My first issue with this hostel was that there was no signage. I wandered around the streets looking for it for a while. Picked up its wifi signal but couldnt see it. It is in a brown building with an open door and there is an a4 piece of paper with the name of the hostel on it on that open door. I stayed in a mixed dorm which was reasonable for a hostel. There were free breakfasts which consisted of croissants and coffee. Staff were happy to help if you had a question. There was free wifi and a computer you could use if you needed to. I walked from the hostel to most locations such as the Duomo. There is a metro station nearby if you need it. The airconditioning in my room was really bad and so it was pretty warm in there. There also wasnt a lot of powerpoints in my room so not everyone could charge their phones and cameras.
As for your whole trip in Italy, I highly recommend the Triposo Italy iphone app! It saved me so many times because it has maps of each city available offline and it picks up your gps signal without needed an internet connection. Life saver!
