give us a towel then to soak it up maybe). We had a fridge in our room which was...

One dirty toilet/shower (not separate) for every floor, extremely busy reception area, & guy in our 4bed mixed dorm smoking out the window and snorting coke (& talking to himself into the wee hours). Worst hostel experience of my life. Spend a little extra and opt for a cheap hotel

The location is very quiet, but relatively central. The outside of the building is beautiful and also the floor is nice. There was one bathroom (including one shower and one toilet) for 16 people. Needless to say that this caused several problems. The rooms were quite small and there was a lack of space. When I was asking for help...
