Hostel Smith is in a great location in the old town of Nice. Staff was very friendly and helpful when it came to questions about the city, and it seemed to attract a very friendly crowd of backpackers. Stayed multiple nights. Accommodations were adequate and the kitchen space was small but worked well as a gathering area.

Hostel Smith is definitely the best hostel if you go with a group of friends. Unfortunately we didn’t get the chance...

Great welcoming, helpful staff, cool atmosphere and perfect location. If you are an easy going traveler, this is your place. You can count on friendly staff to give you some good advice on the things to do and places to see. I'm going to choose this hostel for my next stay in Nice.

All the bad reviews happened while they were doing renovations, I went in September and truly enjoyed my stay! The room were a bit noisy, yes, but you are located in the heart of the old Nice so it is to be expected! The hostel was clean enough, staff was wonderfully helpful. They gave us a lot of good advise...

I've been at Hostel Smith in June 2013 and I really didn't like that place. The hostel is in a residential building, the reception is not 24h and the rooms were not clean at all. I heard some guests claiming because their room were more people than beds. On the other hand, the hostel is well located and you can...

Stayed here with a friend and booked an 8 bed room but was placed in a 12 bed dorm with additional cots laid out. Room was fairly nice but the bathroom was very dirty and kept running out of toilet paper. Shower doors were see-through and as a girl I did not feel comfortable using these with all the men...
