This place is kind of strange. It's hard to find checkin, it's done through a different hotel. The staff doesn't speak any English, essentially none, which made it hard when getting the key deposit back and canceling a night. We had two beds in a four bed room, it was fine. It was clean enough and the wifi worked pretty well. It's not a great location in terms of sights, but it was safe and is right next to the Yellow. It was fine for one night.


I only stayed at this hostel one night, but i had a great stay. + : wifi is good, good location, restaurants and supermarkets just a few minutes away. The shower and toilet were good and clean. They could aslo lock. The kitchen was enough for only one night. The beds were confortable and the staff was nice. - : like just said, the kitchen was only enough for a night or two i think. There wasnt enough ustensils, and also no sharp knife or kettle.


It was surprisingly easy to find the hostel considering what I had read in other reviews. The staff was nice. No AC though which made our rooms a little on the warm side with only a fan. Overall good place and close to the train station.


The place is nice and clean, the bed was comfortable... it was a perfectly nice place to sleep. However, the staff doesn't speak English and everything is pretty basic. Location is nice, but the hostel is a little bit hard to find, especially with the unclear directions from the hostel's website.

The place is great, they have kitchen and common area to use. The worst thing was not the location itself, but the difficulty to find the hostel, there is no sign, and it´s actually the reception of a Hotel. The receptionist doesn´t speak english, but everything was clean and, as I said, they have a lot of facilities, considerying a place where to cook and where to eat.


Is good but you must know speak Italian or spanish could work. English is useless there.


The hostel is ok. The rooms are clean and you have nearly everything you need, but the staff and the place in general is outdated. Everytime we needed something we had to speak to an old man who didn't speak english or any language than italian, so we never had what we needed. I booked a room of 6 beds, mix, me and my friend ended up in a 3 beds room, wich was not what we wanted. Also the hostel is really hard to find, you have to go to the Corallo hostel and talk to several people to find it.
