Nice has a great range of accommodation, and the good news is that some of the best places to stay in Nice are hostels. Below is my list of the best hostels in the city:
Villa Saint Exupery Gardens
Address: 22 Avenue Gravier, Nice, 06000, France
Phone: +33 493 844 283
Multi-award winning Villa Saint Exupery Gardens is a former Carmelite monastery. The property is a luxury hostel with great rooms and facilities. It offers guests free breakfast, a great bar, free WiFi, a large self-service kitchen, and free bus pick-up. Suffice it to say that this is not your usual hostel.
The one drawback is that Villa Saint Exupery Gardens is not in the heart of Nice; it is located fifteen minutes from the train station. To make up for it, the hostel offers bus transport until 1:10am every day.
Rates at Villa Saint Exupery Gardens hostel range from 27 to 45 euros per night for double rooms with ensuite bathrooms and 18 to 34 euros per night for beds in dorm rooms. Rates vary by season.
