    This was a really nice hostel and was cut into the hill like many of the other buildings in Matera. It was great value for money and the staff were super friendly and helpful. The only slight downside is it is divided across two buildings with only one having a common area and the other just dorms. I ended up in the 'just dorms' building so the atmosphere was a bit less but it was still a great place to stay and will definitely stay here again if I make it back to Matera.

    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.

    Good hostel that strangely closes in the middle of the day for four hours, then at 19:30, just when all the public transport options from Naples arrives. Clean, good nights sleep, not super social, but a good hostel.

    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.

    Thought this hostel was really cool in its design and layout, in that it’s a cave built into the Sassi (old part), making it ideal to explore the main parts of the city! The bed was comfortable and the facilities were clean and modern, allowing for a good stay. I would say that the atmosphere is lacking somewhat... maybe they could put more seating to encourage people to chat? I also thought that the check-in closing at 19:30 was a little unreasonable, especially for travellers, but a good stay!

    The hostel is quite nice, located in a lovely area. Reception times are a bit ridiculous, they close at 7.30pm and then there's noone to ask anything to, which was quite bad for me as I got ALL BITTEN BY BEDBUGS. Instead of fumigating, they said they put a product on the bed. I have tons of bites, which is very disappointing as the staff were friendly. The plugs on my bunk bed did not work and were taped, which did not look safe. Kitchen and bathroom were ok.

    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.
