Very cozy hostel. Perfect for budgettravelers! Very Nice staff, clean bathrooms and rooms and very cheap. The location is perfect but I would not recommend to wander the area during the night by yourself. We only stayed there one night but it was more than I was expecting from it.

This hostel is literally opposite Marseille railway station. You only need to walk 20 meters from the main road. The staff is excellent and place looks an upper class hostel. I had four bed en-suite dormitory which was clean.

Stayed here during the summer and was very pleased with the accommodation they offer at vertigo. Since I arrived there by train the fact that gare st.charles is just a few minutes walk away helped a lot as I'm not too fond on taking taxis as a tourist. The hostel is very clean, somewhat modern, the staff is helpful and... More

Didn't notice that it was a real backpackers place until we arrived there! My wife was a bit uncomfortable walking through alleys where only men sat ourside and women were kept inside! A different culture outside as well as inside where youngsters came in and out! Clean place but not what we looked for

I stayed here with three friends for two nights whilst interrailing through Europe. The hotel itself is in a great location - 2 minutes from Marseille St. Charles; great if you're carrying 10+kg in 35C heat. We stayed in a 4 bed ensuite room and the bathroom was one of the nicest I've seen hosteling. The staff were friendly and... More

I stayed here for one night during my backpacking trip through Europe. The hostel is very nice, and from my understanding, was converted from an older hotel. I stayed in a four person room with an ensuite bathroom. It was the nicest bathroom I've ever had at a hostel. My only complaint about the room is that there was nowhere... More

Hotel Vertigo Centre was everything I was looking for from a hostel. The staff was amazing! All employees I met were really nice and helpful and e.g. could recommend good restaurants. My original plan was to stay only for one night, and then go to another hotel closer to the old port, but I was so happy with the Place... More

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.
