This is the best way to get a first glimpse at the city!
Just walk down from the Train Station 'St Charles' to the Vieux Port.
1 . Walk down the white marble stairs,
2. Walk down the street first called 'Boulevard d'Athènes' then 'Boulevard Dugommier' until you cross the famous 'La Canebière'
3. At La Canebière (the local 'Champs Elysées, you can't miss it) turn right and walk down to the port 'Vieux Port',
4. ... and you will hit the Vieux Port in about 10 min.
Once at the Vieux Port, turn left and take the large street first called 'Cours Jean Ballard' (it becomes 'Rue Breteuil' after)
The hostel is at number 12 on Rue Breteuil, right side of the street, just before the flower shop 'Interflora', buzz at 'Hello Marseille', and we await for you on the 3rd floor.

If you are a bit tired or if your backpack is too heavy to carry, 'Le Vlo' Free City Bikes are available at the bike station down the white stairs. For a 1 euro ticket, you'll be able to use bikes all the week around the city, an investment worth the benefit ;). (Note: Credit Card is necessary to subscribe. Free for 30', then you have to change bike and go again for 30 free minutes)
