It was quite good. The bedding provided is not the best but it is sufficient. The bed was very wobbly and the possibility of it collapsing did occur to me. If I had had to share my room and someone had slept in the bunk below me then if either of us were to move the entire bed would have moved as well. The room smelt a bit but it was bearable. The location is quite good and the lady at reception was very kind in helping me to find a bus into the city centre.

Perfect if you're waiting for a ferry. Can't think of any other reason to be in ancona or that hostel...


I don't know why people have left such poor reviews because my experience was good. The lady at the reception was friendly and welcoming, there is a reasonable kitchen, and my sheets and room were clean. Only thing that wasn't good was lack of lockers. Also wifi only works in kitchen/common room but I've come to expect this with many hostels. You can't have it all. This particular hostel was extremely well priced and a decent place to crash for a night.


Just does the job of staying overnight for the ferry, wouldn't recommend for a vacation spot.


Worst place iv ever Been. Discusting. Staff we're rude and unhelpful, place was always so unhygienic, having to leave room between 10-3 stupid when it's not clean anyway. Worst place iv ever staid in my life !!!! Would never in a heart beat go back. place smelt so bad and staff we're so old shouldn't be working as they we're soooo unhelpful and rude!!!! Hated it!!! Only good thing was wifi


There was a gross smell in the bathroom. When we opened our window disgusting smells came in from outside but the room was to hot to keep the window closed.


You can open the doors with a finger nail, there's one single ring stove between 24 rooms, there is only plastic cutlery - no bowls. Not even a toaster. Friendly staff. No AC.


Basic hostel but decent for so cheap. It was further away from the port than I was expecting.


It was OK,

I have stayed in various hostel and this is the worst ever. There is no luggage storage (literally been asked to put our luggage in the dining hall), toilet has a distinct unpleasant smell, key is heavy as a stone. The only good thing I can think of is its good location. Shame that this is probably the only hostel in Ancona and most budget travellers wouldn't have a choice.
