I've never seen such a dirty place, and the toilets broken.


I have seen a lot of "budget" places, but this was one of the worst stays of my life. And it is not even so cheap. I would like to say, that is not fair, to show different pictures on your website than is in reality and it would be nice from you, that you sometimes check what are you offer and even take some money for that.


I was met by a quite shabby-looking guy who put efforts, but also had the atmosphere of being drunk or hung-over. Bathrooms average Loudly closing doors disturbed during the night


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.
