you have your own lockers, and bed side table that locks up. the showers are open showers, no cubicles. not much around to go eat, there is a supermarket close by. I'm pretty sure some people live there as well. in different rooms though,


We stayed there only for one night. Although it was overpriced, as the rest of hostels in Italy, we didn't want to stay longer because there was a extrange atmosphere... we think people live there. You have to share open showers. Wi fi does not work properly, very poor service. It is allowed to smok all over the hostel...


I can't use wifi in the last two nights. The staff only told me wait a moment . But I wait for two days! It still not work. The people always smoke inside. The bathroom and toilet is not clean . If you only like to stay here for sleep. I think it's the OK place but the atmosphere is really not good and very strange.


Seemed more like a halfway house than a hostel with some rather odd local characters and the fact that it used to be a school makes it even stranger. The dorm rooms are basic but you don't need anything more. The school-style toilets and communal showers, most of which dribbled water out, needed a good clean (I kept flipflops on in the showers). Wifi is poor and the common room is a school staff lounge complete with dodgy coffee machine. But the manager was very helpful and friendly.


despite all the bad voices and comments, we decided to go, just for one night. it was really a very good decision!! the hostel is full of colours, clean and very comfortable. in our room there were five other people: all of them were respectable of the others, and there was no noise outside. we also received a map and a little explanation of the city from the receptionist.. cool!

This hostel is very good id you are travelling witj budget and just want a place to sleep. For that koine hostel is good! Place is very big and some of the people might live there perminetly. Okey staff but the mens bathroom was always terrible un clean. People were also smoking inside exm. In the bathroom while showering. But still we would go again because of the low price.
