This hostel have a perfect location! Only 10 minutes walking to the center and to the train station! Very easy to find! The breakfast here is very good with more than one option! The rooms and bathrooms are clean. What I didnt enjoy a lot were the beds, the noise from the room above mine (sounds that kids live here... More

Good: reliable and fast WiFi. The location is 10 mins to the center of Bologna and train station. The breakfast was very generous, they even had a barista making free coffee for the guests! Bad: It's not very luxurious, it feels like a hospital more than a hotel. Conclusion: No frills, but it is an excellent value for an affordable... More

Budget accommodations in the center of Bologna are rare, so finding this hostel was a huge relief. The atmosphere is not backpacker style, but more university dorm housing setting. Since it was low season, there weren't many people staying here, so everything seemed huge and empty. That said, I had a decent two night stay here. The dorms were clean... More

Stayed there 2 nights, Its a bed, the staff are not quite suited for the "hostel" life. This place is dead, meaning there is no atmosphere at all, Its like a cheap hotel with some rooms being used as dorms. On a plus side my bed was comfortable but really hot but they had a fan in the room. I... More

I treated myself to a single room with attached bath. I expected basic, but I did expect a little more for 46 euros. The room was tiny, and the bed had a big crater in the middle. The breakfast was virtually inedible with bread rolls as hard as concrete. The place also seemed to be being used as some sort... More

Dear Guest, we are sorry about your negative review. We apologize for any inconvenience. I'm sorry to read your combination between security and homeless people. First of all we are not a shelter for homeless people but sometimes we host families in need. This does not mean poor security but, in our opinion, solidarity. best regards Matteo Martino More

It was difficult for me to find the budget accommodation in Bologna, and I just chose for a bed to stay, So, I wasn't expecting that much but actually, it was really good for me! The place is very close to everything, it was really good. The bed was nice. The room was kind of self service, but good enough.... More

Booked online for one day stay. Low season so was almost empty. The hotel is quite near to the Central Station. The share bathroom was clean and well maintained. The staff at the desk was very helpful. The breakfast was basic but pretty good. Will highly recommend for short stays.

It was quite clean, worth the money. I stayed only a night, it was good for that purpose. However would not choose for longer time. Nothing special.Kind staff. The huge corridors were indeed scary at night (the hotel was not that busy, when I stayed)...

Great location, rooms are clean and basic but quite big. However the shared bathrooms- some are dark (lacks lighting where the shower is) and the ones that are bright are dirty- smelly, clogged. The big spacious corridors to go to bathroom at night is pretty scary- it's dark (until lights turned on as u exit ur room) and its really... More
