The facilities at Ostello L'Archetto are everything a guest could wish for. The room, bathroom, kitchen, and dining facilities are superb, and everything is spotlessly clean. L'Archetto is situated within approx. 15 mins walking distance from Cremona train and bus stations, and about the same distance, or less, to the centre of the town.
Electronics can be problematic - but fortunately, any problems are quickly and effectively dealt with by the very efficient owner.
Located ten minutes' walk from the station and five minutes (across a busy junction) from the historic centre, the hostel provides all you need and nothing you don't for a convenient stay in Cremona, at a very reasonable price. We had a twin private room with bathroom (huge shower cabinet), clean, with comfortable beds. Fresh, bright, minimal decor. Breakfast available at a small discount in a relaxed trendy bar round the corner (and the hostel has a 50-cent coffee machine in the kitchen/sitting-room area). Hostess and staff were friendly, obliging and polite. Old Cremona is compact and full of beauty and interest (especially if you're into violins), but pleasantly low-key, old-fashioned even, and (in January at least) tranquil and notably welcoming to visitors.
The only disappointment was the restaurant—Trattoria Cerri—with which the hostel supposedly has an arrangement for its guests. A pity, because at first sight it's an attractively unpretentious old-style eatery with a good evening atmosphere, and the young barman/waiter was molto simpatico. Granted it's not expensive; but the food was awful (we had the more or less the same dishes done well in other places), the house wine undrinkable, and although we made it clear both when booking and paying that we were staying at the hostel, the bill shows that we weren't given the promised discount after all. L'Archetto should find someone else to partner with.
Well designed hostel with good facilities. Very clean, bed was comfortable and good location. Not to far from train station and very close to the football stadium. Friendly staff too. Would recommend.
