ostello pessimorispetto ai quindici ostelli provati in giro per l'Europa, unica cosa carina è il salone comune all'ingresso dell'ostello, per il resto avevamo effettuato un prenotazione unica per sette posti(come sempre) e ci hanno diviso in entrambi le stanze con altre persone maleducatissime. Pulizia dell'ostello scarsissima soprattuttto nei bagni che cmq erano scarsi, colazione da evitare, inoltre per il deposito bagagli cauzione da pagare, non mi er MAI CAPITATO DI TROVARMIO COSI MALE IN UNA


Free breakfast was awesome, bathrooms were clean and tidy. The only issues I found were regarding the lack of a power socket close to the beds and the temperature of the rooms, which were way too hot.


Good Location, nice staff. I stayed in 16 bed room, thought it was a crazy idea but actually the stay was quite fine. If you are looking for a bed and nth more than that, its a gd idea to stay here.


I found the hostel a little dirt and the shower is a nightmare... you get like 5 seconds of water, so it is a struggle to take a shower... In the bedrooms there isn't a power outlet for everybody... Staff was nice and the breakfast is good.

Thanks for your comments , Sorry t hear you were dissaapointed with certain aspects . We do have push button showers to help the enviroment and to encourage our guests to be mindful of other guests waiting but we will review the time available. Since the use of devices has skyrocketed there has been increasing demand for Power outlets and we would love to have lots more .In the meantime our reception staff will happily charge laptops etc should you need


The friendly and welcoming atmosphere surely made this short trip amazing. Towels, Adapters.. we didn't lack a thing. Definitely would stay there again!

Great to hear!


atmosfera piacevole e conviviale! mancano gli spazi vitali, le basi di appoggio, li appendini. sarebbero necessari degli spogliatoi. la cucina è disordinata e iena cibo ammassato. il wi-fi è disponibile solo nella hall, non nelle camere!!!

Annoying that there were no lockers in the room but they were in the basement; also had to pay to use them. Staff was helpful and friendly but could use another person at the desk. Breakfast was meh- we chose not to eat it.

Thanks for your review. Our 24 hour security lockers are €2 per day but it does mean you can leave luggage after or before check in/out if you have a late flight or arrive early . We would love to have lockers in the rooms also. Our Breakfast is free and light but if you want to cook something more substantial there is also the Self catering Kitchen. Glad you found our staff good


Kitchen not that clean but rooms, linen and bathrooms very goods. Free breakfast perfect.

Thank you for kind comments The Kitchen is cleaned twice daily , but we do ask guests that they leave clean and tidy for other guests - unfortunately not all are as considerate as we would like.
