This hostel is neat, clean, quiet and homey. It's also 2 minutes from the St Charles Train Station in Marseille, a big plus in my opinion. I always try to get a 4 bed room as I find this usually equates to a good nights sleep. (Their other hostel is a 15 minute walk away down by the port which... More

The staff were really accommodating to the fact we brought bicycles with us. We were able to lock them in the courtyard. Rooms basic but clean and 1 bathroom between 4 was pretty good. Courtyard nice setting. The city its self is alright for a day or 2.

The hostel is literally across the road from the train station. It is possible to walk to the Old Port from the hostel however some of the streets seemed a bit dodgy and the people there didn't look the friendliest. There aren't too many food options nearby except a kebab shop and the McDonalds and other fast food options at... More

I stayed here as a young woman travelling alone. On my first night I ventured out of the hostel to the train station (only 100 metres away) and was yelled at, approached and followed by 6 men. Returning to the hostel I found that a woman had walked in off the street and moved into my dorm room, and it... More

This was booked because I arrived on a late train and knew that Marseille could be "questionable" in certain areas late at night. The location was excellent, less than 5 min walk from the train station. I only stayed for around 9 hours total so cannot comment on a longer term stay but my impressions are like so: Location of...

For a hostel, this place was just abut perfect. Friendly and helpful front desk staff. Clean and large rooms (we stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm). It is in a fantastic location - 2 minutes walk to the old port. No aircon in rooms - but who expects that in a hostel!! Highly recommended.

Upon arrival we were greeted by a receptionist who offered us an "upgrade" to the twin room. This was certainly no upgrade - more like a demotion to the housekeepers basement cleaners closet! During the night dead flies would appear in the room, the window opened to the dirty street and there were hairs everywhere!! The room only came with... More

The Vertigo 'Hotel' is a Hostel. I repeat, it is a Hostel. After reading some of the other reviews, this seems to be a misconception. We actually booked our stay at Vertigo via Hostelworld, if that paints the picture enough. The hostel itself was fairly decent, with 24 hour reception, good security (buzz to be let in, keys to every... More

When we arrived, the lady at the desk told us that there was a mix up with our reservation so would it be okay if we could stay in the double room? Without asking if we could see it first, we went for it. Worst idea ever. It was unclean, looked like a basement/cave. The DIY work was AWFUL and... More

Our experience at Hotel Vertigo was generally very good. The staff were extremely friendly and able to assist us in both English and French. We shared a double room, so I can't speak to the condition of the dorms, but for a hostel the room was small but decent, and relatively clean - the toilet unfortunately was letting of an... More
