It is located right next to the Vieux Port. We got individual room key for good security. Great breakfast was provided to full our belly.

Great and easy to find location. Kitchen is well equipped. I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm that was reasonably cosy. Bathroom facility was clean. Late afternoon/night staff were really helpful.

Great location, great security, great cleanliness. Yes, it's a bit up a hill, and yes there are stairs. The wifi is a bit spotty in several areas of the building, including the kitchen/eating area. Breakfast leaves a bit to be desired (it's baguettes and jam and a dirty coffeemaker). Not at all a social atmosphere, and people pretty much keep to themselves. I asked the staff about events or a pub crawl or something, which seemed completely unusual. But they were helpful with everything else.

I was expecting more from a hostel in the prestigious list of famous hostel. It was an above average hostel, but then again Merseille is an above-average city. Everything was as expected, but nothing was spectacular.

We were in the mixed 8 bed dorm and the room is huge and has a small kitchen. You have to hold up the shower head when you shower and there's only one shower for 8 people (and the toilet is in there too). No wifi in this dorm. In the main area you have to sit in very specific locations to get wifi (annoying!). Hostel was in decent location, close to the beach and shopping. You walk about 15-20 minutes to get to the hostel from the metro. The staff were pretty friendly, the girl was super nice!

This was a great hostel. Very unique in its look and architecture. I don't know if I would stay here again just because Marseille isn't my cup of tea but this hostel was a great break from the city.

The hotel is so good, very comfortable,and the people is warm,The only problem is has no WIFi in the 8mix bedroom. but anyway it is very good for this price. what is important the position is so good near the centre of Marseille.

Booked the night before so i could get some sleep when i arrived at 0500. Guy at the desk looked at me like i was crazy when i walked in and took forever to figure out what was going on. the girl who was working midday was great though.

This place has a fantastic atmosphere. The dorm for 6 persons are spacious and you have plenty of space to put your stuff. Only thing is....They changed the bed sheet very often but not the blanket because I found many dust and hair sticking on it which is pretty gross. You may find restaurant or department store nearby. Very friendly staffs even the helpers. Only issue is the safety problem in Marseille itself, nothing to do with hostel. So guys be more cautious when you're in the city. :)

Perfectly friendly staff, pleasant room, well placed location for most things you'd want to do with the one downside of an incline on the way up. Would recommend as a place to stay while exploring the city.

This was a pretty nice hostel. The room was spacious and had an ensuite with separate toilet and shower. There were lots of power points and the beds were quite comfortable. There was a good size common area and a small kitchen to cook in. Good location and the staff were really helpful.

Average hostel Great location and reasonably clean but the facilities and staff were ordinary. The hostel occupies two buildings which are next to each other. We were in the second one which had a makeshift kitchen set up using very old appliances. We asked several times for the wifi to be fixed in the second building and the staff said they would be never did. Beds aren't numbered so it's first in best dressed (bad for those who are traveling as a couple and want the same bunk!)

I had a very good journey at vertigo vieux-port in may 2014. 8 minutes walk from the metro vieux-port, and right next to the old port. We loved it. they serve the breakfast for free ( france breakfast).
