Really cool hostel with a bar and great for getting into random chats outside with people. Didn't have a locker in the room, but 2 showers. And a respectful nights sleep.

I loved it, very welcoming staff, implecably clean, and an amazing terrace where you can enjoy nice talks or just be relaxed.

It will be better if there is more stove, there is only one and people are waiting for cooking. Lockers inside the room should be added, there is space to put it, why not add it? However, there is a lot of steps in the hostel.... so... if you have a heavy baggage, try to arrange a room with fewer steps.

Stayed in the 16 bedroom dorm at the back of the hostel. The bathrooms in there were amazing. Bring your own lock! Easy walk from the train station and to the port! Ask the front desk how to get to the Calanque, they are really friendly! Quite the hike but well worth it!

We had a very nice weekend. The hostal is very close to the station and it's very easy to get. The Staff was very helpful, they gave advices about where to eat and to go. The atmosphere is amazing, a very young and funny place. I would definitely suggest to go there if you're planning a weekend in Marseille.

The hostel is located right next to the train station which is very good. However, the area is very sketchy. I would not recommend any girls to walk around here alone after dark. The girl in the reception is very sweet and helpful. However, the guy at the night shift, whose name I dont remember, was not very friendly and made the atmosphere much worse than necessary. But all in all, its a good place to stay and i made many new, amazing friends.

It's possible room B32 had bed bugs. I got bitten a lot at night. Also the shower room appears to have gum on the floor. Room ran very hot and would benefit from Aircon or a quieter fan.

Really nice hostel! Right next to the train station - the area seems a bit rough during the night, but it's great if you have to catch a train in the early morning ;) And it's not far away from the city centre either. Loved the dorm! Stayed in a 16-bed dorm, and usually those can get really crowded, but there was so much space for everyone. Also great to meet other travellers. Had a fun night. Will definitely stay there again if I come back to Marseille :)

Yes the hostel is very close to the train station, but the actually area is pretty dodgy..... Otherwise, it's a really nice hostel, with a bar and good atmosphere. Stephen is a legend!!
