I was there with my family during our bicycle tour. Hostel is not far from the center; location is beautiful. Staff is very welcoming, nice and helpful. Our room was little with outside private very basic bathroom. Dinner (extra: 8 euros) and breakfast (included) are very poor quality: we suggest to have them outside or to ask to bring some... More

Huge building. Stayed 2 nights in 8 beds girls dorm. Room are spacious and clean. Showers and toilets cleanliness average, need more lightings. Simple breakfast with not much choice. Wifi only available in common area. Location 30 minutes walk to center (Arena). Only 1 or 2 restaurants nearby.

Went there for my 2 nights in Verona. The reception was quite good and the lady was very helpful. The rooms are good and the prices are probably the cheapest in town. Be aware tough the man dorm is a 40 beds dorm. The pillow I had was in a weird materiel, not very comfortable. The rest is pretty clean.... More

They have a weird rule, they keep your document (even the passport if you dont have other!) until the checkout, they don't let you pay in the checkin... They don't accept credit/debit cards. The building is very beautiful. It is close to some attractions, but far to go walking to arena at night alone.. Big rooms.

For us this wasn't worth the small saving we thought that we had made. The only redeeming feature was a traditional supper for 8 euros. My boyfriend and I didn't have a problem with staying in separate single-sex rooms however we didn't expect this to mean he would be in a room of 32 naked men. Additionally I didn't particularly...

Great location with plenty of parking in the north end of town, across the river from the town center. The parking lot is behind a locked gate and high walls. The hostel is a beautiful 15 minutes walk to the faux-Juliet balcony. My wife and I had a separate room, away from the normal hostel dorms. The room was clean... More

My friends and I booked this hostel because of the exterior ascetic; a beautiful exterior disguises the true quality of this hostel. We were greeted by the hostel owner who was immediately rude to us telling us off for arriving a few minutes late. The customer service would go downhill from there. We were instructed that we would not be... More

It's a very nice hostel. Clean bathrooms, nice attendants and very well located. The shared room is good. The breakfast is very simples, but honest taking into account the daily price. But the best of all: the most amazing view! Just one thing: it has a lot of stairs! They offer dinner (it cost 8€) and it is whort it.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and for 18 Euros a night with breakfast, it was a great deal. It was a little away from the main tourist areas but definitely walkable. It is a hostel so there was a large group of preteen to teen students when we went. Unfortunately for my friend and I, there was a lady... More

The hostel is on the most amazing building, and is in a convenient walking distance to the tourist attractions. The rooms are spacious (at least the type we had) and clean, the staff helpful. Breakfast was weak, but we had our own food anyway.

“Sorry nil pool that was a typo. For the benefit of having access to your room throughout the day choose a family room as situated at rear of gardens and have table and chairs outside for your use as well as some sensible person has tired a line from the trees to hang your washing in the fresh air to dry. Although if downstairs you will have upstairs thumping away on the metal treads to their accommodation.”
