Sergio is the nicest guy, and everyone there is so accommodating. The place is very clean, and there is a large common area where you can hang out. There's also a vending machine and a coffee machine. There's wifi, but it's not that great sometimes. The food is also amazing! I would definitely recommend staying here. It's at the top... More

After multiple confirmations with Sergio for this hostel about our booking for "one triple room with bathroom inside the room" and "one double room with bathroom inside the room", we arrive at the hostel to see that (apparently) NONE of the rooms have bathrooms inside the room, and the "private" bathroom for our double room (which was really a 6...

I loved my room, for 25 euros a night I got everything I needed, there is Wifi, bathroom fully equipped and comfy bed. View to a lovely antique narrow alley, like in the movies. Managers are super nice and smiley, cute breakfast, personal service. amazing experience. I feel like coming back already :)

Great place to stay, can't wait to go back to Cortona. It was a good location, large rooms and clean. The bathroom was clean with nice hot shower. Sergio was very helpful, let us leave our luggage there after checking out. Only problem was the breakfast, wish they didn't have to include that in the price, it was so unhealthy,... More

Inexpensive! Close to the main Pizza. The building is old and beautiful, but can be a little quiet and creepy when empty. Basic accomodation for a cheap price in one of the best towns in Italy. Make sure you have the hosts cell number. We arrived at the time I told him and he wasn' there, so I had to... More

I stayed here for a week in July and adored it. Sergio was so helpful and friendly. If you are nice and chatty with them, they will be eager to please. They listened to our individual requests and bought specific things that they knew we liked. I would also recommend the dinners they have- delicious. Close to the town center... More

After confirming our reservations twice (via email), my husband and I were surprised to find that our room was "not available" when we arrived. Sergio, the guy who runs the hostel, was very helpful, though, and found us a room at a nearby monastery. The following day we returned to Ostello San Marco, and were able to check into our... More
