Ostello Due Torri-San Sisto 2
Ranked #248 of 299 Bologna B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

Although this hostel wasn't terrible, I wouldn't have wanted to stay there for more than my two nights. It was very very basic (everything from the lumpy beds to dried bread for breakfast).

Pros:
Nice hot showers
Free pizza delivery service
Although no guest kitchen, there is a fridge and microwave available
Reasonably clean.

Cons:
Less than optimal location. Although the bus stop is just outside, the bus connection into the city isn't great and takes 20 minutes.
No toilet seats in the girls' bathroom.
Poor wifi.
Smelly bathroom.

Stayed: July 2014, traveled solo

Nos quedamos unos días y al estar en auto nos resultó.
En sí las habitaciones, duchas, baños y desayuno están bien, básico pero cómodo.
El problema fue el ante ultimo día... Cuando al rededor de las 18 hs una persona levanto la persiana, la trabo con dos palos de cada lado e intento robar lo que estuviese a mano. Afortunadamente estábamos muy cansados del viaje por lo que decidimos ese día dormir una breve siesta (y además no teníamos nada cerca de la ventana), por lo cual apenas vimos la persiana levantarse y la mano entrar por la ventana saltamos de la cama a echar a la quien estaba intentando robarnos.
Recomendaría que tengan mucho cuidado con las ventanas, tienen rejas, pero no olviden cerrarlas y no dejar nada cerca ya que cuando fuimos a avisar al personal ellos nos dijeron que ya había sucedido antes.
Por lo demás el lugar esta ok.

We stayed a few days and we found it OK.
Rooms, showers, bathrooms and breakfast are good, basic but comfortable.
The problem was the penultimate day... When around 6 pm someone raised the blind, placed two sticks on each side and tried to steal whatever was at hand. Fortunately we were very tired from traveling so we were in the room and also we did not have anything near the window, so when we saw and heard the blind mooving we jumped out of bed to scare away the person who was trying to steal from us.
I recommend to be very careful with the windows, do not forget to close them and leave nothing close because when we went to alert the staff they said it had happened before.
Otherwise the place is ok.

Firstly it's NOT very far from town, just 20mins bus ride. They give you bus time tables, maps and anything you need. So be smart and plan your day, yo! IT IS clean & cheapest stay around, but terrible wifi, worn out beds and hospital deco. makes it somewhat unpleasant. it's a huge building with lots of green areas. could be much much better and a bit cheaper also. still a good place to meet interesting people, though... your only other option is to pay 70euros in downtown. you choose, and dont't make a big deal about it.

This hostel was my first hostel, so at that time, there wasn't too much to be complained.

Everything was just okay, breakfast was normal (not tasty).
The only thing I want to complain is about the location. It's really far from the center! It's impossible to walk back! After 20:00, you have to take another bus, which probably takes about 1 hour for waiting.

Yet, there isn't too many choices for bologna.

Nothing to be expected, just an average hostel.

The good:
The place itself was nice, and the staff were OK. It was clean enough, and quiet.

The average: There was no place to sit during the day as they locked the dining hall, but you could stay in your room, or outside in the garden.

The bad:
The food was really awful: really cheap bread and cereals.
But the real problem was that it was too far from town (much too far to walk) and the buses to the hostel only ran until maybe 8.30 pm. After that, you had to get a different bus that left you at least 2km from the hostel, and even that bus did not run very late in the night.
For this reason alone, it is not a good location if your intention is to see Bologna.

The showers were horribely dirty and i have been stolen my passport, but the reception stuff was very rude and didn't want to help me. They told me that if I don't come back from the police office until 23h, that i will have to sleep outside the hostel, because after 11p.m. they are closing it, and you cannot get in. simply dirty and unkind!
