    Absolutely great spot to be for tourists. 10 minutes walk from the train station and right on the doorstep of the biggest attractions. Rooms were great. I would definitely recommend.

    I hate writing reviews, but I had to brag about the staff here! The workers were super accommodating and so so nice. I was eating dinner on the terrace and someone gave me a couple of sweet croissants for dessert! I had a super early check out the next morning and the same man was working the counter, and he let me eat breakfast before it opened and gave me a few more croissants for the road! Location is right next to the duomo and the facilities are clean and cozy! Wish I stayed longer!

    Had a wonderful experience here! Definitely on the quieter side, which is great because there is so much to do in the city and it encourages you to get out and explore. Everything was very straightforward and very clean, the staff were excellent and the 24-hour reception is a life saver. Highly recommend!

    Overall, everything was good. They provide a simple breakfast and lockers. The cleaniless was good too. The staff were friendly and helpful. The security was poor as the front gates can be entered as anyone pressing the bells, there’s no locks for the rooms too. However, you can keep your valuables in the lockers (locks and keys provided).

    It was my second time staying here and I would probably stay a third time. Most (2 of 3 for us) were very friendly. The room we stayed in was very large but seemed dated compared to my first visit. The WiFi in the rooms was quite bad, but that wasn't a problem for me. It was all single beds, so no bunk beds during either visit.

    Everything was good, the staff was really friendly and helpful, breakfast was included in the charges. Just one caveat: there were bed bugs. And I suffered major bites from them until a couple of days later only to realise that there were beg bugs. Maybe this could be checked every once in a while. For the rest, it's a great place to stay at(primarily because of the location).

    The hostel is located at a covenant place where all the historic sites are at. The only thing I didn’t like was the lack of electrical outlets and the hot water source for bathing is scares. Overall, the staff is helpful but the facility needs some improvement.

    Room I booked had NO heating system!The lady@reception told me that they will fix it. At night it was still cold so I asked the man who was at reception to fix the issue but he kept on insisting that there are pipes in the wall heating the room(they were not).eventually,he moved me to another room. I could not sleep the whole night because of drunk people shouting,smashing things in the streets!It got super cold in the middle of night so I checked the radiator near me and it was switched off!
