"Best quality/price value that we ever found in Italy. The breakfast was included, and we even had a free cocktail. The vibe of the hostel was fun for young travellers, they had a bar, a pool table, very nice and helpful…"

Liked: I liked just about everything. Breakfast, wi-fi, bar, pool table, large lockers etc. Near the beach and not far from the train.

Disliked: The noise should be kept down at night. The music stay up until about midnight. People were banging doors at night and early in the morning. That's my only negative.

Liked: The staff was very friendly, helpful, English-speaking. The property has a great location - it's located in the extremely nice borough of Rimini, just 5 minutes to the beach and only 3 minutes to the market and about 10 to the railway station. The very good thing in the Sunflower was possibility of using 2 computers with connection to the internet (you could also use printer so we were able to print our boarding cards there). The hotel was also clean. We especially like breakfasts and good coffee. It is the best hostel I have ever stayed in and I recommend it!!!

Disliked: nothing!

Liked: A hostel with a good atmosphere, with a nice and kind staff, and close to the beach. Ecofriendly advices. Continental breakfast. Great place for travelling students.

Disliked: The rooms are a bit crowded with furnitures because of the best usage of spaces. For this reason I don't advise this hostel for elder people.

Liked: Vibe

Disliked: Alot of people staying here were in groups and not keen to socialise with other travelers. Also i stayed in a room with 8 beds, but i think they pushed it a little too far and 6 would be more suitable.

Liked: Apart from the general atmosphere and facillities that were excellent, it was Kike and the other staff that made this hostel one of the best I've stayed at. They were very welcoming, multi-lingual, friendly and helpful, making me feel at home as soon as I stepped in. It is close to the free beach and heaps of bars and clubs. People there seemed to find the balance between being there to both relax and party, and the pub crawl with the sister hostel is good value, great fun, and opportunity to make friends.

Disliked: I honestly can't think of anything I didn't enjoy about this hostel.
