Very nice owner working there, he seems to be the person that likes his job. Localisation is excellent to reach the Leaning Tower, only few minutes away from the hostel. The facilities are good, you can use kitchen at any time and you will find everything what necessary there. The hostel is cosy, has only a few rooms and a nice atmosphere :) I definitely recommend it!


It's a decent and clean place, the location is good, and they have air con in the dorm, this hostel is tinned by a nice family, they are so friendly and helpful, actually it's one of my best hostel experience in Italy, highly highly recommended.


The staff were very friendly and helpful. The 6 bed dorm was a bit small with everyone's bags taking up the floor space. The beds were comfortable. Aircon was only allowed on during set times, which made the room hot during the day. The location is very close to the leaning tower and other attractions. It is a 30min walk from the central train station. There is also a large supermarket close, I wish we had access to the proper kitchen so you could cook, but the eating area provided was good.


Too many mosquitoes in the room. Bedding and mattresses seemed very well used. Bathroom floor always wet and dirty. Water in shower often did not work.


The staff were lovely! Even had dinner with them.


great little place to spend a few nights in Pisa! you could see the tower from our dorm window! the staff were very friendly and helpful, only down side is it was quite hot and the a/c in our room didnt come on until 9pm (automatic) which made a hot night, but other than that its a homely little hostel!


The hostel was ok. The bedroom was fine with a lovely view of the tower from the window. The bathroom could've been cleaner but as hostels go it was fine for somewhere to rest your head for the night.


very nice hosts, top location, good internet/eating facilities. Only lesser sidenof my stay is that te bathroom in te girldorm was dirty and smelled bad.

This is a lovely hostel that makes a day trip to Pisa worth it. From the beginning the directions they provide to the hostel from the train station are really comprehensive and easy to understand. The staff are very helpful and friendly, and the atmosphere of this hostel is really great. I've met people who have said this was one of their favorite hostels in Italy, and after visiting I can see why.


The guy who works Here is super lovely! He speaks 3 languages and was very helpful. This hostel is right near the tower of Pisa - bit of a walk from The bustop with all Of your luggage though in the heat. The bathroom In the room Is ok - but there is external bathroom too. Kitchen and outdoor facilities were nice too. Cute little place and nice and relaxing.


It's literally right outside from the Pisa Tower-about a 5 min walk away. Great facilities, comfortable beds, and perfect location. Great place to lay your head down at night!


Staff nice and friendly as well as helpful They do advertise that the air con isn't on all the time so can't complain about that but would recommend maybe just having it on all the time as it was soooo hot! They did however leave it on a little later than they said they would in the morning so that was a bonus! Bathroom was nice but got a bit flooded so could have done with a better drainage system for the shower or at least a bath mat and a mop! Perfect location to see the leaning tower :)


A very good family run hostel so close to the tower- you can see it from some of the windows! Fairly basic but nearly everything you need is there- wifi, fridge, maps- but there is no kitchen. A lovely roof terrace made making friends very easy! Would definitely stay again


Only stayed here literally for a night but it was super close to the Leaning Tower which was nice! The hostel was super clean and very cozy. Staff were very helpful.


Really nice hostel to stay close to the Pisa tower. The staff was really welcoming and made us feel at home. The rooms are nice and there is a cozy common area and garden with terrace. The air condition and good quality beds made this hostel one of the best of our trip! We can definitely recommend staying here.


Nice hostel, very close to the Tower. Staff is nice, rooms are clean and have AC on the night (very important in summer).


My stay was nice. The hostel is clean and located close to the leaning tower. It was very easy to walk from the train station and only took about 20cmin. The staff was friendly. The only negative is that the A/C doesn't go on until 9pm and shuts off around 7am. During the night it was fine (still a bit warm in the room for my taste) but during the day it's warm.


Really friendly and good facilities such as communal eating area and terrace outside. However the shower was disappointing (just a little trickle). Location is great just 3 minutes from the tower itself and the same to a supermarket. Around 20 minutes walk from the station.


Very friendly hostel, perfect for young travellers and for meeting new people. The owner was very nice and put the air con on in the rooms out with the usual operating time. Bring a decent sized padlock for the lockers but it feels very safe. The location is ideal - 10 minute walk at most from the tower! Staff very helpful and nice to chat to as well as being good for recommending eating places and the like. Beds very comfy!!


A bit far from Pisa Centrale. The hostel is very closely located to the Pisa Tower as well as restaurant/bar area. There were no kitchen appliances to cook. Wifi worked great everywhere. Staff was amazing and super helpful. The old guy checked me in and gave me recommendations on places to eat (I ended up finding a great restaurant) - he was very friendly! I would definitely stay here again!
