Location is great. In a quiet street but very close to the shops (Lidl and bakery just around the corner), restaurants (cheap ones as well as exclusive ones), caffes, clubs, taxis, basicly everything you need while in Marseille.
Only 200 meters from the port and really a safe and nice place to stay. Interior is decorated modern and nice. Common room and kitchen are extremely spacious. Rooms are clean and OK - stayed in 4 bed room with bathroom (you have bathroom and shower seperatly in your room), air conditioning, free WIFI and 3 computers. Breakfast was not bad - cerials , butter, jam, honey toast. Staff was helpfull and working 24 hours speaking good english. It's not extremely cheep but comparing to other similar accomodation and for this location - surely worth it. :)
