The Hostel is housed in a charming original ‘Dolce Vita‘ Villa… once upon a time Zagarolo was called “Zagarhollywood” and many v.i.p. used to take refuge in the area so to relax in the green, enjoy the good food, good wine, good life!

… the Villa housing Wiki Hostel was built to be the house of the sons of Mario Lanza, Hollywood and Cinecittà Studios actor, most of all singer of the famous “Arrivederci Roma” song, the Villa was filled with exotic plants, this is the origin of our unique bamboo forrest and green oasis! Between 60s and 70s Zagarolo was really full of famous v.i.p. and still now some of them still live just nearby us, as for example Ursula Andress the  famous 007 bond girl!
