Pros: clean hostel, comfy beds, fairly quiet room with air-con, large reception / sitting / eating / bar room. Outside sitting area with large TV screen. Computer. 5 minutes from railway station. Cons: non-stop muzac, unbearably loud in evenings.
Pros: enormous bed and sitting rooms, very clean, quiet (apart from wedding party next door until 04.00), Cons: No kitchen. Ignore directions to walk around walls unless you like a long walk. Head north and slightly left from Railway Station, into Old Town, to Anfiteatro and San Pedriano Church. Hostel a few metres from church. About 10 minutes' walk.
A strange place with no access from 11.00 to 16.00; `walk slowly` signs in the corridors; no noise after 21.00. Perfect for light sleepers like me.
Spoiled by non-stop noise pollution in the common area and inconsiderate hostellers: who thought it was acceptable to sort out the contents of a suitcase, with much rustling of polythene bags, at 22.30; spend an hour, until 23.30, with a light on doing something to her hands; come in and out of the room a number of times; switch a light on and hang up laundry at 00.45 and inform me she could put a light on anytime she wanted to; play with cellphone; a male came in at 01.30 and snored loudly.
clean,airy dorms with air-con and fan; toast and jam for breakfast; tea and coffee any time; helpful staff; Room 1 downstairs a bit noisy from traffic and reception next to the door.
Hostel was fine, mosquitoes were a problem. I had more bites in two days in Sri Lanka than two months in India. Yes, I did use repellant.
Very helpful staff. Free breakfast and email a bonus. Friendly cat!
