I had a fantastic night in Nice. The old town is amazing! The coast is gorgeous. The city is special. The people are genuine. This hostel was a great place to stay, affordable and super friendly staff. They make sure their guests are happy. I'm pleased with my experience here! Thanks Frank!

It was a last minute booking, my fault that I had not done a proper research before coming here. I stayed in a room for 6. But for a nice and welcoming guy at the reception there is nothing nice about this hostel. It is old, untidy, dirty, noisy and inconvenient. 1) Long dark stairs to go up - mind...

To start off the location of the hostel is excellent, I was actually staying at a different place further outside of town and decided to switch here after a night, and I definitely did not come to regret this decision. The hostel includes a proper breakfast, as well as kitchen open to guests, and there are many common areas where...

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...
