    I and a really good couple of nights here. The guy on the reception/bar was very accommodating - not least the generous Aperol Spritz for €2.50. The room I stayed in was in the new part of the hostel. The room had 10 bunks but was huge so didn’t feel cramped. Each bed has a built in locker at the end. The view from the room was simply stunning at sunset. In terms of location, it’s walking distance to the train station and right by the main eating/drinking/shopping district. Would stay again!

    Overall, probably the best hostel I've ever been - and I've been to countless in many countries. A pearl!

    Very spacious dorms. Right next to the ocean. They have lockers, but you have to bring your own locks and larger locks don’t fit through the holes. The hostel had a cool vibe and was decorated very nicely. Reception recommended some really good places to eat and were super cool and helpful. Up 4 flights of stairs so be mindful of that but overall a great place to stay.

    Very cool place to hang out for a few days in Trieste. Nice laidback vibe, good mix of people. Bathroom was good. My only drawback was that there is no air con and only 1 fan in the dorm. Great to have breakfast included, but if wholegrain bread could be provided this would be a massive improvement! Staff were helpful.

    Very clean and pleasant hostel. Huge lockers for your things. Showers are a little cramped and it can be loud at night with the windows open. Staff was lovely, and there’s a super nice communal area and kitchen. If there are people around, there are a lot of chances to meet them. Location was perfect!

    Staff were really friendly. None of the guests wanted to talk and the place seemed kind of dead even though it was fully booked. Rooms were very clean and so were the toilets. Location is fantastic. Would come back here again.
