Property Description

The Rock Hostel is a 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.

I had a great time here! The hostel doesn’t have 24 hour reception which is a bummer so you need to plan your arrival accordingly.

I will recommend the Rock Hostel to anyone travelling to Matera. The dorms and the bathrooms are incredibly tidy, same as the kitchen/dining area. The location is great as well - only a 5-10 minute walk to the Sassi and to the town. One thing to be mindful of though is if you have a big back, as the lockers are quite small it is a challenge to fit them in. Other than that 10/10
