Escalator was "out of order". One day would be ok, but it was still after three nights (and guess some days more...)

Endroit très sympa.Pas loin du centre. Bus numéro 9 dépose pas loin après transport en métro. Bon petit-déjeuner. Salle de bains et toilettes très propres. Personnel très sympathique et bienveillant. Vraiment un endroit idéal à Marseille. J'y ai passé 2 nuits. J'y retourne la prochaine fois!!

Die Auberge de jeunesse Hi Marseille - Chateau du Bois-Luzy ist meine Lieblingsjugendherberge. Im diesem schönen Schloß zu wohnen ist etwas ganz besonderes für mich. Ich bin immer wieder aufs Neue BEGEISTERT von der tollen Lage hoch über Marseille und der Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft des Hostel-Teams. Einen Aufenthalt dort kann ich wärmstens empfehlen. Ich habe auch viele schöne Erinnerungen an frühere Aufenthalte. Morgens beim Aufwachen und einem ersten Blick aus den Schloßfenstern liegt einem die Stadt zu Füßen. "Marseille reveille". Das Frühstück ist lecker und sehr vielseitig, sogar Obstsalat und Bio-Eier werden angeboten. Bei der schönen Umgebung möchte man gar nicht mehr fort. Mittelmeer und Stadt präsentierten sich bei dem letzte Aufenthalt von ihrer Bilderbuchseite.
