Liked: The two brothers who run the hostel are very welcoming....you do really feel at home and they go the extra mile to help you out...for the price, the facilities were really good...I had taken a shared females only dorm..like they say they are right next to the Leaning Tower of Pisa and I could view it from my bedroom....the beds were really clean and comfortable...the locker which they provided was good for me since I had only one backpack, but it might not fit your luggage if they are too big...they also provide free internet...overall it was really a wonderful experience....there was nothing that I really disliked about the place...

Disliked: More than dislike, I would say these wud be ways to improve the property...the bell outside the door was not marked and there were three buttons...but the one on the right hand bottom corner is the one to be pressed...was a bit confusing for me in the first...there are no keys to the main door, and maybe they cud be made and given to the guests so they are not made to wait outside at any cost...apart from there, there are only two bathrooms (2 rooms, with both bath and toilet in the same place), but that was never an issue for me as I needed the bathroom only very early in the morning...but the problem is that if you want to use the toilet and someone is having a shower you have to wait...but obviously it is unfair to expect more than that considering you are not paying a heavy price for the stay itself...

Liked: Warm and homely environment. Facilities were great, and the members of the staff were extremely helpful.

Disliked: Nothing at all. There is a problem with the hostel's location on Google Maps, so I'd suggest for other travellers looking for the hostel to search for the Pisa Tower instead. The hostel is just three minutes away from the tower. I understand that the hostel owners have written to Google about this.

Liked: There really wasn't much to dislike, the staff were helpful and friendly, the hostel was quirky and clean, I felt safe at all times, the rooms were very clean.

Disliked: Perhaps the ability to use some kitchen facilities, they are staff only, so not somewhere to stay if you want to cook for yourself. If you are happy eating out then this place has nothing to dislike.

Liked: We stayed in the small "Colombo Apartment" which is located at the rear of the hostel. It is a self contained flat which will cater for 4 adults easily for a night or 2 and is perfect for families with 2 adults and 2 children. The location of the hostel is excellent for visiting the Leaning Tower and other monuments in Pisa. It is within easy walking distance of the railway station (which is at the other end of Pisa). Given the relatively small size of Pisa it is good for visiting the entire town. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the hostel has a very cosy warm homely feel. It was very clean and comfortable. We would highly recommend this hostel.

Disliked: Nothing.

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.

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.
