The hostel was extremely basic.
The room was very hot as the fan was so high on te ceiling it did not affect the temperature of the room.
The bathrooms were decent with a relatively powerful shower. The only problem was the large number of school groups who took over the bathrooms for up to an hour. So it was key to miss that rush.
The lack of breakfast proved an annoyance as the fridges were packed with other people's food with no room for ours.
The payment is made on arrival with a €8 city tax added to the expense.
However the hostel is in a good location on regards to vaperetto stations and a high street with many shops and restaurants.
The staff also were friendly and helpful.
