Lovely hostel, very clean, very friendly, nice place to meet people. Staff go out of their way to help you make the most of your visit. In a very good location with good access to public transport. Yes there is only one toilet but it didn't cause any problems at all. You have to keep quiet in the common room after ten but there are plenty of places to go out nearby if you want to.

Great place to stay. Definitely recommend. Only downside is the one bathroom, but it works out if you are patient. The staff is excellent.

Good quality with cheap price. The breakfast costs 5euro per person but it is quite good. Very near the train station!

Great location and close to the Metro station. The kitchen is a plus. It has a large balcony for smokers so no need to run up/down 3 flight stairs. 24 attendant helps keep the place safe. Only have 1 toilet, but never busy or long wait.

Others have mentioned it already, but there is only one toilet it the entire place. Not one per room, but just one. Other than that, it was a lovely hostel and great place (~5 min walk to Vieux Port and restaurants). They offer a discount to members of hostelling international.

The hostel was great, the statf were always friendly and down to earth. The place seemed a little dirty at times but i guess this is unavoidable. While i was there one shower stopped working, with only one toilet and shower for all the people it became pretty annoying. Otherwise great.

Liked everything about this hostel except for the facilities. Unfortunately they only had one bathroom and one shower open for all 24 guests and staff. Location is nice, atmosphere was good and we enjoyed the hospitality!

Hello Marseille was the nicest and friendliest place I stayed in Marseille. As a solo female traveller I felt very safe staying there. It has a family feel to it. You will definitely make some friends if you're open-minded. Highly recommended! Excellent value for money.

The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere there was like a family's as everyone in the hostel gets to know each other very well. This hostel is more simple than others I have stayed at but it was the best experience! Having only one common room means you can interact with other guests nicely. Also, the location is excellent and close to the best things to see in Marseille! Definitely recommend, and I would certainly come back here.

The only problem was the toillet, they only have one WC for women and men and it has a terrible smell, everyday. Beds and rooms good, great location.

The staff and people were great, but there was no lock on the bedroom door (though there were lockers inside) and no lock on the main door. There was only one bathroom to be shared for the whole hostel, which was never an issue in terms of lines, but did make it sometimes look a little questionable. Shower options were fine and there were more. The kitchen was big and really nice, as was the common room. The front door was very hard to find though...

I think the toilet could use an air freshener.

I really liked staying here. Great common room where you can eat, hang out and use the wifi. Good kitchen, clean with all facilities. Nice rooms with lockers for a 5 euro deposit. Only thing that migjt be a problem is that there is only one toilet, but I never saw a line and never had to wait. One the other hand they jave several bathrooms with showers and sinks, even some rooms with just sinks where you can brush your teeth and change.Great location aswell, highly recommend!

Good location, somewhat friendly staff. The hostel seemed to be under renovation when I stayed there.

This is a great place smack-bang in the middle of Vieux Port in Marseille. You have easy access to the Metro and Busses 19 and 21 which take you to the breathtaking Les Calanques! The hostel is small but this is what makes it unique. I was lucky to have a 5E dinner made by one of the guests. Tres Bon! Thank you also to Delilah and Ellie.

Hostel is normal, is clean, not too organized, and the breakfast is not really included in the price. They buy same bread and croissants and ask for a contibution for the breakfast. I think is not fair to say that the breakfast is included, they shoul explain better in the site. The location is perfect

I like the hostel, the staffs are nice and the cutlery are good. The best thing is the common room in the hostel which you can meet people or watch movies Even though the water in the shower is not strong and there is no elevator, it still one of the best hostels in Marseille.
