Liked: I found this hostel fun-- not particularly high standard, but clean with a basic appearance, but still witha a lot of character. I loved the guy on reception- he was very personable and he really added to my experience at the hostel- chat to them if you go. Godo location- about 15 mins walk from the station- and it's a very pretty walk. The beds were bunk beds, with no railings- but I didn't fall out and they were fun to jump up to. Computers for your use. Large bathrooms with good facilities. Great kitchen. Computers for use. Wifi in rooms. RECOMMEND

Disliked: There are a lot of stairs, which were KINDA dangerous, but fun all the same. Just one plug in the 12-bed room, but plenty downstairs in the communal dining area. Additional city tax.

Liked: The lockers in the bedrooms were really handy - as was the lovely sun terrace located next to my 22 bed dorm. The location is fantastic - it's next to a square, Spirito, which is great to go for a drink in and has a really lively atmosphere at night. I met some great people there and though a 22 bed dorm sounds a lot, there is lots of space in the corridors to root through your backpack! The building itself is fantastic, lots of steps though so if you aren't too mobile do be careful. The kitchen facilities were superb - pots pans and crockery all provided. You can make a risotto in there quite comfortably!

Disliked: The 2am curfew was a bit annoying, as we wanted to stay out - plus they close the social spaces at night.

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.
