    A very nice hostel overall! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location by the sea is very nice and the atmosphere with the other travellers is also great.

    AMAZING BREAKFAST!! This is the perfect relaxed hostel for interrailers like us to stop over 2 nights in Trieste. It is a bit outside of the town which means you can literally walk 100m away and swim! There is even cheap pizza close by which we brought up to the hostel roof terrace in the evening Breakfast was a highlight bc of the coffee, blood orange juice, infinite bread + view of the sea! Would recommend taking bus to coop in Trieste for lunch supplies-Only problem with hostel was no kitchen

    This is a beautiful location...right on the water! The staff are wonderful! They went out of the way to help me get settled and even gave me a care package for the road when I left. It was off season, so not a lot of people here... I felt like I had the place to myself. But think I would come back even when it's was a great spot!

    It's located right next to castle Miramare - go there right in the morning before 9:30, you will be there before all the tourists come, which provides a great atmosphere! Otherwise the bed are quite close to each other, not so much space to walk in the room. Free breakfast is a plus (if you like sweet).

    The location of the hostel is beautiful and it is quite far from the centre although there is a bus stop right next to it which drives fast to the city center. However, there is no wifi connection in the rooms and several school students groups are going so in the evening it was quite loud. Overall, I enjoyed the stay and the hostel is fine for a short stay, at least in this time of the year.

    Good: right beside the ocean. Staff were friendly enough but didn't go above and beyond. Clean. Bad: the hostel is quite far out of town, if your bus doesn't show up, it's a very long walk. Our room had fewer lockers than beds. The bathroom did not provide hand soap or any way to dry your hands, and only one toilet had a toilet seat. The dorm rooms do not automatically lock so our roommates just always left the door open and complained when we locked it. Very small indoor common room.

    One of the main receptionists was this grumpy old man that didn't make me feel welcomed as a guest. It really gave me a bad first impression as well as how dirty the restrooms and hallways were.

    1. About staff: Absolutely rude and pathetic night staff. There's one old weirdo who comes at the reception in night hours, try to avoid interacting with him. He was absolutely rude, doesn't know any language, but Italian, and at times actually cursed and shouted at us when asked about using kitchen. 2. Atmosphere: Everywhere I saw, I could only see old Italian people in their 60s probly. Absolutely none to interact with. 3. Free breakfast: Rubbish. Only milk and break jam.

    It's the only hostel in Trieste as far as I know, so my review will only upset people having no choice, sorry for that. The old guy of the staff is super rude and doesn't speak English. There are two outlets in a room for 6, rooms for 20e are in a basement, so very hot and humid. There are no facilities for cooking/making tea (i was offered to buy a plastic cup and fill it with hot tap water). Located very far from anything but sea. The upside is that it's easy to meet other travelers.
