Liked: As a photographer, the room I stayed in had a roof that was slanted which provided beautiful sun light that entered through the rooftop window. It was also mosquito free which was nice, compared to Florence.

Disliked: The bathroom in our room had no soap, there was no toilet paper provided nor towels. Also, the mat for when one leaves the bathtub (not a standing shower) was soaking wet so I did not use it.

Liked: Absolutely nothing. Save yourself the headache. The extra money you spend will save your from dirty showers and a overcrowded room. the staff was friendly at check-in, at least until you pay then you will never be accomadated throughout you stay.

Disliked: The sheets were like paper, the atmosphere is so unfriendly no one wants to converse. Most are too worn out by conditions and bad location to enjoy the city. I wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Rude staff. Bad bad location. The room you sleep in is so hot 40 degrees- you will not be sleeping. Additional charges when you arrive for linen and some tax. Rudest staff I've ever come across. I have been staying in cheap hostels around Europe for 9 months and this is by far the worst. People smoking in kitchen where you eat.
