    Nice setting (no pun). Good internet. Friendly atmosphere (if sometimes overfriendly - see below)

    For some unexplained reason I was given a double room for the first night, which was fine, my room-mate being a touring Polish motorcyclist. Slept OK. However, the 12 room mixed dorm which I was in for the remainder of my stay was another story. The hostel was full of young kids who were there to lie on the beach during the day and party at night. The bar played rock and served booze till midnight or later. The supposed curfew thereafter meant nothing. The group of teenage Aussies in my dorm had yet to learn the concept of mutual consideration. I spent two nights with a giggling half-drunk couple in the bunk underneath me. Certainly did not sleep OK. If you value your sleep then beware of this new generation of back-packers. Double room thumbs up. Dorm, no thanks.

    villa sain exupery had the best shuttle bus service leaving every 15 minutes to the local supermarket and nearr the tram line. the reception staff where also really nice and managed to organise me and my friend into the same dorm. also the hole facility was clean and welcoming a very chilled place to hang out.

    the buffet breakfast is bread and cereal which is standard in hostels but for the price we expected something a bit better.

    Great for meeting people, fun, offer a number of activities. Might seem far from the center, but shuttle service is very convenient.

    It´s very nice, but it is a little far away from de center... so that's complicated!. but it is very fun and the staff are amaizing!

  • Couple
    5.0

    The hostel's service is very good! The staff works really well and the shuttle service offered (for free!!) is really helpfull. Good for parting and meeting people.

    The cleaness was deplorable. When we got in the room (private for two) we realized the sheets weren't changed after the last guests, there was paper and chewing gum inside the bed!

  • Single
    8.2

    The bar, late opening, cheap drinks and internet access. Company of others and the range of people and age groups.

    It was tad too far for returning to late at night and had to get taxi's which cancelled out cheapness...

    the bar! and the brownies! also the people, aswell as the gardens ...... pretty much it all.

    bit far away from the beach.

  • Older travelers

    Helpful staff,free shuttle to and from tram stop

    Mainly younger customers and bar stays open until 2am so can be quite noisy.

  • Group of friends

    The restaurant/bar was great. This is a young traveller only place to stay. Not the cleanest rooms, but the staff was helpful and great with everything.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    The staff were very helpful and the common areas were a lot of fun and well done. Easy to get into central Nice-the hostel provides a shuttle to the tram station (only a couple minute drive), then you take the tram straight into town for 10 minutes.

  • Family with children

    Good location for someone who wants to visit Cote d'Azure by car, because the highway is quite close and you don't stock in traffic. Free parking - very crowded but in Nice even such parking is a great avantage.

    First of all I stayed in two rooms, because of mistake in my reservation. The first room was a horror. No furniture exept for two bunk- beds (no chair, no wardrobe, no desk, no shelf - just nothing to put your stuff). No towels, no soap, no hanger for towels and mould in the bathroom. In addition - iron bars in the windows. It was like a jail. The second room was nicer, but stil very very simple and not reall clean. We had a small fridge but it didn't work. The staff in nice but completly unprofessional (we were told to shake the fridge :) - didn't help of course. You are told to wahs your dishes after breakfast. There is student camp like atmosphere - if you are a student and you like - go there. If you are not - don't go there. Maybe it's not expensive, but in my opinion it was not worth money we paid (especially for jail like room!). For the same price you can get the family hotel in the city center - with the furniture, tv and towels......

    Staff is the biggest value of Villa Saint Exupery! Very friendly, very nice.

    Villa itself, facilities are not bad either, but the location is not very convenient.

  • Single
    5.0

    the staff was helpful, nice atmosphere of a student hostel, my room-mates were very nice!

    the position was not exactly ideal for a short visit, you can't arrive in the centre on foot, and the shuttle runs until midnight. I didn't like the breakfast, there was basically nothing besides cereals and milk, I don't eat them, so I had to go for a breakfast outside, although I had paid for one in the hostel. The shower could be made better, so that the water doesn't flood the whole bathroom. On the whole, I am not disappointed, because I stayed only one night, but I would probably prefer a different place for a longer visit
