"Pros": The stuff is brilliant, really helpful and speak good english, the atmosphere is amazing, you feel like you are in italian family. There is always someone in the reception so you can get help during all day. Near the reception is a small refrigerator where you can buy water, juice, light alcohol, if you forgot to do it in town. Big beach towels are avaliable for rent for 5 euro. The location is a strong plus: you walk to recanati (busstop, huge supermarket, many cafes and restaurants, main discos of Giardini) in 5min, to recanati beach - in 7-10. The bus stop is just by the hostel, there is also a nice bakery where you can try cannoli, ice cream and lots of other sweets.
"Cons": As the temperature was around 35 degrees in the night, it was really hard to sleep due to the absence of air condition. We left the room about 1-2 pm every day and no one cleaned it or changed towels during 5 days of our stay. Also, they claim to have check-in at 4 pm, but my room was ready only at 8 pm.
