“A top place with very nice staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

The Central Hostel in Bergamo is a little oasis in the heart of the town. The prices are good and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I've stayed once there after missing a flight. One of the girls on the staff printed out the new ticket I had to book. On another occasion, I had to kill several hours in Bergamo before another flight. I had a rucksack on my back, which I did not want to carry around in the heat. I left it at the hostel's baggage store room for a couple of hours and had a nice walk along the cobbled streets of Cita Alta, As a whole, I could strongly recommend this place. It's very central and one gets good service and amiable personnel.:-)

The hostel is within a few minutes' walk from the railway station. You can check in until late and contact the staff on the phone if anything delays you and you have to check in `even later'. The rooms are big and clean, equipped with more than you would expect from a hostel: TVs, safe boxes, towels. Some rooms have air conditioning. For late arrivers, there is a vending machine downstairs for inexpensive drinks and snacks.

This is my to-go place for pre-post flight stays in Bergamo.

we werent even guests here - but wish we had been. just stopped in to ask some questions while we have a few hours to kill in Bergamo and they were so helpful, they let us use their internet and luggage storage so we could wander the city while we waited for our evening flight.

the rooms look great and the staff are great.

would recommend this hostel to anyone!

upon my arrival to the city of bergamo, I came across this hotel, fairly close to the center of the city, I parked my car on the sidewalk, got out with my family to ask for availability and price(5mins max) when I cmae back I founs out that someone had forced the drivers door lock and stole my personal luggage, I went back to the front desk to ask for assistance to see if they could call the police for me, and the girl working the counter told me that she couldn't do that, she only provided me with the phone number for me to call the police, I guess the hotel don't call so that kind of delinquent activity doesn't stay in their records, thays why im making you aware of it. freee Wi-Fi, if you are a backpacker you will love this place, very basic, breakfast was very basic,beds were o.k, bathrooms were clean enough. good for one night.

Okay beds. Maybe a little papery walls. Clean bathroom.
Breakfast self-service ;( and not very good. Coffee automat etc.

Very helpful and friendly staff. Secure parking which was locked at night. Close to all major attractions in beautiful Bergamo. Free wifi. Large clean room though quite 'echoy' so lots of referred noise from corridors and other rooms. Breakfast was VERY basic. Overall quite adequate but as I was on a trip taking in 5 countries around the alps and stayed in lots of hotels/guesthouses at the same price which were of a higher standard I didn't think it was that cheap for the 'budget' option. But also I wouldn't have a big problem staying here again either.
