Property Description

Voted the best hostel in France for 2011 by Hostelworld customers!

Vertigo Vieux Port is a newly renovated hostel in Marseille. As for Vertigo Centre that opened three years ago, you can find the feeling of a second home here.

We’re located in the Old Port area, walking distance from beaches, bars, clubs, the central market and the famous Notre Dame church.

We offer charming two-, three-, four-, five- and six-bed rooms. All of our dorms are very clean and equipped with comfy wooden bunk beds, private shower and toilet facilities. The five- and six-bed dorms are equipped with two private bathrooms.

Every room in our hostel is carefully designed and decorated by local artists according to the unique character of each room.

Our building was renovated from two typical buildings which makes for a modern cosy atmosphere, while at the same time it has the feel of a typical Marseillean house.

We offer a ton of free amenities, such as breakfast, Wi-Fi, linen, a fully-equipped kitchen with free spices, city maps, personal travel info, use of our travel guidebooks, luggage storage, book swap and a valuables safe at reception – all for free!

Our friendly, caring and multi-lingual staff are here 24hrs a day to answer all your questions. We'll try our best to make you have a memorable stay in our hostel and in Marseille. And of course there’s no curfew, no lockout and no stupid rules!

We'll make sure that you feel like you're home here. After you have been either on the road all day, or walking around in the city, you'll be able to relax in our cosy and friendly common areas, have a drink, talk and make friends.

**We accept a MAXIMUM of 7 nights stay in every 3 month period in dormitory style rooms.
**No check out and check in on same date allowed, minimum 1 night between check out and check in.
*Group bookings must be made by request only.
**Booking multiple beds in dorm rooms does not guarantee you to all stay in one room; to ensure you all stay together, book private rooms.
If you and your friends book a dorm, we will try and keep you together in one room but can't guarantee it. Book a private room to be sure to stay together!
**Minimum age 18 to stay with us.
**We are a non-smoking property; smoking is not allowed anywhere inside the building. View House Rules

    The room was big and didn’t feel crowded, had plenty of bathrooms/showers in the actual room. The common area and kitchen were nice, and the location was great. Staff was very helpful and the general vibe was nice. Highly recommend!

    Loved this hostel!! Just a few blocks from the bay. Bathrooms were clean, multiple kitchens, breakfast included, staff was extremely helpful, all of them. Pricey to do laundry, 4 euros to wash, 2 euros to dry and 1 euro for detergent but it’s all good! Great living spaces. Fun place. I’ll be back!

    Friendly staff. Free breakfast is always a bonus. Would recommend if you’re looking for a chilled vibe in a good location. Let you store your bags after check out which is great

    Location is right off vieux port. There is no elevator, and rooms are up a flight of stairs. My room (4person female) also had additional stairs once in the room to get to the beds. The shower/toilet was downstairs. Only big complaint was that the sink is located with the shower, not the toilet, so it can make getting ready a hassle in the morning (also no soap provided). Little light in the room - there’s a skylight but during the night it doesn’t help. Breakfast is bread and jam.

    Location is amazing!! I feel the common spaces were rather awkward. Wifi is not strong throughout the facility. It did not work in the common area where the only lounge seating is available. Everything was clean, though there was no soap in the bathroom within my room. Staff was friendly though their recommendations were all focused on endorsements.
