This hostel was absolutely shocking. Staff were extremely rude, the directions are very ambiguous and so we ended up roaming around the streets for hours - possibly our fault but the instructions were very unclear. Included breakfast is pathetic. No warning of the mosquito infestation they have, so my boyfriend and I woke up after our first night absolutely covered in bites. The reception did nothing about it when we told them. This place is HORRENDOUS, pay a little more for a nicer hostel.

"Air-Condition" they say. Well, they had one right there on the wall in the rooms, but it did'nt work, not even if you plugged it in... The common room was good in this hostel, the staff did no more then they had to, the location is not the best. A little long to walk into the city centre. Good thing with the bar at the rece and pool table/table tennis. Toilets was ok, showers were a joke, barely any pressure in those pipes :p Buut, it's a good place to meet people I guess so it's ok after all.

I had to wait like 1 hour to check in (I arrived on time to do the check in) but I don´t know what happened with the staff because I saw so much disorganization between them. It´s an average hostel, nothing spectacular.

If you can afford to spend a few Euros somewhere else avoid this place. The place was run down the showers were dirty and tiny with no way to adjust the temperature. You simply turn it on and hope hot water comes out. The staff was rude, unorganized and constantly arguing among themselves. The impression i got was that they seemed to hold their guest in some kind of contempt. The common area is nice enough, also dirty, but at least it promotes a social atmosphere.

I liked the atmosphere that the Zebra hostel provided. Some good restaurants down the street from it and not a bad walk from the hostel to the Duomo and other main parts of the city. Breakfast was also provided which was nice!

Me and my friend had the worst experience over there with the staff making you feel unwelcome plus the bathroom borderline insanitary and to top it all money got stolen in my friend's locker while being out. We definitely knew who did it but they were not enough proof even though he is the only one who stayed in the room on the camera. So if you have no where else to go it's perfect otherwise don't go there.

Owner Comment (Hide)
We are sorry for that but there is a FREE safe box in front of the reception 24h with CCTV on it. This is useful for things such as money, passport, mobile phone. You should have use it.

Hostel itself was not in the best location, since it was nearly a 15 minute walk to the closest metro station. The dorms were very loud and the walls are paper thin, so don't expect much more than what you pay for. As for socializing, the lobby area was a great common place and everyone was always sitting down there discussing their travels with new friends.

Facilities are fairly basic but very clean and organised. Entryway is a bit intimidating but don't fear, the atmosphere is actually very easygoing, lively and friendly. Pro tip, bring your own lock for the lockers so you don't need to purchase one

The Hostel looks like somebody took care about the Hostel and spender much Energy in it, but after some years the owner changed…. It's dusty, pretty warm all the time - impossible to have a room with any privacy because it is so full - even in the big lounge.. I really would just recommend it for sleepovers - The Employers are as friendly as they have to.

旅馆厕所少,洗澡房也少,而且洗澡房的水还是乱喷的,门锁不上,洗澡水流不走,洗个澡满地都是水。房间是门是没有锁的,不管是谁只要想进就进,特别没有安全感,里面的空调26°,热死了,第二天早上是被热醒的!!!起来的时候床上还有虫子!!!!受不了这样的旅馆!!不推荐去!

The toilets were not cleaned up properly and shower where very bad. The room that I stayed in was with out an ear-conditioner and the window was blocked by the bank-bed so you cannot open it widely which was unconformable as it was summer and the degree over 30, and the other thing is that the bed was so horrible and uncomfortable. The atmosphere was nice, the location wasnt that bad and staff member were very helpful.

Very good hostel. Easy to meet people and all facilities are good, just an awkwardly shaped bathroom and shower. If you're looking to meet people in a cool environment you should come here.

The hostel is in general great, good atmosphere and everything else. But the AC in our bedroom was not working, so now in the summer with no AC was like hell, extremely hot inside; even more because it was a bedroom for 10 with only a small window... the location is quite good near to a metro station and you can go walking to the duomo

Overall good experience. The common area is one of the nicest I've been in, and there's plenty of space to interact with other guests. I found the hostel generally clean and well maintained, and it was nice to have the free breakfast included. Security may be an issue for some guests, however. They are very secure on who enters the hostel, but after that there are no locks on any of the rooms - there are lockers provided though.

Not an overly clean feeling hostel and it just felt loud, probably a combination of it being loud and the decorations. It was a thoroughly average hostel. It was all fine, but I didn't love anything.

The staff were not welcoming or helpful. The showers were disgusting! Not only was there no temperature option, but the water just kind of spit out at you. The doors did not shut (a problem when you're naked) and the water from the left shower flows into the right shower. In my six girl dorm there were only 2 plugs. It's 2014, virtually every person has at least one device they need to charge over night.

Good hostel. Far away from the city center though. Clean and nice bar.

Toilets in the male bathroom were in terrible condition. Room was very poorly lit and didn't match their pictures.
