Staff were very friendly and keen to help out. The rooms were clearly cleaned each day which was very nice. I also like having the two showers in the room - very useful for 5 people getting ready at the same time. The wifi was good in the room, which was useful as I had to do uni work while away. I think more info about the local area should have been available at the hostel though. Also bring your own padlock for the storage.

Well located, close to the port with its restaurants and bars and not far from the metro, and it's only two stops from Saint Charles station. Breakfast is good continental fare, wi-fi is a little spotty.

I've been there for three nights. The hostel is nice and the staff is very caring. Their bedroom and bathroom are really clean and the wi fi into the bedroom is ok. You better bring your own padlock for the lockers. It's close to vieux port and subways. However, I think their breakfast could be much better than it was.

Great value, great location. I met a bunch of rad folks drinking in the lounge. The room I stayed in only had 3 lockers but luckily no one got stiffed. One building has a more roomier lounge area and kitchen than the other. I would stay again

Great location for a pleasant short term stay in Marseille. Staff was extremely polite and helpful. They are well informed about almost everything in the city. The only problem was that our dorm was in the back yard where we are out of wifi range. For wifi connection you have to go in front of the door or to go to common area. 8 bed dorm room is kind of separated from the other life in the hostel but well equiped. Defenitely would stay here again and recommend!

I thought I was bitten by mosquitoes because the only source of cooling at night was one small open skylight but it definitely was bedbugs. Hopefully they are able to remedy this!

Good, clean hostel and the rooms and beds are very comfortable! The kitchen only has one electric stove top so it's a waiting game. Wifi in rooms is great, but not so in the common areas. Great location and staff!

Super close to the old port and easy walk to the beach and the metro station. Wifi in the rooms, clean, normal breakfast- cereal and tea and bread. Great common area. Plenty of space in the rooms too.

Very big room, with a small kitchen in it. And very close to the main places in the city.

Clean - yes. Good location - yes. But it's a big hub where a lot of tourists come and unfortunately there is no atmosphere (just my opinion).. A looot of steps - on the floors and then inside the room, with a luggage it's not very easy) Rooms in main building for 4 girls are without windows, just small ones on the roof - very stuffy. Different networks for internet - it is lost when you are changed the building. And no internet in the big dormitory, which is very good with the other features.

The wi-fi was awful, not only did I not have access in my room (which was in a separate building) you practically had to sit on top of the router in order to use it. That was a little disappointing as they advertise wi-fi for the entire hostel. Other than that downfall this hostel was good, my room and bathroom were relatively clean, the common room was nice and the staff was relatively helpful.

The 8-bed dorm is actually a spacious apartment in the back of the hostel across the court, with a fully equipped separate kitchen, bathroom and plenty of space for luggage and to hang around! Ideal for travellers!

8-person mixed dorm. I had read previous reviews and expected no lockers, but I asked at the front desk during check-in if there would be and they said yes. Then we go to the room only to find no lockers. I asked the staff about it later and they seemed confused. No big deal, but I don't understand why they didn't know if they work there. Also, 8-person dorm doesn't have wifi and only has 1 bathroom, which makes no sense because there is ample space that it could have been designed with several.

Nice spacious room. Very clean. Quite at night. In-suite bathroom and toilet made it very comfortable, and being "down stairs" gave privacy. Great location. Close to the metro and famous sights. Wifi connection was not through out the hostel.
