Liked: I came in by train to St. Charles central station, so the location 200 meters from the station was great. Easy to find if you google a bit in advance. When I moved on via the airport, the shuttle left from St. Charles, so very convinient! The rooms and showers are spotless, and the staff is no less than wonderful. Wifi good. Bar good. I would recommend this place to anyone, even pickish travellers.

Disliked: Perhaps not your cheapest hostel, but you get what you pay for, right?

Disliked: The kitchen could be bigger maybe? Also it could be cheaper.

Liked: Bien situé juste en bas de la gare Saint-Charles et à l'entrée du quartier "maghrebin" du Centre ville. L'espace bien aménagée avec beaucoup de caractère.

Disliked: Quelques crochets aux murs dans la chambre seraient la bienvenue pour accrocher son blouson.

Liked: none

Disliked: Room smelled of paint. Wayyyy too over-pricedm with nothing positive for the extra cost. I happened to be staying at 2 hostels in Marseille because I decided to extend my stay after my first hostel was already fully booked. My first hostel was the very similarly named one in Vieux Port. That hostel was 6 Euro cheaper, still very easy to access, and had hotel-quality rooms. If this hostel is priced at 10 or maybe 12 Euro then it would be competable with the one in Vieux Port.

Liked: Excellent in almost every respect. The place oozes character and is a really fun and comfortable environment in which to stay. Perfectly located and with extremely friendly and helpful staff I would not hesitate to recommend this hostel.

Disliked: One minor quibble - no lockers, however you can store laptops etc. in the safe behind the desk. This does mean you are left carrying passports and money around with you.

Liked: The atmosphere and the facilities for one thing. We felt like we were in a safe and friendly place and had no qualms leaving our property inside our room. The facilities were good, though with one hob, trying to cook around dinner time could prove challenging if you don't eat early.

Disliked: There wasn't really anything we disliked about the hostel. Possibly having to pay for breakfast? We would really have to nitpick to find anything wrong with the hostel. It is a nice place to stay, though being back and in your room before 10pm would be advised for safety and general courtesy.

Liked: Just perfect! Near to the main train station, clean, helpful staff, cozy atmosphere, nice Freanch-buffet-breakfast for only a few Euros, and, the Internet wifi actually works (which is hard to find in a hostel!)

Disliked: Nothing that I can think of. I only stayed one night, though, if I had stayed longer, I might have found some flaws. :)

Liked: Small and clean with nice rooms and hang out spots.

Disliked: Not really a dislike, but possibly aircon in the rooms or even the communal living area would be nice. Makes a big difference to come back at end of a long hot day and be able to cool off and escape the heat.

Liked: Good location near the centre and the station (but at the same time creepy at night), also had two pc's to log in to the internet and a terrace, where you can sit.

Disliked: Not very clean, could be cheaper, and not good enough about meeting people, or getting out at night , all these hostel stuff , so if you are travelling alone don't expect too much.

Liked: The staff were very nice and helpful, and the room was great- clean, comfortable, nice... there was a pretty full kitchen available for use, and it was right across from the main train station- super convenient!

Disliked: The area around the train station/hostel is bordering on a slightly sketchy area, but this wasn't too bad. A bit expensive, but in Marseille it's a pretty good deal.
