“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

It's literally behind the Pisa Tower, so the location is really good. The staff is nice and helpful. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are cool. The only problem is the bathroom, they only have 2 showers for every room and you need to wait a lot to get your turn.

Also the information that is on the papers and walls it not correct.. So it's a little bit confusing! (but nothing special)

It's a good place to stay! I recommend it!

The hostel was the perfect location if like me you visited Pisa to see the tower, it's practically next door to it! Hostel is nice inside with some good communal space including a garden and living room. I stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm which was adequate. The also had air-con which was much appreciated.

The only downside to the hostel is the fact its only got two bathrooms (at least 10 people to shower + toilet) and with high demand the bathroom become dirty very quickly.

The value of the room is ok and includes the city tax so there is no extra surprise payments. This ideal if your passing through Pisa with the aim of seeing the tower.

Nice hostel, very friendly owners, nice, big and tidy rooms. Hostel is nicely decorated, the common room has everything you could possibly need. The hostel is located next to the leaning tower which is probably the best location in the city. All in all, this is the best choice when you are looking for a hostel in Pisa.

HA.

The hostel was great. It was clean and had a large kitchen. The staff was friendly and helpful. I did get bedbug bites and actually saw a bug crawling on my sheets. They changed my room no problem. Overall great location to the train station and Internet throughout he hostel, def a perk!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

This a very economy stay anywhere in Europe, I paid only a fraction of what I would have to pay at the other places, specially in Bordeaux, I paid 4 times a much and the service is just not as good.
This place has no A/C, well what do you expect, the bath room is ok, actually it has more room than other hostels I stayed in Paris and Italy.
Love the courtyard with table for picnic, clotheslines for your washing, and it was a blessing for me, saved a few Euros.
For accommodations, they have large room on the 2nd floor for free internet. Have a large freezer so you can stock your drinks (beer and wine and water), great big kitchen with some stencils and pots and pans, travelers are very much young and down to earth, we had great times sitting in the courtyard sharing drinks and food. Definitely, will come back for the friendly atmosphere, the accommodations and the price.
