Stay here. Seriously. Everyone is friendly the staff is really inclusive and urges people to meet and spend time together, and is always willing to give suggestions on restaurants or things to do. A young people's' place for sure. By far the most fun and interesting environment I've experienced while traveling.
Good location, easily can walk to the beach and through the town.
Loved my stay at Victoria! Spent the first night in a six person private with friends from college. The room was in a separate apartment space 10 min from hostel base and FANTASTIC! Air conditioning, easy beach access, towels and the friendliest staff.It feels like you're welcomed into a family immediately. Great spot if you're traveling alone-awesome people and really sincere culture/atmosphere. Second night we stayed in two person room at hostel. No AC was the one downside.
As many reviewers have said, the atmosphere at this hostel is superb. This is largely thanks to the effort of the young, unbelievably friendly, helpful and energetic staff. If you want to get involved then you'll love it here. If you prefer being left in quiet serenity it may not be ideal but you'll feel welcome regardless. The hostel itself is rather cramped and average, the place is aged and the arrangement feels a bit ad-hoc, but is very well taken care of all things considered.
Victoria House Hostel is absolutely fabulous. It's very clean, with large rooms and a great kitchen where you can bring your own food in to cook or make hot beverages using the hostel's own supplies. I was also very pleased to find that there was a bathroom for each four-person dorm; as a consequence, there was hardly any wait for a shower in the morning! Val, the manager (and Vincent, the marketing manager) was very helpful and friendly. Would definitely come again!

I loved the location and how chill the staff was.
Very small hostel. The front guy was friendly but the bathroom was literally a show box and the light and shower were broken. Great location though!
Great hostel in Nice, where there are other hostels but are much lower quality
Nice is a lovely city and Val has made it even more lovely. Hope I can come back one day :)
Considering security , lockers should be available individually . I mean real lockers . Had some stuff i care about and got scared all the time . Good spot considering how close the beach was , People there and Val , jsut amazing go whenever ya want
I stayed here just one night but it was amazing experience! Valerio was really friendly and he recommende me so many good places. And also his partner Victor was really friendly and cute and adorable. Everyone was really friendly so if you want to meet a new friends or have fun, this place is perfect for that. Highly recommended!

Val is a great host, makes everyone feel welcome and included the second you check into the hostel. Myself and 3 other friends were actually upgraded to an amazing loft apartment just a 10 minute walk from the hostel which was incredible value for the same price of a 4 bed dormitory. My friends and I were shocked at the size of it - occasionally this apartment is given to larger groups who reserve at Victoria House. Our brief encounters in the hostel were warm - would highly recommend!
I would have to stay best hostel I have ever stayed in. If you are looking to meet new people this is the place to go. Perfect atmosphere for a solo traveller.
Great hostel for lonely travelers, with a great location. Valerio, the manager, is a great and kind person, always helping the guests

My one night was great, staff was very helpful and good security. Only complaint is that bed frame squeaked a lot when I moved. Would definitely come back for longer if I'm ever in Nice again.
Even though we only stayed one night in the Victoria House, we liked it a lot. Vlad made us feel like home, helped us get around the city and held on to our luggage after the check-out.
This has got to be the best hostel in all of France. Valerie is super welcoming and immediately shows you how to get around the city. He also spends time getting to know everyone in the hostel and organizing group events. The hostel is clean, well run and centrally located to the Nice beach and train station.
Val and the victor were extremely welcoming and made it a very nice transition to a new city. Thank you! Ciao!!!
Absolutely great hostel, super small and friendly every one is like a family. Bathrooms are a bit rage but that's the only downside. I would 100% go back
I don't remember his name but the guy that works there is really helpful, he tried to get everyone talking which was pretty cool. He gave good recommendation on sights and food aswell. The city itself was amazing but it's good to know that you will be going back to a hostel where the atmosphere is nice and friendly. I highly recommend this place and will be going back the next time I visit nice.
