very nice owner, seems like a family owned hostel. while the only downsides were that it's located just beside train tracks (I am a heavy sleeper so wasn't affected that badly) and the lack of security lockers.
The Hostel: A lovely art-deco building with a marble entrance, lift, tiled corridors and communal kitchen and terrace. Located in the centre of Nice, less than a 10 minute walk from the main train station.

very nice owner, seems like a family owned hostel. while the only downsides were that it's located just beside train tracks (I am a heavy sleeper so wasn't affected that badly) and the lack of security lockers. otherwise, quite a neat place near the station in a quiet area that's accesible to the beach by a 15min walk or 3 tram stops. note that you have to pay 1 extra euro per blanket per stay if u want it.
