I enjoyed my stay at Ciao Hostel. The rooms are spacious and the single storey beds are a nice touch. Could do with additional bathrooms. I had a long and frustrating wait on a couple of occasions. Excellent wifi. Well equipped kitchen but small communal area with no power sockets. Each floor is isolated and self contained so opportunities to mix with other people are limited. No safes or lockers. Had to carry my valuables around with me all day.
Biggest problem was that reception is only open during office hours. I arrived late and despite emailing to advise of late arrival found the building in darkness with the front door firmly locked. Wouldn't have been able to gain entry all night but for the good fortune of a kindly fellow guest returning from a night on the town, letting me in to the lobby area. Not a good start to my holiday.
Good value for money, spotlessly clean, a ten minute walk from the train station. You could do a lot worse.
