Nadia is the perfect host. she gave me all sorts of advice about the city, and went way beyond expected to help me. the atmosphere was lovely with her and the other guests
awesome hostel, super clean and well managed. also very good location
awesome place, with all you can possibly want. only downside is that it's hard to reach with public transportation.
I was quite happy about the structure of the place; but on the very first night, someone broke in my room in the middle of the night and stole my phone and 2 others in the room. The manager claims it's not their fault. While it's true that criminals exist nonetheless, the hostel has a really poor security policy: a password to enter the building (that any criminal can observe a guest typing), no staff is there at night, and each room has an old school key, that can be copied easily.
the facilities are simply amazing, the building is really cool and the rooms are nicely decorated and spacious, specially on level 5. people are super friendly and the tours are a must do. I made lots of friends there. downside: is that the Internet didn't work at all during my whole stay, they just have one public computer, one of our toilets light didn't work at all so we could only use during the day.
Cosimo is the best host I ever had. the retired and decided to open the place just for the fun of it, not so much to earn money (that's why the price is so low); he also lives there, so he makes sure the place is real cosy and functional: from the Internet working well, to nice showers, plenty of drinks, etc; among other things: he for sure goes well beyond anybody would expect of him. the only (minor) downside is that he tends to engage in long rantings; but that comes with the territory.
The facilities great and the location is pretty good... but remember the place is a party hostel, downstairs they have bar where they play music quite loudly until late. If that's what you are looking for, this is a great place, otherwise, it's hard to have a good night sleep. was only disappointed with the lack of proper lockers for your valuables. They only have lockers under the bed, that seem easy to get into. But overall, the place is pretty good
Awesome place. There you have the option to party hard or just relax. The facilities are clean and efficient. And there is a bike rent rack a few meters away, so I could easily come and go.
