Wonderful 'hotel' just by & above L'Aquila rail station, approx 3 kms from the historical centre but very quite area; the station in L'Aquila only gets a few Regional services a day, none during the night so do not think that the arrival/departure of trains might disturb your sleep - they do not!
I am not aware why they keeo the word 'hostel' in the name, but trust me when I say it is much much better than a 3*** anywhere else in Italy (Rome for example), my room was extremely spacious and very clean, the bathroom large and the shower cubicle could not be better; there are 2 buildings, one is the hotel proper and some newer rooms are across the road, just above the actual rail station (security is extremely good if you were wondering)...
Reception is manned by very friendly and helpful people, I believe might be the owners but I am nt sure.
Breakfast is very light, so do not expect anything more than a cappuccino and a croissant or two, but this does not matter in L'Aquila where food is good and cheap :-)
