The main square, piazza Unità, is at 5 minutes walk and the nightlife is literally out of the door. Inside, all the precious details of the 19th century building meet the minimalist handmade furnishing and some vintage touch.

The so called Cittàvecchia neighborhood is at 500 metres distance from the main square and offers shops, bars, restaurants, but also atm, supermarket, pharmacy... Nearby you can find interesting art galleries, museums (Revoltella, Sartorio, Marine Aquarium, Oriental Art, Alinari Image) and Salone degli Incanti exhibition hall.

    It's a beautiful Hostel! Someone there really knows how to do their interior design ;) I loved the common room with all the plants. Facilities were great (everything very new and clean), beds comfy and the staff was very friendly. There's nothing to complain about. I'd definitely stay there again.

    This is a great place, one of the top places in Trieste. I duly recommend the Hostel. is charming and great place to socialise. Breakfast part of the price of accomodation and recommend it as a good place if visiting the region.

    Even though I just stayed 1 night I loved it. The hostel is located in an old building in the middle of Trieste. The bed was super comfy and the atmosphere was so friendly. I was able to leave my luggage in the hostel till 6pm which was a huge plus for me. If you like hiking I recommend Opicina. There is a hoke from a monument to a church and back. you get a picturesque view over the Mediterranian sea.

    This place is amazing! Great location, very safe/large baggage storage in the rooms, bunk beds are sturdy with a lot of room for both beds as the ceilings are very high in the building. The location is amazing (next to Eataly, walking distance to the Piazza, near the ferry stop). The staff are awesome and provide amazing tips and insights into the city's offerings. Typical traditional inclusive hostel breakfast (mostly cereals and jams/breads, juice, coffee). Only downside is no air con.

    I want to be able to give this place a 10, because the staff were wonderful and I loved the vibes! However the bathrooms were far too small. If you want to do anything other than get wet in the shower, find somewhere else. I also had to awkwardly move from the shower to the toilet in order to not get wet whilst getting changed or break a bone. Speaking of toilets, if you’re over 6ft, when you sit down your knees will hit the door.
