Palazzo Pierantoni – Ostello di Foligno Reviews

Central modern, clean hostel in historic centre of town.

Location has many shops in area, with 10 minute walk to rail station. Staff was knowledgeable if a bit bureaucratic. Meager standard Italian breakfast. Access to the kitchen is not allowed.


Being an old monastery and now youth hostel owned by the city of Foligno, this was the best hostel we have seen on our Inter Rail trip.

The rooms are cheap, clean and often they have their own bathroom. It's quiet and 5 minutes away from the city center by walking (Foligno is a very small city) The garden is perfect for reading and relaxing. There are fruit trees all over and frescoes on the wall.

Free breakfast includes fruit juice and cereals (next to the standard bread, jam, croissant, tea and coffee).


It took us over an hour to find this hostel (it was advertised as being 5 min. from the train station!)Leave the station and head toward the ARCH via Ottaviani, after passing under the arch the street is called via Umberto. At the piazza (this should only take about 3 - 4 min. after leaving the train station) take a right on via Garibaldi, walk for about a minute and keep looking to the left for a very small alley street=via Pierantoni. At the time we were there it was completely covered in scaffolding and unidentifiable. Enter the narrow walkway and the hostel is at the end of the lane. The alley will then dead end. Hopefully these instructions will prevent future backpackers from spending an hour in the rain looking for it.

The staff was welcoming and accomadating. We were there in November and got a dorm room with 4 beds and our own bathroom for 16 E each. We didn't have a card, but this was no problem. Breakfast was served in a room downstairs and was better than average--choice of hot chocolate, coffee, tea, milk, juice from containers that kept the drinks either cold or hot. Choice of breads and cold cereal. There was no big rush or wild food scramble that you hear about in some hostels.

Also be aware that the town offers bus service to some of the surrounding hill towns. The bus station is close to the train station--but located at a gas station/bar. At first you aren't sure it IS a bus station, but look behind the building and there are bus bays and usually some activity identifying it. Overall, there is nothing to do in Foligno, but it can be a base upon which to launch daytrips to Spoleto, Spello, Trevi, and Montefalco.

I loved my stay in Foligno and at Palazzo Pierantoni. No one else was there so I had an entire dorm room to myself. Great location, helpful, kind staff (especially Illania). A gem of a little town and a great value hostel! Clean, well equipped, great location! Would stay again

thposition is very good, at the center and station is very near from where you can reach assisi, perugia, spello... easily.and you do not stay in a touristic place, but in a normal italian city.

Customer review

The staff and friendliness of all the workers was the best I have ever encountered at a hostel. It was also extremely clean and the entertainment was great. Also the free breakfast was delicious. Foligno is also such a peaceful town and close to other great towns in the area inclluding Assisi. This truly is a great hostel.
