We were three girls stying there for two nights. It was the worst hostel ever, and one of us has travelled the world. The pink lady only understood french, and kept talking though we said we only spoke english. A guy working there were stalking us, and said we had to talk real english, though he did not understand us. The sheets were dirty, and the "kitchen" horrible. I would never eat anything made there. The straff were smelly and like a 100 years old. People were sleeping in our beds when we came, and they had to move. In our room there were beds everywhere, so we could not move around. I had to sleep next to a couple. Just don't do this to yourself. Nice were a beautifull place though.

We stayed here in early August, even though there is no A/C, this place is ok for budget travellers....There are some rooms which are very spacious and very good for a group of 4-5 persons, For just 17 euros a night this is a worth option.

The facility is managed and maintained by two very old ladies themselves ,Guess at age of 75-80 they still try to keep every visitor happy and provide as much facilities as they can( Washing,Kitchen,Microwave,Internet)...this is appreciable. Recommend this Hostel if you are on very tight budget and can sustain few mosquitos in summer time. Location is another plus point of this hostel. It is on one of the main streets of Nice and you can walk till beach with in 20-25 mins.

I was in Marseille and then I went to Nice looking for a place to hang out, to kickit and let loose...and oh boy, was this the place for that!

Once you get over the roaches and the dirtyness of the place...which for me took 10 minutes, you will have an awesome time. Those who do not like to party should better leave...this, is the party hostel and it belongs in the top ten underground list for hostels.
The people I met there were the best and from all over the world! If you can survive there the first day you are going to have so much fun. When I was there we partied for seven days straight...my most memorable moment with the friends I met there, was swiming in the mediterranean like at 2 in the morning.

If you like to drop it like it's hot this is the place.

as for noise...just ask the lady for one of the studios for two or three people and she will hook you up.

Filthy, absolutly disgusting. We booked on hostel bookers or something and didnt realise until we got there what we had let outselves into. The pink lady is mad and not hygenically inclined. I woke up with a cockroach on my FACE. There are no private rooms, we were sleeping in a corridor. Filthy filthy filthy. A nice hostel downstairs however!!! Do NOT stay here!!!!

We booked a room at Faubourg Montmartre via Hostelbookers[--] and at the time the reviews on the web site seemed to be ok.

However, it failed to live up to our expectations. Here is a summary of our experience:

> Our so called private room was the only thoroughfare to another group's room (so we got woken up during the middle of the night when they arrived home)
> There is no security - in addition to having another group staying in the ajoining room we were unable to lock our room and came home more than once to random people in our room. When we asked the "Pink Lady" where to put our valuables she said she would put them in her fridge for us
> Our private bath room was not private at all and occupants of other rooms came into our room to use it
> The room and bathroom were extremely dirty
> We were all bitten by bed bugs who, based on the graffiti in the rooms, appear to be long term occupants
> There were cockroaches in our room (which we also saw in the resturant down stairs run by the same people)
> At one stage we thought we saw bugs jumping on the top bunk - on closer inspection it was drops from the ceiling which was leaking. When we told the Pink Lady she explained it as the swedes upstairs having a shower and did nothing further. We consider that we were lucky not to have our video camera or computer on the bunk at that time
> On our last night the Pink Lady turned the water off in our room as it was leaking to the level below, and we were told to use the bathrooms in other rooms. It is the first time I have ever preferred to use a public toilet over the one where I am staying
> The Pink Lady does not speak any English so any concerns you have with the above cannot be easily communicated to her (note we had a french speaker with us and still we consider our concerns were not addressed at all)

We appreciate that the above may not bother some people, but we would have liked to have been informed of the above conditions before we booked to stay there.

We have been travelling for one month through France, Spain and Portugal and this is by far the worst hostel we have stayed in.
