Liked: Not much, apart from the fact that we had a place to spend the night.

Disliked: Crammed, hidden prices (bed linen, city tax), a usual occurrence is cars getting broken into at night especially with foreign numbers or larger wagons (during our stay, we noticed 2).

Liked: Supermarkets run by non native italians are near and open for a long time.

Disliked: It is quite far from center. The district is full of non native italians.Hidden charges. Everyone can enter the room. No toilet paper in the toilet in the first day. Toilet cannot be locked, so everyone can enter while you are in the shower or making a poo. The room was supposed to be 14 person large, but there were like 20+ beds inside.


The property's response is

I was to paid 28 euro on arrival, but including taxes it was 38 euro for two nights.

Liked: nothing

Disliked: I paid 35 E/night and I wash in a 14 bed room, with 1 toilet insider. There were available some lockers (not enough for everyone) and I couldn't get any lock from the reception. The room was dirty, the heating wasn't working and even the toilet was dirty with no toilet paper. not advisable.
