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...

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.

I stayed for one night at Central Hostel in a double room. Very well located in the city centre, easy to get to the main attractions, close to the train station (5 minute walk) and to the airport bus stop. Simple and clean room. Free wifi and also a computer room! Staff friendly and kind. Very basic breakfast and only... More

This hostel feels more like a hotel -although the price is definitely a hostel price! We paid about £25 each for a night in a private single room (at the time of year we went it was only £1/2 more expensive than a form). Very friendly and helpful staff, who spoke great English. Free wifi was a bonus, as was... More
