Considered by most one of the best hostels in Europe; this hostel have all the facilities you can think of to make your stay pleasant and memorable, from a free “all you can eat breakfast” to free WIFI or LAN connection to a wonderful bar where to meet fellow backpackers and socialize; it might be a little out of town and, if you are walking, be ready for an heroic walk up the hill with your heavy luggages, but the hostel provides free shuttle service and the tram network makes it pretty easy to move around. But let’s get back inside the Hostel Villa Saint Euxepery, we mentioned the amazing bar but we didn’t mention that the drinks (a beer) start from 1EUR!
Chez Patrick Backpackers Hostel
This hostel is situated in the heart of Nice, just 2 minutes by walking when you get off the train, and 10 minutes by walking from the old town and the beach. Beware of the Pink Lady which runs a hostel in the same building and will convince you that you booked at her place! She runs a Restaurant Bar just down the hostel and while you looking for the Chez Patrick door bell, she will furtively scan you, with a big smile approach you and tell you how glad she is you booked her hostel! If you can make it at “Chez Patrick” you will find a clean hostel and Patrick, who himself, is an experienced backpacker, will help you to make your stay in Nice and the French Riviera memorable with great tips, friendliness and smile. There is only 1 shower for approximately 24 beds so if the hostel is very busy, like during spring and summertime, be prepared to wait.
