We enjoyed our 2 nights in Cassis. The location was good...a short stroll down to the waterfront. We had the 4 room with bathroom. It was great for our famiky of 4. The children loved the pool and the breakfast was tasty and friendly.

This hostel is so nice, the rooms are big and the whole place is so clean! The people running it are all travellers and they are all very relaxed and friendly. Cassis is so beautiful and this hostel is the perfect place to stay to explore the village. I had a really good time here!

This is my first hostel experience alone in a foreign country. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The language barrier was not a problem, as most everyone spoke some English. I met some truly amazing people during my 4 night stay. All different ages, it didn't matter....I never felt alone or left out. The staff was amazing! We had nights... More

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

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.

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
