Travelled solo and stayed for 3 nights. The hostel is located 5 minutes away from the train station and close to the main road so safety was a non-issue. WIFI was strong in both rooms and common area but my favourite has to be the outdoor terrace to soak in the lovely French weather. Met some wonderful people at the... More

Great for talking and meeting other people. They have a cheap breakfast, but you can find some better stuff by just walking around the area. A sketchy area late at night, got catcalled walking back to the hostel a lot. It's right across from the train station and very useful for early morning trains. A bit of a walk to... More

Stayed two nights in the Vertigo Hostel. It is about a two minute walk from the train station and 10 minutes from the Port. Its a very safe hostel and the staff were very nice and helpful. The hostel had a great atmosphere with indoor and outdoor areas to socialise/meet other guests. Only downside was the wifi which was quite... More

This place has 2 things going for it: 1: It is quite literally across the road from Marseille's main railway station, so great if you are arriving late like I was. Marseille does however have a decent metro which serves the more central locations well, and 2: A great international crowd. This is the most social backpacker I've been to;... More

Hi, Could you tell us which room didn't have a hoose? We definitely need to correct this. You needed a curtain in the shower? I don't get it, all showers have glass doors... I'll go have a look everywhere anyway. All the best to you and have a nice trip More

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
