You should add some lockers.. also closing the door at 1 a.m. is exaggerating


the staff were very helpful with info about the buses in to the center and welcoming. The location was convenient, just opposite the train station.


Had the weirdest experience here. Didn't really know who worked there and who didn't, staff would fight in front of everyone. You had to share a key with the people in your room which you had to leave hanging at the front desk (easy for anyone to take) Rooms weren't anything special. Atmosphere was horrible, people who stayed there all seemed like locals who were also very strange. Communal showers. Felt really uncomfortable staying here! Lucky we only had one night here..


It was very conveniently placed near the train station so it was very easy to find once I got off the train. It also had a bus stop that brings you straight to the port outside of the hostel so that was really good as well! There is a sweet lady working at the front who directed me to the lovely beach of portonovo, and I had no problems checking in. It's very clean and comfortable.

Its in front of the trainterminal, but the place its not to good. Staff is very good!


Good location, that is all. The staff do not speak in English or Spanish, just Italian, it was not very clean. There was no air condition and it was very hot in the city. There is no locker in the room and in the social area. I do not recommend.


DO NOT STAY HERE IF YOU VALUE YOUR SAFETY!!! There is only one key for each room so our 6 person room stayed unlocked all night. Anyone can walk in off the street and up to the rooms (no security at all). A random person walked into my room, but left after they saw me...Neither of the shower doors lock and anyone can walk in on you. Also, the hostel disregarded that I paid a deposit and charged me the full price. There was only one outlet in the room, so good luck charging your phone. Nightmare!


We stayed at the hostel because we wanted to have some cheap days at the beach and therefore it was great. The Hostel is right at the main station, where there is a bus to Mezzavalle beach which takes around 30 minutes. To the city centre of Ancona you have to take a bus. Unfortunatelly the owner doesn't speak any english so the check in was quite hard but there is a woman who is able to speak english (but she's not always there). For the price the room was quite ok and clean.

Only really booked this hostel because it was the only one in the area. It's convenient as it's located only 5 minutes away from the train station but a bit further away from the port. Can't really complain much as it was the only hostel in the area so it had everything you really needed.


good just for 1 or 2 nights. no air conditioning. but in a good location and the staff are really friendly


Very cheap! Hostel is good as a fill gap for travelers using the ferry


Really boring place. If you're here, you're taking a ferry the next day. Do not come here for any other reason. This hostel serves that purpose quite well, but not much else.


Staff were friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere was relaxed and pleasantly enjoyable


This basic hostel is a great place to stop over while waiting for the ferry. Perfect location and minutes away from the train station and buses to the port. Dont expect too much from Ancona the city...if you have time to kill, go to portonouvo beach which is 40 min away on the bus and its stunning!!! The owners speak italian and not much english, so just be prepared but they are friendly :)


No air conditioning and fan during the heat wave period (burning 37degrees late into the night). It was practically cooking in the dorms so we had no choice but to leave the doors open while sleeping in our underwear. No lockers provided. Showers are clean and abundant.


There was no air conditioning, which made for very hot nights! And it would have been nice if the luggage cupboards could lock. Great location right by the train station, and lots of bathrooms and showers so I was never waiting for anyone

It's a nice hostel for a short stay, with friendly staff. Sometimes there's a language barrier but for the most part it's good. Rooms were cozy but very hot, nice big Windows so sometimes there's a breeze but it's very noisy. One key for the room but they have a good system so not a problem. Has a kitchen, the only thing I didn't lie was having to leave the room at 10am for a few hours of cleaning.


Greated with an impatient grumpy owner who was not willing to help us out much at all! Asked if there was breakfast served, he replied by pointing to a vending machine, need I say anymore


Basic hostel if you are catching a ferry, use of kitchen and Internet and room was very spacious. Nothing special but did the job


this hostels feels very run down and leaves a weird impression, as it's one of the official Italian youth hostel association this doesn't astonish one. I booked it only because it was the only one available in Ancona. Rooms/bathrooms are clean, but kitchen is a nightmare! Very dirty (no one cares !!!), not even plates available (only plastic dishes). Staff doesn't speak English properly and in lobby are hanging around black immigrants the whole day without recognizable reason. Frightening.
