Vertigo Vieux-Port

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Voted the best hostel in France for 2011 by Hostelworld customers!

Vertigo Vieux Port is a newly renovated hostel in Marseille. As for Vertigo Centre that opened three years ago, 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.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Our 4-person dorm room was very large with nice beds. The hostel had a cool design, with interesting art on the walls. The kitchen had a horrible smell and only one electric stovetop for cooking, which was a pain at dinnertime. Good location near the old port with grocery store and restaurants nearby, although the port was under construction so it was difficult to walk around. The staff was helpful, friendly and happy to recommend places to eat nearby.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We were very satisfied with this hostel.
We were able to cook (there are a lot of cooking facilities) and the multifaceted breakfast was delicious (coffee, milk, tee, orange juice, baguettes, jam, butter, honey, 3 different kinds of cereal,...). The room was clean and there are two separate rooms for the toilet and the shower + sink. We felt like at home.
On our trip through France we've stayed at many hostels and it was by far the best one.
We definitely recommend it to future travellers!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

location was good in respect to being in the old port area but nextdoor to a nightclub was not at all an ideal location. This club went all night untill 5am and therefore they need more or better soundproofing walls. I would advise not staying there fri or sat nights unless you want to party hard till 5am.

Otherwise very clean and new mattresses and nice common area and friendly staff.
