It was freezing cold, the heating was terrible. People weren't friendly and when I asked for a taxi to be booked, it wasn't and the manager was asleep so had to do it myself and I speak no Italian. Tbh wasn't very impressed.

The security is not great, anyone can walk on to the campus and the door handle on the 'hut' we stayed in was not very secure. The location is not good as it is actually on an island just off the mainland of Venice, as the staff were not too helpful we had to figure out which bus to take to get to the mainland and find the bus stops. Not to mention that the buses stop at 8.30 pm. DO NOT LET THEM CALL U A TAXI, the taxis they call go up by 10 euros every 4 SECONDS and was daylight robbery!
Really nice hostel, nice staff and a really cute cat=)
The location is a bit out of the city but close to lean tower - 5 minutes by bus, so it even could be the advantage. Staff are very nice and helpful, I just ask for the direction and the young guy there gave me a very detail of map, bus schedule with clear instruction. It is so important as public transportation is not really good there, quite few buses and the information on site is unclear. Thank you again for a nice time.
A student house the works like a hostel during vacation. Bring your own toillete paper, maybe we won't find any. It was difficult to find it at the first day, because we arrived after the sun set, and the Pisa public transport system is not the easiest to find out where you are and which bus stop you are looking for. Bus #5 to VIA DUE ARNI 1, or bus #6 to LENZE, #6 is much closer than #5. Verifiy it at google maps. The pizzeria at the cross Tomasso Rook, Due Arni has a very tasty pizza.
Because Pisa is small, I expected the hostel not to be that far so we walked. The problem is that the sidewalk ends at some point after the bridge and it's dangerous. You can also go around but that takes longer again. We took the bus on the way back. The hostel was ok, no kitchen for guests though. The bathroom was icky, the staff unfriendly but helpful. The room was nice, it lacked some power outlets though. No TV for this price of course, although there was one in the living room.
