  • This is one of the worst hostels I have stayed in. It was very cold and the heater was working only for some small time - no possibility to dry anything. The room was very dimly lit. In the first day of our stay there was no toilet paper. The water in the showers was either very hot or very cold - no middle ground. The water pressure was so poor that it was barely coming out. And the funny part - we were told that before we turn on water boiler we should make sure that noone is using hairdryer.

  • Best place for 7 EUR a night. Right in a city center, but out of tourists crowds. The only thing I did not enjoy - was not possible to close window in our room, but it was not such a big problem, as in the room was not that cold and heater worked well. WIFI and shower - worked well.

  • Do not book at this hotel. We booked loccanda rocco and we're instead put in another hostel owned by the same people. No air conditioning, our door didn't lock, beds were gross, bathrooms were disgusting. Manager tried telling us that this place was an upgrade from loccanda rocco, but based on the reviews and pictures we saw of that, there's no way that was true. We relocated our last 2 nights to florent which was a studio apartment for basically the same price and was so nice. Do not stay here!

  • Well we booked this hostel but had to check in across the street. Was confusing to get to and hard to find but was in an excellent location. Only one socket in a room of 5 people which was very inconvenient. There was also only two bathroom both of which were small and often had only cold water to shower with. There was a shower and sink in our room but basically it was a see through shower so no one used it. Great cafe down the street could get a good breakfast for €2.

  • When I went, there was no room at this Hostel, so they sent me to a different place called Pensione Ottaviani. This place is more a Hotel than a Hostel. Rooms needed more space, it lacked of electric outlets. Also, the staff needs to be better. Sometimes, they charged you just to give you the Wifi password. Also the toilet was inside the shower.
