“just perfect”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2011

Very big rooms for 5 poeple with 2 bathrooms, efficient air conditionning, very clean, not noisy at all, breakfast included...
Centraly located, nice area.
First time in a hostel at 37 years old. I'll do it again.

NB: the little restaurant in front of the entrence "Patatoe's something" is excellent which should be difficult for a retaurant that cooks only pataoes. Just try and you would adore!

It was a nice, large hostel. Not the typical hostel and not specifically for youth but nevertheless easy to meet people and very friendly staff. Cleanliness was ok, the breakfast was good for what Italians usually consider breakfast. Location was perfect but a bit difficult to find at first. I also liked the way the rooms looked, with 2 floors in one room, some sort of open floor and every room was different. The rooms, apart from the bathroom, were spacious.

The hotel is located in the heart. Access to the hotel through the beautiful narrow streets. I slept in a room four-room suite. The rooms very average. The bathrooms are ok. The service at reception was very nice, but early the next morning she could not find my passport, which I left with them! I was very upset because I had two hours flight to Spain. Breakfast is included in the price is just cake and tea or coffee, so you'll still hungry. I recommend if you do not find anything cheaper

This hostel has an absolutely perfect location for any traveler. The entire city center was within walking distance for us, so all of the attractions were accessible by foot. The bus station where the airport transfer bus dropped, and where the buses going to Poetto Beach and Villasimius depart was only a 7 minute walk. The rooms were extremely clean, but you are in rooms with about 7 other people so the only complaint I had was people coming in during the middle of the night, or loud snoring. However, this is to be expected in any hostel. The staff was extremely helpful, spoke great English, and were very friendly. The man serving breakfast was so nice, even though he only spoke Italian. If I went back, I would definitely stay here again!

Marina Hostel is conveniently located a short walk from trains / ferry and the historical centre. The staff are very nice and helpful, all speak good English. Rooms are spacious, bathrooms ok, although the flow of water in the shower is a little funny. Reasonable breakfast, a beautiful patio with tropical plants, a luggage room for your convenience. Bars and restaurants in the vicinity, the building itself is very interesting, and there’s a lift which will take you to higher floors. On the negative side, no internet.

I stayed here for three nights with a group of friends and we loved the place. Luca the manager has lots of good tips for places to go and eat. All the staff are incredibly friendly. the location can't be beat! you are walking distance from everything. Since it it brand new, everything is clean and modern, quality clean bathrooms, a/c and a center courtyard which has decent food and reasonably priced drinks. definitely a gem!

good location too... right in the center of cagliari.
It's a hostel but they have double and family rooms too, with ensuite bathroom. We paid about 55 euros for a double room with bathroom.
last but not least, they serve proper coffee for free breakfast.

Would definitely recommend this place......
