There's nothing specifically wrong with this hostel, I just didn't feel it was very friendly. If you check in after 19:00 you get charged an extra 10 euros, which for me meant that the price of my stay went up by 50%. When I emailed the management to enquire about this charge, I received a rude response. The staff at... More

It says B&B but is a hostel. While the entrance was a bit difficult to find the first time, the location can't be beat and the hostel is great. Clean, modern, and quiet with a friendly staff- and I mean really friendly. I ran into a couple of them on the street and they stopped to say hey. Great value!... More

All the rooms and bathrooms where very clean and had good facilities - in a few bathrooms there were showers that squirted you from the side! (Really fancy). Breakfast is included in the price but is a very standard meal. With only toast or croissant to choose from with jam or Nutella and a single piece of fruit so make... More

Il Castello is a B&B (but really, for me it looked just like a hostel!) situated right in the centre of Bologna. It's in a quiet little alley 2 minutes away from piazza maggiore! The building is very pretty with a marble entrance hall and a lift that takes you to the rooms. I stayed in an mixed 8 bed... More

Me and a friend stayed two nights during our time travelling italy and this was a favourite of ours. We stayed in a mixed dorm of 4 people and the place was immaculate. Jacuzzi showers in this place are awesome. Best part really was the people, as far as i understand theirs a lot of students in bologna so we... More

I was put into a bedroom with 8 beds, and the place is immaculate. The common room is incredibly modern and clean. The showers have jets in the wall like a jacuzzi. And it's cheap. I only paid around €40 for two night. I don't know when these other reviews were taken, but this place is amazing. Maybe they remodelled... More

I the beginning of the year I have booked single room in Il Castello Room & Breakfast Boutique for two night for very good price but just while after that receptionist called me saying that it was a mistake on the side, someone put lower price than it should be and I have to pay more. I said that I... More

So comfortable and clean rooms. It's a little bit difficult to find entrance. However the staff are gentle and you can take breakfast free.

It's a great place for a stay on a budget -- the location makes up for it being a bit loud in some rooms (some are seperated only by a VERY thin wall-like construction) and some staff. The service (and breakfast) depends on who's on duty -- there was a very nice and helpful lady at first, then there was... More

Arrived at this hostel. Took me a while to find it as it is just part of a residential building. Checked into the smallest possible room. Bed was comfortable enough but walls paper thin and could hear anything and everything going on in the building. Breakfast was some warm bread and rubbish coffee. In the morning the shower was blocked... More
