Chassis hostel is beautiful and eclectic. The kitchen is well appointed but small. The rooms are clean and beds are comfortable when compared to other hostels. The bathrooms are clean, although the line up for the shower at night after swimming in the pool can get long. Yes, there is a pool!! The best feature of this hostel. While we... More

The hostel itself is beautiful, clean and well maintained. The location is amazing (easy access to the calanques and downtown), and the staff is the most friendly and helpful you will find. We were 2 couples traveling together - as soon as we arrived, Sophie and the staff welcomed us in and made us feel right at home. They had... More

We were given a room on the second floor and here;s the highlight - NO A/C NO... More

First of all we would like to apologise for your bad experience here at Cassis Hostel but we would like to make a few points regarding your review. The room 'you were given', was the room you had booked in advance. There is no information on Hostelworld or on our website about a fan in the room. A/C is not... More

How many hostels have pools?! Cummon! This is an idyllic place, every bit as good as it looks on the photos. The staff are the most friendly, helpful and easy to get on with that i have ever encountered.

Cassis is one amazing place. It is hard not to fall in love with the area! And this is one of the most amazing hostels I have ever stayed at. You are a five minute walk from the water and downtown and really close to the trails to hike the calanques! We stayed at the hostel (actually we stayed in... More

I was really well treated throughout my stay here by sophie and her staff. Every night they light a fire in the fireplace and there is a real atmosphere of a rural cabin right next to the sea (5 minutes). And they had an infinity pool which i didn't enter but looked really clean and inviting. Altogether a clean 5*... More

A great place! Sophie and her staff are super helpful and welcoming. The value of this place is the best in town. For 24 Euro (I was there in March), you can't beat the atmosphere and accommodation. The location is great as well-3 minute walk to the beach. The kitchen, pool, and living room with fire place are a great... More

I absolutely loved this place! So close to all the restaurants, bars and the harbour but still very calm and quite. Everyone there was so nice. Gayfriendly hotel! Simple, small bedrooms but clean and tidy. Also, a kitchen where you can make your own meals. Really great place for families, couples or for traveling solo!
