Everything was perfect except the dirty sheets. Mine was fine but the sheets on other beds had some stains... But it didnt seem like there would he bed bugs. Excellent place for low budget travellers

We would like to make a few comments of our own.There are no bed bugs in the hostel,and we don't think it's fair to write specutalive comments like this in your review, which can be damaging to the hostel. We have proffessionals who check our rooms and hostel regularly.

Great location and good breakfast. The rooms were clean, and the attached bar had good drink specials.

Greetings from Villa St Exupery. We see you gave us 5 out of 5 for Cleanliness, Value for money and Facilities. We know cleanliness is important to backpackers, so we try hard to make sure our rooms are as clean as can be. Our pices are very low at the moment too, from €15 per night. We have alot of extra free services our guests benefit from after spending their €15 to make sure they get great value for money, like for example our free breakfast.

It was a nice stay, just the receptionist could have be a little bit more informative. For instance to offer us to rent towels right at the check-in, instead of waiting for us finding no towels on the room. Apart of this minor ting everything was good and we enjoyed the stay at Villa Saint Exupery Beach

Great staff, very willing to help. The place itself is in a great location, and is well maintained but the facilities seem to be a bit overused/ outdated. Lockers are big but bring your own padlock.

Perfect location, 2 minutes from the beach. Comfortable beds and a really great, powerful shower. Don't get excited about the sauna though, it barely works. The bar had nice lighting and very cheap beer during happy hour.

But loud at night with the bar below playing at full volume until 1am or so. And front door often didn't close properly. Quite a beery place. Otherwise good- location, staff, facilities, cleanliness all good.

Didn't realise until we got there that we would be situated in another building a couple of doors down from the main hostel. The kitchen in the main hostel was tiny to cook in and no where to put any food items that needed a fridge.

Our hostel is very large, we have two buildings and all our private room in the building next door. The electronic key cards our guests in private rooms are given still gives access to both buildings and to the bar area, kitchen area and to all other facilities. It is actually an advantage to have the rooms next door, because it is alot quieter. We really don't see the hardship in having to go one door down to get into the main hostel area.

Absolutely loved my stay here! The room was spacious, showers were good, and the movie room and ping pong table were great for just hanging out. The bar always had a great vibe and 1 euro beers at happy hour was incredible! The location was perfect too. Highly recommended.

I stayed 2 days in this hostel. this hostel is located very close to beach(Promenade des Anlais) which is really great. and the breakfast was pretty good. also, the staff was really kind. When I left from the Nice, there was on strike bus,tram. so, the staff told me that situation and explained how to get the airport by other transportation. So, I could get to the airport without wandering. However, one thing which was disappointed, the room was not clean, Except that, I was satisfied overall.

Great happy hour deals! 1 euro beers from 6 to 7. It was a really nice hostel with a really good vibe very close to the beach and the tram. The room was a bit small, but it's a hostel so it's not the end of the world! Breakfast is pretty good- a lot of cereal choices! Would definitely come back!!

Greeting from Villa St Exupery. Very sorry to read your negative comments regarding our hostel. We would like to make a few comments ourselves. All our rooms are cleaned everyday and checked afterward. Should a guest use the bathroom after our staff have cleaned, and the bathroom be left in an unclean state, we are always willing to go up to the room and re-clean. All our rooms have lockers, where our guests are able to arrange their belongings and lock them up for safety.

Excellent Hostel, great fun, good location- fantastic

It was an Ok hostel. There was a mix up with the rooms, the bunk beds aren't labelled and they don't allocate beds which gets confusing when not everyone is in the room at the same time. The breakfast was good, staff friendly. They don't have the bar menu available until 7pm which we thought was a bit late but dealt with it.

This Hotel was like a trip back in time.. very old-fashioned vibe, wallpaper covered walls. Pros: -Reasonably priced -Large room -Large bathroom -Great breakfast Cons: -Uncomfortable, worn out, too-soft, spring mattress -Queen bed is 2 twin beds combined -Not much of a socializing area -Very outdated hotel styling and feel To summarize: not a great hotel by any means but is pretty good value for money and is well-located. My main complaint is that the bed really wasn't comfortable.
