The hostel is meant to be the best hostel of France. We took 1 hour to arrive there, because its up on top of mountains. We had no idea how to reach there by car. Its too far from the beaches, and the most surprising thing about this hostel is the price. Its more expensive than a hotel! Unbelievable! I... More

Great place to stay. Would recommend it to anyone and will definitely go back. The staff were super helpful and made sure we got to the best beaches/bars on the coast. They organise great action tours - try the canyoning day trip in the Alps. Though it is on a hill, the shuttle service to/from the tram is great, and... More

This is a wonderful Hostel to stay at, even if you normally prefer Hotels to Hostels. We booked a 5 bedroom room for our family of 4 (aging parents and 2 boys aged 12 and 16) and happily paid for the extra bed so we could be private. It was actually really useful to have an extra surface as the... More

We only stayed at the Villa for one night, as we were travelling through, and were quite surprised for a hostel to be charging 90 euros for a room, but assumed this was because it was well appointed and in Nice. We were very dissappointed the the accommodation, the room was dirty and the furnishings-bedding etc really ordinary. On arriving... More

I traveled all over Europe for one month, stayed in both hotels and hostels and this was by far the worst accomodations I had. I was seduced by all of the "Top 10 Hostels in the World" and "2007's Best hostel in France" awards that the hostel kept boasting about on their website but upon my arrival, learned quickly that...

You are isolated here - its a bit of a trek to and from the Nice Old Town and the beach - and the cool bars and restaurants. But then again maybe you might find that comforting to be around lots of like minded English speakers for a bit - maybe you can join them up to go somewhere -... More

It was my first time in a hostel. VSE is great for responding to inquiries and making you feel like you are not alone in Nice. Be prepared to walk to the hostel if the van is too busy from the train station. It is a 15 minute somewhat up hill walk. It is a great place to meet young... More

This place was just great for us. There were five of us, two girls and three lads. We had a shared room for eight people. It was lovely and clean and overlooked Nice. I would definitely recommend staying here. There's a shuttle bus that runs from Nice to the hostel (it's up a steep hill). They do day excursions of... More

Absolutely great 4 days at the villa. The staff are fabulous. Great value and great fun. Even an "Old Fart" like me had a great time. The food was good. Even late at night there were always some left over cookies to nibble on. Beer at 1 Euro and a friendly barman who stays open late. The location although out... More

we booked 6 months in advance. when we arrived, they had double booked our room, after showing them the confrimation (luckily we brought it!). after 3 hours of just waiting (they are quite far from the centre of town so we couldn't really go anywhere else), they somehow managed to scrounge us a room. it wasn't a particularly bad room...
