The location of the hostel is very good! Walking distance to the port, and to a lot of touristic places. The hostel bed are good, the environment is nice, with breakfast included, the Wifi was good, although sometimes it was really slow. The bad thing is that there was no warm water both days I took a shower.


A simple place with basic facilities, Hello Marseille is extremely genuine. The small number of rooms and guests mean it's quiet, but people were friendly when relaxing in the common areas and I found myself walking around the city with new companions. The staff is exceptional, as they are travelers themselves, and the communal feeling of the place is superb.


There are better hostels in better cities with less tariff.


Very firendly staff, nice atmossphere and an all-in-all really social hostel. Great place to meet other travellers!

Only 1 toilet per floor. 2 small showers with 1 sink in the bathroom. Only 4 plug sockets in a 6 person room. No reading lights in room just 1 main light. Hostel is on the 3rd floor, with no lift. Had to wheel my suitcase up stairs, which wouldn't have been too difficult if there were lights on the hall where the stairs were. Wouldn't reccomed this hostel.


Very nice hostel, uber nice staff, had a great stay and a good sleep at hello marseille hostel

This was my second stay, just a quick stop through this time but it's a great place, the staff are lovely and the location is great for exploring Marseille. Recommended for sure


Great place! Near the Train Station St. Charles, and several most see points of the city. Good beds, good people and they try to do their best for us. English, French, Spanish and other languages spoken. The kitchen has all you need! You have several supermarkets near the Hostel. The breakfast is simple, but you'll have something in your stomach :D


Everything very good, but there was no hot water, just barely room temperagure. Not good for morning shower.


Community Breakfast is a bery nice thing!!! Good location, quite some space in the rooms.


Pretty good hostel. Very clean and an excellent location. They provide massive lockers for your items, Not the best wifi though.


Hello Marseille is very good, especially the volunteers working there. Thank you so much!

Great little hostel, awesome atmosphere! The staff are very friendly, the common room is great, easy to meet people! Thanks HelloMarseille would definitely stay here again!


The people at Hello Marseille Hostel were really amazing! Great staff and fellow backpackers who made me feel really at home. It was always fun and we made friends and even travelled out to place together. We cooked together at night as well, it was just brilliant. It might be a little difficult to find the hostel at the start, but just follow the directions given, strictly, and you'll find the place. Look out for a small letterbox along the street that has the Hello Marseille Logo on it.


It was a wonderful stay in Marseille and and even more wonderful stay at Hello Marseille. The staff is very well informed about the city and guided us in a right direction to learn the history and culture of the place. The location is also great its right in centre and close to everything. Facilities are excellent.

The common area is arranged in such a way that guests are likely to interact, make friends and have a great time. Take advantage of that and put more effort into the delicate details such as bathrooms and noice. Greetings!!


Lots of fun! Perfect location right by the port! Metro was easily accessible, supermarket was 5 minutes walking distance owner was super fun! Rooms were filled with fun people. Overall was a great experience!


great location near the port, lots of bars and a few clubs close by. I didn't enjoy having to move rooms without notice but it ended up alright. the kitchen was great with everything you need to cook a meal from scratch. I would stay here again


For the price, Hello Marseille Hostel is a good place to stay. Located in the centre of the city, there are numerous pubs and eateries within walking distance. The staff at the hostel is great and the facilities are adequate. The living room hosts communal dinners and is a good spot for meeting new people. The only negative I experienced was that my room's lockers were not all in tact: the result was that I had no secure space to store my valuables, pardon handing them over to staff members.


The staff was extremely friendly & helpful!! Very open to conversation, sharing, and giving advice! Every day there are recommended activities posted on a whiteboard by entrance...found it to be very useful during my stay. The beds are extra comfy and there is always a warm, family feel in the common areas. WiFi worked great! Staff members speak several languages, making communication easy & accessible to anyone. Great place, highly recommended!!!
