The hostel is in the middle of the old town in an old villa with a large central courtyard with lots of plants and open air. The room was big, had air conditioning, a fridge and microwave, and a private bath. The canopied double bed was a tad small for two of us, but was very comfy.
The bathroom was smallish and the shower a bit claustrophobic, but the water pressure was forceful. The liquid soap dispenser was full of water, not helpful, and there was no shampoo or conditioner available, so a small bar of soap would have been the only option had we not brought our contingency shower gel with us.
The restaurant is 100 meters away on the plaza which is also where we checked-in. Ristorante Italiano Tuscana has an extensive menu of antipasti, pastas, meat dishes, desserts, and a full bar. They have an indoor, air-conditioned dining room and tables outdoors on the plaza. The food was very good, the portions appropriate, and the prices fair. We ate there twice and enjoyed our meals along with their resident dog, Rocco, who was very sweet, lingering near outdoor diners, but not begging or being a nuisance at all.
Our dinners, a starter, main and wine/water ran around €50, not bad for good meal for two.
The first night we has l'insalata caprese €8 and tortelli 4 formaggi ai burro e salvia €15 for my wife and the lasagna bolognese €10 for me along with a bottle of water with gas and a liter of sangria €12. My lasagna was delicious and HUGE, but my wife's tortelli had not been properly drained, watering down the rich butter and sage sauce, but my wife still enjoyed it.
On the subsequent evening, we forewent the starter, my wife ordering the tagliatelli con funghi €10, me the spaghetti carbonara, and sharing the cotoletta alla milanese €12, a bottle of water and two glasses of house red wine. All were very tasty, especially the carbonara which was prepared in the traditional way by adding egg yokes just before serving with plenty o' pepper ... HOOAH!
At €65 for our room, much lower in the off-season, Hostal Sixto and Ristorante Toscana were a definite Travelvalue and worth a return visit the next time we go to Naval Air Station Rota.
