perfect location, beautiful and very original rooms. Very nice hosts/owners im guessing. Very safe place to leave bags. If I could i would stay longer. only 2 min away from Pisa Tower and all restaurants. Perfect, thanks a lot for all the help.

Reception and cleaning staff were all exceedingly friendly and the surroundings with the garden are lovely.

We recommend taking a taxi from the airport or train station. It would have been difficult to find on public bus. The location is amazing. In the heart of the city on a little back street one block from the Leaning Tower and surrounded by shops and cafes. The room was clean, as was the shared washroom. Shower was in separate room from washroom. The downside is that the bed was quite uncomfortable. It was fine for our 1 night stay, but we would choose a different place for a longer stay.

We didn't really spend much time in our hostel but it is super close to the leaning tower of pisa which was awesome!

The hostel has clearly the advantage to be in Pisa's center (which could be a disadvantage if you have a car, because you will have to pay for another parking expense (note that you are advised about this)). But the rooms are clearly really sad (but clean) and in the shared bathroom there is a very very very tiny flow of water (what everybody complaints about on the comments that I read after). I usually don't make comments, but I have been really disappointed by the staff pretending it was ok.

Loved staying here for the one night I was in Pisa. It's right around the corner from the Tower and had so much character to it. Plus there were super cute cats that hung out with my friends and I.

The drainage in our bathroom was poor so it flooded after each shower. Our showers were cold and Internet intermittent. However great rooms tastefully decorated and very friendly, helpful people. We would certainly stay there again.

10/10 for location. more like a 10-15 minute walk from the closest train station with luggage but easily doable & easy to find. rooms were neat. The double bed is 2 singles pushed together but we've found this to be quite common in Italy. The shower is basic. no basin, mirror or anywhere to hang your towel in the shower room & the toilet is separate. Ok for a short stay though. Staff were really helpful. one young lady at the reception that was so helpful. even calling trainlines to help us book

The staff was really nice to us. Location was impressive and the room was clean and well prepared. They have a really cute garden as well. Extra point for the nicest cat ever!! I will come back there, and recommend it to everyone ;)
