Carpe Diem -B&B and Ostello della Gioventu
We now also offer a Day hostel service. If you arrive early in the morning (and most of the ferries depart in the late afternoon or early evening) we can provide you with transport to and from the hostel/train station/port/beach, hot showers, bed (clean sheets included), luggage deposit, and anything else a weary traveller would need for their day stay in Bindisi. The day stay rate is 7.00 Euros all inclusive. (Train station luggage deposit and a shower in any public facility would cost about 8.00 Euros without extra services).
Our young, English speaking personnel will make sure that youll find a warm, welcoming, international, and relaxed atmosphere. We offer everything you may need for the perfect break during your trip. The building itself is open, spacious and airy, and there are places to relax, read, enjoy the sun, and of course there is a vibrant social atmosphere at no extra charge.
We are also close to the beach and harbor and provide daily trips to the beach, drop off and pick up in time to catch the ferry.
There is no lock-out. There are 2 TVs (satellite) and the occasional film to enjoy. There is also music and caring staff. The atmosphere here is very homey and enjoyable: you won't want to leave!
Our facilities include internet access, phone (we sell phone cards if needed), laundry, library & book exchange, bar/caf (open reeeeaaally late), private parking, darts & basketball, and a cozy fireplace to warm yourself and socialize by when its cold. There are also delicious home cooked meals for lunch and supper (served outside under canopy in the summertime) some of which are local favorites, and a small breakfast of cakes, fruit, juice or coffee. (Breakfast is included in room price)
The bar and caf are private and prices are cheaper than local bars.
***We require 48 hours notice for any cancellations, changes of dates or length of stay to all bookings or you will be charged for your entire stay booked.***
