The staff is super kind and welcoming, they went out of their way to make us feel at home. The hostel is an old mill on the Tiber River and the structure has been beautifully renovated. The location is perfect to access Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Spoleto and the rest of Umbria. After a day of visits, at night you can have dinner al fresco in their beautiful courtyard. The end of august 2012 was exceptionally warm for Italy (it was actually the warmest summer in the last two centuries!!) but the ancient and thick walls of the building miraculously kept the place much cooler than it was outside. The internet connection was fast. We felt at home! Highly recommended.
