We stayed here for 4 nights and I can say that this was our best stay in Italy inspite of us having stayed in better starred places elsewhere. No-frills and absolutely homely is what I can safely say. Leonardo is a smart young man always ready to help. In fact he handed over 2 rail tickets to Pisa as few travelers earlier who couldn't travel there left them with him. The room is simple.. carry a mosquito repellant if the critters bother you. The bathroom is old & large and could do with some repair but hey at 50E a night, who's complaining? There's a computer with wifi free to use and loads of interesting information on the city lying with Leonardo. He directed us to a local pizzeria when we checked with him, which was superb & truly Italian (value).
It is opposite a lovely church and the walk to the centre (Duomo) and the evening markets is a short stroll. Leonardo gives you a key to the pensione and you can come in & go whenever you want.
I am definitely going to stay here again.
