My name is David, I started our family hostel 7 years ago when my wife and I shared our little "palazzina" home in the old town with guests and since then then we have hosted many happy travellers. I have 2 little girls Emily and Catherine who are 5 and 3 years of age respectively and who I absolutely adore. I love my job and I can see myself doing this forever :-) I think people love staying here because it creates such a chilled out atmosphere and the large balconies and terrace allow people to meet very easily. There are many great restaurants and cafes nearby and the beach is only a short walk. Being so close to the train station is also very convenient for day trips.
