    Beds were nice, kitchen only in the main building which made preparing food difficult. The place looked clean from bed bugs, but just as I was leaving, I saw a bed bug on the luggage locker. Walking on it. Hopefully just a one time thing, the bed didn't look like there was bugs living in it.

    Not the most comfortable beds so didn't sleep super well but the price is of the lowest that I found so can't complain. Staff were helpful and friendly. Not too inviting too stay in and meet people, but as a cheap place to sleep it's very good. Thanks to the staff for keeping the place clean!

    Disappointed regard safety. The day I arrived in Matera there was snow. Ice formed over the external stone stairs, linking two different buildings of the hostel, making their passage very dangerous and difficult. During the two night I stayed, nobody worried to clean the stairs, at least to open a narrow safe corridor. I complained this to the hostel, and after more than one week I haven't received reply. It's duty of the municipality to clean? Anyway safety comes first...

    Honestly, it wasn't the best. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either: the staff is not very friendly; the kitchen is in a cave, so it smells a bit weird and it's very dark; my dorm room didn't have a door; the cleanliness of the bathrooms wasn't perfect.
