The BOLA Cultural Hostel is part of the House of Cultures Ruhr and is located in the city triangle BOCHUM - ESSEN - HATTINGEN. It is a congress centre and a place to meet and learn. The hostel is located More very close to Ruhrtal bicycle route in a beautiful, quiet nature reservation area and still close to the town and very well connected by public transport. You can make lovely walks here, practice sports, go biking, relax, visit the Railway Museum and much more. All while being only a short travel away from the cultural centers of the Ruhr area, Essen, Bochum, Dortmund and many more. We devote the BOLA. House of Cultures to all peaceful, creative, intercultural and holistic interested people and initiatives! Also you are always welcome as guests, participants or partners! Yours BOLA Hostel Team Less
