I traveled to Pisa alone to check the city out and had such an amazing stay. Great staff, met so many new people in the room, comfortable bed...it was a perfect place to stay in Pisa (and a really good price at that)!

I stayed at the Walking Street Hostel with my partner, we stayed in a private room with a private bathroom. We enjoyed our time in Pisa, the hostel is in the great location in central Pisa in the middle of the busy shopping district, it was a five minute walk to the leaning tower and only a five minute walk from the train station. The Walking Street Hostel is quirky and a bit random in parts, much to our amusement! It is set in a beautiful old building, the hotel felt very safe.

The airport is really near the centre of Pisa and we were able to walk from the airport to the hostel in about 30 minutes. We arrived at 11pm to a very friendly welcome from the girl on reception who was able to show us around, the communal kitchen, computer with internet access and social area. We didn't spend any time in the communal areas so I can't really comment on this. We were able to buy a bottle of water and a couple of beers from the hostel for around 5 euros, which saved us looking for a shop that was open at 11pm!

Our Private room was located the floor below the main room so was very quiet considering the central location. It was basic but clean, there was a small kitchen area with a sink, washing machine and cooking hob - but there were no cooking equipment, I suspect if you required this that you would be able to borrow cooking things from the main kitchen?! Our bed was on a separate floor from the rest of the studio up some very stairs so wouldn't be suitable for anyone with mobility problems. There was a separate single bed and sofa in the main kitchen area,
so there was somewhere to sit. We couldn't get the Wi-fi to work in our bedroom but it worked fine in communal areas.

The bathroom was clean, but the shower door was very narrow and a bit of squash to get in and out! Not a major problem for us....

Our only problem which isn't the hostels fault is mosquitoes in the bedroom! We both bitten several times whilst we were there, there was net over both windows so I am not sure where they were coming from. Make sure you go aimed with repellent and bite relief! However this not affect our stay we enjoyed our stay in Pisa and would recommend this budget accommodation.

I loved my stay here and I have stayed in many hostels in the last two weeks. This hostel was quite different than most because it actually felt like a cozy home and I loved it. The staff was really friendly and always anxious to help you out. On top of all this it was only minutes away from great restaurants and the leaning tower of Pisa thanks guys. On top of all this was the puppy they had who anxiously awaited and greeted guests!

Staying at Walking Street Hostel was a wonderful experience. The hostel is clean and spacious, and the beds are comfortable. The bathroom is like your bathroom at home, which I particularly liked. There is plenty of tea, coffee and the like available all day long. The building is charming and well located in the city. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

The staff is fantastic! Ilaria even made us Christmas Dinner Italian Style! A warm thank you to all the staff at Walking Street for making what could have have been a lonely Christmas into a wonderful and memorable time.

Stayed at this hostel on 28th September and left my camera behind. I contacted the hostel and the great staff there arranged for it to be sent back to me in Scotland by courier. It arrived today exactly as promised! Thanks guys, great service.

The hostel itself is clean and bright, in an ideal location right in the middle of Pisa. Highly recommended!

I stayed here with some friends in sept 2012 (5 nights) and it was great. The staff helps out if you need anything and there is always someone at the reception. It has a great international feel to it, with tourists from all over. And there's a great mini pool table. Will definitely return if I'm in Pisa again.

We stayed here at the end of sept 2011 as a couple. The hostel is about 10minutes walk from the main railway station in Pisa, which is good.
We booked a private room with shared facilities and they've upgraded us free of charge to an ensuite, which was great. The room was spacious, we got an extra table moved in upon arrival - a nice gesture. The bathroom was very clean and the staff friendly.
Looked like a cheerful hostel, but there wasn't any noise to complain about.
We were able to leave our luggage after checkout for a few hours at no charge.
Overall a very good experience, we would definitely consider going back.
