Me and my girl friend spend 2 nights in Alla Dimora Altea at the end of 2013. Our check-in was supposed to be later than the office hours, hence Matteo and Alessio (the two guys who run the hostel) were very cooperative by organising a hand-over of the room keys to us (including the digicode for the central door).
In general, we can not say but the best about Matteos and Alessios hospitabilty, their disposition and their endeavour to make us feel as comfortable as possible.
The rooms were very clean, the bath rooms with shower, fan, douche gel, shampoo and towels (everything provided), the roof terrace with a breathtaking view above the city as far as the surrounding hills around the town. I am talking about rooms in plural, as we extended our stay for one other night and were kindly transferred to a 2nd room, who was as impeccable as the first.
The location is close to the Santa Maria train station, the banks of the Arno river and its tourist districts are within a 20 min walking distance.
Given the rather tiny price per night and what you get in return, in combination with two great hosts, we can - in good conscience - recommend this hostel to any potential customer who is looking for an affordable accomodation.
Big thanks again to Alessio and Mateeo for their hospitality,
Martin & Angela
