the atmosphere is just great, even when Fabio is not there all day he is always trying to help you by email or phone, the location is excellent beacuse is just 4 minutes aways from the santa maria novells train station, there are plenty places to eat at any time even a mcdonald 2 minutes away.


"Staff" never really around. Don't waste your money here

The system is really good, the guy opens the door for you when u call (or when arranged) cause there is not reception. This is not a "hostel" but a house for students. Important: The kitchen is "fake", there is not even a spoon and there are JUST two glasses... this is not the place to cook your own meals, not coffee, not salt, not oil, no nothing. The bathroom is big, cool shower. The location is perfect, close to the main train station and the Cathedral. The internet reception is perfect.


The worst hostel and staff in the world!! I can't tell you so much.. If you wanna know how bad it is, you should have a try..then you will understand why I was so angry with the staff and hostel..

I arrive there during the night and the reception was close, the morning after, at 10 a.m. the guy came inside of our room without nock to the door and basiclly throw us out of the room because he saied he have to clean (never happened to me before) I mean we was inside of the bed!!!!!! he was very rude and impolate and made us pay an extra for the bed line, that we found yet in the bed when we arrived...the location is super good but ...you have to ask before how the rouls work
