The hotel was nice. We got an OK room with bunk beds,it was clean, located close to the city centre, and had helpful staff. It had cozy common rooms, a TV, free wifi and computers you could use. Not too much noise.

The Hostel was not far from the "city" but you had to walk for a couple of minutes to Get There. If you like hookah, there is a hookah bar literally 5 feet away. Hard rock café just a 2 minute walk. The Hostel was a OK place to be. The room we had seemed to be a little old,... More

I will start off by saying that the breakfast has very limited options and the walls are pretty thin so you can hear just about anything said over a normal speaking volume. Bathrooms ad shower were really clean and nice though. The staff here were super cool and nice! Had a fun 30 minute conversation with one of the receptionists.... More

It was an okay hotel. Was not a big fan of the fact that I had to walk downstairs with a bad leg just to use the bathroom. Yes it is a good way to avoid noise, but it is not good for someone with an injured leg.

The place is in the center of all the must see in Marseille... Just about five minute walk from vieux port metro, slightly hidden so it's great to do a research and ask. My reminder is the Hard Rock Cafe and go up the stairs from there and a little walk to the left. Very affordable and comfy room even... More

I have stayed in a room for 4. The beds were really good and the 2 floor room with toillet and shower downstairs was good to avoid noise. The kitchen on the B building was also really good if you like to cook.

Spend only one Friday night. Very nice place, super close to the port. They serve a nice breakfast, they have free wifi and free computers with Internet, the rooms and toilets were very clean. The space between beds was wide, and the beds were comfortable. Would go again and recommend it!

This is a clean hostel in a convenient part of Marseille, about 10-15 walk from Vieux-Port underground station. The rooms are spacious, beds comfortable and bathrooms clean. The basics are good and staff reasonably helpful, if a little unenthusiastic at times However, the WiFi is slow and, in a city that can be incredibly hot and humid, not having air... More

Pretty basic hostel with great staff. The staff have been extremely helpful and polite, the rooms were clean, the kitchen has been great (it's clean your own dishes so obviously some people feel entitled and don't bother to carry their own weight) wifi in the main room.. Somewhat pricey but it is peak season. Would give this hostel a 3.8... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Voted the best hostel in France for 2011 by Hostelworld customers! As for Vertigo Centre that opened in 2007 , you can find the feeling of a second home here. We're located in the Old Port area, walking distance from beaches, bars, clubs, the central market and the famous Notre Dame church. We offer charming two-, three-, four-, five- and six-bed rooms. All of our dorms are very clean and equipped with comfy wooden bunk beds, private shower and toilet facilities. The five- and six-bed dorms are equipped with two private bathrooms. Every room in our hostel is carefully designed and decorated by local artists according to the unique character of each room. Our building was renovated from two typical buildings which makes for a modern cosy atmosphere, while at the same time it has the feel of a typical Marseillean house. We offer a ton of free amenities, such as breakfast, Wi-Fi, linen, a fully-equipped kitchen with free spices, city maps, personal travel info, use of our travel guidebooks, luggage storage, book swap and a valuables safe at reception - all for free! Our friendly, caring and multi-lingual staff are here 24hrs a day to answer all your questions. We'll try our best to make you have a memorable stay in our hostel and in Marseille. And of course there's no curfew, no lockout and no stupid rules! We'll make sure that you feel like you're home here. After you have been either on the road all day, or walking around in the city, you'll be able to relax in our cosy and friendly common areas, have a drink, talk and make friends. ... more   less
