“great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2012

Absolutely loved that place. Super clean & tidy, comfy beds, nice rooms with private bathroom and balkony. Fully equipped guest kitchen, common room with tv, pool table, darts, free computers and wifi in rooms! Super friendly and helpful staff who provided me with all the information. Great location too in a quiet residential area but only few miutes walk to the beach and all the bars. City centre within walking distance. Supermarket just round the corner, snacks and cheap drinks available at the hostelbar. Cheers guys, I really had a great stay at Rimini!

I've been there for a couple of days and the first stuff I noticed is the homely atmosphere! Staff is super friendly and give you a lot of infos ( places to visit, restaurants, pubs, buses etc..). Free internet and wi-fi are great and the kitchen is really usefull ( and clean!!). The girl that cleans the rooms is really nice and does all the best to don't wake you up while she's cleaning the dorm. :) I've been in different hostels but this is the first one that is just...like my home :) Breakfast is nice. The beach is 5 min walking and the city center is 10 min walking ( perfect location!). 10 min walking also from the train station! I hope to come back on the summer :) Enjoy Sunflower Hostel!

Website looks good and so did previous reviews but didn't live up to expectations at all. I wasn't exactly looking for the Hilton but a clean basic hotel would've been nice. The small bathroom had a broken toilet seat and a toilet paper holder that even Peter Crouch would have struggled to reach. In the room itself the heaters weren't working and there were bare wires running down the walls from light sockets. Added to this our room was not cleaned once during our 3 night stay and even one day we returned to our room to find the balcony door wide open, luckily all our stuff was still there! Definately the place to go if you like and early start, about 7am each day, as you can hear everyone and everything through the paper thin walls, and if that doesn't wake you the chap next door definately will with his pneumatic drill from 7.30am onwards. The only postives I could possibly come up with is the one member who staff who told us about the city and the best places to go upon arrival and the free internet usage. The location isn't bad either, 10mins walk from the train station which is also where you catch buses to San Marino etc. I may well return to Rimini someday but will definately be looking at different hotels/hostels.

I've been to the hostel just for 3 nights. I should say that everything was perfect there. It is the right place to stay with a reasonable price. The only unconvinience is reception desk which is working not 24 hours. We arrived to Rimini rather late and we've been worried that we wouldn't be in time at the hostel to check-in. But we succeed! Except this everything was perfect! All the staff was very friendly and helpfull there.The location of hostel is very comfortable, it is just in the middle between downtown and seaside, 5 min to both. Trainstation is also nearby.
We booked a twin room with a shower inside. The room was rather good. There is a kitchen inside the hostel so you can cook. The breakfest was also not bad. But in case you would like to stay there longer than 3 days you can get bored of it. They have couple of computers in the hall so you can use internet when you need it. It is free of charge.
We enjoy staying at this hostel very much. If you need something cheap you can easily choose Sunflower and you won't be dissapointed!

Me and my friend stayed at the Sunflower City Backpacker hostel for 6 nights at the end of June. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the owners are ex-backpackers themselves. The atmosphere was nice and the wall papers really added to the style of the hostel which was straight from the 60's. The location was good, it wasn't far from the beach or the city center. I'd definitely stay here again.

This hostel is one of the best that I have stayed in whilst travelling.

-Clean rooms with good blankets
-En suite room
-Cheap -- around 10 euro a night
-Close to beach and to train station, maybe 15 min walk into old town
-Friendly staff
-Cheap and well stocked bar on sight
-TV room, board games
-Restos and tabbachis and supermarket close by.

The only thing was that the hostel isnt staffed 24/7 and if you lose your key (or room mate) you are seriously stuck until somebody can come and open the door.

Otherwise...fan tastic!!!
