The hostel is located in the middle of the city.You can reach any point of the city taking the bus,the train , the taxi whatever..The fascinating thing is the atmosphere ,people who are always friendly to each other,smiling at each other.Everything was perfect when we were there.l would stay there again if l visited Nice.
Great stay at Exupery Beach!!! Simple and clean - everything you need and more for a City Break! Fantastic facilities, great staff, great location, really friendly bar area and good knowledge and recommendations around the area. This place is right in the centre with fantastic access to public transport. Would highly recommend :)
Stayed in this hostel with my daughter Bus ride from the airport, short walk through the square to the hostel . Really comfortable bed and clean room with ensuite. Great pubs, restaurants, beach nearby What more do you want
The hostel is located in a great location with the beach and all main shops within a short walking distance. The staff at reception were very friendly and happy to help with anything. Bathroom and shower were quite small and the beds were good but not great. Overall felt a bit dirty but was situated in a good area.
The place is full of drunkard ad homeless people ... rooms are stinky though cleaned daily, people dirty getting into beds with day cloth without showering themselves. Let alone that it is impossible to sleep at night as people comes back from boozing at any time, puking in their sleep ! The problem is that they run a bar indoor which leads to every bad behaviour. Place to avoid
Checking in and out took a while as there was only 1 guy on reception. He was friendly and helpful, but could really do with some help so people don't have to stand around in the tiny lobby for so long. The bathroom was horrendous. So much hair and dirt on the floor when I arrived. Lots of mould on the ceiling around the shower - probably due to the absence of an extractor fan. This also meant that the bathroom got incredibly steamed up and uncomfortably hot. And there was no mat on the floor, which meant it was extremely slippy because of the condensation. Also, the only mirror was in the bathroom, which is kind of inconvenient for a dorm room, when lots of people are trying to get ready. There are additional toilets and showers downstairs, however, these were also horribly dirty, with one of the toilets being covered in vomit on my first day there. Not a great first impression. Despite this, I got a good nights sleep as the rooms are a comfortable temperature and mine was not exposed to any traffic noise or noise from the bar. There are plenty of power sockets per room and good sized lockers. The bar is nice and a good place to socialise. The breakfast is good, and they also have a small kitchen so you can buy hot meals. The hostel is centrally located so makes getting around Nice very easy, although I would stay somewhere else if I returned.
Couldn’t ask for more from a hostel. Comfortable, well equipped room, friendly staff, great facilities and the location was right in the heart of the action - easy walking distance to pretty much anywhere in Nice. Very helpful at helping to book activities such as canyoning (which I can wholeheartedly recommend as a perfect hangover cure). Top marks.
Great location, close to Old Town, the beach and bars and restaurants. Staff very friendly and helpful, lots of suggestions for trips and activities to do in Nice. Comfortable beds and clean rooms. Best hostel I've stayed in, amazing atmosphere. Highly recommend staying here.
I stayed in a 6 bed dorm, the room was small but i could live with that, i've been in smaller. We had a private bathroom for the 6 of us which was fine, and there was 3 guys and 3 girls but It was FILTHY. They came in to clean everyday, but i'm not sure what they did to clean it? It smelt clean (until someone went in there to shower), but still looked and felt grimy and dirty. I don't have HUGE expectations for hostels, you get what you're paying for, but for the price i was pretty disappointed as the whole room and bathroom was just so dirty i was really uncomfortable and felt dirty the whole time. We kept our windows open to air it out but was still bad. I don't understand, because the floors were so filthy and never cleaned although they came in everyday? There were towels (at least 6 on all the bathroom hooks) in there, and towards the end all our dorm mates ended up realising they were none of ours and the peoples before us that they still hadn't gotten rid of. Bottom line is it smelt so bad, it was like a wet dirty smell. All 6 of us were so grossed out. It is in an amazing location, and the bar is fun to start drinking before you go out, but the location is pretty much all you're paying for. Could probably find an airbnb in a similar spot for an equal or a bit more expensive but would be worth it.
I stayed here 3 nights and has been one of the worst hostels throughout Europe. the staff were so sleazy and only worried about pulling the girls and degrading them at every chance, my room was filthy showers seemed as if they hadn't been cleaned in weeks, the food was disgracefull microwaved pizzas and burgers bar staff were rude and actually ignored people. overall I would NEVER recommend anyone to stay here
