Very few other guests and very quiet place. No communal space or kitchen. Nice breakfast at another, hotel location. Good price and location in a very hilly town. Bring good hiking shoes.

Couldn't really rate this hostel as it was over-booked, time period for check-in on the website is not correct and we had to wait for a few hours for the owner to arrive at the premises. After all the wait, the owner took us to a nearby accommodation place and said the price was the same. However, the new place tried to get more. The situation spoiled my experience in Cortona.

The owner (?) had fully booked the hostel to a party for the duration of my stay. He put me up in his hotel (including breakfast) not far away for the same price as the hostel. I therefore can't comment on the hostel but apart from not letting me know he was fully booked and saving me a steep walk I have no complaints.
