I travelled with my two sons and booked Hostel Smith due to the "family room". The family room is a couple of blocks from the main hostel and you are completely on your own. The room is old, shabby, sheets and bedding are from the 70s decade, you will not sleep well because the room is either stiflingly hot (with the windows closed) or exceptionally noisy with the partiers in the streets and at the bars (windows open). My son even slept on a pile of clothes on the floor because the tile was cool. The bathroom has been recently renovated but fixed so that you can't shut the door if you are showering! Only 2 benefits: location in Old Nice is convenient and there was a tiny washing machine in the room (although it leaked). During 5 weeks of travel, this was the only lodging disappointment.
