This was an all round great hostel. Very near to the city centre, nice big, two floor, ensuite room, great kitchens, luggage storage, laundry facilities, nice brekkie, very friendly and helpful staff.

Decent place. I stayed in the out building that's like having your own apartment. Too bad you down know the people you're living with. Overall nothing bad but nothing special. Close to the port and a few of the main sites. Not a real lively crowd.

Staff were very helpful and friendly. Room was spacious and clean with a high ceiling, simply decorated, with good, simple security locker and individual power points within easy reach of top and bottom bunks. There was a separate shower and toilet. Breakfast room was large with adequate facilities and breakfast was included. The facility to leave my bag during the day in a locked room after checking out. For me the place was perfect in a good location.

Love this place! The location is perfect, right near the port with loads of restaurants and bars nearby. There is a shop next door to buy food & wine! Room was clean and big. They served a FREE breakfast every morning plus there is someone in reception 24 hours! The staff were amazing, especially Marie. They all spoke English and gave maps, directions & great info of things to do. Only bad thing - other travellers talking loudly & drinking at 2am in common area while we were trying to sleep.

I had a great time staying at this hostel. It was close to so many things, making walking an easy way to get around. I had no problems with my time there. I met interesting people, enjoyed breakfast provided each morning, and very much appreciated the good wifi. The one thing that I would suggest is that they state online that there is a €10 deposit that must be made in cash when you check in so that you can get your key. If you return your key at the end of your stay you get your €10 back.

This hostel is near the old port of Marseille (Vieux-Port) and easy to approach most attractions. Also, rooms are safe and clean. Staffs are really kind and helpful.

Nice hostel, great breakfast, wifi is a bit poor. Amazing staff and well located!

A bit on the expensive side but considering it is one of the only hostels in Marseille, the place was great. Decent kitchen, friendly common areas, comfortable rooms, and I met some of the BEST people on my travels here. That may be luck of the draw but there were many other solo travelers & everyone wanted to hangout & explore the city and national park together (you MUST go there). it wouldn't have been the same alone! If you're considering going to this hostel or Marseille in general, do it!!

To be honest the hostel is quite cool . It's very industrial and personally I like the style even if they could take care more of details. The breakfast is very good. The staff is ok and they gave us quite interesting tips about the non- touristy part of the city. The only important suggestion I can give you is to ask not to sleep in the rooms 1 and 2 (Area B of the hostel) that are too much close to a club and it seems to sleep inside a discoteque.

Decent hostel, it was pretty quiet and not much social stuff happening, at least in my building (there are two). My experience was a little off just because I had not so nice roommates and the fire alarm went off at 1am but, this is a pretty isolated situation. Would still recommend a stay here.

Everything was really good but the 5 minutes of alarm in the night (1.02am-1.07am) but whatever - it may happen to everybody. I really liked the chairs where you can chill out and observe reception and entrance. Still, I didn't like the lockers - maybe I'm too picky

It was really loud at night in house B caused by a pub/disco/xxx near the hostel.

I enjoyed my stay in Marseille. The hostel has nice facilities and breakfast is great (Coffee, milk, orange juice, tea, cereals and bread). The staff is really friendly - thank you for your kindness Julia! It would be nice to have bigger lockers and a bedside lamp.

Hey! Thank you for your comment. The last locker is on the way, we just transformed this room from a 3 to a 4 bed dorm recently! ;) All the best,

Nice hostel in a good location just off the port. Our room was a good size and everything was clean. For a four bed dorm there were only 3 lockers which weren't big enough for suitcases. The air conditioner kept the room at a good temperature overnight. There didn't seem to much of an atmosphere in the common areas which was disappointing and the breakfast was average. Staff were friendly and helpful.

This was honestly the best hostel I've stayed in my whole trip. The rooms were large, beds were squeak free, bathroom was immaculate, kitchen great and the common area was large and had super comfy couches!
