    Staff were friendly. Breakfast was great, it includes cheese, meat, croissants, cereal, fruits, and drinks. Was a little disappointed about the lockers. 2/4 lockers in the 4 mixed dorm did not lock, therefore in terms of security, it was not great. Overall acceptable.

    Great to support an ethical social co-operative. Clean, great location, big room. The sheets didn't fit the bed and there weren't many showers (but they were clean and powerful). Good to have luggage storage. No self-catering facilities. Breakfast good for gluten-free diet. Reception was inconsistently staffed. Lockers fit 55L rucksack. Sink in room

    Good location, not too central but only 15 minute walk to main piazza and walking distance from bus and train station. Helpful staff. Only downside was how hot the room was, no AC and the fans provided did not help much. Not much of a social area but when the breakfast and dinner area is open it’s great

    This hostel was fine. It was the off season so nothing was really going on. The location is about a 10 minute walk to downtown and 10 minutes from the train station. It was a good value for the price. Nothing amazing but a solid choice.

    Albergo Pallone was fine, except that it was incredibly hot. I had to ask the woman downstairs for another fan, since there is no AC and the fan already in the room barely worked. She and the little boy hanging out at reception with her brought it up about 30 mins later, which I appreciated. It was also slightly frustrating that not all of the bathrooms were working - I had to walk all the way to the opposite end of the hall to use the bathroom because the toilet closest to me was it of order.

    Short walk from the train and bus station ans well as from the city centre. The included breakfast is amazing. Downsides: the bed was not the most comfortable, some of the staff don't speak much English (they try their best to help though). All in all wouldn't mind staying again.

    Beds are very noisy. Plan on loud metal rubbing when trying to get into bed or out of it.

    Location was good for the centre of the city and train station. The staff were very friendly. At check in we actually got put in a double room instead of a dorm which was a nice surprise to have our own space. The only negative really was the kitchen as there were no facilities to cook food other than. A microwave. It wasn't clean enough to want to cook either. The atmosphere was dead. Otherwise a good place for a couple of nights.

    Good location, comfortable beds, good wifi, friendly people and, despite there being no air conditioning, the 3 fans provided kept it cool overnight. I thought the bathrooms could have been cleaner, especially the shower unit in the disabled bathroom. But overall, a good experience

    We stayed in a 4bed room, it was okay but the mattress was a bit gone, it was very warm but there were some ventilations in the room. The breakfast was very nice, mostly sweet, like common in Italy but also some cheese and ham and -for sure- awesome coffee or cappuccino. The bathrooms were clean but have seen better days.
