Cool hostel, with nice, amicable staff and a nice atmosphere. The common area of the top floor we stayed felt more like a sunny patio, with an open-ceiling kitchen (packed with refrigerators for anyone to use), its walls decorated with vivid drawings and quotes people left behind. The four-bed room was equipped with working AC, the beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was clean and fully functional. I consider this hostel to have a great value. Checkout a bit early at 11am is the only con.

Located scant few meters away from the train station, while also being at comfortable walking distance from an array of attractions. It's the hostel that's delivered the most value for my money so far, w/ free breakfast and pasta nights every day. Two free meals for 17€/night is pretty great. The staff are nice and helpful, and I'm glad to say I didn't come across a single instance of the typical unwillingly employed adolescent, or any employee of similar ilk. Wi-Fi free but only in common area.
Worst aspect about this hostel is how they charge for both breakfast (4€) and Wi-Fi (varying rates), though they offer both towels and earplugs for free. It was a bit hard to find, tucked in a small street, but once located you should find its location conveniently close to the station, while still putting you in a prime spot for seeing the deeply historic city of Nuremberg. Staff were friendly, rooms were nice, though beds lacked a reading light. You can use your own padlock on their lockers.
Onda Road is easily, hands-down the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Of the roughly dozen different hostels that have purveyed me their services and dormitories, none has ever delivered an experience nearly as enjoyable, relaxing, and as intrinsically familial as this quaint, humble establishment, tucked away in a hidden, simple, beautiful traditional town on the mediterranean coast of Italy. And as that number ever increases, none come close either. Also THEY HAVE THREE LITTLE KITTIES. 100%.
There are better hostels for similar prices in the city of Marseilles: I much more recommend you stay at the Vertigo Hostel, for instance. I stayed there for one night, and it was a much better experience than the one I cumulatively had over three days in the Hostel Sylvabelle, with its inconsistent staff (some nice, some record-breakingly rude) and average facilities (one of the showers was missing a showerhead, there was no hand sanitizer, there was no kitchen area, they did not rent towels).
