Liked: In a great location - close to nice bars, restaurants and the odd cool shop around Santo Spirito, and just over the beautiful bridges to the busier and no doubt less peaceful centre of the city. Staff were helpful and I had everything I needed.

Disliked: My only complaint is that the girls' bathrooms had no ventilation - it was permanently hot, steamy and a bit stinky in there! But they were clean which is the main thing.

Liked: Friendliness of staff. Good location, right off the bridge and within walking distance to all the main tourist sites. Includes a luggage room and guest kitchen.

Disliked: The bathroom was dorm-style and consisted of six showers for the whole hostel. It wasn't too bad waiting for a shower, if you showered at the right time and avoided peak hours. There was only one outlet in a dorm for 22 people, which was inconvenient. Wi-Fi is pretty slow and spotty.

Liked: Very clean, good location.

Disliked: Lockers in our room didn't work although the staff did offer to store valuable for us. The kitchen only has two portable burners and one was not working while we were there so there was often a queue to use them.

Liked: The kitchen was nice and the building itself was interesting because it was a former monastery. Not too far from the major sights, but in a quiet area. The front staff guy at night was very helpful and recommended a good and cheap pizzeria nearby.

Disliked: Not much community life - it was pretty hard meeting people. At 8pm all the lights go out and then come back on at a very low level as "night lights." They were so low that I couldn't read a map in my room unless I was standing directly under the light - and even then it was hard. Found a weird bug crawling around in my sheets when I was checking out. So many stairs! Wasn't really a problem for me, but was for a few other people when the halls were incredibly narrow as well.
