It was one of the best hostles I've ever be. The staff was friendly, the location was very good, the breakfast was really complete. I stayed just for onde day, but I used the baggage locker during all my stay, and the staff was always there to help me. During the night you can go walk on the seaport, it is very close and the street is safe. I certainly recommend the hostel! Thank you people :)

Our room wasn't located in the same building as the reception, but it was fantastic. Massive room for only 8 people. With own kitchen and dining spaces. Only downfall no wifi in room and no lockers. Reception spoke excellent English and gave us great advice on what to do. Free breakfast was good, selection of cereal and baguette.

Was easy to find, though it was down a narrow street off the port. Wifi in rooms worked well. Liked private bathroom in each room. Some beds squeaky but mine was great. Rooms had small lockers but didn't need them, felt very safe. A/C unit in each room + skylight. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was simple cereal, coffee/tea, bread w/jam. Tip: buy fruit/yogurt @ Carrefour around the corner. Kitchen facilities were the best of all the hostels I stayed at. Spacious & clean. Lots of dishes.

The location is grim. The managers cat dictates whether you can open a window or door.

Not sure how I feel about this one. Cleanliness is an issue. Three days and our bathroom was not cleaned properly. Towels werent changed and toilet was not clean. Location was really great, close to Notre Dame de la garde. Reception is supposed to be 24hours but night porter was taking a snooze the morning I had to leave and I had to go find him to get my key deposit back. Overall a decent stay.

Nice place to stay. The kitchen was well equipped and the rooms were spacious. A bit hot tough since there is no AC. Friendly staff helping and answering any questions we had. Close to the port and walking distance from nearby beaches.

Nice and clean Hostel, near old port and in about 40 minutes walking distance from Marseille train station. Free breakfast and kitchen.

Well, for me this place was a surprise. I stayed in a shared two bed room with private bathroom, and all was really good. The hostel was quite new and really clean. Also it was a surprise that the hostel has two buildings and you can go from one to other without problem what increase the living area a lot. People from the staff really friendly and I saw them helping other people a lot. For sure this will be my stay next time in Marseille.

I stayed at this hostel for just one night but I found it clean and loaded with everything a traveler might need. The rooms were spacious, next to each bed there were TWO plugs which came in super handy. The kitchen and common room are huge and super inviting to just hang out and chill. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Everything was really fine and no complaints except for the quality and choices of the breakfast which was under-par compared to other good hostels.

This was the one of the nicest hostels I stayed in during a 5-week trip through Europe. I was in a 6-bed mixed and the room was huge compared to most hostels and had two bathrooms. Everything was clean and the Wifi worked in the room and common area all the time.

I know it's a hostel, not hotel, but my one complaint is that the rooms don't feel very home-y. They're kind of sterile. Also I wished we'd had air conditioning! Otherwise staff is excellent, location is wonderful, and access to kitchen and internet are awesome when you're trying to travel cheap. This was my 2nd stay here and I'd do it again!

The hostel was decent. The rooms are quite big, pretty much like an apartment. It is quite close to the old port and all the sites. The only downside was the WiFi doesn't work in the room.

Good facilities in most buildings (only missing a stove in a few). Showers/bathrooms are nice, and the hostel is well-cleaned. Staff were very kind and helpful throughout my stay. Breakfast was good (and included).
