Liked: It's close to the tower and quite small, so easy to meet people. There is a fridge and stuff to eat with, even though you can't cook. Laundry is essentially free if you bring your own detergent. Got a free upgrade too.

Disliked: You can store your luggage, but can't retrieve it between 11 am and 2 pm because the guy leaves (even though theoretically there is cleaning staff there). Also no one had changed the beds from the previous guests when my friend got there in the evening the next day.

Liked: Very friendly staff, one night the guy from the reception even took us out to show us the best places to go to. Thank you very much for everything, you were very helpful. I liked the property, beautiful terrace, clean rooms and clean and well equipped bathrooms. Great location, the leaning tower is about a 5-minute walk away. Big supermarket about a 10-minute walk away and many small shops that still have opened after midnight, are located near the tower.

Disliked: Only two bathrooms, a bit crowded and annoying in the morning, but it was okay ;) The only thing I was a bit disappointed about, was the fact, that the hostel isn't offering small events like pub crawls. It's not a Party Hostel, so I wouldn't recommend it to travellers who are looking for partys. Still great to meet people.

Liked: The location is great right next to the main attractions of Pisa and in a quiet area. It is also easy to get to by bus from the airport or train station.

Disliked: The small "kitchen area"offered did not have a sink. The room I slept in on the first night only had one fan and so it was a hot night. As the building is so old there was only 1 small bathroom for all 4 dorm rooms!

Liked: Hostel was clean, and the wifi worked. Was very close to the Leaning Tower of Pisa, so was able to check in, drop my bags off and go straight to the Leaning Tower.

Disliked: Apart from the Leaning Tower of Pisa, there is not much close by. Only 2 bathrooms for the whole hostel, so have to try and pick when to have a shower etc.

Liked: The staff was very friendly and it was right down the road from the tower. The rooms were spacious and there were full length mirrors!

Disliked: There was only one bathroom/shower combo for an entire floor of people. That is entirely too small.

Liked: Everything! I just adore this hostel! It´s a family-run, small and well organized hostel with cute interior decorations, very comfortable beds and a super friendly dog called Biro (she´s just adorable). I almost felt like in a friendly family house thanks to great staff (thanks, Valerio!), all the extra equipment (PS3, DVDs, board games, garden and summer terrace...) and helpful notes everywhere. I´ve stayed in quite a few hostel but this one is definitely the best. If I come back to Pisa I´ll definitely stay here.

Disliked: If I had to pick something it would be the lack of a stove. But they have a microwave owen, a kettle, toaster, fridge and even a vending machine. Plus you don´t have to wash the dishes, they do it for you. :-)

Liked: Great location, super friendly staff, very clean place! It's a wonderful hostel and for it's location and value, next time I come to Pisa I would skip the B&B's and fancy hotels and stay here!

Disliked: Only thing I didn't like was that my roommate was allowed to enter the building super late and always made lots of noise when she did even though the others and I in the room were already asleep.

Liked: Our stay here was fantastic. Great location, close to the leaning tower, to pisa's shops and attractions. Many restaurants and cafes near by. The hostel was run by a lovely family who made you feel very welcome in their home. Everything was clean, tidy and well equipped. Wifi was very good. Balcony with beautiful views of pisa and the tower. Would highly recommend!

Disliked: nothing
