Siena hostel was great. We stayed here for a few nights and the staff absolutely made you feel welcome. There was some construction on the building but this didnt affect us one bit while we were there. Breakfast was awesome and the common areas were plentiful - chance to chill alone or in the main dining area. Our room was a peivate twin and was great, comfy bed, extra blankets and a decent wardrobe. Bathrooms were shared and there were plenty available.the hostel is a little way from the public transport but we drove so no prob for us. Also staff happy to help with restaurant and sight seeing recommendations.

As a solo traveller & first time in a hostel accommodation, I had a great stay. Every staff so friendly & helpful. The room was a double room which was pretty roomy & very clean. I felt so comfortable there. Shared bathrooms were great, hardly saw other guests using them. Great location, bus stop into centro at doorstep, but a lovely 40min walk as an alternative. Bus from train/bus station also right at doorstep, just make sure to ask driver where to stop if unsure of area ( I mean the big black&white strips are now obvious, but sometimes easy to miss if on a bus when you can not see out window). Breakfast pretty good, just cereals, tea, coffee & juices and options to buy cheap croissants if you want. A very handy supermarket near by along with fruit shops and McDonald's within 5 minutes walk. My stay was great, would recommend.

Nice place and great staff. Minus: construction from 8 in the morning, and people walking past our window on the 2nd floor, no working aircondition and really bad wifi..takes hours to connect. Plus: staff, the bus to the city leaves just outside, bikerental and a nice garden :)

Hello! We would like to thank you for the review, very interesting because it gives us a lot of important feedback.
We are glad that you had made a good experience, despite the critical aspects that you have rightly pointed out.
We are finishing the renovation of the structure: in a very short time, we will have a new facade with excellent thermal insulation and new and fabulous family rooms with en-suite bathroom. The new air conditioned system is also suitable for cooling: we're waiting for the new machine which will operate the system, which already works with home automation technology.
The wifi is present and guaranteed in all public areas, but given the high number of guests and we have required an upgrade for the wifi system that will cover all the rooms.
We look forward in the future, so you can enjoy the experience with us in full.

I've really enjoyed my stay at Siena hostel, I felt so comfortable and welcome here. The staff are fabulous, very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable, I was upgraded for free to a twin room which was a treat after spending so much time in dormitory rooms. There's a great breakfast served in the morning. The hostel is a little way from the town but it is very simple to catch a bus to, bus stop is right outside the hostel and the staff are again more than happy to explain things for you. It was so nice coming back to this hostel after each day and I would definitely recommend this place to anybody wanting to visit Siena! In case I didn't mention this before, the staff are incredible!!!

It's taken me a while to write this, I went to Siena before Christmas. I had a great time there and was a bit sceptical about booking a hostel (because usually they are dorms and full of youngsters making noise) but no the place was very clean, cheap, extremely helpful and kind English-speaking staff and a great breakfast the next morning. There was lots of space at different areas of the hostel to chill out and they let us leave our bags there to explore before check-in time. Overall, very pleased with our stay there and would by far recommend it to our friends.

The owners treated us like royalty, helped us with everything we needed and more. The rooms are clean, cozy and good to sleep on in general. Worth the price! There's good stuff on the breakfast, a nice terrace and a great common area with a bar. Recommended!
