I stayed for just one night and is that kind of hostels that are so impersonal and you don't feel really comfortable. There is no common area, nor a place to eat or drink something. The rooms are nice but very hot in summer and they just have one toilette-shower to share. The breakfast is amazing! You get a lot... More

The hostel was very good for a one night stay and offered good value for money even though i booked at short notice . It was not so far from the railwaystation and the receptionist was very helpful . I wish the rooms were a bit more spacious/clean. It looked a bit old. That was the only complaint. And the... More

Room clean, good value breakfast, good location for train station. However if you have 8am trains the start of 7.30 am for breakfast meant that we had to forego breakfast on some mornings of our 8 night stay

It's close to the city center and the main train and bus station. The breakfast is included and it's really good. There is also a small kitchen with microwave and stuff for cooking. There is free WiFi; towel and bed linen are included. The staff is really friendly. I definetly recommend it.

The hostel has a great location, not far from the train station. It also is very close to a lot of well-rated and cheap restaurants, and not far from the Bologna towers. The rooms were bunk beds, nothing special, but clean enough. The bathrooms were not the cleanest. Breakfast was included in the room price, and consisted of a simple... More

I spent three nights at Albergo Pallone in late February. It's conveniently located about 10 minutes' walk from the train station where the shuttle bus from the airport stops, and is not difficult to find. The staff speak English as well as Italian, and were very helpful in suggesting places to see and eat. The room was standard clean, slightly... More

You get what you pay for, right? The location seemed a little sketchy. I didn't want to go out too late because I didn't feel safe walking home alone. The staff wasn't very friendly or accomidating.
