Easily accessed by local bus from the airport and great for a solo traveler, Villa St Exupery isn't the cheapest but it certainly delivers when it comes to proximity to the beach, access to public transport and helpful staff. Dorms are clean with shared bathrooms and the hostel also offers includes a free breakfast in the price so guests can... More

The hostels communal areas are great but the room i stayed in (14 shared) was so hot and only had one window which was the other side of the room. For the price it was great and did a job as i was travelling Solo during the Euros.

The hostel is located near the tram station in the middle of the city centre while a 10 minutes walk to the beach of Nice. A very nice location for people who love to stay in a friendly environment. Restaurants are within a 15 minutes walk and the price is also worthy. The bed are clean but some of the... More

I had a wonderful time here - wonderful people, always looking to show you a good time. It was easy access to nightlife, restaurants, and LGBT beaches, tons of young people to explore the city with! free transit to/from train station as well!

The hostel has a great location but the price is a bit expensive if you are considering a room with 10 people inside and one toilet available for all of them. The toilet has no window and it is really humidity inside. The breakfast is good for the price.

I had a great time here. One of my favorite hostels I have stayed in. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They organize all sorts of day trips for the travels to do. The walking tour of Nice was also very interesting and I would highly recommend it. Overall had a great time

This hostel is now closed. In fact it has been demolished, check it on streetview to confirm. The address was: 22 Avenue Gravier, 06100 Nice, France. Shame as it was a lovely place, nice atmosphere and great place to meet people. Nice memories in Nice.

Everyone wants to see the Riviera, but how many of us can afford it? The Villa St. Exupery is affordable living on the Riviera. You can choose to stay with lots of people or sleep three or sleep two or get a single room. This is an old monastery. A British traveler decided to offer the nuns a good deal... More

This hostel has a great atmosphere for traveling youth! They have a nice bar downstairs with a very good and cheap breakfast as well as a good happy hour for cheap drinks. One of my favorite things here is the free tours guided by Emma! She did a fantastic job encompassing Nice's history, quirky stories, beautiful architecture, awesome views, and... More
