Friendly young staff! Amazing wifi and computer access. Fantastic location and easy to get to from airport. I was in a four bed room and it was very small. Plus, there were only two lockers. However downstairs in the basement there were lots more so you could keep your bag there after checking out. Breakfast nothing to drool about but that's nothing new. I think they could brush up the cleaning of the dorms. It looked like the carpets under the bed hadn't been vacuumed in months. Would recommend

Greeting from Villa St Exupery. Thanks for your feedback. We see you mentioned our fantastic location. We are very proud of our location in Nice, and believe we are the best situated hostel in Nice for backpackers. Also, Villa St Exupery is currently in a renovation process of removing all the carpets in our rooms and replacing them with brand new wood flooring. Thankyou for recommending us to your friends, and we hope to see you again here in Nice.


Clean, fun hostel. Great bar with a simple but complimentary tasty dinner with the purchase of a drink. Easy to meet people, even in life season. We enjoyed our stay.

Greeting from Villa St Exupery. Thanks for you review, it's nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found our hostel clean and fun. These are two qualities we work very hard at in keeping a high standard. We see you mention the pub crawl. The pub crawl in Nice is not run by Villa St Exupery, so it is not our staff involved. It is an outside company for which we advertise within our hostel. We shall be speaking with them regarding your feedback however.


I loved the pasta and beer deal. Booya.

Greetings from Villa St Exupery. We see you mentioned our pasta and beer deal. We are very proud of the many great free services we offer to all our guests at Villa St Exupery. We are a hostel who offers not only a free breakfast, but also a free pasta dinner, and beers for just €1. At Villa St Exupery we believe we offer the best range of free services to backpackers on the French Riviera. Thankyou very much for your kind words, and we would really like to see you again in the future.


The Staff were Exceptional. Really outstanding. As was the general atmosphere, location and vibe. The only dissappointment was the dorms themselves, wherein the beds just all seemed in not the best spots , or were a bit noisy or slightly damp/dull. Which felt a shame as everything else felt really Great. Not moaning. Just upfront. Overall THANKS Nice and St.Exupery...for i had an outstandingly enjoyable time there. ("Whats essential is invisible to the eye" as the GREAT A.St.Exupery would say.

Greetings from Villa St Exupery. Our numerous and large common areas are a great place to meet people which creates a social vibe to the hostel. Over the winter period we will be making renovations in our rooms to brighten them up and make them feel much more comfortable. Thanks very much once again for your review and your kind words. Great to see you are familiar with the great talent of Antoine St Exupery.


A very good hostel with great location.

Greeting from Villa St Exupery. Thanks for posting your review about our hostel. It's really nice to read that you liked the hostel. We're proud of it too. Thanks.


Great hostel. Great little bar. The walking tour was awesome, really explored things in Nice you'd never find out. Thank you Emilie. Only place in a Nice u should stay.


Have to bring your own padlock for the lockers. Beds are first in first served. Bathrooms are really average two showers and a toilet all in the same room. Averagely clean. Overall pretty good hostel though and nice staff.


free pasta with a drink is pretty decent and the bar and common areas are pretty good and the hostel has a good atmosphere despite being a bit hotelish in terms of how big it is. the rooms are pretty squashy, not a lot of room for you things but it's decent. overall i'd recommend this hostel as the location is good and the facilities are really decent despite the rooms.


the staff were lovely, really helpful and really supportive when something goes wrong. The set up of the kitchen, Lounge room and bar/restaurant is awesome it brings everyone together. In the dorms the beds are good but The shower set up in the dorms was fine for me but because some people are very private they would lock the door if using one shower when there are 2 cubiclea


The room and the sheets were dirty. No locks for the cupboard. Room was ok for two nights but I wouldn't go again.

Hello. At Villa St Exupery we try to uphold the highest standards of cleanliness. However, should anything not be up to expectations, we really appreciate you telling us and allowing us to put it right. There are free lockers in the rooms for guests to use with their own padlock. Should anyone not have a padlock, they can puchase one from the hostel vending machine. Enjoy your travels.


Really enjoyed my stay here. Location was great and staff were really friendly and helpful. The sauna downstairs is a nice surprise. Would stay here again


Nice hostel, the location is perfect, close to everything. Facilities are amazing, and the bar is great with the happy hour and free pasta every night. Staff is ok. The room i was in was way too small for 5 people and had no window so it would get so hot that it was really hard to.sleep.for everybody. But besides that, everything was ok.
