Hostel Pisa




The Review

Hostel Pisa is a big hostel with several floors in Pisa, Italy. It is basic, but well located and has a nice restaurant and bar.

The Location

Hotel Pisa is super easy to find from both the airport and the railway station. When you leave the airport, you walk in a straight line on a main road toward the railway track. Once you reach the bridge over the railway track, you see a big sign indicating the hostel on top of a building on your right-hand side. This walk will take approximately fifteen minutes. From the railway station, you exit to the right and you will find the hostel on the right side after five minutes' walking. The hostel is not at the heart of the city, but still everything is in walking distance and there are some food joints and mini-markets in two minutes' walking from Hostel Pisa. Pisa’s main street is five to ten minutes on foot, while you can find the leaning tower of Pisa in about twenty minutes.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Hostel Pisa offers both dorms and private rooms. All dorms host only a few guests and are en suite. There is a big locker in which you can fit your backpack and there is a socket next to each bed. However, the rooms are very basic and can use some maintenance. The bathroom is tiny and if you are not slim, you may not be able to get into the shower easily as the distance between the doors is narrow.

Common Spaces

The hostel’s common area is the true gem of Hostel Pisa. The entire ground floor and their huge garden is a common area. Here you can hang out, order (alcoholic) drinks and order (Italian) food throughout the day. You can either order an a la carte dinner, or you can subscribe for the buffet. The prices are very competitive. There is no space to prepare your own food.


If you are fine with a very basic room you may be all right, but room-wise there are much better options in Pisa for the same budget. However, from a social aspect, Hostel Pisa is one of the best choices it Pisa, Italy. The hostel’s bar is nice, and the food is a good alternative if you do not want to head out for a meal.

One of the best hostels I know
Everything was fine, the hostel is central and very modern. The bar and the food was great and cheap (we loved the cocktails). The rooms are big and clean and the staff are nice and helpful. We would always come back.

Excellent Hostel!
I really loved this place. It was clean, full bathroom in the room, excellent lunch and dinner buffet, reasonable food and beverage prices, and great cafe area. The staff was very kind and international. I've been to two hostels after leaving here and it was the best of the three for all services. If you don't mind sharing a room with fellow travelers this place is a must. Only like 20 euros a night!

Only 1 fault and you won't care
1 fault -- no tips to pool cues. Fantastic facilities and communal spaces. Great staff. Great people.
Central Hostel Pisa is just what a backpacker needs to regain energies for continuing the journey. It boasts an easy location, sufficient facilities, and mostly new appearance (although you see that the building is not new). The Location Outside the main region with the attractions, it is located within walking distance from the Airport (around a kilometer), the train station (five hundred meters), and the Pisa Tower (one-and-a-half kilometers). It is easily found -- you only need to walk one street from the train station and two from the airport. Parking in Pisa doesn't seem that easy, and the hostel has no parking spaces. It's not so close to the river, so there are not so many mosquitoes. Rooms and Bathrooms It is a big hostel, with four floors and many different types of rooms. Some of them share a toilet, others have the bathroom in the room. Every room has a locker per bed, but you have to bring your own lock or buy one at the reception. The mattresses are in good condition, and the pillows are comfortable. The bathroom is big enough but neither soap nor specific places to put toiletries and clothes are provided. The shower is ok, but be careful with the curtain, which is thin and allows some drops of water to pass through. The heating system in the room is very good (maybe a little too good), keeping it warm such that you don't need a blanket to sleep. Common Spaces Several common spaces are provided in this hostel -- there is a room with some tables in case somebody wants to have breakfast there (although breakfast is not provided), a couch, and a TV as well as a game room; computers are available, and Wi-Fi is free in the whole hostel. There are not so many people around there, but the spaces are there. The hostel also has agreements with party places, with reduced entry fees or exclusive parties. Summary This is a hostel that provides a number of facilities and charges below average price, and certainly is recommended. The staff are also friendly, so if you go to Pisa, this is a very good place to stay.
