We stayed at this hostel for two nights. They were from hell. The premises look clean, nothing too fancy, just enough to get by. BUT, in our mixed room of 4 there was also a fifth bed that belong to the hostel housekeeper. Not the owner, but a dame in her fifties who did some cleaning around. She was really... More

I was in Bologna for 2 nights after finishing my 5 month voluntary work in Umbria as part of my celebration to unwind. The location is fairly central, staff were friendly and the place was clean to a good standard. This was more of a hostel than a B&B but I don't mind I'm more of a hostel person anyway... More

I stayed in this hostal three days. I didn't feel like home. There are some hostels where you really feel you are at home, so here I didn't. First, I had booked for a 5-bed room, and I finally got in a 8-mixed room. It was quite tough, because every person has different schedules, and so it's normal that at... More

Due to the staff also managing another accommodation, I had to wait an hour to check in (at 4pm). This was fine, however the staff were barely present for the entirety of my 2 nights/3 days there unless they were checking people in. The rooms themselves were great, it was nice to stay in a hostel without bunk beds. Each... More

Helpful and friendly staff, nice interior and comfy dorms. Our dorm had a window to the road, so it was a bit noisy. We still find the hostel really nice. Air-conditioning was really good to have in the heat of Italian summer. You could also get some breakfast from the fridge.

Really great hostel that is a 10 minute walk into the center, and around the corner from the nightlife street. Comfy beds, 2 clean showers and bathrooms with soap. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bread, jam, and pastries were available for breakfast and snacks 24/7. Would definitely stay here again
