    Super friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Location is perfect. Everything clean and well-decorated. There is a lot of space in the dorm rooms and a great view on the harbour. I'd come here again for my next stay in Triest :)

    Best hostel ever :) With a view of the harbor from the bigget room, very central, and with such lovely staff! Always friendly and open to giving tips about anything. There's also a living room/bar, that even has some instruments! Towels and padlocks (for the lockers) are not provided, but can be rented for 1 euro. It's a 20 minute walk from the train station, but still quite central. I really liked the blackboards with various useful local tips on them too! Great vibes at this hostel!

    Absolutely loved this hostel, brilliant atmosphere and general vibe. Common areas were a bit quiet at times but I think COVID is partly to blame for that. It's a bit far from the station but other than that the location is great, Trieste is small enough to walk everywhere anyway. The no alcohol except what you buy from them at the bar is kinda annoying but other than that I was very happy with my stay.

    Only stayed the one night when I got stuck in the City, however it did the job! The top bunks are super high, and there wasn’t a surface/table in the room for 10 people, but other than that it was nice!

    Brilliant little hostel about 20 minute walk from the train station. The staff were second to none and this is the only hostel that supplied breakfast inclusive of the price despite covid. The rooms have a quirky/hipster feel which reflects the city well. Would highly recommend!

    Really nice hostel, beautifully decorated and perfectely located in the city center. The breakfast was good and the selection bigger than I expected. The only negative point is that it was extremely hot and there was no AC or fan in the room. Also it was really loud, as there are bars around the hostel and the glass container was directely under our window... If I stayed here again I would not choose room B, otherwise I can recommend Controvento!

    A little hard to find. The 10 person room I was in was incredibly spacious with views of the sea. Pre or post covid this would be a great hostel, the common space is nicely laid out with great decor and its walkable to the station and other bits you would need to get to. Common space closes at around 10, not sure of thats a regular thing? Athmosphere was a bit off but then that can be more down to the types of people staying there rather than the actual place. Cannot really fault the place.
