So to sum up this place quickly it is an absolute hell hole that should be avoided at all costs! Obviously if you're reading this, you speak English, and if u can't speak fluent Italian then you have no hope here.
Now the long version: the man checking us in spoke no English, was not friendly at all and was absolutely no help to us. The Internet is terrible, you have to sit in reception (which would be better desribed as the nonna's louge room) and it kept cutting out all the time. One time it wasn't working for over 5 hrs and when I asked the old fart about it he just said "I dunno, it's broke" and that was all. You'll hear loud street noises all day n night. Shared bathroom toilet doesn't even flush, and they ask u to put all paper in the bin instead of the toilet so the whole bathroom stinks of poo!! The lady in the reception is not much better than the old man. When we came down the first morning I asked about the breakfast that was included in the room rate, she informed me that it was finished already! I told we that we didn't even get told about any breakfast and that the man checking us in should've explained it to us, all she said was "I'm sorry this is not my problem". The whole staff are seriously more interested in sitting watching their tv than giving you any kind of service. Now I'm not the kind of stuck up sort of person that I think usually leaves such bad reviews about places, but I just felt that I have to let everyone out there know how bad it REALLY is. We wanted to leave after the first night (first hr really) but I was worried about what we would be charged for cancellation so we didn't bother. So do yourselves a favour and don't even think about staying here, it's not worth saving 10,20 or even 30 euro a night over, just keep looking and book a better place, PLEASE!! We only paid 30euro a night and it was definitely not even worth that!
