Reviews (9.7 Wonderful)
It was really a nice hostel. The staff is friendly. My recommendation is put a board or a sticker on the corner. So people can easily find the exact place.
Very nice guys at the reception, at least 2 out of 3, and great hospitality. Kids are welcome, I would encourage families to go there, although it is not clear if they pay or not. Location is perfect, very close to porto antico and downtown.
Just a perfect place with great people! Thanks to them I really felt at home. The hostel is perfectly clean, and designed with style, the staff is very helpful, they make the atmosphere really familiar and full of fun. Grazie a Isabella, Davide e Matteo!
Thank you Davide and colleague for your open, attentive and welcoming presence!
Ostellin is a great place to start exploring the city. It's very unique old majestic building and very individual interior makes it even greater. Thanks to the friendly owners we got to see all the cool places. Thank you!
