They charged a city tax of 2 euros instead of 1 euro mentioned in the description. Staff was extremely unfriendly. Also, they made us stay in another property called Hotel Ottaviano and the description doesn't match the facilities offered. They charge even for Wifi/


A dingy place, with too many beds for one room. Shower in the middle of the room. Nice staff just over priced and for small dirty room.


I would never stay here again. They crammed three beds into this tiny little room, my bed was a cot. The door was near impossible to lock and gave me the wrong key on the first day. The door into the apartment was hard to open and close fully which resulted in my finding it open numerous times. People downstairs would ring the buzzer a million times in a row to the apartment trying to get in. Bathrooms disgusting. There was no toilet paper for two days even after asking. No soap in the bathroom.


There is no kitchen which is quite inconvenient for such an expensive city, but they have microwave and dishes, so you can actually manage to do something. Incredibly polite receptionist, very helpful as well.


actually when I got there, I was allocated in a place called Pensione Octaviani. but since I had booked a room for 6 and they put me in a room for 4, I had no complaints. very close to the train station and the city center. staff speak bad english. it is not a party hostel (which was good for me).


The shower in our room was broken and we had to remind then there times about it. The room was dirty and the people at reception never seemed to show that they were exactly trilled to be working. The location is good. However very confusing to find the hotel as they have two different buildings!!!! One for reception and another for the rooms. I would go somewhere else for the money your spending!


Its the worst hostel i have ever seen. And we went to hostel but we didnt stay there hostel staff put us another bad hotel and didnt say anything before this situation.


It's nice and great location, easy to find.


Everything was average except location was amazing!


This hostel was ok, had a real nice patio, but you couldn't smoke in it. It's located in an apartment building, so normal conversation in the common room upset the neighbors. Another thing to note, there were tons of mosquitos. Not the hostel's fault, but it was not comfortable at all. Maybe you will luck out, and they will transfer you to one of their other hostels, it was much nicer.


The lock of the door to our room was very old and sometimes it was hard to open or close it. Also 3 of 6 sleeping places were cots that are not very convenient for the normal sleeping. Another problem I had was an air conditioning system that was impossible regulate so I got a cold there. In addition wi-fi signal didn't reach our room. But all that minor issues are completely compensated by the location and price of the hostel that are absolutely perfect


Doesent look like in the internet, the rooms are small, the kitchen contains just a microwave. Bad value for money, for about 20€/night there should be soap in a clean bathroom. The only nice things are the location and the friendly cleaner.
