Really liked the location of this hostel. The rooms were standard bunk rooms and although we had a few issues with the bathroom floor getting really wet it was a nice place to stay. Big queues at the reception desk and it was hard with no extra showers on the floor we were on but there is some down in... More

After searching the web for somewhere central and near the beach to stay we settled on a double room here for €90/night. On arrival the reception area was congested and waited in line to listen to the staff chatter as they all changed shifts - talking about what they did the night before and their plans that night... Great start.... More

While there are many positives about the hostel, such as air con, wifi (that's slow), location is great and public locker/bathroom facilities is extremely handy. It's is severely over shadowed by the amount of morons that stay at this venue. I planed to stay here for eight nights, after six nights I booked into a hotel room to actually get... More

This place has been the most expensive place we've stayed at for a 3 months trip and it's the worst we've had. (1) the staff is unfriendly, not all, but most of them. They can't really be bothered helping or even answering our questions clearly. For a very simple thing we were asked 4 times "to come back in 30mins"... More

We stayed one night in this hostel and that was enough. We had a twin private room with ensuite bathroom, but it felt so claustrophobic! The walls must be really thin because we could clearly hear our neighbours coming and going. The bathroom was old and filthy. Not character old, but broken mirror and toilet seat old. Opening the door... More

What others are saying is very true. First of all, I believe that a lot of the pictures used are of the other St Exupery Beach hostel. I never saw any facilities as nice as the ones pictured. I stayed in a 10 bed dorm for 40 euro per night for two nights, which isn't too bad, considering some people... More

This place is well located but that's the only positive about this extremely over priced accommodation. We paid for a private room which could only be described as a dungeon-no natural light in this tiny room, with a mouldy bathroom, air con not functioning and intermittent wifi signal. We had 2 nights here and that was plenty. I would strongly... More

Greetings from Villa St Exupery. We regret that you found our standards insufficient. We will be starting renovations very soon to the bathrooms in our private rooms which require it.

Stayed at this hostel for two nights for my first hostel experience and it was not outstanding. I needed third night, but the hostel was booked. Thankfully, I stayed in another in Nice which was beyond better. This place was dirty, dirty. There was stuff on the wall next to the bed, the shower was moldy and the light would... More

We had 4 nights booked here and we left after the first night. Yes, it's cheap, yes, it's in a good location... but the condition of the hostel was disgusting. There was mold all over the room and bathroom, it hasn't looked like the tub had been cleaned in ages. We were too grossed out to even shower there. The... More

We stayed here for 6 nights and although it has a great location the price was ridiculous. The 16 and 12 bed dorms only had 2 plug sockets! The sauna didn't work and the reception lost the ping pong rackets after the 2nd day and didn't replace.
