Although the hostel overall is good, the breakfast could be better but I've had far worse and cereal is good and cheap beers in vending machines €1+.
Nice rooms, no bunks, high ceilings, private shared bath, church bells to wake you up.
During check in i hopefully requested for quiet room away from noise and was assured by reception it was. Woke up to construction right outside my window. If not it's the regular church bells nearby or the stomping of feet coming down the stairs directly next to the room, or even the buzzing of the doorbell from people coming in.
Other hostel mate said there were bites on her body, I'm guessing bed bugs. But the location of the hostel is very close to duomo.
