Marseille, port to the Orient and Vertigo (Centre as well as Vieux Port, stayed at both) excellent choice! Centre (best) is a 3min walk from the main railway station amidst bustling Marseille. Nice rooms, friendly staff, great common areas and kitchen and small patio for lounging and connecting. Marseille might be an acquired taste, some people think it's horrible. But... More

The Marseilles Vertigo Center is located right next to the Marseilles Saint Charles train station (go down the big stairs in front and then back towards the corner). The hostel is also only about 10 minutes to the harbor. There are a few food options next door, or if you go towards the harbor or to Boulevard d’Athenes. I had... More

We stayed in the really cool and spacious 16 bed dorm. It has a mezzanine, two toilets and three showers. The room and hostel in general was clean. The bar was cheap and we met lots of great people. Including Remy the manager who is a fantastic guy and really went the extra mile to make us all happy.

My girlfriend and I stayed in one of the private double rooms. It was competitively priced, and considering it is a hostel was a very pleasant room with simple but nice decoration, lots of space, a comfy bed and a fantastic balcony to sit outside on. The staff were friendly downstairs, and the reception and bar area is very sociable.... More

My SO and I had a stop in Marseilles on the way to Barcelona. We chose this place because of it's proximity to the station. Private double room was nice but small. Main light didn't work, but en suite was nice. However, the room was very very hot so we had to have the window open, meaning we could hear... More

We stayed in the 6 bed dorm on a recent trip to Marseille. 1) The reception staff were (as someone else has already pointed out) clueless, rude, and I only found two out of the six I encountered helpful. 2)The girl at reception got pissed off with me at check-in when I requested a separate dorm from my friend- and...

I spent one night at Vertigo Centre in July, booked a few days before and got a shared 4-people room for €30. The room was wide and clean, with two open windows and plenty of light. There were a private toilet and a big bathroom (with mirror and shower), both clean and comfortable. The guy at the reception is very... More

Rooms are nice and cozy; the double suites rooms have balconies. The common area is a great place to socialize with other backpackers, free use computers and kitchen. They have a courtyard at the back which is nice to hang out and drink beer ( Beer is between 2-5 Euros). Breakfast is buffet style, typical french breakfast( Bread, tea, coffee,... More
