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.

To come from the airport: You can take a shuttle bus going to « St CHARLES TRAIN STATION in Marseille;
To come from the train station to the hotel : Take the blue line subway towards « LA FOURRAGERE »
Stop at the station « VIEUX PORT »
When you are out and on the port, face the water and follow the port, walking along the left hand side of the harbour.

About 200 meters from there, on your left, you'll find a bar called « the Havana Club ». On its right, a small street called « RUE FORT NOTRE DAME », go up this street and the hostel is at number 38, on your right.


Any cancellation must be done at least 24h before the arrival date.
If not done in time, the first night of the stay sill have to be paid entirely.

We do not accomodate groups during the summer period (June, July, August and september)
The maximum stay allowed is 15 days maximum. After this time clients will have to leave at least for a month before they can come back.
Special requests can be made at reception.
