My sister and I spent four nights in this hostel during our Italian trip this summer and we were 100% happy with this choice - they have everything you could ask for in a hostel. It's located right off the main street of Lower Town (next to Porta Nuova) 5 minutes by bus from the train station, about 20 minutes... More

I have stayed here on several occasions over the last few years, either passing through to other parts of Italy or just having a short break in this pleasant city. The value for money is excellent, and you cannot fault the rooms - they may not be luxurious, but always very clean and well equipped. (Ok there's no tea/coffee facilities... More

I stop off in Bergamo every now and then on my way to explore the Balkans. Central Hostel never disappoints. The staff are extremely polite and helpful, and the Hostel is really well priced for Italy. I usually stay in the separate rooms, which are clean and spacious with a bathroom, and has a TV and safe- up to the... More

I say this because obviously the majority of visitors will go "up top". Bergamo Bassa is my preferred choice for a one night stop. Central hostel is close to the railway station and the airport bus and the lower town is very nice indeed. The hostel is very friendly, clean and well equipped. The rooms are great and as good...

Very nice staff and nice hostel ! The room was very clean and the location was very nice. Parking spot close to the hostel, which was also nice. Forgot my shoes and they were really friendly and helpful in sending them back.

It a cheap and best solution for an overnight stay, especially when you have a flight connection. Basic, but clean, central location 3 min walk from airport bus, 7 min walk from train station. Good WIFI. Breakfast was basic. Young staff at reception, but kind and helpful. I stayed there 2 nights, one night on each way. Would chose again... More

I stayed there for one night just to wait for my next flight. The hostel is good, my room was comfortable (i booked a single), a good shower even with a shower gel. Breakfast was even better than I supposed for a hostel, I was surprised! and a very tasty coffee. The girl at the reception was extremely nice)))))) The... More

Best advantage is location (close to stations, bus stop and to the shopping streets)and and for guests with car free car park. Staff was ok, there were free computers to use, wifi in our room was strong. Breakfast was only sweet.

Excellent location, ultra modern and lovely rooms. Staff couldn't be more helpful. Was exactly what I needed for my two night stay. I have friends in Bergamo so will be basing myself in this hostel going forward when I visit.

We stayed there only one night, in a dormitory - a 5 bed-room. Everything was average at best, nothing special, but the price was quite high for a hostel. The girl in the reception was nice and helpful.
