What travellers think
It is a pity that the last bus from the centre of Nice to the hostel leaves before eight p.m.. That means you can't enjoy Nice by night without having to pay for a taxi. Also, the breakfast is very basic. It would be a good thing if something sweet was offered alongside the baguette and cornflakes. The people working in the hostel are very kind and helpful, though.

This was a complicated stay. Only open 8am-10am then 5pm-11pm. There's only one bus which gets you up the hill where the hostel is and the last bus was at 7:30pm so you were stuck in the hostel from 8pm. I can walk for miles but that hill was impossible. On the first night I got lost and had to get a cab (after 3 refused to take me to the hostel as it was 'too far') that cost 37 Euros and then bang on the door at midnight until another traveller let me in with a night key he had put a 50 Euro deposit down for. I feel it would be a good idea if there was maybe a later night bus system run by the hostel, where one member of stuff go to a central location in Nice at around 10pm with a mini-van and pick up anyone still in Nice for a small fee. We had a system like this at university so everyone got home safe and it was a huge success. I certainly would never book this hostel again or recommend it purely on its awkward location.
