I stayed for quite a long period in the old hostel in Reggio Emilia years ago, and this new hostel is run by the same, very friendly people. Nice to see continuity. The hostel is located in an old religious building, the rooms looking onto the inner courtyard. The courtyard is used as an al fresco dining area and concert... More

This hostel was a delight to behold with high vaulted ceilings and wide corridors. Meals were great although late. Laundry facilities on site and available. Wide screen viewing of the Olympics for olympic starved travellers. But due to a faulty door lock we were robbed of cameras and I phones. Management were initially reluctant to contact the police. Statement very... More
