We have a twin room, it was okay, the room were spacious certainly big space for stuff. The large bathroom are well kept, everything were good. The hotel reception is closed at 20:00 and open in the morning from 8 am, so if there is an emergency I don't know where to call, there is no phone inside the room and the lady infront she didn't mentioned any emergency number, so probably never have problem in this hotel

The location is very convenient, train station is next door. The commecial center is about 200 meter walking. L'Aquila is not very touristy, most visitors are local. Foreign tourist seems did not find their way here. Mostly Italian staying in this hotel. There is no breakfast in this hotel. Breakfast can be done in commercial center. The exterior of the hotel is especial with some decoration even the front desk is heavily decorated for easter. Is not really worth the price, but okay for a night stay

One thing, this hotel or hostel is so easy for traveler without a car, the train station next door is just a few steps to the hotel. Car parking is at the back from the building.

By the way the hotel is closed at 20:00 but you can always in and out. The roomkey works outside the door too, so is not a problem if you are out the whole night as long you have a roomkey

Easy access, on the edge of town and above the railway station.
But we did not hear a peep from the trains. Well built building.
Safe parking behind the building but not secure, although out motocycle was fine.

While we stayed it was a holiday and the breakfast place in our building was shut. Reception sent us up the road to look for a place we couldnt find. Mainly a language barrier because out Italian is poor. So all good...

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 :-)

Recommended.

Enjoy!
