Having arrived late in Marseille after a long journey my friend and I wanted to relax on the first night and have a drink in the courtyard. It was past midnight and the lobby was now closed but we sat anyway for a drink outside, 5 minutes later we saw our first rat of the trip but didn't expect it to be inside the hostel. In total we noticed 3 rats during our 3 day spell here. Not only was the hostel rat infested but the staff were not friendly at all. One night a group of us had been sitting finishing our drinks and were then keen to head out, the guy who had been working at the time came out and told us to be quiet as it was getting late so I asked him where the nearest/nicest bars were for us to go. Only for him to say that we "weren't allowed to go out as he feared for our safety." This at first came as a shock but after a few nights going out in Marseille and the Gare St Charles area in particular, I can kinda see where he was coming from. A dirty Hole. Never be back...Tom
