Ostello San Marco
Reviewed 18 February 2009

I stayed here for a week in July and adored it. Sergio was so helpful and friendly. If you are nice and chatty with them, they will be eager to please. They listened to our individual requests and bought specific things that they knew we liked. I would also recommend the dinners they have- delicious.
Close to the town center and very comfortable. Fantastic views.
Highly recommend.

Reviewed 12 August 2006

After confirming our reservations twice (via email), my husband and I were surprised to find that our room was "not available" when we arrived. Sergio, the guy who runs the hostel, was very helpful, though, and found us a room at a nearby monastery. The following day we returned to Ostello San Marco, and were able to check into our room.
We reserved the "family room", which consisted of 2 bunk beds (4 beds), a small table and chairs, a dresser, and a VERY small window to the outside. We visited in July and were extremely hot because of the lack of A/C and ventilation. Our private bathroom was clean (but a flight of stairs down from our room). For 16.50 euro/person, it was a great deal!
Overall, our stay was OK...but we felt that the hostel was not run as well as it should have been. There were only two staff members and neither of them spoke English very well. Not that I would expect them to speak English well...I just feel that they could have done a better job of managing reservations, posting check-out times, etc.
