- Arrivals and Departures
Check-in is from 2 pm, but our reception is open 24/7, so even if you arrive in the early morning you’ll be more than welcome to chill in the common areas, have some breakfast, use all of our facilities or just store your luggage and stroll around town while you wait for your room to be ready.
Check-out is by 11.30 am, so we will need you to take all your belongings out of the room by that time. If you’re not planning to leave in the morning we can store your luggage for free all day long.
You can ask for a late check out (1 pm) for an additional price of 5€ – please arrange this in advance with our reception.
Our guests can stay with us for a maximum of 2 weeks at one time.
Make sure to bring valid identification with you, preferably a passport, government-issued I.D. card, or your driving license (only for our Italian guests). If you forget your documents, we won’t be able to check you in.

If you’re under 18 we will accept your booking only if you’ll attach and bring with you a signed Authorization of one of your parents or a person who acts in their stand. Guests who wish to bring their children under 10 years of age must book a whole dorm or private room.
- Room allocation
If you’re travelling with friends or family, we’ll do our utmost to book you in a room together – but this can’t always be guaranteed. If you want to make sure that you aren’t separated from your group, we’d suggest booking a private room or taking over a whole dorm.
