“The reviews are right on! Great place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

This hostel was one of the nicest places we stayed in Europe. They keep it very clean and everyone is very friendly. They helped us find places to go, things to do, etc. The bed was surprisingly comfortable. We felt fine leaving our things in the lockers in the room. There was a private bathroom INSIDE our room. What?? It was an excellent hostel.

The hostel has a very good location, near to the main area in Marseille. From there, you can visit many tourist attractions by walking. The rooms are ok, nothing expectional. The staff is friendly and works 24h/7. So, the cost-benefit is recommended.

We were a group of 4 in a 5 bed mixed dorm.We liked the hostel.It was clean , safe and staff at front desk was friendly.The kitchen had nice breakfast too.We stayed just one day but I would definitely recommend this place.As others said this seems to be the better one of the vertigo hostels as it is in the better part of marseille.

Room Tip: Nothing in particular I think all the rooms were good.

great location, very close to the old port and you are able to reach the Notre Dame de la Garde by walking (uphill). rooms were clean and comfy with clean bathrooms and toilet. there is a shared kitchen (though one cooker is definitely not sufficient) and breakfast is included. staff were extremely friendly with directions and tour suggestions. supermarkets and restaurants close by makes it very convenient. the air-conditioning in rooms is a big plus during the extremely hot summer weather.

would definitely recommend this place!

This hostel is ideally located, just a few hundred metres from the Old Port. Staff was always helpful and friendly, rooms newly renovated, good shower and storage space etc. Wi-fi reliablle. Kitchen at the disposal of guests. Would go there again. The only potential problem would be if you have problems climbing steps to get into the room itself.

hello
stay from 02nd of july to the 04th of july
lots of positive critics of this hotel.
location : so near to the metro station, if you are coming from the train station St charles, just downstaires and take the metro ( blue line) with 1.5 euros and after 2 stations you will find your self in 'canebière" in the heart of the Marseille main's attraction : the old port. the hostel is 10 minutes walk from the old port. just find a bar called " l'exit" and mount the little alley glued to it untill you will find the hostel. the location is superbe, near restaurents, old port, fort of st jean, a big supermarket " casino shopping" where you can
Breakfast : basic : French bread, butter, jam, milk and juice. help your self! you can use the fridge of the hostel as well as the kitchen to prepare your lunch and dinner.
rooms : spacious compared to other hostels' rooms. a separate corner for the WC and a separate corner for the shower.
the staff is friendly and helpful.
have a nice stay in Marseille

Room Tip: rooms in bloc A are nice
