My stay in 2015 was also as agreeable as in 2014. Near habour and town center, clean kitchen and friendly staff. Wifi works only good near reception but there are also 2 computers to use for free

Great hostel!! Awesome location - super close to the port. The rooms were big, had great wifi connection, the kitchen space and facilities were good. Would recommend this hostel to anyone going to Marseille.

The hostel is fine but the atmosphere is so bad if you are a solo traveller. No opportunity to meet people. No organised events or pub crawl. And the only place to hang out is the dining room where are sitting at different tables and no one is talking.

Staff weren't very nice, always had friends they were more interested in, no towels to borrow, not very nice location away from most attractions, and kind of a sketchy street. Overall not a great experience at this hostel.

Great hostel, excellent location near metro and walking distance to all attractions. The staff were friendly and helpful too. Very spacious 4 bed dorm (others would have squeezed in another 4 bunks easily) with clean and well maintained bathroom and toilet. Breakfast was always plentiful with cereal options, breads and spreads etc. great stay thanks!

Great hostel! Staff was super nice and helpful. It was very clean and close to where I wanted to be. Only issue was the music coming from a nearby nightclub on my last night. The hostel was responsive and moved me to a different room.

It was clean and tidy. There was a mini supermarket around the corner. Shower could do with some work though, had to use it as a hand held shower, due to it not staying in place. Wifi only worked in the common area, other than that was ok.

Hey! We are so sorry you got this feeling in the shower.... Although, towels are not included in the price. We'll keep an eye open on the floors, the problem is, with 8 people in the room, everybody needs to try and respect the housekeeper's work! Some people don't care at all.... and it is too bad I agree with you...

This was a fantastic hostel, I really enjoyed it! Clean facilities, spacious room, great location and having breakfast included is always nice. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend this place!

We had such a amazing time in the hostel! We were really scared when they showed us to an out building and we thought it was going to be some dodgy abandoned barn, but it was actually really nicely done. The majority are in one of two buildings and both have really great kitchens and social areas. The hostels in a great location and we barely even had to use the (very cheap) public transport.

Nice hostel and in a perfect location of Marseille. Would just put lockers in the room of 8. Located within a few steps from at least 3 supermarkets, 5min from the Metro station and 15min from Notre Dame. Staff is friendly and breakfast is good. Security could be improved since anyone on the street can jump in the hostel by the side door. Highly recommend the hostel though.

Great location and friendly staff made this an enjoyable stay. The hostel has good common room facilities for meeting other travellers and is well worth the money.

Loved the showers. Stayed in a 4 person dorm and it was huge. Very chill atmosphere but nice after a long travel day.
