It’s hard not to love this family-run hostel in a charmingly converted 17th century farmhouse. Nestled below the Assisi walls, its well-kept gardens are dotted with olive trees and look out over unbeatable views of the city, which is renowned for its artistic beauty.
Taking advantage of beauty and convenience, the hostel is located near to local monuments and the train station, with free outdoor parking and spacious, comfortable, en suite rooms available in both dorm and private form. Wi-Fi is free, and breakfast is included in the room charge: with all food prepared using fresh and local ingredients, you can sample typical Umbrian dishes and choose from a gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan selection too.
Near the centre but away from the hustle and bustle, you can reach main points of interest such as the famous Basilicas, with their skyline-dominating spires, in under a kilometre. The Appenine’s Monte Subasio, with its pink stones used frequently for many Franciscan buildings in Assisi, is less than 5 km away.
What travellers think
The only thing that I would change would be to install permanent soap dispensers in the bathroom. That really is an issue for travelers who have not brought their own soap with them. Everything else was great. I loved staying here - the perfect base from which to explore Assisi.
