Property Description

The Rock Hostel is an hostel with a friendly and cozy atmosphere, located in the old town of Matera in a 'lamione', a typical restored old farmer house, built with the local limestone rock in the 19th century. For many centuries, travellers who were getting to the Sassi (Matera's old town), after their long trip, they used to ask for accomodation to the farmers on the way, on the current road of our hostel, and their requests were always willingly accepted. There is a common area with tv, kitchen with kitchenware and stovetop, tea/coffee maker, microwave, fridge, books, sofas, luggage storage, tours desk, coin-laundry and much more.

The Rock Hostel is only 2 minutes walking-distance from Sassi, 4 minutes walking distance from the main square with active nightlife, and only 7 minutes walking distance from Matera central train and bus station, where you can get the shuttles to Bari airport as well. Around the hostel there are shops, bars, bakeries, ATM, fruit stand, farmacy, supermarkets, pizzerias and restaurants.

We have a total of 20 beds: two dorm-rooms with 4 bunk-beds and one dorm-room with 2 bunk-beds, and free WiFi everywhere in the hostel. Every room is soundproof and is equipped with private bathrooms, big lockers, new and comfortable mattresses, linen, individual reading lamp and electric kettle, desk, hair dryer on request, and much more.

    We stayed at this hostel for three nights and loved it! Great location, the staff were super helpful and nice! They gave us a map when we arrived and gave us advice on where to go. The whole place was clean and the common area is great!

    This hostel is great. It's fairly new, comfy beds and has great bathroom and kitchen facilities. So close to the Sassi area and to a supermarket. Francesca is an amazing host, so helpful and knowledgeable about the area, things to do and the best way to see them. She spent time telling me about Materas history which she is obviously passionate about. Would stay here again!

    Francesca is the best. This is a gem of a hostel among the best I’ve stayed in in Europe. Historic building but fully renovated a few years ago. Amazing

    Francesca was a lovely and knowledgeable host! Super clean rooms and bathrooms, really great kitchen if you want to eat in, right next to a supermarket, only thing is that it’s around a 15 minute walk from the main square of Sassi Barisano but overall a really nice base to see Matera. There’s not really much of a vibe but you can’t really fault the hostel, Matera’s still a little off the beaten track in Italy!
