I'm sure this kind of hostel appeals to certain people...but not me. The place is just an apartment converted into a hostel in a really bad neighbourhood. The rooms are dirty and being on the very top bunk (stacked 3 high) I couldn't even set up my bunk. The only thing I can say is that the staff seemed very...

Before you head here make sure you have the address as it's not obvious from the outside as it's in a building of flats. Victor the owner was very helpful with lots of info and tips. Breakfast was nice, bread/toast with meats, cheese, Nutella and jams. Bathrooms a bit basic but powerful shower

I was in Marseille second time in the same hostel London Connection. It was a big surprise. New stuff, beautiful enterior. This hostel just changed. For the first was very weird. But now I would like to recommend it to everyone.

Nice staffs and people but there was no wifi(temporary), just one shower room and toilet. Locations is quite good just 10minute away from saint Charles station but not easy to find first time. Its recommendable to those who have small budget.

Friendly staf + felt secure, but for the price they ask, you can definitely find better in Marseille. No common space after 10pm so you don't meet the other travelers, trouble with plumbing, 3 bed high and wobbly (9 p in 15 m square room). Breakfast is cheapest of cheap, don't hope for baguette

Absolutely nothing to recommend about this place except for the price. But for a barely higher price you can get way better in other Marseille hostels with services, friendliness, cleanliness, free internet, space, comfort, security — a breakfast, come on! Shabby appartment, untidy and dirty, which is actually the owner's flat in a gruesome building. Not even sure it's totally...

Let me just preface this review by saying I am a grown man, and at times I didn't feel like one staying at Hostel London Connection. Being told there was a curfew and I had to be at home and in bed at a certain time was torturous especially when on vacation! Sure I can understand the no alcohol but...

I was so disappointed when I read the reviews on this place AFTER I booked it! I was hoping people were just exaggerating. Lets run through the positives: 5 minutes from train station. That's all. Kind of not positive though because it's in a rough area. The hostel was WAY overpriced. It's pretty dirty, the rooms are tiny! Crammed three...
