    Superb

    07 Oct 2018
    I arrived at midnight and although I had asked for a downstairs room because I had a big bag and there was no lift it was not a problem because a staff member carried my bag up and down when I left. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the location was superb because I had to catch the train the next day.

    Fabulous

    Would recommend. Marseilles has a big mosquito problem but this hostel is the worst for mosquitoes by far in the Church as if there is some stagnant water nearby where they all must breed. I must have been bitten 20 or so times in my sleep and quit badly. I would recommend this hostel but also recommend they take steps to reduce the problem, such as having mosquito nets on windows or a plug-in electrical deterrent. Most walls are covered in blood spots from squashed mosquitoes.

    I won't choose this hostel again and would rather pay more for alternatives. The main problem is there is only one toilet in the hostel, though enough shower rooms in the room. But can't understand how to share one toilet with all travellers. The surrounding area of the hostel seems very dangerous when going back to the hostel and heading to the port. I was little bit shocked that there is no key or lock for the locker , but normally, hostels provide a locker with key or digital lock.
