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.

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. San Giusto castle and its cathedral are 10 min walk uphill.

    Perfect location at a walking distance from the main sites, spacious rooms with lovely views of the city, bathrooms always clean & the common area has beautiful decor, good music, & drinks if you feel like it. The staff is superb, Marco gave me a crash course on Trieste which was all I needed to see everything there is to see during my stay, and Marta was always available to help/answer questions & has kindly prepared a lovely breakfast for us every morning, they made us feel home. Recommended!

    Really great hostel! Cool atmosphere and really nicely designed. Staff were super helpful and the free breakfast was an added bonus. Slightly pricey..but still good value for the area. Lockers don’t have bringing a padlock to this one might be an idea! Thank you for all your help 😊

    The rooms are great, but the floorboards crack a little. Which can be found a bit disturbing with the shared rooms. Furthermore it was the off season. So even though the atmosphere was great, it felt a little empty. The staff is extremely friendly, the hostel is a great place for any kind of travel activities.

    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!

    The location is not great, and the breakfast was not good. The staff were generally helpful except one evening I rang the bell outside for 10 minutes with no answer. Then someone else was leaving. When I got to the entrance, I was ringing the bell for another 10 minutes or so before another guest was kind enough to open the door for me. The desk attendant said she was upstairs doing the washing. If the desk is suppose to be staffed 7-10, then there shouldn’t be such a long time unattended.
