    The ControVento Hostel is one of the cleanest I have ever stayed in. The staff are all friendly, rooms are spacious and the 10 bed dorm has fine views out over the gulf. Hostel accessed via keycard and spacious lockers available. The kitchen facilities and lounge are all well kept. Breakfast is included and this was an added bonus for me. Overall, I highly recommend this hostel and I hope to be back.

    What a nice hostel! From the first moment you set foot in the place you can feel the positive vibes. The cozy decoration, the jazzy background music and the lovely staff. The facilities are great, with a well-equipped kitchen and a free breakfast. The beds were comfy, as well as the couches in the common area, where you can meet others easily. Only thing is that the floors can be a bit noisy as they are old wooden floors, but they provide free ear plugs at the reception so you should be fine!

    A must stay if you’re in Trieste. Location is unbeatable, tucked in between the sea and the busy main street full of restaurants and cafes, the staff is kind, helpful and gave us a lot of cool recommendations, it’s very clean, the folk there is a mix of locals and travelers, so you’re guaranteed to meet new people and the building is in and of itself a masterpiece.

    There was a great common area. Quite cool & funky. But it closes/gets locked up at 2300, which is odd. It’s just cozy couches & chairs. Leaving the cramped kitchen left to sit in only if your roommates are snoozing…or incredibly loud snorers like mine! Having that area open longer would have been great!

    Conveniently located facing the Adriatic sea and only a few steps away from Museo Revoltella and Eataly, Controvento is a hostel that boasts personality - from its historical building (inhabited by diplomats, including Nobel Prize Ivo Andric) to design and decor of common areas. (+) Beds are comfortable. Living room is spacious and invites us to sit and enjoy the view of Trieste. (-) Showers could be improved, with more room and support for clothes and toiletteries. (-) Floors squeak loudly.
