“Poor location, poor breakfast... but outstanding service!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

The service is the key word here. They were all sooo friendly and willing to help out at this hostel - a couple of the men were even a sight for sore eyes :-P

The doors in the corridor outside our room seemed to have no springs and banged shut everytime someone left a room! The room was very average and the breakfast, well what can I say, I bought my own teabags, bread and toppings and had a feast because a cup of weak tea and a cold croissant just doesn't do it for me. Also, we didn't realise until after we bought our groceries on our first night that there is in fact no kitchen available.

However... despite all these drawbacks the friendly staff made our two-day stay in Siena very enjoyable, their rates were very good and we left happy :-)

My friend and I had a great stay at this hostel. It was clean, the people at the front desk were super friendly and helpful, and it was a very affordable price. We stayed in a private 2 bed room, and while it was small, there was a sink in the room, a nice big window, and definitely enough space for 2 people. The only slight inconvenience is the location, since you have to take a bus to and from Siena, but for the price and cleanliness of the hostel, I think it was worth it.
There was a common bathroom on the floor, but it was the nicest I've ever been to in a hostel- each stall was like a mini room with a toilet and sink.
And breakfast was included, which was awesome!

Marco, Alessandro & Leonardo (front desk clerk, general manager & concierge) always greeted us with a smile. Every day they made sure we were happy with our accomodations. They highlighted points of interest on the map, so we could find things easily. They arranged taxi service so we would stay on our agenda. The hostel\hotel was clean and safe, with crispy white sheets. They included a continental breakfast that was quite sufficient. We had home made croissants with nutella and other jams along with juice or cappuccino.
