Liked: Ĺocation was good, especially after we figured out the buses, which took a good day and a half. Basically buy bus tickets at tabacchi shops for 1.20 euro, good for 90 minutes after 1st use, rather than 2 euro on the bus. Bus right outside hostel goes to a main bus Station, Alamani, from where you can catch several other buses. The receptionist Mohindra is very pleasant, tri-lingual and helpful. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable, with a flat screen TV and very quiet air conditioning, which we hadn't realized before letting several mosquitos in the window. The kitchen on each floor is well equipped, has 2 fridges and a separate dining area. Smokers can go out on balcony. Two bathrooms as well, only 4 rooms per floor. No bunks, reasonably comfortable beds. The two of us stayed in a room for 3, had pleasant roommates each night; the receptionist took it upon himself to rearrange things so we'd have another female with us for the 1st night, unrequested but appreciated.

Disliked: The room faced a busy, noisy street. Wasn't too bad once we discovered the air conditioning and could close the window.

Liked: #1 thing about this place is it's location - right near the train station. It's clean, the beds are relatively comfy. Each floor has their own common room with amazing kitchen facilities. No breakfast includes it who cares - plan ahead and spend $2 for eggs at the market e voila! Also has A/C. Would recommend this place.

Disliked: The bathrooms weren't the cleanest and each floor with about 10-14 people share two bathrooms. Feint desk guy wasn't the most helpful.

Liked: A really nice and quiet hostel, the standard reminds more of a decent budget hotel than a hostel. All main attractions are within a walking distance. There is also a great restaurant nearby, in the san jacopino square.

Liked: Hostel is pretty new and you have your own bed (as opposed to a bunk bed). Also lots of storage (but no locks on them so make sure to bring locks for your luggage).

Disliked: Having to carry keys around since staff is not always there.
