Wunderfull hostel in an old monastery in the city center of Alessandria. Very nice and helpful stuff, clean rooms. The beds are okay, at my stay there weren't much guests so it was really calm. No soap or towels in the bathroom and no keys for the lockers (didn't ask tho, probably you would get them then) Would come again!

Das Haus liegt zentral mitten in der Altstadt. Der Parkplatz befand sich auf öffentlicher Fläche vor dem Gebäude. Das Eingangstor war nachts verschlossen, so das keine Fremden ins Haus gelangen konnten. Der Mitarbeiter an der Rezeption sprach Englisch,war ausgesprochen nett und hilfsbereit. Wir waren zu Dritt ohne andere Gäste in einem 12-Bett-Raum untergebracht und hatten dort unser eigenes WC, Dusche, Waschbecken. Alles war sauber und ordentlich. Abendessen und Frühhstück gab es nicht.

Nice hostel in converted monastery. Not the easiest of places to find, but nice facilities. Also very close to the town's football stadium (the reason for my stay)

This hostel was perfect - lovely building, lovely staff so friendly and helpful - they went to a lot of trouble to assist with routes & maps for my onward travel- and excellent location -even parking! BUT! Nowhere to cook anything in this huge space. Luckily for me I had prepared a meal and used microwave. Kettle was good too. HI must understand that hostellers look for kitchen facilities!
