    The location is perfect, on a quote road but just a 5 minute walk from the centre. The receptionists are very welcoming and speak english. The hostel is clean and tidy!

    L’Ostello dei Sassi was a wonderful place to stay during our visit to the beautiful city of Matera. The workers were friendly and quick to respond, and there was a nice living room area where we could relax between activities. We loved that there was a kitchen where we could make our own food. The atmosphere was a bit lacking, not as social as we were expecting, but overall we had a lovely stay!

    In many years of travel across the globe I have never encountered something like this. We were ushered out of the hostel by the police because management had not applied to reopen after Covid-19. We were blameless. However management found us a place to spend the night at a former convent? It did however spoil my evening plans.

    Great value for money and amazing location to explore Matera; literally 30 second walk from Sassi Di Matera. Hostel itself was pretty basic and not the most sociable, but clean and comfortable for a couple of nights. No air con but not too hot as underground/cave.

    Very Good

    The hostel was very neat and tidy! I didn’t love that the room didn’t have any windows and was underground, would have been nice for each bed to have a lamp so that in the morning there was an option other than the main light. Also, the door to the the building where the dorms were was often open during the day and there was no lock on the dorm doors which didn’t feel super dooper safe. Otherwise the place was enjoyable and the location was amazing

    This place is infested with bed bugs, I had 2 horrible nights sleeping there specially the second night after I woke up from the first night and found bed bugs crawling all over the walls and bed. But that shouldn’t come as a surprise if I read the previous reviews properly, I have no idea how this place gets +8 rating, horrible experience stay away.

    The hostel is absolutely to flee. The rooms are infested with bed bugs. the staff are fully aware of the problem and do not take any sufficient means to get rid of it. for the rest, the inn is very poorly maintained. results of the stay: time lost to wash all our bags and stings on the body
