Me and my friend stayed at this hostel for four nights. The first day we arrive before check-in time and the staff were so friendly by allowing us to leave our bags in lockers. Throughout the trip the staff were very friendly when we asked for advice on things to do during the day and restaurants to go to at night. The rooms were very cozy and clean although at night it seemed like our room (103) got a little warm at night. If you get the chance, do the walking tour with Phillip! He was so informational and taught us things we would have never known about Nice! Over all I had a great experience and would go back in a heart beat!

My and my friend stayed at this hostel for 4 nights and it was an awesome experience. They have luggage storage for you if you check in early which was helpful. The staff at the front desk was AMAZING and very helpful with places to go, how to get there, and restaurants to eat at. We also went on the walking tour with Phillip, which was for sure worth it even on our last day because of the rich history we learned. The pub crawl was also fun and worth the euros. An easy place to meet new travelers. Location was amazing also and a minute from the main square. Very clean hostel with great bathrooms and a lot of space. The rooms were slightly warm but that was the only con.

I spent four nights in Villa Saint Exupery Beach in early May. The hostel is in a wonderful location next to Galeries Lafayette and in walking distance from the beach. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable and the bathrooms are newly refurbished and spacious. I have happy memories of the hostel because the staff were all so kind and lovely. It is a fun place to go and meet new friends and have a relaxing holiday. I fully recommend it.

Back at VSE for my second visit this year. Loving the new bathrooms. This hostel has such a great location- we were in our dorm one minute and swimming in the sea five minutes later (and i can't run to save my life)

I stayed at the hotel side of Villa Saint-Exupery for three nights in March 2018. The room rates are very nice, especially given its very central location. Very nice and spacious bathroom, too. Overall definitely recommended. However, the room is unfortunately very awkward. To begin with, the (very nice) bathroom lacks a mirror, which just shouldn't be acceptable. To add insult to injury, the room doesn't automatically have towels. Why? Also, the room takes basic a bit too far. It has literally a few objects that include a bed and a big, awkward table. Also, there is no noise cancellation and the area is a bit loud so that gets a little annoying sometimes.

Recently stayed in this hostel. It was my first time to book a hostel so I was a bit skeptical knowing we will be sharing a place with 14 other people but it wasnt so bad after all. The bed was comfy and lights out at 10pm (although youll get the occassional lights on when someone new comes in and youll hear some music from the bar area but not too loud) but apart from that it was dark and quiet on most nights. Youll have to go downstairs for toilets and showers though but they have reasonable amount of showers and toilets so it wasnt a problem. We just had a problem when we booked our scuba diving, we paid for the deposit but unfortunately they havent rang the place to reserve a spot for us so we went to the meeting place and was told they couldnt take us because we didnt reserve in advance. Told the guy in the reception about this and he was so sorry and offered a free breakfast in return so it was okay. Anyway good place if you want to stay in central of everything and on a budget.

Stayed here last week for 4 nights with my 3 children. Even though we were out and about for most of the day it was a great place to stay, central location with such friendly and helpful staff who can't do enough for you. They helped us many of times to plan/recommend a day out, informing us of which bus/tram to get on and where to get off. The hostel itself was clean and always being cleaned. No complaints about the food, tasty and plenty to choose from. Free wifi... fantastic! Bedroom was absolutely fine, clean and the beds were comfy. New bathrooms have been installed which too which are really modern. Great stay, you can't go wrong!

I had a blissful stay at Villa Saint Exupery. It's v convenient for the city centre, the old town and the beach. The staff are v friendly and helpful and there is a great buzzing atmosphere. There's a bar, a restaurant and even a sauna! My room was full of beautiful paintings of the Riviera, a v comfortable double bed and what looked like a brand new bathroom with amazing shower! The breakfast buffet has everything you could wish for. This place is amazing value for money - I can't recommend it highly enough!

This place is a real gem, right in the middle of Nice, a stone's throw from the beach and the Old Town. I stayed in one of the double rooms, the bed and pillows were super comfortable. The bathroom had obviously been recently renovated and was seriously smart. Good size room and bathroom, lots of space to hang clothes, and bright artwork on the walls celebrating the local area. I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Nice, it has a really nice vibe, and my room felt more like a hotel than a hostel. Good breakfast too.

While the location is unbeatable, the place has seen better days. I´ve been coming here since they first opened this location and it´s in dire need of some paint. The beds in the dorm are ok and the lockers spacious. But they have a lot of long-term people staying here, It was also hard to find a clean table, pretty much any time.
