“You get what you pay for but lock your door.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

This hotel is basic so don't expect too much. It's is in a good location and the room was clean. The bathroom was fine and didn't have to wait for others. HOWEVER, on the first night we stayed here, like someone else has mentioned in their review, someone tried to open the door to our room around 5.30am. We thought this might be another guest who got the wrong room but definitely lock the door while you sleep to be safe!

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

I never felt compelled to write a review before but this bed and breakfast must be avoided. My girlfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights and have never been more frightened in our lives. On the second to last night at 5:30 am i went to the public bathroom and came back in time to lock our door. As im falling back asleep, I hear someone slowly try to open our door (that has no peephole). My heart races but was only more disenchanted that the front desk staff didn't believe my story and has taken no steps to improve security. There is no surveillance, no night staff after 8pm, locks that require furniture drawer keys, and a sketchy location. I am up all night the next night out of fear and am unsuprised to (even after switching rooms) hear someone at 5:15 this morning slowly try to open my door. Stay here only if you are a body builder or sharpshooter who gets adrenaline playing the most dangerous game. Remember the # for police in Italy is 113 if you do decide to stay here. We have been shaking we were so afraid of getting robbed or worse. I am afraid to leave my room until late daylight because I don't know if anyone is waiting to jump me outside my door. Pay a little more elsewhere and admonish the fear of heart retching anxiety, robbery, rape, and potentially being sold into sexual slavery. SINGLE WOMEN STAY AWAY!! The front desk staff could not be ruder. I have no other recourse other than to warn fellow travelers of this criminal trap.

Stayed here and really enjoyed the staff and rooms! Had a private with shared bathroom but believe I was the only one using the bathroom. The staff is great and very nice. The rooms were clean and comfortable! Only downside, there is no elevator and it was very difficult to get my big bag up the stairs. Great place to stay for young adults.

All in all good place, even if there is not so much space in the room and also the toilet is very small. No problems for a couple of nights, specially if you need it just to sleep and visit the city. Calm, clean, efficient!

The hostel is placed inside zone of limited traffic really close to the center.Everything is 5 minute walk away (piazza republica, santa maria, san marco ). If you are with car u can leave it for 21 eur/day in garage on san zanobi (50 metres away).

The room is simple, not what you expect for 55 eur/day , thhe price is high due to great location which saves a lot of traveling. Most of the stuff is in 1 km radius.

PLUS FOR HOTEL: great location
MINUS: no breakfast, simple room , cold floor (take slippers with you), some problems with toilet (but managable), no service (have to call owner everytime to arrive to hostel)
On the scale 1-10 i would give it 7

If you are looking for a good location this place is the best, but the room was so old and strange and the bathroom was not the most clean. I mean, it is a good place to stay for a day or two days I think.

We booked a double room with shared bath for 2 nights.
The room was sparely furnished (unfortunately no mirror and no coat rack) but ok. The shared bathroom was a bit dirty...
The hall is beuatifully furnished! The man who did the check-in was very polite and offered us a map for the city.
All in all: ok hostel for the price!
