    It was a very nice stay, and the some of the staff were really nice to me! They made me feel welcome, and showed me to my room. I was in a dorm with a window out to the street - a bit loud in the day, but quiet in the night! The narrow streets are a bit shady, but I felt safe knowing that I had lots of keys! You should definitely book this stay!

    Staff were really helpful and friendly. Good kitchen which everything you need. Close to train station and attractions. Bed wasn't particularly comfortable but was no worse than your typical hostel. The biggest problem issue was in our room one of the shutters to keep out the light wouldn't close and it was right next to one of the alley lights so the room was very bright all night. Area feels a little unsafe if you were alone just walk the way the hostel instructs in their email to get there

    In a good location near lots of stuff. Staff is super helpful with tips, suggestions, etc. and clearly are excited to share info about their city. It feels a bit more private room heavy than hostel though. We rarely saw other people around and there were a lot of older (60+) couples. It’s not that there was a problem or anything, but just know what to expect if you’re a solo traveler hoping for social vibes.

    The hostel was in a good location of town and had all basic essentials such as a kitchen. It is worth noting that the kitchen had limited times of access due to the reception not being 24/7 - this was not so much of an issue for me. The staff were friendly and one guy really gave me tips of what to see and good food places to try for local cuisine! Overall a pleasant stay!

    Really, really loved this place. Fantastic reception from a young lady who told us loads about the area. Facilities were just what we were looking for. Pots/pans/plates/bowls/mugs/cutlery plus free coffee/tea & biscuits. A proper home from home. The area seemed a bit down-market and I would've been worried if a single traveller but once you know nobody means you harm, it's fine. The marina was close and the funacular taking you up to Righi was just up the road. I'd go back any day.

    Overall the hostel is good. Also, the staff was very friendly. It's just the location of the hostel. We felt it's a bit in shady area. But walkable distance from main railway station.

    The property and the facilities and the staff were all good. The area around the osteopathic did not feel extremely safe. I wasn’t afraid to go outside or anything but there were times when I felt that the area near the hostel was a little sketchy. Other than that, I had a good experience and would recommend this hostel if you want a calm experience with nice facilities.

    The hostel itself is okay, rooms are clean, staff is nice, there are several locked doors which make you feel safe but the hostel is located in a very shady area. As a female traveler I did not feel safe leaving at night. Kitchen is very well equipped. You can find everything you need, however the fridge was very dirty and 80% of it is used by staff. Also the kitchen closes at 10pm and common area at 11pm. For me it made it more difficult to meet people. Also the beds were creaking, no curtains.
