    Favourite city in Italy, great food, great coffee, great people, lots to see, old world feel, and Giovanni will talk you through everything there is to do (and probably also how to make some nice pasta dishes). Will definitely stay here again at some stage.

    Giovanni was absolutely wonderful even if he couldn't quite understand my British accent! Wonderful cool and very kind and caring. I met some of the best people here. The hostel is more like a home and I haven't felt safer anywhere else. I wish I could have stayed longer!
