Very good hostel, near to Lafaiette galeries, close to bus stop. The bar is funny and the food is good. The staff is good, but they must speak local language too and be more nice, they speak english well.

I arrived in the morning and left at nearly midnight the next day but the hostel let me use the lockers and the showers so I had a great time there despite the one night stay. Very centrally located and fantastic staff (for the most part)!

Was a fantastic experience once again ! Always good atmosphere at the bar and the common area is very large which makes it fun and easy to meet people! Close to the beach and very central . Great stay , stayed two nights.

Really close to the beach! They have lovely staff that helped us through the France rail strike (long story!) and great activities to go on. A bit busy sometimes as it is a big hostel and very popular, also needs more plugs in certain rooms (16 bed room had a plug for everyone but 6 bed had 2 plugs in the whole room..) overall a good hostel!

Great place! We stayed in a 3 bed private ensuite, the bathroom even had a bathtub! Location is perfect, right in the heart of the city, across the street from Galleries Laffayette, a short walk away from the bus stop to Cannes, and pretty close to the Tram, if you want to go to the bus stop for Monaco. They do your laundry so you don't have to miss your whole day next to a washing and drying machine. Nice common area with a piano and a bunch of couches. Cool bar with TVs.

Stayed here for two nights and had a blast! Location is great, people were fun, and happy hour was really inexpensive! The only complaint I had was that there was only one toilet for 16 people to share but since we were there so little it was not a huge deal.

The hostel was in a great location, easy to get to from the train station and close to the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful! There is free breakfast and a staff member who comes around to help you plan your travels and answer questions. Also a fun, lively bar for nighttime hangouts and new friends. Would recommend highly!

This was a great hostel to stay at and in a fantastic location too!! Only down fall is that there is no cooking facilities and breakfast is very basic (but better than nothing). Highly recommended! I would definitely stay here again.

This was a pretty standard hostel. It had some cool stuff like a bar and a gym/sauna area. But we did pay close to 30 euros a night to sleep in a room with 17 other people which was kind of annoying. But other than that it was cool. Really continently located. Super informative staff.

Excellent hostel with tons of rooms, cheap food and drinks (happy hour every night 6-8pm). If you can book room 105 in the back it is separated from the rest and is a good one to stay in! This hostel doesn't have a fridge to hold any food but does have some cooking facilities. Very good location. They will tell you to go to Wayne's bar for discoing but there are tons of better ones around as well.

Staff were full of tips for things to do and the hostel was so close to the beach and old town! Will definitely stay there again if I have the chance!

Looks like a good place to stay if you want to live in dorms, but the privates are in a separate building which is still under renovation and there's dust and paint everywhere, which is an extremely unpleasant environment to sleep in, can't believe that they're hosing guests in this building. Staff is quite helpful when I let them know about this and are willing to help me switch to a dorm/ another room. Privates in hostels nearby for the same price are much better as we switched second day.

Mostly I enjoyed my stay. Location, atmosphere & facilities are just what the budget traveller needs. Despite this, some of the staff were rude & begrudgingly assisted with any queries. This reflects poorly on the name of the hostel & the staff members that were helpful & friendly. Just as an aside, the hostel bar could operate with more than one staff member. It was just too busy for one person alone which made for a long wait to be served.

Looking for a place to stay in Nice? Don't look any further. The Villa Saint Exupery Beach is a great hostel/ hotel. The setup is very professional . They have dormstyle rooms or private rooms, each one of them very clean and with their own bathrooms. The staff is also good and accomodating, espacially the blond girl from Slowakija ( forgot her name :-)) Also the location is great,very close to the beach and about a ten minutes walk to the station.

Location was good. Unfortunately that was the only good thing about this place. Staff was slow and inefficient. The check-in time was 2pm on their webpage but I waited for more than 2 hours and finally checked in at 4:30pm. The ceiling of the shower was covered by mold. Two girls of my dorm room requested to change room. And for my last morning, I woke up and found a guy slept in our room that night even though it was a female dorm. Some girl clearly brought this guy back. Felt upset and unsafe.
