Staff and another guests were so friendly that I felt comfortable during my stay. And though I booked a dormitory room, but there were nobody except me. I really relaxed.

J'ai aimé le personnel, l'accès a la cuisine en continu, le portail et porte d'entrée sécurisés, salles de bain impeccable puis la propreté. A améliorer:- Ne pas mélanger avec les handicapés mentaux dans les chambres car c'est irritant parfois-certains lits superposés grincent. Enfin c'est l'auberge de jeunesse que je préfère à Marseille. Cordialement

marie rose,

La pire nuit dans un hostel de ma vie. C'est principalement dû à au manque de savoir vivre en communauté de deux autres clients. Ils ont parlé jusqu'à 2h00 du matin et ne voulaient pas éteindre les lumières. Mais s'il y a ce genre de problème c'est à cause de l'auberge, et non des clients. Il faut peut être positionné des pancarte «pas de bruit et éteindre les lumières dans les chambres après minuit». Il faut éduquer les clients car certaines personnes, sans règle, sont perdu et se comporte mal.
