“ok hostel”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

The hostel is clean, secure, and the staff is kind. However, it is quite far from the city center (20 min walk), and there is no kitchen, fridge, or dishes which means that you simply cannot eat there unless you pay for their breakfast. The internet worked perfectly. I would recommend it only for short stays, especially if you only need a place to crash in the night.

Located a good half-hour walk from the centre of Parma this hostel was certainly clean and spacious. I was able to get a good night's sleep but the entire place seemed dead: very few people around and very little to do in the immediate area. I found the place pleasant enough for a single day in Parma but anything more would have been far too much. Only one member of staff spoke good English but she was able to help with getting the wifi working properly.

Room Tip: My room had an en-suite shared between six people; surprisingly this worked fine.

I stayed here one night which was enough for me. The staff were very helpful and it was clean but the atmosphere was lacking energy and the communal rooms large and sterile! Location wise, once found it was good- outside the centre but close enough to walk or cycle although they had no bikes as stated in the Lonely Planet as they were being serviced so hired one in the city centre. Budget options are limited in Parma, with this being the only hostel I could find online.

If you expect an HI hostel having good internet, forget it. This hostel just used the city free internet, instead of having their own. The computer is slow. The room is only so so, charging expensively, even without breakfast. There is also no kitchen. Only one good thing, the staff is English speaking and attentive, although not much helpful. It is noisy because it is near highway entrance.

Room Tip: better get the room on the ground level so you can keep bugging the reception to reboot the router.
