I stayed here for a few weeks while looking for a job in yachting at the Seaside house.
The place is in a great location in the old town. It's 15 mins to the train station and around 5 minutes to the port and the beach.
The rooms are clean and you only share with 2 other people which is great. Big shares kitchen with good cooking facilities and an outdoor area to eat or sit in the sun.
There are 2 computers with free Internet and free printing. Only 1 of the computers printed while I was there which was annoying as Sometimes you had to wait for hours to get your turn. I think there should be more computers for the amount of people staying there.
The place is advertised as having a couple with insider knowledge of the industry who can help you with your cv and who run talks etc. I chose this crew house for this reason. Unfortunately Jen and Jason do not live on site and I did not meet either of them for my first 2 weeks in Antibes. On my 3rd week Jason did a free talk which was useful but I would have benefited much more from hearing that info in my first few weeks in Antibes. That was my biggest let down about the grapevine.
Apart from that, I had an excellent stay, met lots of great people and got an amazing job on a superyacht!!
