Warning, the address listed on the site is only the lobby. The actual hostel is in fact clear across town and is not on the grand canal, about a twenty minute walk with luggage over steps. No access to reception, wifi, laundry, or an iron. Water pressure was poor. No character to speak of, drab building seemingly vacant. No value for price, don't be duped by the false address!
Great location, right around the corner from the train station and a five minute walk from duomo. Large room and little street noise.
Fantastic hostel experience. Large, quiet clean room. Breakfast included. Run by young couple who are very friendly and helpful. Andrea Boccelli drifts through the hostel in the evenings. Five minute walk from termini station, ten minutes from coliseum. Most major sights in walking distance. Elevator and in room wifi a plus. I would strongly recommend this for anyone.
Pretty far from most tourist activities, nearby metro station doesn't directly service museum district. Room was on the fourth floor with no elevator.
