There was no atmosphere, only three cook tops were going so we had a bit of a cue when it was dinner time, the guy at the desk didn't seem keen to be there, but there was another guy who was more helpful. It definitely wasn't the worst hostel but it's definitely a quiet one

Weird room design, male toilette is in front of a female dorm (16 beds !!!). not so clean, even though they spend hours everyday to clean rooms. lots of mosquitos as a bonus. But overall i like this place as it's well located, with a kitchen (it's rare in italy)

Easy to get to from the main train station. Bed was uncomfortable, but it's a very plain jane hostel!

It is necessary to describe there is no lift. It is hard to carry luggage through narrow stair.

Great location, loved the night receptionist who checked us in she was great. Nice room, clean and comfy. Plenty of bathrooms to go around and good, simple breakfast. Would stay again.

Was an ok stay, not much of an atmosphere even though there is a large common area beside the kitchen. The kitchens pretty small for lots of people, the bathrooms were average, but at least there were lots showers and toilets. Would maybe stay again or try somewhere else. Best thing is the supermarket practically next door to the hostel.

Located within the city center and it is convenient to walk to all the places. The staff seemed to be quite busy with admin work, it took some time for them to come to you to answer your questions, but they were friendly.

The location was great. At the other side of the river. With quaint shops and beautiful neighbourhood. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely recommend this place. :)

Stayed here for 3 nights in a 6 bed female dorm. Room was large, beds comfortable, and lockers (although on the small side) fit my book-bag nicely. Located right next door to a supermarket so you are able to get food/drinks as needed to save money instead of eating out. Hostel is about a 15 minute walk from the train station, not too far away to make it a hassle but just far enough off the beaten path to have a nice quiet night's sleep.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, beds were comfortable enough, but the showers weren't great. Everyone staying at the hostel was very friendly though. I was very close to a lot of vwry nice things to see, but not sureounded by other tourists and the area had a nice vibe. I would stay here again.

There were lots of brochures so I found a few great things to do. Staff were lovely and helpful. Good location. Felt safe. Comfortable bed. Lots of mozzies. Not very good showers..and there was a bandaid in one.

Good location for the station and the city. The staff were very helpful in advice and recommendations. Room had lockers for security but the bunks weren't very stable. Shower and toilet was clean. Hostel slightly Faulty Towersesque in feel with stairs up and down - a maze. Small terrace - too small for hostel size. No common room for meeting others and breakfast not included.

It has a good kitchen and a large common room area. But it's really dirty, the wifi is terrible, and the showers are really far away from the rooms. The lockers are small (your backpack won't fit, but big enough to store valuables). Hard to be social because the rooftop terrace is tiny and closes early. There is an annoying lockout from 10-2 and a curfew. Don't come here if you like to party. Friendly staff though and great location.

Friendly hostel staff. Overall is a good hostel. One demerit point is that the female shower cubicles drainage system needs to be improved as when someone is showering the water is unable to drain off properly creating a mini flood...

Nice hostel in the most perfect location. Nice kitchen to cook meals. Could have better wifi and they could dust a bit more but overall nice place. Didn't like that they locked you of the rooms from 10-2 and needs more outlets
