The "Plus" at San Sisto is the Staff. They are all, very helpfull , polite, with a good knowledge on everything around. After that...there is a lot of work to do... The place is 20 to 30 minutes, by bus, from the train station to San Sisto, and at San Sisto area....there is nothing... No stores, no restaurants..."Nada"....but beautiful pheasants... More

Nice hostel. Beds weren't as bad as expected. Helpful staff. Showers are also nice. It's a little far from the city center, and buses don't run frequently. Long story short, you get what you pay for. Can't really complain. My stay was nice bc I met a lot of cool people too :)

Although this hostel wasn't terrible, I wouldn't have wanted to stay there for more than my two nights. It was very very basic (everything from the lumpy beds to dried bread for breakfast). Pros: Nice hot showers Free pizza delivery service Although no guest kitchen, there is a fridge and microwave available Reasonably clean. Cons: Less than optimal location. Although... More

Nos quedamos unos días y al estar en auto nos resultó. En sí las habitaciones, duchas, baños y desayuno están bien, básico pero cómodo. El problema fue el ante ultimo día... Cuando al rededor de las 18 hs una persona levanto la persiana, la trabo con dos palos de cada lado e intento robar lo que estuviese a mano. Afortunadamente... More

Firstly it's NOT very far from town, just 20mins bus ride. They give you bus time tables, maps and anything you need. So be smart and plan your day, yo! IT IS clean & cheapest stay around, but terrible wifi, worn out beds and hospital deco. makes it somewhat unpleasant. it's a huge building with lots of green areas. could... More

This hostel was my first hostel, so at that time, there wasn't too much to be complained. Everything was just okay, breakfast was normal (not tasty). The only thing I want to complain is about the location. It's really far from the center! It's impossible to walk back! After 20:00, you have to take another bus, which probably takes about... More

The good: The place itself was nice, and the staff were OK. It was clean enough, and quiet. The average: There was no place to sit during the day as they locked the dining hall, but you could stay in your room, or outside in the garden. The bad: The food was really awful: really cheap bread and cereals. But... More

The showers were horribely dirty and i have been stolen my passport, but the reception stuff was very rude and didn't want to help me. They told me that if I don't come back from the police office until 23h, that i will have to sleep outside the hostel, because after 11p.m. they are closing it, and you cannot get... More

Since this hostel is the only option of affordable accomodation we found in Bologna we had to book it. But we are used to hostels so we were fine with the idea... Arriving to the hotel with the instructions provided by the hostel was a little hard since we didn't know the city at all and also didn't have a... More
