I didn't find the staff very helpful, instead of helping me by making a short call to a tour group, they told me to go find a pay phone. The room was nice and had air conditioning, but there was only wifi in the main common areas on the ground floor. Overall, not a bad hostel with a good location, but it wasn't very social while I was there and was overrun by a group of French teenagers the entire time, so it was hard to meet anyone.


We had a great 2-night-stay at your place. Enjoyed the location in the centre of Cagliari and the service in the 6-bed-dorm!

a little bit of heaven on earth. Only problem is how to get there and back, but we solved these issues quite easily. The host is extremely friendly and the facilities are more than one needs!


The recepcionist was not as kind as we expected and the breakfast was poor. the roon was very good.


The rooms are big enough that the hostel could easily add lockers to the dorm rooms for added security.


Great location , 10 minutes from bus and railway station. in the centre of the old part of Cagliari. Large clean rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Will definitely recommend it and if I came to Cagliari again would stay there. This was my firSt experience of an Italian HOSTEL - vERY GOOD.

A fairly decent place to stay on the cheap in central Cagliari. The rooms are a bit drab, and there's the occasional cockroach, but they have good air conditioning and decent bathroom facilities. The breakfast is a bit poor, and isn't always served for the full time they say it is. Plus some of the stuff they serve (yoghurts, non-watery fruit juice) actually costs extra.

It maybe never was the intention to implement a kitchen in the hostel concept of Marina, but I would prefer having a kitchen that may be used by the guests. All other facilities were perfect!


Excellent place for backpackers ;) comfortable, clean, and spatious... in the heart of the city center


No kitchen. breakfast in caffe but not always at the same place. 1 Croissant, one cup of caffe and one juice is not a breakfast. Clean place. Beds small but new and nice. AC Works OK. Value for Money. Location in the heart of town.


for the 5 night i has been there no one's clean the floor under my bed, is was alots of dust, the celling was from wood and was alots of dust as well there, they did have problems with terminal, i did pay by card money was charge from my card but they told me they dont recieve any money, sny eay was take 3 days to resolve the problems


Everything was nice, but it was a huge hostel and didn't really have a very hostel-like feel. Staff was fabulous though.

There is no kitchen and no common room. The bar is only opened for breakfast.


Very beautiful hostel in a wonderful location in the historical center. The female room for six persons is very, very spacious and full of atmosphere with two bathrooms inside. Definitely the best hostel room I have ever stayed.
