For us this wasn't worth the small saving we thought that we had made. The only redeeming feature was a traditional supper for 8 euros. My boyfriend and I didn't have a problem with staying in separate single-sex rooms however we didn't expect this to mean he would be in a room of 32 naked men. Additionally I didn't particularly...

Great location with plenty of parking in the north end of town, across the river from the town center. The parking lot is behind a locked gate and high walls. The hostel is a beautiful 15 minutes walk to the faux-Juliet balcony. My wife and I had a separate room, away from the normal hostel dorms. The room was clean... More

My friends and I booked this hostel because of the exterior ascetic; a beautiful exterior disguises the true quality of this hostel. We were greeted by the hostel owner who was immediately rude to us telling us off for arriving a few minutes late. The customer service would go downhill from there. We were instructed that we would not be... More

It's a very nice hostel. Clean bathrooms, nice attendants and very well located. The shared room is good. The breakfast is very simples, but honest taking into account the daily price. But the best of all: the most amazing view! Just one thing: it has a lot of stairs! They offer dinner (it cost 8€) and it is whort it.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and for 18 Euros a night with breakfast, it was a great deal. It was a little away from the main tourist areas but definitely walkable. It is a hostel so there was a large group of preteen to teen students when we went. Unfortunately for my friend and I, there was a lady... More

The hostel is on the most amazing building, and is in a convenient walking distance to the tourist attractions. The rooms are spacious (at least the type we had) and clean, the staff helpful. Breakfast was weak, but we had our own food anyway.

Stayed here for two nights, didn't have to book or reserve which was great as I didn't know whether to stay for one or two nights (was playing it by ear after reading the reviews!) Location is great, just across the river from all the major sites, its a 40 min walk from the station but didnt seem too bad... More

Great place with a beautiful garden to read in. Great for budget travelers. The only annoying thing is the fact you can't enter the rooms between 9-16, but it forces you to go out and explore the city!

Beautiful villa 20 minute ride from the train station, and up the ancient winding roads of verona. It has been transformed into an international youth hostel. It has a beautiful view and atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Upon arrival we were offered fresh grapes from the harvest. An international atmosphere, catering to all ages. Free wifi and... More

The ostello is a big and clean hostel and, if you take a look at the other Hostels in verona, the cheapest one. But for 18 euros we would expect a better service. And the worst thing is, there are rules for going to bed and stand up in the morning. While the daytime (9-17) you can't enter your own... More
