No reception. You have to make a call on your phone to get into the building. Internet does not work. Toilets filthy. Guests are not travellers, but immigrant workers from Morocco who smoke hashish in the corridors whilst speaking loudly in French and Arabic. There is a serious lack of sockets. The owner does not speak Italian or English in an understandable intonation. He mispelt my name (I was 'Iana Semson' instead of 'Daniel Simpson). The place smells of socks. The location is okay.

Very dirty place, bad hospitality. U need to open two locks, but the host don't reply to u by email, u should call him in very dark night wasted lot of charge of ur phone and standing outside the building for a long time. Almost no host here, the guy who host u maybe just a friend of the host, not good at English and hard to communicate. Finally i left the money to host's bed because i left in a hurry, but he found the money very hard. So u know there is almost no reception.goog location though.


There is no 24h reception, or kitchen to prepair coffee/tea. No cable tv as it says on internet. The bathroom was very dirt, only positive point is that the linen was clean.

Location not hard to find but it feels creepy if arrive during the night walking alone to the house. The overall hyegine has to be improved, I can tolerate with the hyegine in the room but the one in the washroom is poor. Wifi works well and the owner is very friendly.


It was a really nice hostel The staff was friendly and the hostel is ideal if you need to travel early to the airport because it is located nearby the trainstation. I would definately go there again...

Such bad hospitality, the toilet is very very dirty and should improve alot in cleanliness, and should offer more facilities for the people who are going to stay in the future.


Very helpful receptionist


I usually don't write references and I'm not a picky traveler at all, but this time I almost regret I didn't sleep at the railway station or inside the airport. The dorm was crowded with beds (even a bunk bed with triple mattress down and double up. The 2 bathrooms had probably never been cleaned since days or maybe weeks and no toilet paper (after I aske for it I was given an almost finished roll). No reception, no other room. And main door always open till late night. But wifi worked fine.


Problem with the check in, but the host was cool and kind! Not very clean, but the location was perfect! Just a few minutes walk from the train station.


Hostel should improve facilities (hot water, door lockers, in future- breakfast). It would be nice, if stuff had their own room and reception are had own spot.


A very simple hostel. Missing a kitchen! The location and the charming owner, Carlo, though makes it worth staying there.


Its really bed... The bathroom was really bed, dirty and stinky and bugs . I don't really have a good time there... But the Owner is nice...
