    Nice place, perfect for exploring the Sassi due to its location, many facilities around. The bad thing is that check-in needs to be done till 19h30, so it's not an option if you have to arrive later.

    It very, very well located, something you look for in Matera. The room was super comfortabale and the bathrooms clean. The kitchen could be better, and it's closed in the afternoon, be careful with that.

    Stated at the hostel two nights. The best thing is that is at the heart of sassi di Materaat the old city.the staff was very friendly and wanted to help (when they were there because the reception is open only for a few hours)..the hostel is not very clean especially the walls close to the beds and the floor, as well the bathrooms weren't very clean all the time..also there are no keys or card to open the rooms, in the rooms can come anybody. Hot water all the time and good temperature.

    The staff was helpful to the best of their abilities and were all friendly. The walk from the central station is about 15 minutes and takes you through the city centre, which is quite a warm welcome to the beautiful city. The one-room interior of the building meant that you could hear everyone late at night and early in the morning. Quite loudly. The kitchen smelt damp and didn’t make me want to eat there but the common room was okay. On my last night I spotted bedbugs, so be mindful of that!

    Location was very good. Walls are too thin or have gaps, so you can hear too much of everything in the other rooms or outside the rooms. Luckily everyone was respecting that and was quite but thus there's NO hostel-life where you could really meet people. The kitchen is there but veeeery dark and in part not so clean..

    Not a great stay overall. Pros: great location, strong wifi, low cost, friendly staff. Cons: Most dorms in separate back building. The dorm was just 4 bunks and a bench. Lockers were in the hallway with no bench, chair, or area to get organized. Slow drains led to shower overflows. Dorm doors don't lock. Unbearably hot the first night (no windows) but cooler the second. Outer door did not close firmly by itself, so often left open by accident! No atmosphere, tiny kitchen.

    **BLACK MOULD** — the downstairs social area (kitchen, games, etc) was incredibly damp and the entire ceiling was covered in dangerous black Mould. The hostel was nowhere near as nice as the photos we saw online — it was dirty, very smelly, damp, and incredibly hot (no ventilation, AC, fans - inside a cave!). The staff were grumpy and they had double-booked one of our beds. They were only available for a few hours a day on the reception desk, and left door open to public when not there!
