Very good Hostel. Felt very comfortable. Would go back there. I recommend it.
Thanks to everybody! Super fiendly staff !
The building itself is old. The hostel has a policy of making guests return room keys to the front desk every time you leave the building. We wanted to watch the Super Bowl in the lobby during out stay. The game started at midnight, so we asked the receptionist ahead of time if it would be okay to watch it that late. They said it would be ok, but when it actually got to midnight, the receptionist at the desk at the time said we couldn't. We had to argue and eventually he let us watch it on mute.
It would be awesome if you put better directions on the website from the train station. It was just a tad difficult to find.
How awesome it is here! Such lovely staff, cozy atmosphere, and did I say lovely staff? So nice and accomodating! Will definitely return here!

It was nothing awful, nor nothing brilliant. For some reason, it wasn't a very social place when I went, though they had a bar.
It is located right next to the main train station. Staff is very nice and helpful. WIFI is super. The only issue i had was the noise of doors banging in my ears through out the night.
The service is really bad! The receptionist didn't even care about us, and gave us a really bad impression of Marseille. I will never go back in that hostel or even recommend it.
One of the best hostels ever. Nice atmosphere, very clean, friendly staff and cheap. Go for it!
This hostel was an excellent choice. It's just across the street and a few doors down from the train station, and an easy walk to the port.There's a really sweet little bakery on the corner, and a supermarket just up the street. The staff were really friendly, and the rooms clean and cheerful. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Amazing service and and amazing people! If your looking for a great place in Marseille, look no further than Vertigo.
Vertigo Centre is a decent hostel, facilities are good, location is okay. A fair walk from the sites but very close to the train station.
Right next to the train station, which is very convenient if you need to take an early flight/train, but mind that the neighborhood can be a little dodgy at night (all Marseille is). The hostel is clean and comfy. The girl from the front desk in the afternoon was extremely nice and helpful, but the guy that was there during the night was rude, lazy and looked very bothered if you asked him anything at all. Two big cons: there is no elevator (and stairs are very steep) and there are no lockers.
The Staff was very friendly and the hostel was very clean. As mentioned it is very close to the train station.
We had a excellent time there.

it´s noisy from the street (bad old windows) the heeting-system in the bath of room 12 is not variable and therefore energy-wasting the hostel lies in themuslim part of the city
Great common area. Friendly staff who were all very helpful. Close to the main station and only 10 minutes walk to the marina/main port of Marseille. We loved our stay!
Great staff! I find the breakfast a little overpriced.
Literally opposite the train station, but is very quite, with a supermarket close by and a short walk from the old Port area. Staff were friendly. Double deluxe room was spacious and tidy with a balcony, table, chairs, lamps and wardrobe, shampoo, and towels. No wifi in rooms from the 3 floor and no lifts. Fully equiped kitchen, a good common room, cafe and internet terminals on the ground floor. Overall, a good stay.
A very cosy hostel where you feel at home immediatly!
