Take pleasure in the comforts of modernity set against its historical backdrop with cosy lounges and communal areas. You get the keys – so you can enjoy the freedom to come and go as you please and roam nearby attractions such as the Palazzo of the Princes, the town’s most notable Renaissance building, peruse art collections and lose yourself to the local festival of world music, Mundis, or the many rock festivals popping up throughout the year.

Tolles Ambiente, sehr freundlicher Umgang außergewöhnlicher Ort, sehr zentral. Eine kleine Kochgelegenheit, zumindest zum Wasserkochen, wäre schön, ansonsten gibt es genügend Bars in der Nähe, um zu frühstücken.

Es macht einfach Spaß in einem mittelalterlichen Gemäuer zu übernachten. Das es kein Frühstück gibt ist kein Problem. 100 m links und 150 m rechts der Herberge gibt es preiswerte Cafes für ein kleines Frühstück und rechts 100m ist eine tolle Eisdiele

...auch wenn es dort kein Frühstück gibt, das Ambiente ist toll. Die Vorstellung, wie es dort vor eineigen hundert Jahren zugegangen sein mag, das ist der Phantasie keine grenze gesetzt...

A little gem! This former small medieval fortress/prison has loads of charm to accompany its long and extraordinary past; very tastefully and sympathetically converted to a high speciation while retaining its historic integrity. Although the hostel does not provide meals the very reasonably priced restaurant/bar situated in the basement, and that spills out into the pavement outside the hostel, is another bonus. There is no shortage of cafes close by at which to obtain inexpensive breakfast.
