The worst thing is: "There is only ONE toilet for all the people" Silence curfew 22:30 was completely DISRESPECT and staff didn´t care Guests didn´t have keys to enter to the facilities, so guest have to ring a bell to get the doors opened... so the entire hostel could hear the bell... ANNOYING you can´t rest Facilities were dirty and lack of care Lockers were broken, noisy and uneasy According to their webpage, breakfast is included... However they suggest you a donation Staff aren`t nice

Great place, nice staff, great that they have communal dinners for a very cheap price. Thanks Hello Marseille.

Hostel is clean and safe, but those are the only positive things I can say. Staff made us wait to check in because they were eating lunch, they hung the bed sheets to dry wherever they pleased in the rooms without asking, and they entered the rooms without asking/knocking. There is only one toilet for the entire hostel and the WiFi is only compatible with Apple products, not Android. There is one younger boy, probably in his 20s, who is particularly rude and unwelcoming. Don't stay here.

Great intimate hostel. Loved the group meals! It is a nice business based in alternative economy and the owner was there, present, and very helpful. The rest of the staff was hit and miss. In the summer expect it to be a bit hot most of the night though, only disappointment. Great location with transit, pharmacy, grocers, and center of action all very near, but not in the thick of it.

This hostel was okay. No key or lock on individual rooms which made me feel unsafe. Staff is always at the desk though so that's nice. Although one day we came to sit to plan our day on our bed and there were wet sheets hanging all over our room even on our bed so we could barely sit or get to our own things! Also only one toilet for the whole hostel - awful! We had a shower connected to our room so everyone in the hostel was in and out of our room constantly which made for little privacy.

What a pleasant surprise. This little hostel has the most wonderful staff and really great vibe to it. Security seemed lacking, many lockers were broken and there are no room door locks. Although the front door does seem well monitored enough. Great location and while Marseilles was nothing special, this hostel made up for it.

Wifi in rooms, better facilities, free breakfast, etc. This was by far one of the less satisfactory hostels I stayed in on my Euro backpacking tour.

I really liked this one, the staff was incredibly friendly, the atmosphere was great, the showers/toilet were nice and clean, as was the bedroom, which was also quite spacious. It was definitely one of the best hostels I stayed at!

We only stayed for one night in this hostel but it was still a very nice experience. It was also nice to actually get wifi in the room we stayed in, something we didn't get in most of the hostels we had. The location was also a little far from the train station.

Very cool hostel, really close to the Port so very easy to get everywhere around Marseille. Only potential issue is the fact that there is only one toilet in the Hostel, however this didn't turn out to be a problem at all during our stay, was simple enough to wait for it. The 5 euro community dinner on offer each night is an absolute bargain as well, an excellent way to get to know the other guests and staff.

It was a very friendly hostel that had lots to offer. You were able to rent everything you needed for the beach and had great suggestions on what to do everyday. Did not really have much to do in the city but location was awesome and close to the port.

This was perfectly located next to the old port. I felt safe and the place was very clean. The only downside was the one toilet that was shared by the entire hostel. As you can imagine it was always busy and needed a good cleaning with bleach! Overall though it's one of my favorite hostels I've ever stayed at during my travels. Very nice staff and perfect location! I would stay there again!

A great atmosphere in a good location. The group dinner feels like family, which was a nice surprise. Felt very secure, though the limited number of toilets and showers was a bit of a shame. Would definitely go back!

The Spanish chef Paola is an absolute legend! She cooks great homemade dishes for a decent price and is simply awesome. However All the staff are great and the hostel is fantastic, not to big not to small caters for everyone. Must see Cassini beach while you are there. Cheers for a great time!!

Excellent location. Staff was not too enthusiastic to help, but it was ok. Great showers, but only one toilet for all the hosts, so we had to queu for long.
