Liked: Very nicely located, next to the pisa tower. It is far from train station, but so it the power. The staff was very nice and helpful. Reading lights are useful. Big screen tv with PS3, nice outdoor lounge.

Disliked: no real luggage store, you just leave it on the terrace. Only two bathrooms for the whole hostel and the showers are in the bathroom, so you can't use them if someone's in the shower. No kitchen and only a small fridge. Overall a great stay though.

Liked: Honest, friendly

Disliked: Possibly having an option to have a key would be better than relying on the doorbell, especially when their brand of door bell is confusing – it wasn't clear what was the button and what wasn't. But not a big problem really.

Liked: It was quiet and clean. There was a nice lounge area and the staff was helpful. The hostel is a good value for money.

Disliked: There are too few bathrooms (only 2). In the evening it was not a problem, but in the morning be ready for a 10 minutes wait. Self-catering facilities don`t include the kitchen - it`s only for the staff.

Liked: Imperative you get the bus from the airport. When i arrived i was greeted by the very friendly owners Fabio & Valerio. Two guys and staff who make you feel very welcome. I stayed for 1 night but would like to return for a longer stay. Cool beer and other drinks in the fridge. A large tv with Sky Italia Subscription. Comfortable and clean rooms. Nice terrace area outside. Overall a very friendly and homely hostel with great advice and nice personal touches. Philip. Newcastle,UK.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Good location. Literally 2 minutes away from the tower. Clean. Beautiful garden with free use of the barbecue grill, but you have to supply your own tools and coal to use it. Valerio and Fabio, the 2 brothers who run the hostel, are so friendly and helpful.

Disliked: I am a traveller who likes to cook my own meals, as there is no use of a kitchen, that was not possible during my stay here. So that's the only thing I disliked - no use of kitchen.

Liked: the closeness to the duomo and tower and it's laidback atmosphere. And the price.

Disliked: the bathroom situation; although the bathrooms were lovely and perfectly clean they could not cope with the number of guests; it was uncomfortable having to wait for people to shower when in desperate need to use the toilet; the hostel would benefit from having seperate shower and toilet.

Liked: Such friendly people at reception. Couple of minutes walk to the famous Piazza dei Miracoli. No locks on the dorms' doors, but that didn't matter 'cause this is the kind of friendly place where everybody greets each other. Free use of the internet computer in the living room. Great showers: big showerheads and adjustable in height. They come to your room in the evening to turn on the aircon if needed. Bus to the station nearby. Nice, coloured bed lamps with each bed + somewhere to put your book and alarm clock, sweet smelling sheets.

Disliked: There weren't enough bathrooms; bathroom and toilet together in a room and only 1 on each floor. Breakfast (2,90) prepared with love but it's a sweet breakfast: lots of cakes, and I think no cheese.
