We stayed at Antico Capon for two nights in Sept 2009. The place was centrally located hence it wasn't too hard to find it. Upon arrival we were met by a man who seemed to exude an aura of creepiness, but friendly enough nonetheless. We were surprised to find that our room was actually in a separate ancient and crumbling building away from the actual hostel building tucked inside a dark alleyway. The room was a reasonable size and I was actually quite pleased with it until we were unceremoniously attacked by a huge colony of mosquitoes. Upon closer inspection, there was a thick layer of dust and grit on chairs and tables, and ceiling of the room was almost completely smeared in mosquito blood. On our first night we spent about 2 hours trying to kill the little buggers but I guess they must have been breeding overnight as the next day they seemed to have tripled in numbers. The shower wasn't too great either - the showerhead was broken and the shower door wouldn't close.
All in all, I wouldn't really recommend this place to anyone - go somewhere else if you don't want to wake up itching all over.
