    This is my third year to stay here. The staff is friendly and helpful (one of the receptionists remembered me!). The rooms and common areas are clean, but the bathrooms could use more tending to. Breakfast is very simple but they have it! I just love the location being so close to the Duomo and city center.

    The location is PERFECT! It is close to the train station and everything else you could want to walk to. Even though they close the building from 11:30-2 everyday for cleaning, I found the bathrooms to never really be that clean. The breakfast offered was very basic but more than sufficient. The lockers in the bedrooms came with locks which were extremely helpful. I would absolutely stay here again.

    The hostel required that you were out between 11am and 2:30pm for cleaning, but the cleaners came and started mopping at around 10:30am so you couldn’t go into the room to take your bags after breakfast, and they were very rude. The location is great, though, and they had washing machines and tumble driers.

    Was able to make great friends in my room, but the overall security of the hostel was alarming. The only form of security to prevent randoms coming into our rooms was the main gate at the bottom of the building (you needed an access code to unlock the gate) - apart from that, the dorm rooms had no locks meaning anyone could come inside. There wasn’t really any atmosphere which is kind of hard when travelling solo. The location was awesome though.

    Aside from having someone at the front desk, there was little to no security as main gates were always open as was dorm rooms. The washrooms were terribly dirty and rooms not very clean either. Breakfast was terrible. Aside from two cereal options and some crackers with either Hazelnut spread or jams, there was nothing else. The coffee machine was out of order and the only other option was a large pot of instant coffee. The only decent thing was location as it’s central. Wifi is limited as well
