Free shuttle was greatly appreciated to get to hostel in warm heat. Staff were extremely friendly, and always ready to advise on day trips and excursions. Room was good size, and clean. Food was amazing - loved the cheap ribs!! Merci!!

We had booked three nights. Room was not ready when we arrive after the standard check in time.
The room booked, a twin room was so crampled and was full of cobwebs handing off the ceiling. I was attacked all night by bed bugs.
Staff however were friendly and helpful.
Perched on top of a hill was not too great... tough going after a long day sight seeing. Small van to transport from tram stop also meant waiting at times for 3 runs before you got on.

This hostel ROCKS!! My partner and I have just finished travelling around Europe and this hostel was the best...let me tell you why. It is very modern, funky and clean the chapel room is great. There is free interent and most of the time you wait no longer then 20 mins durin peak time to get on. There is a large kitchen that guests can use...cause we all know how expensive it is to dine out, especially in nice, but they also have a cook who cooks in the same kitchen serving a delicious set meal or pizza with toppings of your choice for about 7 Euro... and the food is so good plus you watch him prepare it in the kitchen so you know its fresh. The hostel is also real easy to get to its just a 7 min tram ride from the main station and you get off at Casino (there food shopping place like Coles or Tescos) and they have a private bus coming round every 25 mins to pick people up, but if you want to walk it takes about 20 mins.
The slight down sides to this hostel are it is expensive compared to other hostels we stayed at but if u r willining to share in a big room with lots of people of course it would be cheaper, I stayed in a private room. The shuttle bus can be quite hard to get on as sometimes people dont wait their turn and jump que but I only had that Problem a couple of times and if the driver cant get you on they normally tell other people that you were here first (just make s ong and dance about it) They also have a curfew to be inside at 10:00 or 11:00 which is not to bad cause the chapel room is huge and a great place to hang out in. Also if u want a smoke u can go outside just cant hang out there for ages.
I also saw several families there with kids running round the place which was fine except the kids were the ones who would sit on a computer for hours so that was annoying but obviously a good place for families too.
All in All great experience wish I was back there.

I've been staying here for several days now and have had a blast. As a solo traveller it has been an especially great place to connect with other travellers. The food is really terrific, by far the best I've ever experienced at a youth hostel. Lastly, the hostel staff - particularly the lovely office staff, Emily and Carol - have been extremely accomodating and an excellent source of information. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone planning to visit Nice or the surrounding region.
