The room was pretty basic, just what you expect for this price. The owner seemed nice and there were fresh towels. We booked twin beds, but got a (very large) double bed. Not really a problem for us, but it could have been. The beds were good, we slept fine. The only downside was that the walls were very thin, so we could hear the people in the other rooms talking etc. So I would recommend this place if you're looking for a cheap, simple room.

Dear hester, if you check your reservation, you see that you have booked the "standard twin private" with double bed, not the room with two beds ...


Location of the place is very close to airport(15 min), bus station(12 min) and train station(8 min),so it was very convenient to go to places however th elocution is far from the tower but we liked it because we were able to see the city and shopping area while walking through the city. Louigi the owner of the facility was good available most of the time.the only negative comment would be he speaks english but had difficulty understanding what we say.

Near to the train and bus station , the room was clean, big and lots of storage also a t.v which was a bonus. The shared bathroom is very clean and the shower ( in the bath ) was lovely. The breakfast tray and the breakfast is Italian continental ( pastry, juice box, biscuits and cake) I would of liked the option of maybe a piece of fruit or a yoghurt instead, but in terms of how much we paid the breakfast was fine (good coffee and tea) the only problem i had was that it was quite noisy at night


Quite basci, but clean and good value for money. The host didn't speak good English, but he was very helpful. The breakfast is in a bar downstairs, just a cup of coffee and croissant, but it was okay. Quite far from the Piazza dei Miracoli, but close to the airport and railway station.


Helpful and friendly staff, hostel very close to the central station and 15 minutes walk from the airport, clean, not far from the center, very good breakfast.


It's quite far away from the center (but close to the railway station), otherwise, very clean, breakfast was excellent!

I would like to make a clarification. the historic center of the city of Pisa began in via san Martino, located just 5 minutes walk from the B & B Empedokles ...


We only stayed one night at B&B Empedokles but we had a good stay in Pisa. The manager Luigi was really friendly, the rooms were clean and breakfast was nice too.

Very good hostel. The room and bathroom facilities were clean and the host was very friendly. You also don't pay very much compared to what you get in return.


+ Very clean rooms , clean private toilets, friendly staff, good breakfast - 10~15 minutes walk from train station we had great stay , will definitely go again


the staff didn't speak english


The owner, Luigi, was very nice and even suggested a place to eat that is owned by his friends. We ate there for two people for 13 Euros. It was a full meal of pasta and wine too! The room was nice, clean, and realtively big. The only issue we had was there wasn't any airconditioning and if we opened the window, mosquitoes would come in. With that taken into account, I would recommend this place.


Very good place to stay. We had very big room and our private bathroom. Everything was very clean and calm. Very good breakfast every morning - large choice and the hosts was nice as well. I really recomend this place.

The room was clean and nice colors and curtain. Breakfast was quite good. Only that "ensuite" did not mean that you have toilet in your room as you could think. However the toilet and shower was clean.


This was a lovely place to stay - very clean and homely and new! It's also very close to the train station which was very convenient, and a short walk to the leaning tower. The hosts were very nice and friendly. I would definitely recommend staying here!
