There was no people traveling hostel. They were all workers staying there several days. No safe place to put in your value stuff. Dark and weard atmosphere. Very creepy. No separation in the showers.

Bad atmosphere. Staff in bad humour. Toilets unclean, without paper, do not have cover. No kitchen ok but they do no have even a bug. Poor wifi. There is a chance to be better but they seam not interested in.
Very strange hostel. Felt like we were staying at a mental hospital - many older locals flooded the place. Definitely worth it to pay extra to go elsewhere. Although, if it were a different time of the year it could be a better experience - we stayed during off season. I'm glad I was with a friend - Don't stay here as a solo traveler.
If you are visiting Salerno don't stay here spend a few extra dollars and stay elsewhere, The lights are off constantly through out the hostel, it smells like dirty old men and porridge, The wifi is really bad it only works in the lounge badly, The toilets don't have seats, The showers are communal, There are a whole bunch of old people who just hang around the hostel, Book somewhere else even if you are poor.
It's a weird place. It's not an hostel. It's a strange atmosphere difficult to describe. go there only if you are really poor and have no other choice.
Nice hostel, close from the train and bus station, nice staff and friendly atmosphere.
Friendly host. Cheap. Would stay there again if i came back to salerno.

This place it was a school , with big rooms , but The toilets are far away, the showers are communals, no privacity, but the bed was clean and comfortable with personal lockers, , no AC or fan. Also they have a weir wifi control. The direction they send to me was no clear, because the train station is on renovation and the exit is for other side of the bulding, wen you don't know the city that a big issue, I get lost and walk a lot to find the place.
Somewhat dodgy, with many random older people living there. Lights always off, no atmosphere, or welcoming environment. It is far from everything but the bus station. Locks weak, or broken on dresser. Cheap place to stay though.
Could have provided a fan maybe at least at the common area.
Clean, tidy and secure. Would be ideal for longer stays if fscilities such as kettle, toaster, microwave and fridge were available. Great for the price.
Overall the staff were very pleasant and very helpful, however there are a lot of older Italian men hanging around all the time, not sure if they live there or are staying there temporarily. The bathrooms are disgusting, there is never any toilet roll and the showers are not private, therefor having to shower either in a swimming costume or bare all to your neighbor, didn't like that. The location is good and only ten minutes from the harbor. 5/10. Not recommended for single travelers.
The hostel is shared with what appear to be local people who are struggling financially. I don't think they sleep in the same rooms (there weren't any in my room) but they do share (and dominate) the common area. A few were quite forward with one of the other girls staying there. For the price it's good. It almost has the feel of a hospital ward and there was lots of space in the rooms and big lockers (keys included), though I still didn't feel security was great. There are many shops nearby.
The showers have no stalls its just 4 or 3 in a row no partition. There are creepy drunk old men that won't leave you alone and continue to talk to you . There are older people who live there not a place to travel solo. The internet only works in the common areas but thats where the creepy guys are so you can stay there long.
