Cool stuff and a friendly atmosphere

The bed was comfy. A lot of noise coming from the road during the night, bring ear plugs. Did not like that no lockers available for use in the room. Aparently the last person that was in the room had broken it. The free breakfast was nice, but the kitchen was not that clean. The garbage needed to be thrown out. The staff were friendly and fairly helpful with directions.

I had a really lovely stay here. The staff are friendly and there is a sense of community with the other travelers. The location is really great! My only complaint is that there was just one toilet for 18 people. But it is a small hostel, so they don't have much space for multiple stalls.

A few issues (Stains on the sheets, no door on the lockers, no reading light), but ace location and the building itself reminded me of French movies.

There's only one washroom but I found that I was alright as most people have different schedules. Common room is great but expect to be quiet after 11pm. The staff is very friendly and helpful! Lots of resources available to plan activities. The location is excellent (5 minute walk to Vieux Porte) and rooms are spacious!

This place was the chilliest! Staff were super nice. Beds were comfy. We were the perfect distance from everywhere we wanted to go. Simple breakfast was included, jams were delicious and you've got patisseries and supermarkets all around. Stay here! It's been one of our favourites :)

I'm not entirely sure how this hostel won so many awards, the facilities available are pretty poor. There's two showers and only one toilet for everyone, there's very limited security, anyone can just walk into your room, and the rooms have one PowerPoint for everyone and pillows that are not even worth using. I was under the impression this would be a great hostel but was rather disappointed. The only good thing is it's proximity to the port. One of my worst hostel experiences for the price

This was a good stay until the end. My iPhone was stolen in the middle of the night. The general response to this was very disappointing. Yes, you enter a hostel knowing some "risk", but in the end this is a business where i pay to stay. don't think i got a real "sorry". Room didn't lock, and a staff let in someone they admit they shouldnt have. There was no one at the front desk in the mid of night. unnerving. A staff member whose phone was also stolen did help give some useful info to me.

I had a wonderful stay here! The location was convenient and easy to find. I arrived late at night and there was a staff member working, which is not always the case at hostels. The staff was very friendly and made me feel right at home. I also enjoyed the company of the other travelers. The living area provides a nice area to chat or watch some TV. The dorms were clean and comfortable. Thank you for a wonderful visit!

You saved my stay in Marseille! Keeep up the good work in providing such a simple and low cost sleeping facility. Maybe another day I will have more time to spend at your hostel!

First of all, the instructions on how to get there are terrible. Wifi didn't connect at all for many guests. Only one shower. Some of the staff at reception are not helpful. Apart from all that they have great atmosphere and serve dinner for a great value.

Location is good and the rooms were nice. But you could make a lot of improvments, such as : add more toilets (1 toilet for 24 guests is not enough, especially this close to the kitchen and without window), get a laundry room to hang your wet sheets (hanging them on the occupied bunk beds is not ok), make the lockers work (why did you remove all the doors ?). Also breakfast could be a bit better, and you should not ask donation for that. And staff could be a bit more friendly.

There was only one bathroom for the entire hostel. Disgusting. No lockers.

Positive things- free WiFi and breakfast. Negative things- loooonng list. 1. Located on the 3rd floor with no lift. 2. Only one toilet for the whole hostel. 3. Room next to the reception where the night staff and bunch of other people (who are apparently jobless coz they are in the hostel all day long) keep chatting and laughing till 1 freaking AM so you can't sleep till then. 4. Confusion about the allocation of rooms. What a nightmare!

The location is great. The staff are very friendly and communicative. I liked the bed I slept and the room too. The breakfast was good and There is coffee and tea available the whole day. The only bad point is that there is only one toilet, the toilet is busy all the time.
