Very good location! Walking distance from everywhere you would want to go. The hostel staff seemed nice! Only real negative was that the kitchen wasn't able to be used at very many hours and there was no communal fridge or storage for food which is a shame when you want to be on a budget.

We booked a train room with private bathroom and were located just 2 buildings away but it was not very nice. The bathroom and shower were dirty and the room as well. Would not stay here again.

Greetings from Villa St Exupery. We regret to read the negative comments in your review. We would like to make a few comments ourselves. All our bathrooms are cleaned everyday to hotel standards. The bathroom you refer to in one of our private rooms is old and admitedly in need of refurbishment, it is not, as you suggest, dirty. We will be carrying out the necessary refurbishments over the winter period and we hope you will come to visit us again in order that you can re-valuate us.


The best location you can ask for. We stayed in a double room ensuite which is in the building next door. Surprisingly the rooms don't have TV, the air conditioning is noisy, the room needed some cleaning and you have to hire towels for your stay. We asked for 4 towels and 2 of them were very old beach towels. Really?! Our bathroom's light automatically turned off after 10 minutes of use. No small bathroom amenities whatsoever. Oh and we had some drain pipes as a room view. No value for money!

Greetings from Villa St Exupery. We regret to read the negative comments in your review. We would like to make a few comments ourselves. It is true our private rooms do not have a TV, we do not claim anywhere that they do. The noise of the air conditioning is merely the air passing through the grill, this can be adjusted to blow less strongly.The bathroom you refer to is in one of our private rooms and is old and admitedly in need of refurbishment, it is not, as you suggest, dirty.


Best hostel in Nice and one of the best I have personally seen in Europe. Vibrant environment and excellent location to old town.

-the bathroom was very dirty (mold on walls and around the tap) - packaging of soap left on the side of the bathroom when we arrived - the window was broken and we couldn't sleep because of the noise of the street - poor sound damping - the electricity wasn't in the standards, it's dangerous - the bar where was served the breakfast has no windows and the breakfast was really poor. - the price is expensive for the service ( 70€/per night for 2) but the location is good.

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay as we work hard to ensure the best experience for all our guests. We are looking into your comments regarding the room and cleaning to make sure this does not happen for future guests. We hope one day you give us another chance! Best regards from the team at Villa Beach


Excellent location, very close to the beach and main tourist areas. Check-in was quite slow and took a long time. We had a 3 bed room with an ensuite, the room and bathroom were spacious and clean. The bathroom was a bit dated but usable. There was a lift, however you have to walk up a flight of stairs to get to it. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was ok for a free breakfast.


Best hostel I have stayed at. Close walk to the beach, staff is very helpful and will answer and questions you have. Atmosphere is very good, as a solo traveler I was able to meet so many people and make my traveling much more fun. Price isn't terrible for being in Nice. I will be back for sure when I come back to France.


We stayed in a private room. It had a very bad smell in it, when we opened the (only) window the smell was just as bad out there. The air conditioning was old and didn't blow cold air, the room was hot over night and we didn't get a good sleep. Its the first hostel we've stayed in (2 months of traveling) that charge for towels. 5Euro was a bit steep for a towel. The sink plug was broken and the whole room made us feel dirty.
