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.

There are no power socket in the 3 bed dorm which is quite inconvenient.


Wonderful backpacking atmosphere. The hostel itself is in one of the rougher areas of Marseille, but only a short walk to the docks and station. Security was only a key-in-door thing. Kitchen facilities and bar available. Very busy and sociable in summer, but cramped - with touchy WiFi. Some rooms are up 4-5 flights of stairs. With bags, in the summer sun, it is exhausting.


100 metres down from main train station and nice people with great rooms and beds!

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 :)
