Il Nosadillo
Ranked #6 of 122 Specialty Lodging in Bologna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 2, 2014

The location is great, like 5 minutes walking from downtown. If you arrive by train and you don't want to pay for bus or taxi you will need to walk from 20 to 30 minutes. The place is clean, warm and comfortable, it includes breakfast so you don't need to be worried about that. The hostess speaks english quite well and will give you tips about which places to visit and a map.

The hostel is a quaint Italian apartment which I liked very much and it made me feel very at home. There are two rooms with a number of beds in each, a kitchen, living area and two bathrooms. It's a great place if you want somewhere quiet. It was a bit of a hike initially from the train station but is not far from the center of town and other major sites.
I stayed here at the start of December and the rooms were very cold! However if I ever returned in the warmer months I would happily stay here again.

Dear Taylor! Thank you for spending a few minutes reviewing us. We really appreciate your opinion. It is a big pleasure for us that you enjoyed staying at Il Nosadillo and thank you for nice compliments about the hostel. We apologize that sometimes during the day the temperature in the rooms was not perfectly adequate to the weather outside. We have an automatic temperature control and unfortunately it had some technical problems sometimes. Now everything is fixed and works fine. We apologize for the inconvenience. We are so glad that you liked Il Nosadillo and want to come back. You are always welcome!

Very easy to find, just follow the directions! Very clean homely hostel. Large kitchen and common area. Staff very friendly and always willing to help. A 5 min walk finds you right in the middle of everything. It was like a home away from home! Will be back!

If you are looking to meet people in a friendly cosy place, then Nosadillo is definitely the place. It's set up as a 'home' with a couple of tables in the kitchen on which to share food & stories with the other travellers. The wonderful thing is that most of the rooms have just single beds and no bunk beds, so it's very comfortable. There is even a washing machine. Since there is no 24 hour reception, everyone is given a key and it means taking responsibility for sharing the hostel and looking after some of the other guests. If you do not like sharing, then this is definitely not the place to bed, better go to a hotel. Marinella is extraordinary and is always there when you need her. Olga is smiley and easy going and always ready to help.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms with the single beds over the rooms with double beds.

Your own bed, free breakfast and wifi, nice living room and kichen and most of all friendly, helpful people. Don't forget to ask the USE-IT map. Convenient if you are coming/going to the airport. Please note that on weekend days 'Marconi' is the bus stop where you should get off/on.

The hostel is situated 10 minutes walk from Piazza Maggiore. It's around 7 minutes walk from bus stop Ugo Bassi, when you get off from the Airport Shuttle bus. It is located on Via Nosadilla 19.
You can walk on foot everywhere from the hostel.
The service was very nice and friendly :):):) they advised us what we should see in Bologna and where to eat italian cuisine, which was great.
The rooms and kitchen with lounge are very cozy.
Wi-fi in a hostel is easily accessible and free.
There are a lot of leaflets about Bologna so you choose something for yourself to go and visit.
I strongly recommend staying there! :-)
