Property Description

ControVento is a brand new hostel located in the historical centre of the Trieste, just in front of the sea. 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.

    A really cool hostel, super friendly staff who gave me a good run down of essentials - where to eat, where to get good wine and things to see. I’m just sorry I missed the party that was happening the day I left!

    Super great hostel with the sweetest staff ever! They really take good care of you and wants you to have the best time in trieste. Gave us good tips on bars, restaurants and places to visit, to bad we only had 2 days there.. The only downside was that there only were 2 toilets and 2 baths, but other than that, perfect. I highly recommend this place.

    This is the most beautiful hostel we have ever stayed in! The common area was a wonderful little retreat where we could read and plan our next steps. The staff had a lot of fantastic recommendations, and the restaurants we went to based on that were lovely and great lovely. We really enjoyed our time in Trieste and would love to come back, and of course we'd stay here again :) we couldn't figure out how to lock our door, but there are lockers so everything was safe anyway :) we loved it here! :)

    It is calm and cool place located in a beautiful palazzo, close to the city center of Trieste only 10 minutes on foot and close to night bars and other recreational facilities. It has only few rooms which makes the place safe, clean and calm. I strongly recommend it for a try since it's a big value for money. The view on the sea is differently an asset.

    Met four memebers of staff and each of them was super nice and helpful. Lovely chilled hostel. Massive rooms that lesser hostels would cram more beds into.

    Super friendly and helpful staff. Right in the city. Everything was good. Except wifi. Kept having to turn it off and then on again. Almost like the hostel is filtering how much you use. Super inconvenient.

    Nice little hostel but not the most functional facilities. Super high top bunks and not curtains in the rooms. Nice atmosphere but no security on who can enter your room but lockers provided. Old building, about 15-20 min walk from train station and close to lots of bars, food and shops. Up 3 flights of stairs and seemed to be no light at night. Decent breakfast included and nice kitchen but not the best bathrooms. Showers were tiny with no where to put clothes. Nice staff and common room.

    Nice, chilled hostel in a great location but should not be charging €3 for a towel (should be free) and the common room was closed at 10pm, which is too early.
