I stayed in a four bed room at this location and was pleasantly surprised at how much space we had. There was a small table and two chairs and we had ample space between beds. The bathroom was quite large and there was storage space and lockers ideally located behind a wall behind our beds, so there was some ability to take care of things without disturbing all your suite mates. The building has a massive kitchen downstairs shared with college students. Finding the proper utensils is a bit challenging as is the fact that only some people clean up after themselves, but it is a great option for staying in to cook. Easy walk from the train station and to downtown, cute bar and breakfast area, laundry facilities and 24 hour staff which is helpful as well.

The hostel itself is decent, the only real drawback is the half hour hike into town, and back again. For this though, you do get a semi-wooded quiet location. The kitchen is bigger than some hostels I've visited- yes really! There are at least six cooking stations with sinks and stovetops, hundreds of pots and pans, but maybe three knives, two forks and one spoon!? There were (locked) lockers in the kitchen with additional cookware, but I don't know who they are intended for. I certainly wasn't given access. The light switches are a leftover from when this building was a hotel- you have to leave a key card in a slot, and it was kind of annoying trying to turn on the bathroom light without turning on the room lights in the middle of the night. Not a dealbreaker though, as long as you don't mind walking a fair bit. Also, there is a large and cheap supermarket (Pam) nearby.

It’s close to the airport and reasonably cheap. We were just looking for a nice place to sleep. But we made a mistake booking a room a room in this place. What we experienced was nothing short of a disgrace. For this place holds a ‘concert’ several nights of the year. And it really is a right pain in the ear. 9pm rolled around and it really got wild. It was like they gave a drum set to a child. The music was awful and it just wasn’t right. And sadly it continued very late into the night. Around midnight I thought ‘I hope this ends soon’. This guitar has been played for 3 hours out of tune. But alas this ‘concert’ continued in the morning. I would have avoided this place if I had a fair warning.

Hello, Thank you for your comment. We host live concerts every thursday, only during summer season. We are located in a residential area, therefore our events usually finish at around midnight. We apologize if you didn’t like the music, but for sure during the morning you can ask at the reception to change it (we actually enjoy every kind of music). Nonetheless, the reception is always open if you have something to report.

I visited Ostello We Bologne earlier this week September 2019 on a small group adventure. I shared a room with 4 friends and the room was decent, clean, hot water and had wifi which was great. We stayed for 2 nights and as the first day ended after a long day of exploring Bologne I experienced bed bugs for the first time in my life and what a terrible experience it was. I had the first bottom bunk as you enter the room and I was the only one who was terribly bitten by huge bed bugs, I had no sleep and killed atleast 5 during the night. When I brought it to my tour guides attention, she immediately spoke to reception and asked if we could please be moved to another room, the response from the hostel management was shocking! They were not helpful at all and insinuated that I brought the bed bugs with me, as mentioned it was my very first experience with bed bugs and the place we stayed at before Ostello We Bologne had no bugs! The matter was escalated and they requested that all 4 of us wash all our clothes (a huge suitcase full) at our own expense which we did and we were then moved to another room only for me to get bitten with bed bugs again in the new room. What a terrible experience and I also saw another review where someone else had the same problem. For them to suggest I brought the bugs with me was poor also the next place we stayed at after I had no bug issues. Terrible service!
