    Good hostel, in excellent position and with nice staff. However, the cleaning in the rooms could be improved (bit of dust under the beds) and the personal badges don't work very well (I had to change mine three times and the same happened to other guests). In general, good feedback but for 9.4 I was expecting something more.

    The staff wasn’t that friendly and professional. Food at the bar is pretty nice and cheap. The rooms are nice but the lockers dont have locks.

    L’ostello é in una ottima posizione, tuttavia nel bagno del mio piano mancava pressoché il riscaldamento. La stanza da 4 era spaziosa tuttavia non c’era ricircolo d’aria. L’atteggiamento del personale mi è risultato molto spesso piuttosto spocchioso, arrogante e per niente amichevole. Escludo da questa descrizione una ragazza del personale italiana, un paio di ragazzi di lingua spagnola e uno di lingua inglese. Non vengono dati i lucchetti alla reception ma é necessario averne uno personale.
