Hello there. Really great to read that you took away good memories of your stay in Nice. We say thanks to you too, for finding the time to write some comments about us and our hostel. Make sure you stay with us again when you come back to visit the beautiful city of Nice, and make some more good memories to take home.


We were indeed blessed to locate this accommodation right at Place Massena hence I can't complain about proximity. Breakfast will be charged from Jan 2015 and I don't mind paying if hot food is provided. The current breakfast consists of bread, cereal and hot drinks. But the ambience and space is remarkable! There are computers, a gym and even a steam cabinet! Room is simple and though looks alittle run down, I am not complaining because hot water avails and it is well ventilated with heater.

It seems you had a nice comfortable stay in at our hostel and we're glad you found us. Please come and see us again on your next visit to the beautiful city of Nice and the Cote d'Azur.


Great hostel, friendly staff! Common room and bar area is awesome, good atmosphere!

Thanks very much for your kind comments. Great to read you enjoyed the bar area of the hostel. Our bar becomes the centre of activity on most days at the hostel. We wish you a safe journey home and look forward to meeting you again on you next visit to Nice.


Having stayed in over 30 hostels around the world, I can honestly say that this hostel is exceptional. It has everything that a budget traveller could possibly want including a sauna and a gym. Lockers in the room contribute to added security and the free tea and coffee is an added bonus. The manager even took the trouble to get some feedback from customers and to advise them with sightseeing. Well done to Philip and his team for a job well done and going out of their way for their customers

the location was quite central in nice, although when i went, the elevator wasnt working so it was a bit of a climb up to get to my room. the room is very basic but it was clean and comfortable

Thankyou for taking the time to post a review of our hostel. We see you liked our central location, right next to the main city centre square. Our convenient location means our guests are 2 minutes walk from the 17th century old town of Nice, and from the beach. It's nice to read you had a comfortable stay with us. Please come and stay with us again on your next visit to the beautiful city of Nice.


The showers are ancient, the staff seems totally off most of the time (seemed bored when we asked for towels), the bar was boring to death...

Greetings from Villa St Exupery. Your visit to Villa St Exupery was during the winter period where our occupancy is very low, please visit us again in the summer time where you will find a lively bar full of backpackers every nigth of the week. With reference to your comments regarding the state of our showers, we are in the process of renovating bathrooms over the winter period.


I make reservation by 5 bed in a room with 8 bed, when arrive, they move mi reservation a 12 bed room, is a disrespect

Greetings from Villa St Exupery. Your reservation was for four nights in a 8 bed dormitory. We did not have the 8 bed dormitory available so you were re-allocated to a 12 bed and we blocked four beds in that room, which meant there would not be more than 8 people in the room. We did explain this to you on arrival, that even thoguh there are 12 beds in the room, only eight people would be staying.


Nice Lillie hostel in a great part of town. The staff are very friendly and the cafe/bar is a nice place to hang out. The building is quite old so some of the unrenovated rooms are somewhat dated. But the gym and showers downstairs are new and quite nice.
