    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!

    The location is perfect. Consider that you probably need a taxi to get there. There isbalmost no buses in the city. Staff super nice. Not very crowded dorms. Bathroom not included in the room.

    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 hostel is in a really great location in the Sassi area perfect for exploring the area! The hostel is made of two separate buildings. I was in a 4 bed female dorm which was spacious and handily had a clothes rack and table. The lockers outside the rooms were also handy. Please be warned that the doors separating the dorms and corridor are very thin and the corridor light is left on all night making the dorms quite noisy! Duvets are also very thin.

    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.
